Why should you stay in the headquarters hotel?
We strongly encourage you to stay in the conference hotel and when making your reservation to identify yourself as a USENIX conference attendee. By staying at the headquarters hotel, you not only help us keep registration fees low, but you also get valuable discounts on local attractions and on in-room connectivity.

By contracting rooms for our attendees, we significantly reduce hotel charges for meeting room rental. When those sleeping rooms are not occupied, we face significant financial penalties. Those penalties ultimately force us to raise registration fees.

With costs going higher and higher, we are working hard to negotiate the very best hotel rates for you and to keep other conference expenses down, in order to keep registration fees as low as possible. We appreciate your help in this endeavor.

Anaheim's location in the Los Angeles metropolitan area makes it easily accessible by air. The three closest airports are Orange County/John Wayne (15 miles SE), Long Beach (20 miles N), and Los Angeles (LAX) (35 miles NW), all of which are served by major airlines. Shuttle service to the hotels is easily accessible from LAX and Orange County. Other airports serving the region include Ontario (35 miles NE) and Burbank/Bob Hope (40 miles NW).
