Hotel Reservation Discount Deadline: Extended to March 14, 2003

Why should you stay in the headquarter hotel?
We encourage you to stay in the conference hotel and when making your reservation to identify yourself as a USENIX conference attendee.

It is by contracting rooms for our attendees that we can significantly reduce hotel charges for meeting room rental. And, when the sleeping rooms are not utilized, we face significant financial penalties. As a result, these penalties force us to ultimately raise registration fees.

We recognize, however, that not everyone can afford to stay in the conference hotel so we always try to book venues that have some low-cost alternatives available nearby the conference.

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

USENIX has negotiated special rates for conference attendees at the Red Lion Hotel on 5th Avenue. Please make your reservation as soon as possible by contacting the hotel directly. You must mention USENIX or USITS to get the special group rate. To cancel your reservation, you must notify the hotel at least 24 hours prior to your planned arrival date.
