Getting a Room

SXSW Eco has contracted blocks of guest rooms for registered Eco attendees at several quality hotels near the Austin Convention Center. A limited number of rooms are available at these rates. We encourage you to book your hotel when you register because hotels are very likely to sell out.

These rooms can only be reserved through the SXSW Eco Housing Desk after you have registered for the conference. You can access the hotel booking page in one of two ways:

  1. After you register online and your registration is paid for (or a Purchase Order number has been associated with the registration) your SXSW Eco Shopping Cart will display a link to the hotel requester.
  2. Your registration confirmation email contains a link to activate your Eco Social account. From there you can access your hotel requester.

You’ll be required to provide a valid credit card to guarantee the reservation and process the $6 booking fee. Please see our Hotel Payment, Policies & Penalties page for details on fees and other policies.

After selecting your check-in and out dates to see accurate availability, click any hotel name to see a photo, its distance from the Austin Convention Center, amenities, and policies unique to that property. Click here to view the hotel map.
