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 must be reserved through the SXSW Eco Housing Department. After you register online and your registration is paid for (or a purchase order number has been associated with the registration), you can request your hotel accommodations in one of two ways:

  1. The Shopping Cart: Registrants can book a room, change an existing reservation or cancel housing entirely via the same shopping cart used to purchase a registration. Log in, click on the SXSW Eco tab and choose SXSW Hotels at the bottom of the drop down menu. The cart will list all badges that have been purchased and there is a link to “Request Hotel” next to each new registrant. Using the shopping cart is recommended for companies who are submitting multiple hotel requests for multiple registrants.

  2. SXsocial Account: Registrants can book a room, change an existing reservation or cancel housing entirely via the Eco Social account. The "Welcome to Eco Social" e-mail you received when you were registered contains a unique code to link a current SXSW registration with the registrant's SXsocial account. Registrants can then log into their existing Eco Social account, or they can create one. Click the "Hotels" tab at the top of the page to submit a hotel request or edit an existing reservation.

Please see our Hotel Payment, Policies & Penalties page for details on fees and other policies.
