SXSW Housing: Better Hotel Rates for SXSW Registrants

JW Hotel Standard Room

All SXSW registrants can enjoy the best rates at all SXSW participating hotels if they make their reservations through SXSW Housing & Travel. Many of our fine Austin hotels offer even deeper discounts for the second half of SXSW. Even at our most sought after downtown properties, rates are more affordable before the final weekend of SXSW. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to experience all of SXSW.

When shopping our availability page prior to our Monday, August 1 launch, we recommend you try different sets of dates, as rates vary by night. Click “see all amenities” to view rates by room type by night. This is a great place to see what hotels we work with before SXSW Housing and Registration go on sale August 1.

Taking advantage of the lower rates and staying through the second weekend of SXSW doesn’t just give you the opportunity to enjoy more conference sessions, but you can also get the most out of Music Festival showcases, SXSW Gaming, Music Gear Expo, Flatstock poster show, Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality sessions, and more!

Check out our Housing News for the most up-to-date information from SXSW Housing & Travel and pro tips for registering and booking a hotel for SXSW 2017 on August 1.
