Better Hotel Rates for SXSW Registrants

Austin Skyline from ACC

Enjoy Lower Rates

SXSW registrants get access to SXSW hotels at the lowest rates available by making reservations through SXSW Housing & Travel. As SXSW veterans know, hotels might charge as much as double if booked outside of SXSW Housing & Travel.

Many of our fine Austin hotels offer even deeper rate discounts for the second half of SXSW. Arrive after March 13 and experience even lower rates at budget friendly hotels just outside of downtown and even at our most sought after downtown properties. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to experience all of SXSW.

Shop Before You Buy

To see availability before registering, visit our availability page. If your plans are flexible, we recommend you try different sets of dates, as rates vary by night. Choose ‘See Details’ to view rates by room type by night. Once you’re registered just follow these simple steps to book your hotel.

Explore All of SXSW

Taking advantage of our 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, Flatstock poster show, Virtual Reality/Augmented Reality sessions, and more!
