Hotels at SXSWedu


SXSWedu has blocked guest rooms for registered attendees at the Hilton Austin Downtown and other nearby hotels. Rates and availability are displayed in the list below. Click on the hotel name to see more information about the hotel and its amenities.

These rooms must be reserved through the SXSWedu Housing Desk. 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. Your Shopping Cart: Log into the shopping cart that was used to purchase your registration and click on the SXSWedu tab and choose SXSWedu Hotels at the bottom of the drop down menu. Your cart will list all badges that have been purchased and there is a link to “Request Hotel” next to each name that was assigned. That link will allow you to request your hotel accommodations and will pre-fill your contact information. Simply enter your dates and choose a hotel and room type that is offered on the drop-down list based on those dates.
  2. Your eduSocial Account: You can book a room, change an existing reservation or cancel your housing entirely via your eduSocial account. Your registration confirmation e-mail contains a unique link to activate your current SXSWedu registration with your eduSocial account. You’ll then log into your existing eduSocial account or you can create one.

You will be required to provide a valid credit card to guarantee the reservation, but the hotel will not charge at the time you reserve your hotel. You will be responsible for providing a method of payment to the hotel when you arrive to check in.

A limited number of rooms are available at these rates. We encourage you to book your hotel accommodations as early as possible as they are sold on a first come, first served basis.

Visit the Housing FAQ for more information or contact the SXSWedu Housing Desk by e-mail or phone (512-467-7979).
