Enjoy your stay at partnering hotels

We have negotiated special F8 rates with hotels that are located near the convention center. These rates are available for a limited time, based on hotel availability. You can book F8 rooms as part of your online registration process. Please note the nightly rate and cancellation policy for each hotel below. All hotel costs and cancellation penalties (if applicable) are paid by the attendee. If you need to add a room to your F8 registration, make changes to your reservation or cancel the room, simply modify your booking in your F8 registration profile, based on the terms of the hotel's cancellation policy.
