No official event hotel will accept new reservations by phone. The confirmation will also provide details on making changes or cancellations. Please note a cancelled Midwinter registration forfeits your hotel reservation.

We encourage you to register for Midwinter early in order to make hotel reservations early, as the hotel will likely sell out. Official event hotel rooms are in high demand and only available to registered, paid attendees

Unauthorized Hotel Solicitation

If a third-party contacts you offering housing options, they are not endorsed by or affiliated with the event and entering into financial agreements with such companies may have costly consequences.
