Popular hotels sell out every year, but booking early helps ensure a room at your preferred hotel. SXSW Housing has guaranteed group rates at more than 70 of Austin's best hotels -- from the finest downtown hotels to budget-friendly properties nearby, from apartment-style comfort to tranquil hill country settings. See the hotel list with rates here and an interactive map of available hotels can be found here. This information will be updated daily as hotels sell out and availability changes.

There is no deadline for hotel reservations—the Housing Desk continues booking rooms throughout the event—but downtown hotels often sell out as early as August. Most SXSW hotels outside easy walking distance will be on the SXSW Hotel Shuttle routes available to SXSW attendees with a shuttle pass. Visit our Hotel Shuttle page for details, including hours of operation and a full list of hotels on the shuttle route.
