Hotel Booking

UPDATE: An alternate hotel has been added with special rates starting at $145/night. Scroll down for more information and booking instructions.

Hotel booking closes August 9th, 2024. Reserve your room before then to lock in the special rates!

The convention will be hosted at the DoubleTree San Francisco Airport Hotel conveniently located within minutes of San Francisco International Airport in Burlingame, CA. The convention starts on Friday August 30 at 4:00pm and ends on Sunday September 1 around 3:00pm.

The current special rate at the DoubleTree is $165/night for single rooms and $175/night for double rooms. Room rates includes breakfast for one person with additional breakfasts for $10/person. Lower rates may be available on nights before/after the convention for those wishing to arrive earlier/stay later.

Convention Hotel Booking Instructions (DoubleTree)

  1. Start by clicking “Book a Room” on the reservation link. On the next screen, at the top, to the far right of “Your Stay” click “EDIT STAY.”  Enter your check-in and check-out days.  If more than one person will occupy the room, change the number of guests as the room rate adds $10 for each additional person’s breakfast.  Click “Update” to confirm your choices.
  2. If you are on the hotel’s reservation site for our event and see room rates greater than the special rates listed above in the 8/30-9/1 period, do not complete your booking and instead email us at [email protected] so we can address the issue with the hotel. We will advise you when you can complete your reservation.
  3. If you are unsure whether you will have a 2nd, 3rd, or 4th person staying in your room, enter the number of guests you expect.  During check-in you can change the number of guests to ensure that everyone who wants a breakfast will get one and your room rate will be adjusted accordingly.
  4. Parking is complimentary for all convention attendees. Ignore the self-parking option on the hotel website.

Special Note about Cancellations
Please email hotel@mawsconvention.org before cancelling your reservation! This will allow us to recover rooms at lower rates for those who still need a hotel room. The hotel will allow us to modify reservations to substitute in other guests with new names and credit card numbers and may let us change the dates the freed up rooms can be used on (for example, an unused Wed and Thursday can be shifted to Fri and Sat). So please let us try to help others with the best room rates if you are cancelling any nights. Thank you!

Alternate Hotel Booking Instructions (Embassy Suites)

Embassy Suites Waterfront at 150 Anza Blvd, Burlingame, has offered us a room block at $145/night (single or double occupancy) or $165 (triple) or $185 (quad) for Friday and Saturday nights. It is 0.2 miles (an easy 5-minute walk) from the DoubleTree Hotel. The rates include breakfast, complimentary parking, and a free airport shuttle. This hotel has a pool and hot tub. If you have not booked a room with DoubleTree yet, a double occupancy room at Embassy Suites will cost about $55 less for a 2-night stay than the current rate at DoubleTree. 

If you are interested in booking additional nights at our special rate, book the 2-night stay then send an email to [email protected] with your name, reservation number, and the nights you would like added to your stay. We will contact the hotel to see if they can offer our rate on the additional nights.

Finding a Roommate
We have created a WhatsApp group for members who are interested in sharing a hotel room with other members to reduce costs. We will not assist members in finding roommates and are not liable for any roommate pairing that occurs via the WhatsApp group. We encourage members to communicate with any potential roommate so that both parties feel safe and comfortable sharing a room during the convention. Email [email protected] to join the WhatsApp group.
