Why Book at the CHI 2012 Hotels?

In order to obtain the special conference rate attendees must make hotel reservations through the Austin Housing Bureau, the official housing bureau for CHI 2012. This site offers one-stop reservations for CHI 2012 attendees and accepts reservations online or by fax. Utilizing the housing bureau also allows us to keep our conference costs low and continue to offer room blocks for our attendees.

Plus, all official CHI 2012 hotels offer complimentary internet in your guest room. Attendees booking through any other mechanism will not receive complimentary internet.

CHI 2012 works hard to make sure that the conference rate is competitive, and monitor the hotel’s other rates to make sure that our attendees are receiving the best deal. Your stay helps SIGCHI meet our obligation to the hotel, allowing us to keep registration rates low. Without your hotel stay, ACM may be assessed a financial penalty. This would jeopardize our ability to provide quality conference opportunities in the future.

Hotel Reservations

Official CHI 2012 hotels will not accept reservations directly. Reservations must be made through the housing bureau
