Waiting List for Hotels Outside of Downtown

Written by Lynda Pyle | November 21, 2013

All SXSW hotels are now sold out for Interactive and Film conference dates (March 7-11), but a wait list is available for Interactive, Film, Gold and Platinum registrants who need hotel accommodations for those nights. To submit an online wait list request you can return to the SXSW Shopping Cart where you purchased your registration or the SXSocial account linked to your registration record. Once you’re in the Hotel Requester choose Best Available (Non-Downtown Hotels) from the hotel drop down menu and when you submit the request you’ll be added to the waiting list.

Wait list requests will be processed in the order received. The SXSW Housing Department will search for available hotels on the shuttle route that are nearest the Austin Convention Center (ACC). You’ll be contacted when a room becomes available for you. Please keep in mind, rooms only become available when others change or cancel plans, which historically doesn’t happen until February. Remember, the wait list does not guarantee accommodations.

Music registrants still have a few downtown options and several outside of downtown from which to choose. So don’t delay, submit your request today. For more details, see our Housing FAQs and How to Book. If you have any questions email housing@sxsw.com. We look forward to seeing you soon!
