ACS only endorses room reservations booked through Orchid Event Solutions.

ACS contracts a wide selection of hotel rooms with competitive rates located close to the host city's Convention Center. All attendees who book their room through the official housing bureau [Orchid Event Solutions] will receive complimentary Internet access in the rooms. Support of our official meeting hotels helps us keep registration fees to a minimum.

Special Rates

Discounted rates may apply when you book through Orchid Event Solutions. (I.e., Discounts won’t be given if you book directly through the hotel.)

Economical Alternative

The following hotels are not part of the official ACS housing block but may be of interest to attendees on a restricted budget. Make your reservations directly with these properties and ask for the listed ACS rate. Properties are not included on the ACS shuttle route; therefore, daily transportation costs are the responsibility of the attendee.

  • King George Hotel, 334 Mason Street at Geary; [415-781-5050] ACS rate $159 single/double occupancy.
