Reserve Accommodations at an Official OTC Hotel

When booking hotel arrangements, you have many options, but some can be time consuming and the benefits don’t always pay off. Save time and benefit from additional services when you book through OTC’s housing provider, Experient.

Event Housing SealTo reserve a hotel room through Experient:
1. Choose a hotel from the official list below
2. Be prepared to put down a credit card guarantee/one night’s deposit
3. Through the registration process, make a hotel reservation online.

Hotel Cancellation Policy
Hotels with * have a 72-hour cancellation policy. Remaining hotel room reservations can be canceled with no penalty until 1800 hours (ET) on 30 March 2018. After this time, hotels will charge a non-refundable 1-night room and tax deposit on all current reservations. If you reserve your hotel after 30 March, the non-refundable 1-night room and tax deposit will be charged as soon as the reservation is received by the hotel.

Failure to check in on your scheduled day of arrival (no-show), will result in forfeiture of your deposit and your room will be released by the hotel.
