Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a deposit required to book a hotel room at the Westin?

Yes – we will be requiring a nonrefundable, one-night deposit for rooms in the hotel block. This will be charged in December or January, depending on when you made your reservation. Anyone whose payment is declined will have one week following the initial charge to resolve any issues.  

You may notice the room rate changes depending on if you have three or four people in your room, but you won’t be charged for the additional occupancy when you check out – the rates listed above are what you will pay based on your room type. 

Are there suites available to book?

Unfortunately, suites in the Westin will not be available in this year’s room block. Suites in our overflow hotels can be booked by calling the hotels directly, if desired. However, they do not get the convention rate.  

Are Accessibility-friendly rooms available?

The Westin Harbour Castle offers Accessible rooms upon request, subject to availability. To request one of these rooms, book a regular room through the booking links above, then contact the hotel by phone or email and request an Accessible room.

What is the cancellation policy for hotel rooms?

The one-night deposit charged for each booking is nonrefundable and cannot be returned regardless of cancellation reason. In addition, any rooms reserved using an early access perk will automatically be cancelled if the associated registration is refunded

Can I book a hotel room if I'm a minor?

No, you must be at least 18 years of age to book a hotel room.

I couldn't book a hotel room, or the website shows no rooms are available. What do I do?

If you aren't able to find a room with the dates you're looking for, see if rooms are available on different check-in and check-out dates. You can also call the hotel directly and ask them to check for availability within our hotel block.

We'll announce any updates if more rooms become available on our website and social media channels.

How many rooms can I book within the room block?

Each attendee may book one (1) room within the block. We understand that some attendees may desire to book multiple rooms for various reasons. However, we want to give each attendee an opportunity to reserve a room.
