Enjoy Lower Rates

SXSW Gaming registrants get access to hotels at the lowest rates available during SXSW by making reservations through SXSW Housing & Travel. As many SXSW Gaming veterans know, hotels might charge as much as double if booked outside of SXSW Housing & Travel due to the overwhelming amount of people visiting Austin the week of the festival.

Enjoy even greater savings during the second half of SXSW while attending SXSW Gaming. If you plan to arrive and enjoy SXSW after March 13, you can experience even lower rates at budget friendly hotels just outside of downtown and even at our most sought after downtown properties. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to fully experience all of SXSW with the utmost convenience.

Shop Before You Buy

To see availability before buying your wristband, visit our official SXSW Housing availability page. If your plans are flexible, we recommend you try a different set of dates, as rates vary by night. Choose ‘See Details’ to view amenities, services, and any additional details necessary to make the right purchase.

Explore All of Austin and SXSW

Taking advantage of our lower rates and staying through the weekend during SXSW Gaming doesn’t just give you the opportunity to enjoy the festival, you can also get the most out of the SXSW Marketplace, Flatstock poster show, Outdoor Stage at Lady Bird Lake, and more!
