Hotel Information

ORCID has reserved a block of rooms at the Courtyard San Francisco Downtown, a short 10 minute walk from the conference venue.  These rooms are held on a first-come, first-served basis at the discounted rate of US$294, including internet access but excluding state and local occupancy taxes. Please note that our room blocks usually fill quickly, so we suggest you make your hotel and travel plans early.

By staying at the official conference hotel, you will help keep our Outreach Meeting costs down, since ORCID guarantees the hotel that we will fill a certain number of rooms during the conference and will incur penalties if we are unable to fill our room block. Thank you for your support!
