Once there fill out the form and it will give you the most up to date list of rooms in a single hotel that meet your request. Please be aware that our only housing vendor is Experient. Any rooms booked outside our housing vendor may not be at the same room rates and may carry additional fees.
Below is a list of hotels in the Baltimore area that are available as of this announcement. More may be added as we finalize additional agreements.
Regarding "Sold Out" Hotels: Just because the Otakon room rate is sold out, it never hurts to call once in a while to confirm whether or not the room block *REALLY* is sold out. You can occasionally get lucky with someone dropping their reservation. Also, a sold out room rate doesn't necessarily mean the hotel is completely sold out. However, rooms booked OUTSIDE of the Otakon room blocks are subject to standard hotel pricing. We cannot secure or guarantee any prices outside of our room blocks : this means that while a room might normally be $169 under the Otakon rate, it might be $250+ if booked outside of the Otakon room block.
Room rates generally do NOT include parking fees. Please check with the hotel for the exact rate. Parking will run anywhere from $10 to $30 per night, depending on the hotel and the lot used.
Please refer to the map of hotels around the convention center if you're not clear where a particular hotel is located.
Alternatively you can check out this map for hotels that we may not have arrangements with.
