All official Otakon 2021 hotel room blocks are handled by our official housing provider, Maritz Global Events.  Not all hotels in the list below may still be available!  We've been able to extend the deadline on some hotels, but be sure to book soon!

Maritz Global Events (formarly Experient) is the official housing provider for the 2021 Otakon Convention. Solicitation of hotel reservations from any other company is not authorized by Otakon and may not have accurate room inventory, unreasonable cancellation or change penalties, or be completely non-refundable.

Please be aware of and report any unauthorized solicitation to Maritz Global Events (see contact info at the bottom of this page).

The true success of the Otakon convention depends on the support of our members.  We are urging all members to book hotel rooms in the Otakon block so that we can show the city the value that we bring in each year and so that we can continue offering the best venues and programming while keeping our costs low.

Booking rooms direct or on your own, does not give us the ability to count your hotel participation so please be encouraged to support the convention by booking in our block.

Skip the Front Desk!

Bypass the Front Desk at Marriott hotels and check-in right on your phone using the Mobile Key in the Marriott Bonvoy App.  Available on Android and iOS.

"Sold Out" Hotels

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 $210 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 rates will depend on the hotel and the lot used.
