Travel Housing Information

The ISTE 2012 online housing site is now closed. If you need to update an existing reservation, please contact your hotel directly.

For alternate housing opportunities, check individual hotel availabilities (using or other sites), or visit Vacation Rentals by Owner (VRBO) for a unique San Diego experience. Another tip is to check the ISTE 2012 Ning to see what others are doing for last minute housing.

Online Reservations (top)

Welcome to ISTE 2012's online housing reservation system. It features an interactive map and real-time inventory that allows you to see what rooms are currently available at each hotel, and gives you instant confirmation of your selection. Rooms at ISTE 2012 will go quickly, so be sure to make your reservations as soon as possible! Also, please thoroughly read our cancellation policy below.

You may wish to look at the list of conference hotels and map before entering the online system; it allows you to compare amenities at the different hotels at a glance.

You may also view or print a copy of the Housing Brochure (PDF)

Fax or Mail Reservations (top)

You may prefer to print out the Housing Form (PDF) and fax or mail in your reservation. We do, however, encourage you to use the online system. Form processing is subject to standard delays related to handling U.S. mail, and the rooms you request may not be available when your form is received, in which case you will be placed in a hotel based on availability. Faxed or mailed housing forms requesting new reservations must be received at the Housing Bureau no later than May 14, 2012. Do not send housing forms with your conference registration.

Payment Information (top)

All room reservations require a valid credit card with an expiration date of July 2012 or after to process your reservation. Your credit card is required as a guarantee and may be charged in advance of your arrival. Your card will be charged if you cancel after the cancellation deadline or if you fail to show up on your expected arrival date. (Be sure to read the cancellation policy below). Should you wish to pay by check, please plan to hand-carry the check with you to the hotel and provide it at check-in. Do not send any check deposits to the housing bureau or the hotels prior to arrival.

All charges are subject to a 12.5% state and room tax. Some hotels may also attach additional surcharges. Please verify these charges directly with the hotel upon receipt of your acknowledgment. All hotels will require a credit card or an approximated amount of cash for incidentals for the entire stay upon check-in.

A note about phishing scams
Any company or travel agency contacting you directly is not affiliated with ISTE in any way. While we may contact you for clarification once you've submitted a reservation, ISTE will not contact you by phone, email, fax, or mail to sell you a room. Find out more...

Confirmations (top)

Reservations made online will receive confirmations via email within 24 hours, if a valid email address has been provided. If no email has been provided, or if email sent to you is returned undeliverable, you will receive a confirmation via fax or regular mail within 5–7 business days.

Reservations made via fax or regular mail using the housing reservation form (PDF) will be processed on a first-come basis and confirmed within 5–7 business days via email, if a valid email address has been provided, or by fax or regular mail.

If you do not receive a confirmation of your hotel reservation within 7 days, please contact the ISTE 2012 Housing Bureau at 1.866.229.2386.

Hotels will not be sending individual confirmations—you will be able to use your housing bureau acknowledgment upon check-in as proof of your reservation.
