Make Your SC15 Hotel Reservation Now
The SC15 reservation system is now open. If you are planning to attend, reserve your room now for the best choice of hotels and rates.
SC15 has only one authorized contractor for arranging hotel rooms: Orchid Event Solutions. The conference is not responsible for hotels or rates offered by travel agents or other organizations who say they are speaking on behalf of SC15. To avoid potential problems with your reservation, please be sure to use the forms accessible from this webpage.

Choosing a Hotel
Most SC15 hotels are located within a few blocks of the Convention Center. Bus transportation will be provided to/from any conference hotels farther than .5 miles.
A range of prices is available, and free internet access is included with all rooms booked through our hotel reservation website. Check individual hotel sites for details about on-site restaurants, fitness centers, and other amenities.
Making Your Hotel Reservation
Reservations will not be accepted without a room deposit of one night’s room rental plus tax for each room reserved. A credit card is required for this; no checks, cash or money orders will be accepted. Requests that do not include a valid credit card will be returned without processing. Note that the credit card must be valid through November 2015.
- Online reservations: Use the online reservation system to reserve up to 10 hotel rooms. This is the preferred method for making reservations.
- Phone reservations: Call Orchid Event Solutions toll-free at 888-665-1371 (International: 801-505-5264), between 9am and 8pm Eastern Time, Monday through Friday.
- Paper request form: Complete and mail the SC15 hotel request form to Orchid Event Solutions at:
Orchid Event Solutions - SC15 Housing
175 South West Temple, Suite 30
Salt Lake City, Utah 84101, USA
You may also fax the form to: 801-355-0250. Only fully completed forms will be accepted. Do not send the form directly to a hotel, as this will only delay the processing of your request.
The last day for requesting reservations is Friday, October 16, 2015.
Watch for Your Confirmation
Rooms will be reserved on a first come, first served basis. A confirmation from Orchid Event Solutions – not the hotel – will be sent for each reservation, modification or cancellation. Email confirmations will have the return address of “SC15”, so you may need to watch your spam file.
Please review your confirmation carefully for accuracy. If, after 10 days, you have not received a confirmation, please notify Orchid Event Solutions using the contact information at the bottom of the page.
If You Need to Make a Change or Cancel Your Room
Although your reservation will be confirmed by Orchid Event Solutions, your hotel will not receive information about your reservation until November 4, 2015. Before that date, be sure to contact Orchid Event Solutions – not the hotel – with any questions or changes to your rooms. (See contact information at the bottom of the page)
Reservations can be modified or canceled without penalty no later than October 16, 2015. After this date and up to 72 hours prior to arrival, cancellations will be subject to a $125 penalty. Any cancellations within 72 hours of arrival are subject to one night's room and tax penalty at your confirmed hotel. Be sure to go through Orchid Event Solutions – not the hotel – up to and including November 4, 2015.
If you have housing questions, send email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call toll-free at 888-665-1371 (International: 801-505-5264), between 9am and 8pm Eastern Time, Monday through Friday. You may also send a fax to 801-355-0250.
