Hotel Nikko will also be the primary lodging for ISWC 2011. For your convenience, ISWC 2011 has negotiated reduced room rates ($179 Deluxe King Bed and $199 Deluxe Double Beds, before tax). Staying at the official conference hotel helps keep overall conference costs low and allows us to offer more affordable rates to attendees.

Note that all reservations must be guaranteed by a credit card (number, expiration date and name as it appears on the card) or advance payment equal to one night room and tax.

Individual guestroom deposits will be refunded if reservations are cancelled 72 hours prior to the day of arrival and a cancellation number is obtained.

The cutoff date for reserving rooms is May 13, 2011. However, there are a limited number of double bed rooms so reservations for those rooms should be made as early as possible.

All conference attendees staying at the Hotel Nikko will be provided with free in-room internet access. Additionally, the conference rates will apply for 3 days before and after the conference.


The Hotel Nikko is within walking distance of multiple subway (BART) and bus (MUNI) stops. Due to the difficulty of finding parking in San Francisco we highly recommend that attendees consider using public transportation.

Traveling between Airport and Hotel
San Francisco International Airport (SFO) is approximately 14 miles from the Hotel Nikko. Attendees have many options for traveling between SFO and the hotel:
