Hotel reservation is open now

The UIST conference takes place at the Westin Seattle hotel. The Westin is your front door to the Emerald City, the jewel of the Pacific Northwest! An ideal urban retreat, it is just steps away from the Washington State Convention Center, Pike Place Market, and Seattle's most enticing shops.

The Westin Hotel is one of only two hotels in the city offering unobstructed views of Puget Sound, Lake Union, and the Seattle skyline. After a day of meetings and sightseeing, relax and unwind in the elegant Lobby Bar, featuring a full-service bar and flat-screen TVs. For breakfast or lunch stop by the Fifth Avenue Corner Cafe for light fare and snacks.

Enjoy modern elegance in the Westin's newly renovated lobby, the "heart of the hotel." WiFi Internet access and a cozy gathering space make it perfect for hosting a casual meeting or simply catching up with friends.

We have reserved a block of rooms at the special conference rate of $169/night per room (single or double occupancy). The Hotel will honor the group rate for reservations in excess of the room block, based on availability. Reservations must be made by Sunday September 24 to obtain this rate.

Note: Please be sure to register at the conference hotel. UIST receives complimentary use of hotel meeting rooms only if we meet our attendee guest room quota. If we do not meet the quota, we are obligated to pay substantial rental fees for the meeting rooms, which will result in scaled-back food service this year and significantly increased registration fees next year. So, please stay at the conference hotel.

Hotel reservations for The Westin may be made in any of three ways, in each case being sure to mention "ACM UIST 2005":

Update: For Sunday, the special UIST room rate is not available. Also, the Westin may be booked out for the first day of the conference. For a period that includes a booked-out day, the online reservation tool will return no results, so it might require some iteration to find out which days are available.
