The CWAG discounted room rates are also available 3 days pre and post meeting, subject to room availability.

As San Francisco is a premier destination during the summer months, we strongly encourage you to make your hotel reservations first, then your air reservations, as soon as possible. The last possible day to reserve room reservations within the CWAG room block is July 7, 2017. If the room block sells out prior to that time, reservations will only be accepted on a space available basis.

Only registered CWAG attendees and their registered guests/families will be permitted to reserve a room at our discounted rates.
