Why Book in one of our contracted hotels?
Our contracted hotels are partner hotels in Team San Jose, the public-private partnership that runs convention facilities here, including the McEnery Convention Center. By booking inside of our room block, you help Worldcon 76 meet its contractual obligations with TSJ and reduce our cost of renting the Convention Center. In addition, all our partner hotels rebate $15/room night back to Worldcon 76. Those rebate funds will also be used towards our expenses at McEnery. Thus, by booking rooms in one of our contract hotels, you help us pay for our venue two different ways!
