To reserve a hotel room through Experient:
1. Choose a hotel from the official list below
2. Be prepared to put down a credit card guarantee/one night’s deposit
3. Through the registration process, make a hotel reservation online»
Hotel Cancellation Policy
Room reservations can be cancelled with no penalty until 1800 hours (ET) on 31 March 2017. After this time, hotels will charge a non-refundable 1 night room and tax deposit on all current reservations. If you reserve your hotel after 1 April, the non-refundable 1 night room and tax deposit will be charged as soon as the reservation is received by the hotel.
Failure to check in on your scheduled day of arrival (no-show), will result in forfeiture of your deposit and your room will be released by the hotel.
Note: Experient is the official housing and travel coordinator for OTC. No other hotel/housing provider is authorized to contact you on behalf of OTC. We will vigorously pursue these other companies to prevent unauthorized contact.
