Hotel Accommodations

October is one of the busiest months for hotels in San Francisco and sleeping room rates tend to be higher than normal. As such, we encourage you to book your accommodations as soon as possible to secure the lowest possible rate.

Our LeanStartup Conference hotel room blocks have filled up, but we want to make sure you can still find the best place to stay in San Francisco during the event. Our hotel partner has a full list of Bay Area lodging here: https://reservations.arestravel.com/hotel/list/12328/m71
