Looking for the perfect place to stay in Orlando? We have partnered with a select group of preferred hotels/motels to provide our vendors and visitors great accommodations at special rates.

If booking by phone be sure to mention 'Orlando HamCation' to get the special rate. Some hotels have provided a booking link to make reservations online. If there is no link, call the hotel directly.

ATTENTION: If you are contacted by Conventioneers by email or Expo Housing Services or Global Services or Global Travel Partners (or a company similar in name), DO NOT book your hotel room through them. This is a scam. They are calling from (702) 342- then the last 4 numbers are different. Two of the numbers are 702-342-0963 & 702-342-0980. Orlando HamCation has not authorized any travel companies to call on behalf of Orlando HamCation or any hotel partners. These companies are charging many fees on top of a so called lower rate.

We'll announce accommodation information as we get closer to Hamcation 2020
