Heading to SOF Week and Worried About Finding Lodging?

We understand the challenge and want to keep you in the loop! We know that one of the biggest concerns for our out-of-towners leading up to SOF Week is getting a hotel room. Believe us--we wish there were more rooms, too!

We've worked hard to increase the inventory across 30 hotels for both Per Diem and Regular rate rooms as close to the venue as possible.

Much of the SOF Week Room Block inventory has already been distributed to our USSOCOM Enterprise Military and Government Attendees, International Military Representatives, Speakers, Exhibitors, Sponsors, and Corporate Partners. Our remaining hotel room blocks will open in EARLY MARCH to coincide with the launch of SOF Week Registration.

Here's your best chance to get one of the remaining rooms in our room blocks:

  • Stay Informed: Keep a close eye on your emails for updates and announcements regarding available rooms.

  • Act Quickly: Once the email announcement declares the rooms are live, head straight to our dedicated lodging webpage HERE.

  • Book Promptly: Don't wait! Secure your accommodations before they're snapped up. These rooms are in high demand and will disappear fast!

Missed out on a room in our block? No need to despair! There are alternative lodging options in the vicinity to ensure your stay during SOF Week is comfortable and convenient. Explore further hotels, B&Bs, or other accommodations to make the most of your experience.

Don't let lodging stress overshadow your excitement for SOF Week. Stay informed, act swiftly, and rest easy, knowing that various options are available to accommodate your stay.

We can't wait to host you at this exciting event!
