June 20 Travelers:

Boston is experiencing a shortage of hotel rooms on June 20 due to multiple citywide events. This is causing some challenges for The BIG Ticket holders and InHOWse Managers Conference and Creative Freelancer Conference attendees who wish to check in the night before HOW Design Live starts.

Good news: Discounted rooms are now being set aside for HOW Design Live attendees at the Hilton Boston/Dedham on June 20th, with plenty of rooms available at official HOW Design Live hotels the Sheraton Boston Hotel and The Westin Copley Place Boston (both attached to the Hynes Convention Center and in the middle of the action) for the rest of your stay.  Because the Hilton Boston/Dedham is located approximately 10 to 15 minutes from the Convention Center, we have arranged shuttle service from the hotel to the Hynes on the morning of the 21st, along with luggage storage until you’re ready to check in at your new hotel.

If you’re ready to book your room(s) and would like to include the evening of June 20 in your stay, just call 1-877-414-7941 and our staff of housing experts will make sure you get the accommodations you need.
Or, click here to go straight to our online reservation system. Because of the unique hotel situation, you will need to book your accommodations in two steps. First, search for a guest room for June 20 only to book your room at the Hilton Boston/Dedham. Once that reservation is complete, search for the rest of the dates on your itinerary and rooms at the Sheraton Boston Hotel, The Westin Copley Place Boston, and other options will appear for you to choose from.
