Book Your Hotel

EdCon 24 attendees can receive a reduced rate when staying at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel at the Entrance to Universal Orlando located at 5780 Major Blvd.

The group rate is $159 per night and available 3 days pre/post event dates. The reservation cutoff date is May 14, 2024. Parking at the hotel is $20 under the group rate. 

If a guest who has requested a room within the group’s room block checks out prior to the guest’s reserved checkout date, the hotel will add an early checkout fee to that guest’s individual account, which is equal to one night’s room fee. Guests wishing to avoid an early checkout fee should advise the hotel at or before check-in of any change during the planned length of stay.
