Book Your Hotel for Comic-Con 2023!

Did you know that there are two different opportunities to secure your hotel for Comic-Con 2023? If you prefer the peace of mind and cost savings that comes from booking your hotel early, the Early Bird Hotel Sale is for you! But act fast. The Early Bird Hotels will no longer be available once the general hotel reservation sale begins.

If you’d prefer the excitement of lounging in a virtual waiting room for a chance to secure a hotel in the downtown area, you’ll want to participate in our general hotel reservation sale, which is coming soon!

Still not sure which sale is for you? Read below!

Comic-Con 2023’s General Hotel Reservation Sale

All participating hotels are available in our general hotel reservation sale. This sale will take place at a scheduled day and time that will be announced soon! All registered badge holders will receive an email from Comic-Con prior to the sale with information about how to participate. If you have a badge for Comic-Con 2023, please add to your safe senders list to ensure you receive our emails. "Whitelist" the email or the entire domain name ( to make sure our emails don’t go to your spam folder.

To participate in the sale, you’ll enter a virtual waiting room until the reservation request process begins, similar to the process that was followed during the badge sales last fall. Once the process begins, those participants in the waiting room will be given access to a hotel reservation request form in random order. Keep in mind…anyone entering the waiting room after the reservation request process has begun will be placed at the end of the line.

There will be a sample form with detailed instructions and the full list of hotels on our Hotels page once the date of the sale is announced.
