Younique has secured discounts at some of the most convenient nearby hotels to help you make the most of your experience in San Antonio. The discounted hotel rooms are available until they are sold out and are available on a first-come, first-served basis. We recommend Younique Presenters book their hotel as early as possible for the best chances of securing a room at the discounted rate.
Booking in one of the official hotels gives you access to Orchid Event Solutions, the official housing provider for Younique Convention 2018, for updates, cancellations, and assistance with hotel reservations. You’ll also have more opportunities for networking with your Y-Sisters throughout the Convention.
How can I book a room for Convention in Younique’s housing block?
Younique has reserved blocks of discounted rooms at several hotels near the Henry B. González Convention Center in San Antonio. You can join us by booking a room through our Convention hotel room site: https://book.passkey.com/event/49319641/owner/1418/home. There is a link provided on the Convention website.
What is the hotel cancellation policy?
Cancellations made within 72 hours of your confirmed arrival date will be subject to a penalty fee, which will be charged by the hotel. Please check your confirmed hotel acknowledgement for applicable penalty fee amount. If you fail to arrive on your confirmed date, you will forfeit the penalty fee, and your reservation will be canceled for all of your stay. Some hotels charge a penalty for checking out earlier than scheduled. To avoid this, please verify your departure date upon checking in to the hotel.
Why do I have to enter my credit card information when booking?
A credit card is used to guarantee your reservation. This card will also be used to charge any cancellation fees. Please see the hotel cancellation policy above for details.
Is there a limit to the number of hotel rooms I can book?
The system is set up to reserve one room at a time.
How early do I need to book my hotel to get a discounted room?
The discounted rooms are available on a first-come, first-served basis. We recommend Younique Presenters book their hotel as early as possible to get the best chances of getting a room on the discounted block. Discounted rooms cannot be guaranteed after August 2, 2018, or until the blocks are sold out.
What if the hotel I have chosen on the housing link is showing as sold out?
Some of the hotels may sell out quickly. You should also check to see if it is showing as sold out because you are trying to add days to your stay. The majority of the hotel rooms are reserved for Younique August 8–11 only. If you are trying to add extra days before or after Convention, the system may say the rooms are sold out because the hotel is booked for those dates. If you only select Convention dates, and the main dates are not sold out, it should show as available.
Who do I contact for help with Convention hotel reservations?
If you are experiencing any difficulty making your reservation, please call 888-341-3540 or 801-214-7283, where Orchid Event Solutions customer service agents will be happy to help you.
Orchid Event Solutions is open Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. MT, excluding federal holidays.
