With almost a month to go for the big event, the tourism leaders of SF are extremely happy with their almost-fully-booked hotels. Although proximity maybe the key to a very comfortable Dreamforce experience, the chances of getting hotels closer to the campus are very slim. So to add on to your luck, we have made a short list of the possible ways you can find accommodation in San Francisco for Dreamforce 2015.
1. Official Dreamforce hotels
Dreamforce contracts rooms with hotels and accommodations throughout San Francisco at a discounted rate for the attendees. These hotels can be booked during the registration process and are available on first come, first served and real-time availability basis.
Salesforce has created an official Dreamforce 2015 Hotels and Travel Reservation Map and a Dreamforce Hotel List to help you out with your accommodation search.
2. Book with Airbnb or VRBO
Airbnb and VRBO has listed a wide range of local accommodations in San Francisco. These could be shared rooms, apartments, or even villas which might be comfortable and suitable to your needs.
3. Get on board the Dreamboat
This year, Salesforce has partnered with Celebrity Cruises to charter a luxury cruise ship on the San Francisco Bay, docked at Pier 27. The cruise ship, Dreamboat is already a big talk of the conference and it offers rooms that start from $250 per night to up to $850 per night for a premium suite.
4. Book a package deal via popular travel websites.
Travel websites maybe the best bet to find affordable place and book with ease. With a lot of websites like Expedia, Kayak, Travelocity, etc., offering package deals with discounts, this could be a viable option if you are travelling a long distance to San Francisco.
5. San Francisco Travel Housing
The SF Travel Association offers housing services for conventions. For Dreamforce, they have partnered with Booking.com to help the attendees. They specialize in booking and tracking hotel rooms after cutoff dates.
6. Keep in touch with other attendees via Dreamforce Community
Dreamforce Community has a lot of hot and happening groups with Dreamforce veterans and like minded attendees, who can give you great ideas. This also is a place where you may find roomies for the 4-day conference. So make sure that you join these groups and keep track of all the things happening in there.
Did you set up your Dreamforce Agenda Builder? With over 1,500 sessions, keynotes from luminaries, and thousands of live solutions, the conference is definitely going to be grand. So sooner you plan out your trip, better will be your experience.
