Housing Details

We are excited to continue our partnership with ONPEAK Housing services. ONPEAK is a full-service housing company and will support WE20 bookings.

  • Professional Attendees
  • Speakers
  • Collegiate Attendees
  • Faculty Advisors

  • Exhibitors
  • Government Rated rooms (government ID available – limited rooms)

Group blocks are available. A group is considered more than nine (9) reservations. Individual reservations are also available at each category.


Book your hotel room as soon as you can HERE. Do not book hotels directly, as you will receive higher rates.  You will be asked to indicate the type of room and number of guests in the room.

Housing Policies

Be sure to read the housing policies before booking.  This will prevent you from making costly mistakes while booking hotels.


Please visit the housing section for a hotel directional map. Each hotel will be indicated with location, distance from the convention center, and rate per room night. Most hotels are within 1 block-10 blocks.

Room Guarantees

You will need to GUARANTEE your room with a credit card. This card will not be charged until 60 days before the start of conference.  To cancel a room, you must visit the ONPEAK HOUSING site. Be sure to receive a valid cancellation notification when cancelling a room, or you may end up with hotel no-show charges.

Booking a Government Rate Reservation

WE20 has availability for hotel room reservations at prevailing government rate. Due to the verification needed, the process is as follows:

  1. Select the hotel you desire and make a reservation at the standard rate with your desired arrival and departure dates.
  2. Contact Jeanne.Elipani@swe.org requesting a government rate.
  3. Your request will be transferred to onPeak, our vendor and they will check government rate availability for your hotel.  If the particular hotel does not have a government rate available, they will suggest alternate hotels.  Once this is complete, our onPeak rep will change the rate to “government” and send you a revised reservation within 24-48 hours.

Rates subject to change when applicable per diem rate is announced.  government or Military ID will be required at check in.  If not presented, government rate will not be honored.  Questions: contact Jeanne.Elipani@swe.org


If a room needs to be cancelled, you must visit the ONPEAK HOUSING site at to cancel your hotel.

The Society of Women Engineers has been and will continue to monitor the ever-changing, daily developments regarding the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic and any potential impact it may have on the WE20 Annual Conference. Our first priority is the safety and well-being of our members, partners, and staff. Currently SWE is planning for an in-person conference in November, but is working diligently to determine all possible options and best practices surrounding WE20. This could include hosting a virtual conference or a hybrid in-person/virtual conference. We will be finalizing our strategy and the path forward for WE20 in June. We will share additional information as soon as it becomes available.
