The PSB hotel block sells out, so we encourage you to make your reservations as soon as possible.

Shortened Reservation Policy: Individual reservations where the original reservation dates have been shortened up to 30 days prior to arrival will be accepted, and the deposit refunded for those rooms for up to two (2) full night’s stay. For reservations shortened within 30 days prior to arrival, individuals will be responsible for 100% of room revenue, per the original reservation, to be billed to the individual credit card on file.
The Fairmont Orchid offers a complimentary loyalty program, please see Accor Live Limitless (ALL) for more information.
If you are interested in finding a roommate, please email psb.hawaii @ gmail.com with your lodging dates, gender, and other roommate preferences. The PSB coordinator will then put you in touch with other participants who are looking for roommates. Please note that if you plan to share a room at the Fairmont, the reservation must include both guests' names for check-in.
Self-parking for one vehicle per room is covered by the resort fee. If attendees choose to use Valet Parking versus the Self-parking included in the resort fee, the charge will be the difference between the Self-parking rate and the Valet Parking rate, applicable for one car daily.
For non-hotel guests, parking is complimentary with validation. Tickets may be validated at the bell desk.
We have been able to offer partial travel support to many PSB attendees in the past, including most authors of accepted full papers who request support and many graduate students. However, please note that no one is guaranteed travel support.
