The accommodation booking system is now closed.  

The organisers are working to make your experience in Honolulu, Hawaiʻi as enjoyable and hassle-free as possible.  A number of hotel rooms in different price categories have been pre-booked in Honolulu at preferential rates (best rate guarantee) for the period of the IUCN World Conservation Congress (from 28 August to 12 September 2016).

For your convenience, a set of search criteria have been developed to help you find the best accommodation for your stay. You will be able to filter your search by:

  • Categories: from one to five diamonds as per the AAA diamond rating
  • Level of sustainability of the hotel as per the Hawai‘i Green Hotels Initiative
  • Location
  • Price range from 135US$ to 229US$ per night (Double for Single Use Rooms, VAT, SVC and breakfast excluded, internet access included)
  • Amenities

Additional information about hotel categories, the Hawaiʻi Green Hotels Initiative, location and rates can be found on the Official Housing Centre website.

Above indicated price ranges are for standard rooms and per night. Prices will vary for other available room types (superior room, deluxe room, junior suite, etc.).

Reservations will be taken on a first come, first served basis. Preferential rates, within the limit of availabilities, are guaranteed until the 11 August 2016. After 11 August 2016, standard rates may apply.
