Book a room online or call:


These hotels are a 3 minute walk from each other connected by The Link (a heated enclosed above ground walkover that connects Union Station (Train Station), The Westin, The Sheraton, and the Crown Center.  

There is also door to door transportation available for those who need help between hotels.

The Sheraton is the homebase for our Winter Music Camp, Exhibit Hall, Art Gallery, Public Trade Show, Film Festival and much more.

The Westin is the homebase for the conference, Official and private (music floor) showcases, panels, workshops, and much more.  

*** For Westin Music Floor Rooms (private showcase rooms) you must start with a Private Showcase Agreement.  Once that is completed, you will receive information on reserving your music floor room.

* The hotels will show SOLD OUT as we fill our block.  

We will do our best to open as many sleeping rooms as possible at both hotels, but we suggest that you secure your rooms as early as possible.  Both hotels are under the same management team.

Both hotels were remodeled and received upgrades in 2013.  You will not be disappointed.  

*** We will have an overnight instrument check at The Westin for Sheraton guests that would rather leave their instrument at the Westin.
