If you already have a reservation but are planning to cancel, please do not contact the hotel or cancel online; instead, please contact the convention committee at convention-info [at] origamiusa.org, as we will be able to transfer your reservation to another attendee.

Packing Suggestions

  • Bring a portable light (not all of the rooms are as bright as you might like for folding).
  • Bring a sweater (it gets cold in the hotel because of the air conditioning).


On Monday night we'll hold a celebration dinner at a nearby restaurant.

Other meals are not included, but there are many local restaurants to choose from.
