Travel & Hotels

Reserve a Hotel

The OTC hotel reservations system is closed.

  • If you require a new reservation, OTC also partners with Advanced Reservation Systems (ARES). The hotel rooms offered through ARES are not part of the OTC official contracted hotel block, and transportation to Reliant Park is not provided. Deposits and cancellation policies vary.

  • Or, you may contact the official OTC hotels directly to determine if rooms are still available (see official OTC hotels list with phone numbers).
