SXSW Housing Problem Solved for 2013 & 2014

by Larry Chiang on February 7, 2013

By Larry Chiang

I ‘hacked’ housing by booking both the Four Seasons Hotel and the Driskill in parallel.

In this 2009 video, I started to deeply study the sxsw hotel situation

By booking both the Four Seasons Hotel and the Driskill in parallel I did what my chapter 12 (street smarts) advocates, which is to book a back-up plan.

When the hotel W grand opened, I stayed there while that hotel was in ‘Grand Open’ mode.

For 2013, I’m staying at ‘the Four’ because I booked it an eon ago via my company’s clients travel desk. Also, I heard that the Four Seasons is under contract and that this is the last contract year.

For 2013 SXSW…

I’ve ENGR145 kids who started a biz listing inventory on campus (like dorms and apt). They go to UT. Theyre undergrads and they gouge (yay for them) Email or text me and I’ll connect u to them

For 2014…) Me book 2014 now. Consider doing so also?? Starwood pref 888-625-4990 Buying an Amex credit card helps but people don’t know that you can actually use visa to pay– so cray cray!!
