No later than September 30th, but the sooner the better. The housing reservation site is tentatively scheduled to go offline on October 1, 2022. Hotels cannot take direct reservations from Energy Exchange attendees until after that date. At that point, reservations will be taken based on availability. If you contact the individual hotels before then to book your room, they will direct you back to the housing manager.

The maximum number of rooms one person can reserve (within one reservation record) is 10 rooms. If your group needs 11 or more rooms, you might want to consider setting up a private sub-block.

Note: Cancellation fees may apply to the overbooking of rooms that go unused.

After booking your hotel reservation, you will receive a Reservation Acknowledgment Number from Resiada, which is different from the hotel confirmation number. Your hotel confirmation number will be emailed to you directly by the hotel in early October. If you do not receive a Reservation Acknowledgement Number soon after you reserve your room(s), please contact the housing manager at


Reservation requests made on the housing site are not transferred to the hotels until late September, so if you call the hotel to confirm a reservation before that time, they will not yet have it uploaded into their system yet. Wait until early October to follow-up if you haven’t received a confirmation # directly from the hotel by that point.

Yes, the published room rates are set at the federal per diem allowance.

September 20 or earlier: make these changes through the Energy Exchange Hotel Site.

September 21-October 5: Please contact the housing manager at

After you have received your hotel confirmation number, you may contact the hotel directly where you have a reservation.

New reservation requests should be made directly with the hotel, using the list of “still available” hotels. Rooms are subject to higher rate than negotiated. Please identify yourself as an Energy Exchange attendee when requesting a room directly with the hotels.
