PAX partners with local hotels to provide reduced rates and a reserved block of rooms through a third party travel system, OnPeak. To get a reduced rate, one must book through the official PAX OnPeak link for the associated show.
Many PAX attendees choose to share their room to reduce costs of their PAX trip. Room sharing is organized via the official PAX forums. This also often acts as a method of meeting new people or getting extra hangout time with people one might already have met.
