Microsoft Ignite 2019 Hotel Update (August 14)

Microsoft Ignite 2019 Hotel Map (August 14)Another month has gone by and it’s time for another update to my (unofficial) Microsoft Ignite 2019 Hotels page. Ignite is only 82 days away, and we may be getting close to Ignite selling out (according to an August 8th tweet from @shonadelie that has since been deleted). The hotel availability certainly reflects that we’re almost there as the pickings are pretty slim.

A quick reminder about the list and its caveats:

  • “Unavailable” means the hotel no longer shows up my search for a Sunday-Friday stay. If your dates differ, the hotel may show up in your search.
  • Hotels that have been marked “Unavailable” or “Sold Out” may become available again depending on cancellations and/or additions to the block.

Hotel Changes

One hotel moved from “unavailable” to “available”

  • Avanti Palms Resort and Conference Center

Ten hotels moved from “available” to “unavailable:

  • B Resort
  • Buena Vista Suites
  • Caribe Royale Orlando
  • Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott Orlando Lake Buena Vista in the Marriott Village
  • Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress
  • Sheraton Orlando Lake Buena Vista Resort
  • SpringHill Suites by Marriott Orlando Lake Buena Vista in Marriott Village
  • Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort
  • Wyndham Garden Lake Buena Vista Disney Springs Resort Area
  • Wyndham Lake Buena Vista Disney Springs Resort Area

Thirty-one hotels moved from “unavailable” to “sold out”:

  • Courtyard by Marriott Orlando Lake Buena Vista at Vista Centre
  • Courtyard by Marriott Orlando Lake Buena Vista in the Marriott Village
  • Crowne Plaza Orlando Universal Boulevard
  • Days Inn Orlando Convention Center International Drive
  • Delta Hotels by Marriott Orlando Lake Buena Vista
  • Doubletree by Hilton Hotel at the Entrance to Universal Orlando
  • Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Orlando at SeaWorld
  • Doubletree Suites by Hilton Orlando Disney Springs Area
  • Embassy Suites by Hilton Orlando International Drive Convention Center
  • Embassy Suites by Hilton Orlando International Drive I Drive 360
  • Embassy Suites by Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista Resort
  • Embassy Suites by Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista South
  • Fairfield Inn and Suites by Marriott Orlando near Universal Orlando Resort
  • Hawthorn Suites by Wyndham Orlando Lake Buena Vista
  • Hilton Garden Inn Lake Buena Vista/Orlando
  • Hilton Grand Vacations at SeaWorld
  • Hilton Orlando Buena Vista Palace Disney Springs Area
  • Hilton Orlando Lake Buena Vista Disney Springs Area
  • Holiday Inn Orlando Disney Springs Area
  • Hyatt House across from Universal Orlando Resort
  • Hyatt Place across from Universal Orlando Resort
  • Hyatt Place Orlando/Lake Buena Vista
  • Loews Portofino Bay Hotel at Universal Orlando
  • Loews Royal Pacific Resort at Universal Orlando
  • Loews Sapphire Falls Resort
  • Renaissance Orlando at SeaWorld
  • Residence Inn by Marriott Orlando Lake Buena Vista
  • Rosen Inn at Pointe Orlando
  • Rosen Shingle Creek
  • SpringHill Suites by Marriott Orlando at SeaWorld
  • TownePlace Suites by Marriott Orlando at SeaWorld

That leaves only two hotels left that are coming up as available in a search in the official conference block. The two remaining hotels are:

  • Avanti Palms Resort and Conference Center
  • Rosen Plaza Hotel

Remember, these are the results for a Sunday-Friday stay. If I adjust the search for Saturday-Friday, I get one hotel, the Rosen Plaza. A Saturday-Saturday stay brings up no hotels.

I will say that in the space of fifteen minutes, these searches gave slightly different results, so things are fluid. Your takeaway from all of this should be to go and register for Ignite if you haven’t already. Time is running out if you want to join us in Orlando in November.
