REMINDER: A one-night deposit will be charged at the beginning of the month following your reservation. Further Confusion is proud to return to San Jose this year! Located in the heart of downtown San Jose, we have two great anchor hotels for you to choose from this year, with more overflows to be announced soon. Our main hotels are attached to the convention center, are walking distance from Downtown San Jose’s best restaurants and parks, and offer fantastic amenities. Our overflow hotels will also be within walking distance, but are not adjacent to our event space.

Know before you book!
Booking A Suite: To book a suite, make a regular reservation, then email email@example.com with your passkey and reservation name to upgrade the room. Suites are in limited quantity and bookings will be addressed on a first come first serve basis.
Party Floor Reminder: All rooms on the party floor, whether hosting a party or not, are subject to a refundable $250 deposit upon check-in. We understand that this places a frustrating burden on our party hosts, but this was the compromise we had to make to ensure we have a dedicated area for parties. Rooms will be inspected by housekeeping upon departure and the deposit refunded accordingly. Applications will open shortly following hotel open, in July, and all rules can be found on our Party Floor page.
Pet Policy: There are no pets allowed in the convention space at Further Confusion. While the Marriott does allow pets in sleeping rooms with an additional fee, they do NOT allow animals to be left unattended in rooms, and no animals are permitted in the convention spaces. FurCon is an extremely busy, crowded, stressful event, and not an optimal situation for an animal to be in. This policy does not affect ADA service animals as defined by Title II and Title III of the ADA Service Animal regulations. Regrettably, animals defined as Emotional Support Animals do not fall under this definition. Additionally, pets are not allowed inside any Convention Center space, except for ADA Service Animals as described above. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any additional clarification on this policy.
How To Reserve & Reservation Policies
1Visit this page
Congratulations! You are here.
2Book your room!
The online booking link is at the top of this page.
You’ll receive an email receipt from our vendor confirming your reservation. You will be charged a non-refundable deposit within 1 month of booking.
Reservations should be made from this page once the hotel block is opened. Reservations are first-come, first-served, and tend to sell out quickly. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer a waitlist for rooms. Availability does change as rooms are booked and cancelled, so check back often if you are still on the lookout for a room. Overflows may become available at a later date, and will be announced here.
All reservations are charged a one-night, non-refundable deposit. If your credit card is declined, the hotel will make an attempt to contact you for updated billing information before canceling your reservation.
We do not accept reservations over the phone. Please use the online reservation system on this page to ensure your reservation is processed correctly.
Using a debit card to check into your room is not recommended. The hotel will place a hold on your card as part of the check-in process to cover any incidental charges. If you choose to use a debit card, you must have sufficient balance to cover this hold, and it may take several weeks for this hold to be released.
If you have questions about your reservation, please use the online reservation system to access your record first, or contact email@example.com. Do not contact the hotels directly about your reservation until 30 days before your reservation (mid-December). Group reservations are processed through an outside agency (PassKey), and it takes time to transfer the reservations into the hotels’ computer systems. Rest assured, if you have an email from PassKey or Team San Jose, your reservation will be honored. If you still have questions, feel free to contact our hotel director at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Party floor applications are handled through a separate process. For more information, please see the Party Floor page. Regrettably, we are unable to transfer reservations between hotels. If you wish to be on the party floor, it is a good idea to book a room at the Marriott when the main block opens. We can have your existing reservation assigned to the party floor upon approval.
Special Requests: If you need an accessible (ADA-compliant) room, please indicate it on the “special requests” section of your reservation. We will make every attempt to fulfill these requests first. If you need a refrigerator or roll-away bed, you may also request that on the “special requests” section of your reservation. These requests are not guaranteed, and may incur an additional charge._A note on refrigerators: These are often a popular request at conventions. If you need a refrigerator for medical reasons (e.g. storing medication), please let us know; we will attempt to fulfill these requests first. _Other requests, such as specific room numbers or floors, are handled on a best-effort basis.
Looking to transfer your reservation? While there is no rule against transferring a reservation, there is also no mechanism for formally transferring a reservation. If you must transfer your reservation, you are responsible for arranging any transfer of finances. You may add the new “owner” as an additional guest to your reservation through the online reservation system. Any guest listed on your reservation may check-in. Be aware that you may still be liable for charges if the new “owner” fails to change the credit-card on file during check-in. Due to the risks involved to both parties, we don’t recommend transferring reservations. If you must, we strongly recommend only transferring a reservation to or from someone you trust.
Parking: Check out the Travel page for more parking information. Valet and self-service parking are available at each of the hotels for a nominal fee, and additional parking options are available throughout downtown San Jose. Be advised that you may not sleep in your car/truck/camper at the hotel/convention center.
Questions? The Further Confusion hotel director can be reached at email@example.com with any additional questions you may have.
