Whether you are showcasing your club or upcoming event, or would just like a space to chill and hang out with others in a less formal party setting, all types of parties are welcome. Please fill out the Party Room Request below or drop us a note if you are planning a party.

Like to be closer to the action? If you would like your sleeping room on the Party Floor, also please let us know. This can happen. Thank you, party hosts!

Party hosts may wish to use this typical room layout drawing to plan their party layouts. (This is the same layout map we have been sending people to for the past several years.) Remember: your actual room may be a mirror image of this drawing, and may in fact differ in small or large ways: it's a drawing of a room, not your room.

Inflation is everywhere! Everything costs more than it did a year ago, right?


Rates for party rooms are the same as in 2022 and the same as regular sleeping rooms in the MarsCon block ($99.00 + tax per night for a standard room). You may book a room at the MarsCon rate here, then email us at with your reservation number. Our party planning personnel will work with the Hilton to move your reservation to the party floor.

If you are planning to host a party, please fill in the Party Request Form below. It will help us collect all the information we need in one place.
