Hotel Information 2022

Anime Weekend Atlanta is a 24 hour convention, starting Thursday and continuing through Sunday evening. To get the maximum fun out of the convention, avoid having to lug around 10lbs of swag you bought in the dealer’s room, and accommodate your 3 cosplay changes a day, you’re probably going to want to stay close by. To help you out with that, AWA has made agreements with local hotels to offer you the lowest rates available for the weekend AND include special concessions like free in-room wifi.

How to book the host hotel (Updated for 2022)

The Renaissance Waverly is the AWA host hotel – registration for the convention is available on the second floor, and various events will be held there in addition to the Cobb Galleria. The party doesn’t stop at the Renaissance, so if you’re looking for quiet in the evenings, you may enjoy another of our hotels more. Rooms at the Renaissance are EXTREMELY limited, and tend to sell out within minutes. Because AWA sells out the full hotel, you will not be able to book a room for October 27 – October 31 outside of the following system and times.

In order to accomodate the most people in the least frustrating way, there are three available booking blocks for the Renaissance. Reservations will be handled by the Renaissance directly.

Please note that the site will say

“Sorry, there are no rooms remaining in the group block for a particular night. Please contact the Hotel directly for assistance” until booking opens, and will display the same message once it sells out. Keep trying the link – we will post when the hotel tells us they have sold out.

Monday, May 16th, 2022 at 10:00am – SOLD OUT

  • Oct 27 (Thurs check-in) – Oct 31 (Mon departure) reservations only.
  • Full payment due upon reservation. Cards will be charged Monday – Tuesday. If your card is declined, you’ll have until the end of the business day to respond and provide a new CC before your room is released.

Thursday, May 19, 2022 at 10:00am

  • Oct 27 (Thurs) – Oct 30 (Sun) OR Oct 28 (Fri) – Oct 31 (Mon) stays only.

Monday, May 23, 2022 at 10:00am

  • 2 night minimum, but 3 night or 4 night stays available while rooms last.

**Deposits will be taken 60 days prior, the week of August 29. Due to the full hotel being booked, deposits will be withdrawn throughout the full week. For example your deposit may be taken on August 29 or September 2, 2022.

FAQs for the Renaissance Booking Process

Can all of the Rooms at the RW sell out on May 16?

No. Each date has an allotted number of rooms that can be booked. If all of the rooms portioned out for the May 16th block sell out, you will need to wait until the May 19th block for the next opportunity to book.

What happens if the May 16th block does not sell out?

In the extremely unlikely event that the May 16th block does not sell out, its rooms will be added to the May 19th block, and take on those requirements for booking.

 How long will rooms be held while I check out?

15 minutes. If you are not able to get in right at (time TBA), we recommend refreshing every few minutes in case someone closes out of their window or decides not to book. This does mean that some people may be able to book after 10am even though some people have been declined from the system. This is a feature of holding rooms while people check out.

I saw someone get a reservation at 9:58am. What gives??

While the portal may be set to open at 10am, it may open a little early or late due to the nature of the system, bandwidth, and actual human beings. This system is managed by Marriott and AWA is not physically in charge of the big red OPEN NOW button. We recommend trying to book starting 15 minutes early.

What if I have more questions?

For additional questions not answered here, please email us at and we will do our best to get you answers. On the day of booking, if you have questions, it is best to call the Renaissance directly at 770-953-4500.

How to book all other hotels

Hotel blocks open Monday, May 23, 2022 at 9:00am.

We have 13 hotels in addition to the Renaissance Waverly that offer AWA group rates. In order to make your booking process a breeze, we have a single portal where you can book a room that best meets your requirements. This portal will be open 9:00am.

If you already know where you want to stay, there is a “view all hotels” link where you can directly select your prefered property.

If you’re more flexible on where you stay, you can enter your check-in and check-out dates, and then sort the matching properties by name, distance, price, and even available amenities.

Please note, you will only be able to book one room at a time via the booking portal. Additionally, attendees are allowed up to two (2) reservations maximum held under one name. Any reservations with more than two (2) rooms held under their name 14 days after initial reservation was made; could result in cancellation of their second reservation stay.

While the portal is set to open at 9am, it may open a little early or late due to the nature of the system, bandwidth, and actual human beings. This system is managed by an outside company and AWA is not physically in charge of the big red OPEN NOW button.
