Hotel Pennsylvania

To reserve a room at the Hotel Pennsylvania, call hotel reservations at 212-736-5000. Our special discounted rate has SOLD OUT but the hotel still has rooms available at prices that are lower than anywhere else in the vicinity. However, that too may not last much longer.

The Hotel Pennsylvania is located at 401 Seventh Avenue (15 Penn Plaza) in New York City, right across the street from Penn Station and a couple of blocks away from the Empire State Building. The hotel has stood since 1919 with a record 2200 rooms and has booked over 27 million guests since then, more than any hotel on the planet. It's the home of the most famous telephone number in the world: Pennsylvania 6-5000.

The hotel had been targeted for demolition in recent years by its owners (Vornado Realty Trust), which led to a massive campaign from HOPE attendees to save it. Incredibly, Vornado appears to have had a change of heart and major renovations are now underway instead.

The Hackers On Planet Earth conferences are among the biggest events to take place at the hotel. (Every conference except 1997's Beyond HOPE has taken place there.) Every two years, our crew transforms the place into a high tech center and hackers from all over the world roam the many hallways and floors. For those from out of town, it's a great way to experience New York for the first time.
