Hotel Information
In-progress, updated soon.

Location of Festival
The movies will be shown at the Roxie, is in the Mission neighborhood in 16th Street between Valencia and Guerrero. The Center for Sex & Culture is in SOMA. They are both fairly close to downtown, or to the Castro, or the Tenderloin or Polk Street neighborhoods. This year I am referring guests to the the Castro Castle but contact the festival first for special arrangements. The Monarch Hotel is also relatively inexpensive, and well located, in the Polk Street neighborhood, lots of clubs and food, a 5-10 minute bus ride from our office, and another 5 mnutes to the Roxie. The SW Fest office is not too far from the Mission, in the SOMA district.
