This place is massive. To cater for a conference of 17,000 is an effort and they seemed to do it with ease. The signage was clear and the room temperatures across the entire place was consistent. That one large common room is incredible.

This sprawling convention center is nicely situated in a popular area of the District. The rooms are spacious and it has multiple transportation options. It should serve the city well.

Marriot, and Courtyard come to mind. There are two transportation companies at the airport that can help you from the airport to the hotel. You can find them on the Reagan airport website.

The DC area airport closest to the convention center is Reagan/National. It is a quick cab ride from airport to convention center.
