Conference Hotel Information
We have negotiated a conference rate for a block of rooms at two boutique hotels within walking distance to both the GW Law School and major public transportation options. To take advantage of the conference rates, you must make your reservation on or before January 20, 2011. Rooms are limited; once the block is full for each hotel the conference rate may no longer apply.
The hotels are One Washington Circle Hotel (www.thecirclehotel.com) and The George Washington University Inn (www.gwuinn.com).
The rates are the same at both hotels. Specifically, reservations may be made at the group rate for any number of nights between Wednesday, February 23rd and Saturday, February 26th (with a checkout on Sunday the 27th).
Weekday rates for Wednesday and Thursday nights are $199/night.
Weekend rates for Friday and Saturday night are $119/night.
Prices do not include a 14.5% sales tax. Additional guests will be charged $20/night.
