Conference

Hotel and Travel Information

SLAS2017 will be held at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center located at 801 Mt Vernon Pl NW, Washington, DC 20001.

Individual Hotel Reservations

SLAS has partnerships in place with the following hotels and service providers in order to provide conference participants the best rates and convenience. SLAS has negotiated discounted rates at these hotels. While the hotel rates include a rebate to SLAS to help offset the costs of the Convention Center rental, in order to keep registration costs down, the negotiated rates are below standard guest rates quoted at the hotels if you are using the SLAS group discount site or code.

All hotels are adjacent to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. The Marriott Marquis Washington, DC hotel is the official SLAS2017 headquarters hotel. It’s the closest hotel to the SLAS meeting space within the convention center and it’s connected to it via an indoor underground walkway.

The deadline to reserve hotel rooms at the SLAS2017 group negotiated rate was January 5th. All but the Marquis are sold out. Please see below for additional hotel options.

The Benefit of Staying in the Official SLAS Housing Block

SLAS2017 has negotiated special rates and benefits for conference attendees at two of Washington, DC's premier convention center hotels.

Not only are these hotels conveniently located adjacent to the convention center, but SLAS2017 attendees benefit in several other ways:

  • Significant discounts off standard guest room rates
  • Complimentary guest room Internet service (value of up to $15 per night)
  • Complimentary guest access to hotel fitness center
  • Flexible booking policies
  • Simplified ability to make reservation changes, if required

By staying in the SLAS block of guest rooms, SLAS is able to contract premier facilities such as the Walter E Washington Convention Center. Additionally, you are helping the Society meet its contractual obligations to the hotels, avoid penalties and help to underwrite the cost of convention center rental, therefore keeping conference registration fees as affordable as possible. Your support of booking your room within the SLAS2017 guest room block is greatly appreciated.
