Hotel Information

Review the meeting schedule to determine the appropriate dates for your hotel stay.

A block of rooms has been reserved at the Washington Marriott Wardman Park at the rate of $263/night (single or double occupancy) for non-government attendees (GENERAL). A limited number of rooms at the per diem rate of $242/night (single or double occupancy) are reserved for government personnel (GOVERNMENT). You are encouraged to make your reservation early; however, please do not book rooms for nights you will not need.

Government rates are available for employees of the federal government, national laboratories, and state/local government agencies*. Unless you are an employee of one of these organizations, your reservation should be made in the GENERAL room block, a highly discounted rate offered to AMR guests.

*Government personnel must show valid identification at hotel check-in (government-issued Visa, MasterCard, or American Express; government picture ID; travel orders). Government contractors are not eligible for the U.S. Government per diem rate.

The group room rates, when available, are only valid for reservations made by Friday, May 12. After that date, the remaining rooms will no longer be reserved, and subsequent reservations will be offered on a rate- and space-available basis only. Note that rooms with the group room rate are limited and may sell out on some or all the days of the AMR before May 12.

Cancellations must be made 48 hours in advance to avoid penalty. As a courtesy to attendees who were unable to secure a reservation at the hotel, please contact Judi Abraham at 703-754-0066 or by email at prior to canceling your reservation.
