Hotels near the GWS 25th Annual Convention site: Washington Park-Hyatt Hotel

 

            The Convention location is the Washington Park-Hyatt Hotel, located at 24th and M Streets, NW. The hotel is sold out of sleeping rooms for the dates of the Convention. 

 

 The area around the Park-Hyatt is known as the Foggy Bottom, George Washington University, and even DuPont Circle sectors.  Hotels within walking distance have addresses on numbered streets (running north-south) 19th through 27th, or lettered streets (running east-west) H through P, or New Hampshire Avenue (avenues run diagonally) from 800-1300. Other neighborhoods a bit further (up to one mile = 1.5 km) are Georgetown and Kennedy Center. These areas are in the Northwest quadrant, so all street addresses show “NW” at the end.
