According to our poll last week, most respondents are interested in sharing a room at the Grand Hyatt or in a hostel nearby. The best deal for hostel rooms seems to be at the DC Lofty hostel, just six blocks north from the conference hotel. Have a look at the room pricing options on their website – prices range from a four-bed female dorm for $42.68 per person per night to an eight-bed mixed dorm for $32.76 per person per night.
If you would like to get in on this chance to save some money at the conference this year, email co-moderator Ellen Tisdale (ellen.j.tisdale[at]gmail[dot]com). Include the nights you will be in Washington and your lodging preferences (all female, all male or mixed rooms). If you are looking for a roommate to share a room at the grand Hyatt, email Ellen with the same information and she will get you connected. Remember that reduced conference rates at the Grand Hyatt are only available until March 28!
