Our next ABTA Convention will take place at the Washington NABC: Tuesday 19 July - Fri 22 July, 2016.

LOCATION of ABTA Convention: Marriott Wardman Park Hotel, 2660 Woodley Rd. NW

We really want all of you to be there and for that reason we are now holding a block of rooms at a nearby hotel at a less expensive rate.

Rate at Marriott Wardman Park Hotel (host hotel) : $169.00 per night USD

There is a Days Inn Hotel two Metro stops away from Marriott Wardman on the red line. I am told that the Washington Metro is safe and excellent. Days Inn is at 4400 Connecticut Ave NW, Washington.

We have a block of rooms there at $119.95 USD per room. This is a $50.00 per night saving. If you plan on attending the ABTA convention as well as staying on for the NABC, then this is a substantial savings.

Days Inn will NOT be the Ritz. If you want fancy, it would be best to stay at Marriott Wardman. If you would like economy, bearing in mind that you are not in your room much, the Days Inn willbe adequate. Bedding at the hotel has been refurbished. The rooms are simple.

Parking at Days Inn is not included. Cost: $23.60 per day. 

There is an additional mandatory fee of $1.59 per night for use of the in-room safe.

If you are interested in staying at Days Inn, we urge you to book early. If the block of 20 rooms becomes sold out, the rate then moves up to $139.95 per room per night.

Linda Green is busy arranging another excellent  line-up of speakers for us. Chicago was superb. Please come. In fact, come early and have a tour of Washington and go to see some of the Smithsonian! 

We do hope you will attend and look forward to seeing you there!

Yours sincerely,
