How do I reserve a hotel room?

October 4, 2018 Updated Information for National Blue Ribbon Schools Hotel Reservations

We apologize for the difficulties you have had with room reservations at the Omni Shoreham Hotel and the Marriott Wardman Park.

We had secured a number of rooms at the discounted rate of $169 plus applicable taxes beginning on November 5 with a limited number of rooms for check out on November 9th.   Unfortunately, due to the renovations going on at the Omni, they are only able to offer rooms at the discounted rate for a November 6th check in through a November 9th check out.  They also worked with the Marriott Wardman Park located across the street from the Omni to host some of our guests.  The Marriott was only able to offer a limited number of sleeping rooms for check in on November 5th with a check out on November 8th.

We run into difficulties when a number of guests were attempting to reserve rooms for early arrival dates (November 4th) and late departure dates (November 9th and November 10th).  We are almost sold out of our room blocks at both hotels. We have made arrangements at another hotel to accommodate guests who want a November 6 check in through a November 9th check out.  If you need to cancel your holds at either the Omni or the Marriott for your preferred dates, please do so as soon as possible. The Churchill Hotel is a 3 minute cab drive, one Metro Stop or 18 minute walk to the Omni Shoreham Hotel.  Due to city wide Veterans Day events over that weekend, the hotels will not be able to extend stays past November 9th.
