This is one of the largest convention center around Washington DC. Location wise, it is located in the central part and has excellent connectivity through Metro.

Good location, lots of restaurants nearby and small parks within walking distance. Good facility with lots of restroom facilities and that are reasonably clean (the cleaning crew could visit more frequently though). Good seating, sign posts/indicators).

Don't often go to the convention center but this year's book fair/show was wonderful. The convention center is easy to get to by metro and east to navigate once inside. Think we'll look for more reasons to go

Marriot, and Courtyard come to mind. There are two transportation companies at the airport that can help you from the airport to the hotel. You can find them on the Reagan airport website.

The DC area airport closest to the convention center is Reagan/National. It is a quick cab ride from airport to convention center.
