- The Hilton Arlington & Towers
The Hilton is the closest full-service hotel. It is on North Fairfax Drive (the same street as GMU Arlington) approximately 5 city blocks from the George Mason Arlington campus (roughly 1/2 mile). The Hotel is located directly above the entrance to the Ballston Metro station, so it is also possible to take the Metro one stop to the Virginia Square station, located 1 block from George Mason.
A block of guestrooms for the conference has been reserved until January 27, 2007 at special rate of
$149.00 plus tax per night. Reservations may be booked online using group code GMU. You may also contact the reservations department by phone at 703-528-6000 (Local) or 1-800-HILTONS (Toll-Free). Please note that there is a limited number of rooms available, and the special rate is only available through Saturday, January 27, so reserve early!
- FDIC Residence Center
Located right next door to George Mason, the FDIC is the lodging closest to the meeting rooms. While quite comfortable, it is not a typical full-service hotel. For example, the cafeteria is open only M-F and serves only breakfast and lunch. All rooms are efficiencies and are equipped with a mini-kitchenette. More information is available online.
