IMPORTANT HOTEL INFORMATION:  The Hilton Alexandria Mark Center may be completely booked on the days you select on-line.  Call and ask the hotel reservation desk to place you in the UMDF room block.  If they cannot, we have secured a small room block at the Courtyard Alexandria Pentagon South and they have offered a free shuttle service to and from the Hilton.  The group rate in this block is $149 through May 28th but you may be able to get it less with other discounts (senior rates, auto clubs, etc).  If you are not interested in staying at the Courtyard or if they become booked, you can check out other properties close to Hilton Alexandra Mark Center here.

If you select a refundable room at another hotel, you may be able to switch to the Hilton if anyone cancels out of our room block – just check back with the hotel a week before the meeting.
