Lodging

SAME has negotiated room blocks with a number of hotels within walking distance of the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. SAME has a guaranteed lowest rate clause with each hotel!  Reservations will open in January.

For planning purposes, hotels and room rates are below. The negotiated room block is specifically for conference attendees; one must register to attend the conference within five working days of making hotel reservations (government employees excepted).  All hotels will offer a limited number of rooms at the prevailing government per diem (currently $252). SAME is only able to block a limited number of rooms at per diem, and we must ensure these rooms are occupied by those attending JETC to represent the government.  Contractors and retirees are not eligible for these rooms. Therefore, we do regular audits of the room block and will change the room rate for those who are ineligible for the per diem rate to the industry rate. We thank you for your understanding.

The cut-off date for room reservations is April 25, 2020, or until the room block is sold out, whichever comes first.
