Important Update About Booking Your Room

If you haven't yet booked your hotel room, please read this important update:


Due to increased attendance this year, we've sold out of our $99/night room block! We have negotiated another room block at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center at the rate of $119/night plus tax, which is still a significant discount from their normal rates. Please note that this rate is only for Thursday, July 30 through Sunday, August 2.

To make a reservation, book online or call 800-HILTONS (800-445-8667). Specify Hilton Mark Center in Alexandria, VA. Mention Animal Rights Conference to receive our discounted rate.

If the increased cost is an issue, we've also negotiated with the nearby Courtyard Alexandria Pentagon South at the rate of $99/night plus tax. The Courtyard is located at 4641 Kenmore Avenue in Alexandria, VA. It is about a 10 minute walk to the Hilton Mark Center and both hotels offer free shuttles all day back and forth. The Courtyard will provide cruelty-free bedding, but unfortunately does not allow animal companions.

To make a reservation at the Courtyard across the street, book online or call 703-751-4510 and reference the Animal Rights National Conference.
