August 3 - 6 ♦ Hilton Mark Center
just outside of Washington, DC


HiltonbdroomWe are pleased to announce that we will once again meet in one of the national capital area's finest conference venues - the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center Hotel located at 5000 Seminary Rd, Alexandria, VA 22311. This is the same venue we had in 2006, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2015.

Important Update: We've filled up our room block at the Hilton Alexandria Mark Center. We have negotiated the same discounted rate of $102/night + tax (14.5% + $1) at the nearby Courtyard Marriott located at 4641 Kenmore Ave, Alexandria, VA 22304. The Courtyard Marriott is .5 miles away (about a 10-minute walk), provides a free shuttle to and from the Hilton Mark Center, and has cruelty-free bedding. Unfortunately dogs are not welcome. 

To book your room at the Courtyard Marriott, please call the hotel directly at 703-751-4510 and mention the Animal Rights National Conference to receive the discounted rate.

At our discounted rate, two people to a room works out to $60/night (inclusive) and four people to a room works out to about $30/night (inclusive). You can use our message boards to find others that want to share a room.

The Hilton Mark Center offers $7/day parking to hotel guests ($11/day for attendees not staying at the hotel) and free shuttle to the Metro and National Airport.

If you have questions or problems with getting the discounted rates at either hotel, please call us at 301-530-1737 to see if we can help. We also recommend connecting with other attendees for room shares. Additionally, we offer $20/night floor accommodations for those on tight budgets.
