HOTEL ROOM BLOCK
The ShmooCon room rate at the Washington Hilton is $215/night plus taxes and fees. Book through Hilton Passkey here. You can also book directly using the GROUP code 90R.
If you book a room at the Hilton outside of our block (meaning you didn’t use the link or code we provide), please let us know by sending us an email with the reservation id and the last name on the room (we don’t need any other information). This allows us to still get credit towards our room commitment which keeps both us and the hotel happy.

ADDITIONAL DRIVING DIRECTIONS
The hotel provides written driving directions if you’d like to confirm that Google is sending you off the correct pier. When driving in DC, we highly recommend listening to the day’s traffic reports as you make your way into the city. WTOP (FM 103.5) has traffic and weather every ten minutes “on the 8’s” and can be a lifesaver.
DC in January can be unpredictable when it comes to weather. We’ve lived through feet of snow as well as been 70 degrees and balmy. Be sure to check the forecast before you arrive.
