Good location, lots of restaurants nearby and small parks within walking distance. Good facility with lots of restroom facilities and that are reasonably clean (the cleaning crew could visit more frequently though). Good seating, sign posts/indicators).

As far as convention centers go, Walter E. Washington Convention Center is a good one. The inside is roomy with multiple floors and plenty of rooms for side meetings. There are many hotels, restaurants and attractions close by and Chinatown is a short five-minute walk...More

Marriot, and Courtyard come to mind. There are two transportation companies at the airport that can help you from the airport to the hotel. You can find them on the Reagan airport website.

The DC area airport closest to the convention center is Reagan/National. It is a quick cab ride from airport to convention center.
