Hi, I am a female postdoc from Northwestern University Chicago USA. I am planning to attend a workshop on the 10th so I will arive at the 9th or 10th and stay until the 15th. I would like to keep the costs low so I would like to share a room with up to 3 others depending on the room rate. I have actually done 2 reservations and I am not sure what would have the most interest. One cheaper where I stayed for a previous SfN and 1 conference hotel. I could cancel/adjust depending on interest or if you have an inexpensive room to share.
The first option is the Old Colony Inn in Alexandria, the room rate is a total of 148/night (37-74$/person/night) and includes breakfast. It is close to the Reagan Airport and has a free shuttle service to a Metro stop that runs early morning to 8pm (cab may be 10$).
The second option is the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill, 400 New Jersey Avenue NW, Washington, DC. The room rate with taxes is approx 412/night with 4 person occupancy (104/person). It does not include breakfast. It is part of the SfN shuttle service. But to give you an idea it is about 20 min to the convention center with public transportation.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
