Greetings from Washington, D.C.!

History, attractions and proximity to lawmakers make the city an ideal host for our conference

Where we’ll be gathering

1770 Euclid Street NW
Washington, D.C. 20009

A Washington, D.C.-inspired hotel housed inside a 110-year-old church, you’ll find history and charm around every corner at the LINE DC. Amenities include an on-premise coffee shop, restaurant, bar, fitness center, and pet-friendly rooms.

Our group block at the host hotel is sold out. The LINE DC has availability over the event dates but not at our discounted conference rate. Booking information will be provided in your registration confirmation email. Alternative lodging options are located near the hotel.

The surrounding neighborhood

The LINE DC hotel is located in the vibrant, pedestrian-friendly neighborhood of Adams Morgan, an enclave in northwest D.C. It’s about one and a half miles north of the White House and four miles north of the U.S. Capitol.

As our hotel’s website says, “This isn’t the D.C. of monuments and men in suits.” Restaurants, art, charming row houses, and nightlife are just steps away from the hotel. You can find a list of some of our hotel’s favorite establishments here.

Things to do around the city

Washington, D.C., is a city made up of unique neighborhoods that are all worth a visit. So, if you venture outside of Adams Morgan, you’ll discover amazing restaurants, waterfront views, shopping, and beautiful parks all surrounded by history.

Here’s a look at just a few of the things you can do while in town.

Capitol visits: The U.S. senators and representatives from the state or congressional district in which you reside are great resources for tours of the U.S. Capitol.
