The Marriott Marquis is a new, monumental, flagship hotel where business meets pleasure.  Retreat and recharge in vibrant rooms and suites with refined design elements, cutting-edge features, and deluxe amenities.  Located in downtown Washington and adjacent to Penn Quarter and City Center, the Marriott Marquis is convenient to Chinatown, the National Mall, and the Smithsonian Museums. Spanning nearly a city block, the posh, LEED® Silver certified hotel is a vibrant, cutting-edge destination. 

A block of rooms has been reserved for AAC&U and ACAD meeting participants with the special conference rate of $231 for a single occupancy room or $241 for double occupancy. We suggest you make reservations online but, if calling the hotel, please be certain to state that you are with AAC&U to receive this special rate.

AAC&U registrants will receive complimentary Internet access in their guest rooms and complimentary access to the 8,000 square-ft fitness center.

This conference rate is available only until December 20, 2019, but we encourage participants to make hotel reservations as soon as possible.  Once the AAC&U room block is sold out—often in October and well before the cut-off date—the discounted rate will no longer apply.
