We have set aside a block of rooms at the Kimpton Topaz Hotel at a remarkable rate of $119/night for the weekend (Friday and Saturday nights). If you want to take advantage of that rate for Thursday or Sunday they are willing to offer that rate for those days as well providing the rooms available. To register simply drop by here to reserve for one. The hotel will release the block to open these to general guests on 1 June 2019, so please make any and all reservations at the Topaz before midnight 31 May 2019
The Thurgood Marshall Center is located north of the City Center of Washington, DC near the bustling U Street area. The U St/African-American Civil War Memorial/Cardozo Station on the Green and Yellow metro lines is only a couple of blocks away.
For those coming into town that would like to arrive more centrally, Washington National Airport (DCA) is on the Yellow metro line. Washington Dulles airport is the next nearest airport, but is about 20 miles outside of the city. The Washington Flyer taxis service the airport. Farther away is Baltimore-Washington International. It does connect up to Amtrak and MARTA regional trains that will take you to Union Station. From there you could take the redline to Chinatown station and switch to the green or yellow lines.
