(As of July 6, there is 1 room available at the Marriott for the nights of July 22, 23, 24 in our block.   I'll update it here though if any rooms are cancelled and become available on those nights.)

Overflow Hotel Room Block

Just one Metro stop away (Twinbrook Station), or 1.2 miles (23 minutes walking), is the Holiday Inn Express (it was the Legacy Hotel up until early June 2012), 1775 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852. (Room block available until July 5.)

Our negotiated room block there is $159 per night (single/double occupancy; $10 extra for additional people).

This rate includes Complimentary Breakfast, Complimentary Parking, Complimentary Internet in the Sleeping Rooms, and Complimentary Shuttle Service within 5 miles (based on first come, first served; you can call the front desk for it to see if it's available when you need it).

You can go here to book a room in this block. This block is available for the nights of July 19-25, 2012.

Another Hotel Option

In case you have any trouble booking at the Holiday Inn Express, I wanted to also let you know that there is a Hilton hotel next door to it at 1750 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852. It is also 1.2 miles from our WC 10 conference location, and very walkable.

***Update regarding the Metro (Subway)*** (update posted June 14) We just learned that on Saturday & Sunday, July 20 & 21, the DC Metro will not be operating trains between Friendship Heights & Grosvenor on the Red line. If you're staying at the Holiday Inn above, or another hotel in Rockville, you will not be affected and can take the subway one stop to White Flint, but if you are staying closer in to DC, this is probably your route in to the conference.  The Metro will supplement with busing in between the stations, but please allow extra time for this change. The Metro will run normally on week days.

The Bethesda North Marriott is conveniently located (see map) with access to Washington, DC via the White Flint Metro Station.
