  9. Hi, For May 3-5, 2009: After 3 bids, no go at $150 for 3.5* DC Conv cntr, downtown (There's a 7,000 person convention in town that Sun-Tue that I'm attending.) So went for Hotwire, $169 / night in same area, 3.5*. Got Club Quarters, Washington Hotel Address: 839 17th Street N.W., Washington, DC, 20006 Hotel Phone:(202) 463-6400 Reviews on trip advisor comment on the very small rooms. C'est la vie...

Yes, used the PRICELINE link $140 4* Convention Center: nope $180 4* Convention Center or White house / downtown: nope $205 3* or 4* Convention Center or White house / downtown: success at the Doubletree Washington Since I'm splitting the cost with a buddy who is going to the same conf, I don't feel too bad.
