The Renaissance Washington DC Downtown Hotel, 999 9th St., NW, Washington, DC 20001 is our 2016 race headquarters hotel and will be offering special race room rates. Rate information and online reservations will be available here after the entry lottery is completed.
The Renaissance is about 0.6 mile from the staging area on the Washington Monument Grounds and about 0.5 mile from the Health and Fitness Expo at the National Building Museum. The closest Metro stop to the hotel is the Gallery Place Metro stop on the Yellow, Green and Red lines. If you are accepted to the race, be sure to make your reservations as soon as you can after the lottery, as hotel space in Washington during cherry blossom season is very limited.
