Convention Hotel

We are anticipating high demand for hotel rooms at the Marriott Wardman Park and the Omni Shoreham in Washington, D.C. While we encourage all attendees to first attempt to book rooms at the official convention hotels, we have also partnered with A Room With A View to provide options should our block of hotels sell out.

A Room With A View can provide information on the designated JEA/NSPA overflow hotels. It will secure the lowest rates at hotels within a short distance or easy commute to the Marriott Wardman Park, where most convention activities take place. In the event that rooms become available at the Marriott Wardman Park due to cancellations, A Room With A View will notify conference attendees and help transfer reservations back to the Marriott hotel in the order in which they were booked.

A Room With A View can be reached at 1-800-780-4343 or ARWAV@charter.net (include number of rooms and arrival/depart dates in email). Please try to use this overflow service before Oct. 5, as A Room With A View will start canceling rooms soon thereafter so hotels can re-sell them.

To take full advantage of the convention, delegates who live outside the Washington, D.C., metro area are encouraged to stay at the sanctioned and officially designated JEA/NSPA convention hotel, the Marriott Wardman Park, or our overflow hotel, the Omni Shoreham.

Please realize that although an Oct. 14, 2014, deadline for reservations has been set, neither the hotels nor JEA/NSPA can guarantee availability.

Please do not book more rooms than you know you will need. Even if you cancel early, the hotels are not obligated to return rooms to the convention block. This may mean other delegates would have to pay more for their rooms in a convention hotel or that we would not “meet the block,” which could affect the cost of this and future conventions. Convention officials suggest you make hotel reservations well in advance of the Oct. 14 deadline. After this date, the hotels may release rooms being held for the convention room block to the general public.

As always, there is a limited number of rooms in each configuration. If the hotels are fully booked when your reservation arrives, you will be contacted concerning alternative hotels. JEA/NSPA cannot guarantee availability of overflow housing and do not provide transportation between the convention center and overflow hotels.

If there are any questions or issues in securing reservations, please contact JEA at staff@jea.org. Any new information about hotels will be linked on this page as it becomes available.
