Profile:
From the National Mall to the National Zoo, visitors fondly remember Washington, DC, for its iconic sights. The same can be said for meeting-goers attending events in the nation's capital. Recent developments near the Walter E. Washington Convention Center have transformed the downtown area. The 16-floor Marriott Marquis Washington, DC, for example, now provides meeting attendees with direct access to the convention center and adds an additional 1,175 rooms to the city, along with 105,000 square feet of event space and five dining and retail options. The city has also seen a cascade of new restaurants spill out across DC's neighborhoods, adding award-winning dining options to the city. With new experiences and accommodations to choose from, it's no wonder Lonely Planet ranked DC the No. 1 city to visit in 2015.

KEY FEATURES

HOTEL VARIETY
More than 120 hotel properties make up the DC landscape and are ready to host any group. Planners looking to wow guests with historical significance and luxury accommodations can check out the recently reopened Watergate Hotel. Or to host events among embassies and art galleries, head to Kimpton's Hotel Palomar located in the Dupont Circle neighborhood.

PRIME MEETING SPACE
The city's Walter E. Washington Convention Center is in a prime location downtown and features 2.3 million total square feet of available meeting space for both large and small gatherings. The convention center holds a mix of exhibit spaces, 77 breakout rooms, and the largest ballroom in the region, as well an outstanding $4 million art collection.

DC'S DINING SCENE
The District is home to 2,233 restaurants, many of which feature private spaces. For an intimate dinner, check out the chef's table at Blue Duck Tavern. For a larger affair, head to Tony & Joe's Seafood Place in Georgetown. Can't decide? Don't worry. Later this year, DC will be the fourth North American city to receive a Michelin Guide to local restaurants.
