The official hotel for the 2020 International Academic Competitions Varsity & Junior Varsity US National Championships is the Crystal Gateway Marriott in Crystal City, Arlington, VA. We have secured a rate of $150 per night plus tax for quad occupancy. This rate is valid from Wednesday April 22 through (i.e. including) Sunday night April 26. We will try and work with teams who wish to extend their stay to also have this rate available on the extra nights, but cannot guarantee this, though the hotel has often extended this rate to most teams who book early enough. The hotel is connected by an underground walkway to a Metro station (i.e. the subway), which is about 3 minutes away. From the hotel to the center of DC it is only 3-4 stops. Between the hotel and the subway stop is an underground shopping mall with numerous food options for all price ranges. Internet access is free in the lobby and the competition rooms; in the bedrooms it is extra, but between smart phones and complimentary internet in the lobby, this shouldn’t be a major concern.

Please do NOT call any number to make reservations, as you will then not be counted as part of our group, and receive the group rate. For general questions regarding the hotel, you can call the Crystal Gateway Marriott directly at 703-920-3230. Please note that the hotel has sold out our room block every year! Please be sure to book early to reserve your rooms!
After 5pm on Friday, free parking can be found in the Crystal City complex (though NOT at the hotel itself!). The hotel is also located only about half a mile from Reagan National Airport, and there is a free airport shuttle as well. We recommend you fly into Reagan National if you plan on flying. Teams who fly will not need to rent cars to get around.
