Hi Melanie, Union Station (Amtrak destination) looks to be about 3 blocks from the park. We will just walk from the train station. We are not staying overnight - just taking the 6:30pm train back.
Hope this helps.
Melanie, I'd call them as I live here and didn't make these arrangements. Syvonne Backe or Ellen Snyder made the contact with the hotel. Just identify yourself as part of a Tea Party in WDC for the 4th of July.
Correction - that was Fairfax, VA. We booked the room aroubd a month back. there were 3 tiers of prices then: $64, $99 and $250+. There were a limited number of the cheaper rooms. $64 came without breakfast and was a prepay deal. $99 was with breakfast and I don't think it erquired prepay. The $250 rate was heir "normal" rate. But again, the key for me was going through Hotels.com. Hope this helps.
