Reunion Teasers - 2019 Washington D.C.
Keeping abreast of the latest activities for the reunion
I have signed the contract for the 2019 reunion to be held at the Hilton Washington Dulles Airport Hotel. The reunion dates are July 17 - 21, 2019 and an optional tour on Monday, July 22if enough folks are interested.
The Hilton Hotel is a full-service hotel only three miles from Washington Dulles Airport and has shuttle service to and from the airport. It is about a 30-minute drive to downtown Washington, DC from the hotel. The reunion room rate will be $109.00(plus tax) per night with two free breakfasts each morning. Additional tickets for guests will be available for $10 per day, per person. The hotel does offer shuttle service to shopping and restaurants within a limited distance.
The Hilton even has free parking which in the Metro DC area is hard to find. Here a link to the hotel website: http://www3.hilton.com/en/hotels/virginia/hilton-Washington-Dulles-airport-IADAHHF/index.html
The Hilton as you all know is a top flight hotel and they offered the best deal. Other major hotels wanted anywhere from $149 - $179 per night and no breakfast, and they wanted to charge us a use charge on the hospitality room and the banquet room. Basically, they wanted to charge us like we were a corporation with deep pockets.
One of our tours will be to the Naval Academy and I'm still working on planning another tour. More info on that later.
