The convention special room rate is $109 per night + tax for a single king or two queen beds. Since Monday, October 14th is a federal holiday, the hotel has agreed to extend the room rates for the convention for an additional 3 days both before and into the week following the convention.
The hotel is in walking distance to the second largest shopping mall in the United States with shops and dining to meet any tastes. Also, within driving distance are the Valley Forge National Park (whose accommodations during the winters of the American Revolution were not as luxurious as our hotel), Longwood Gardens (the gardens of the Dupont family), and many more places of interest.

Why should I stay at the convention hotel?
It is important to note that the convention committee must commit to a block of rooms as the incentive to get access to all of the space needed for the clinics, contests, banquet and other events offered to convention attendees.
If we don’t fill the room block as required, it will cost the convention a substantial additional amount. We priced the convention to keep it a low cost event for our attendees. Please help us ensure this low cost by staying at the convention hotel. We’re sure that you will be pleased with your decision.
The Forager Restaurant and Lounge is open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert. Prepaid breakfast tickets are available for $15, including tip at registration (or later--just contact the registrar if and when you decide).
