The room rate for Wikimania 2012 attendees is $189/night ($216.41/night with 14.5% hotel tax). You must reserve by June 18, 2012. There is no guarantee of availability after that date. If you reserve a room for 4 people is 229,4/night (plus taxes) so 57,35 per person (plus taxes), but there are two double beds, not 4 beds.

State Plaza Hotel

The State Plaza Hotel is located just three blocks away from the Marvin Center. Basic amenities are offered, including free wireless Internet access. Breakfast costs an extra $12/day. Two people can share a room at no additional cost, but there is a $20/night fee for triple occupancy.

The room rate for Wikimania 2012 attendees is $149/night ($170.61/night with 14.5% hotel tax) if you book before June 1. Between June 1-14, the rate is $159/night ($182.06), and between June 15-30, the rate is $169/night ($193.51).

Note that you may be able to get a cheaper rate if you book directly through the State Plaza Hotel website. If you can get a cheaper rate, do it that way, since the Wikimania conference is not affected one way or another.

St. Gregory Hotel

This very nice boutique hotel is only a 15 minute walk from the conference site, and you are still located close to Dupont Circle. The rate is $149.00 ($170.61/night with 14.5% hotel tax) until June 30th for single or double occupancy. Breakfast not included.

Kimpton Helix / Rouge

Stay at either one of these two boutique Kimpton hotels with a rate of $149.00 ($170.61/night with 14.5% hotel tax). The rate includes continental breakfast. Expect to walk 25 minutes to the conference site (very safe walk, flat terrain). Or take a cab (or share) for $10.00 each way and you'll still come out saving money. You are situated very close (10 minute walk) to the Dupont Circle Hotel, which is the hub of all after-conference activities.
