Housing and Transportation Information
The NIST campus is located in Gaithersburg Maryland 10 miles north of the Wasthington DC beltway. Dulles, Reagan-National and BWI airports all service the greater DC area and with the new inter-county connector almost equidistant from Gaithersburg. The Holiday Inn on highway 355 (North Frederick Avenue) and Montgomery Village Avenue is the Meeting hotel.


While there is no reserved block of rooms at any hotel, the Holiday Inn will be the location of the Project planning sessions on Saturday and Sunday morning, and will also be the location for the meet and greet on Thursday evening. Project personel are encouraged to consider this hotel for convenience of informal get togethers which is expected to play a large role in the working part of this meeting. Other nearby hotels include the Hilton and TownePlace Suites on Perry Parkway, and the Wyndham on Russel Ave. The Washingtonion center nearby offers a number of hotels within a walkable district of shopping, movies, and restaurants. Keep in mind if not using the Holiday Inn that you may want to have your own car to get to the meeting from the hotel. For those staying in the Holiday Inn there should be plenty of people with cars with whom to hitch a ride.

The easiest way to travel to the hotel from any of the three nearby airports is to go to the airport shared ride counters and book a shuttle. Cost should be on the order of $35/person. For larger groups a taxi will probably be more economical.
