In effort to ensure the 2014 TASH Conference is inclusive, we negotiated the best rate in town for this year’s event.
The Renaissance Washington, DC Downtown Hotel is located at 999 9th St. NW just blocks from the United States Capitol. TASH attendees will enjoy a special rate of $169 per night plus tax (the rate is usually around $400).
In addition to the great hotel rate, conference attendees are just steps away from hundreds of attractions including:
- The Regal Gallery Place Stadium
- Lucky Strike Bowling Alley
- Museums such as The National Museum of Crime & Punishment, the National Portrait Gallery, and the Newseum
- Access to 3 metro lines
- Restaurants galore
- Easy access to the National Mall, home of the American History Museum, Air and Space Museum, Natural History, the American Indian Museum, The National Archives, several art galleries, the Library of Congress and much, much more!
So whether you’re in need of great food, finding your inner Bonnie & Clyde at the National Museum of Crime & Punishment, or seeing the Declaration of Independence at the National Archives, you can find it ALL within walking distance at the 2014 TASH Conference. Most museums are free, but some charge entry fees.
So if you would like to visit these museums on December 6 or 7 (after the conference), just present your debit or credit card and photo ID at the museum ticket office and enjoy!
Newseum- Sat 9 a.m.-5 p.m., Sun 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
One of the top attractions in Washington, D.C., the Newseum’s 250,000-square-foot news museum offers visitors a state-of-the-art experience that blends news history with up-to-the-second technology and hands-on exhibits. The Newseum Institute serves as a forum for First Amendment study, exploration and education. The Newseum is a 501(c)(3) public charity funded by generous individuals, corporations and foundations, including the Freedom Forum.
The mission of the Newseum is to champion the five freedoms of the First Amendment through education, information and entertainment.
Founded in 1987, NMWA is the only major museum in the world solely dedicated to recognizing women’s creative contributions.
By bringing to light remarkable women artists of the past while also promoting the best women artists working today, the museum directly addresses the gender imbalance in the presentation of art in the U.S. and abroad, thus assuring great women artists a place of honor now and into the future.
