National Police Week 2013, Hotel Accommodations

Planit Meetings is proud to be working again with the Fraternal Order of Police and the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund to provide hotel accommodations for National Police Week.
In 1962, President Kennedy designated May 15 Peace Officers Memorial Day, with the week in which it falls, Police Week.  In 1982, the Memorial Service honoring fallen officers began as a gathering  of about 120 survivors and supporters in Senate Park on Cap Hill. The event known as National Police Week, has grown into a series of events, over four days, attended by thousands of survivors and law enforcement officers from every branch, coming to Washington from all over the world, to celebrate and honor the lives of those who gave the ultimate sacrifice. Planit Meetings is so honored to participate in this event!

Planit Meetings has hotel room blocks all over the DC area, at every price point, with no pre-pay, and always cancelable. We will work with your budget and hotel requirements, to help you get to National Police Week. The rates that we are offering are far lower than the rates that hotels can offer you.

Go to the Police Week website, and click on the hotels icon, for a complete list of Police Week hotel room blocks that are not sold out. www.policeweek.org.

If you have any questions about hotels, please don't hesitate to contact Planit Meetings; we are happy to help you find exactly what hotels you need, and can describe particulars about hotels to you. 

All the hotels that we have selected for Police Week 2013 are wonderful; here are two of the great options:
Courtyard Foggy Bottom
The Courtyard Marriott Foggy Bottom is a new hotel, located near the west end of the Mall, by the Foggy Bottom metro, 9 floors, 147 rooms, the high quality associated with Marriott. Complimentary WiFi in all common areas, with the Bistro restaurant offering an evening bar.

The Hyatt Regeny Crystal City is a good option, if you want to be close to, but not in, the city. Near Reagan National Airport, on the metro, the hotel features an outdoor pool, use of golf clubs (remember the public golf course on Hains Point is open almost year round), two bars, computer rental, health club, free airport transport. The hotel is elegant and luxurious, but also casual and comfortable, with easy access to all Police Week venues!
