Driving Directions to Our Hotel

This is a large PDF document (3 MB) with a full-page detailed map of the streets around our hotel.  It should print reasonable sharp, which is why the file is so big.  The directions on the back were put together from suggested driving directions from various mapping web sites.  These directions have not been user-tested.  We suggest you visit your favorite map web site and download your own turn-by-turn maps to cross-check against these directions.


The hotel is discounting their parking fee by 50% for SMOFcon 22 members.  You are not going to find a better deal than that near the hotel.  You may not ever be able to find a parking facility near the hotel that will be open during the weekend.  However, you may be able to find street parking near the hotel during the weekend if you're day-tripping.  Another good deal for day-trippers would be parking at a Maryland or Virginia Metro station and taking a Metro train to the McPherson Square station.
