Event planners from around the nation have nominated Arlington and the Arlington Convention and Visitors Service for a 2017 Reader’s Choice Award from “ConventionSouth” magazine. The publication focuses on options for events in what is considered the South’s 16 states. The annual Reader’s Choice Award recognizes excellence, creativity and professionalism among destinations, convention and visitors bureaus, hotels and meeting facilities.
With 44 hotels, more than 11,000 sleeping rooms, and nearly 320,000 square feet of meeting space, Arlington offers meeting and group guests monumental views of the nation’s capital, rich history and thriving neighborhoods like Ballston, Crystal City, Rosslyn, and others. Just across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., and conveniently central in the capital region, Arlington has hotel rates averaging 20 percent lower than those at downtown D.C. properties. Its unique combination of national history and local flavor also means unexpected fun for meetings and groups.
