Beacon Hotel - at 1615 Rhode Island Avenue NW, Washington DC - is the “official” hotel for Split This Rock Poetry Festival in 2010. Beacon's rates are modest compared to area hotels. Call1-800-821-4367 for reservations.
Some other resources to assist you in making alternative arrangements for your stay during the festival.
Maps of festival areas and Metro maps will be included in registration materials.
We highly recommend taking Metro - www.wmata.com. All festival sites are within easy walking distance of the Metro. Fares for Metro rides start at $1.65 (and may increase with the distance you ride). We recommend that you buy a Metro fare card with enough for several trips on it, to save time. Machines in each station take cash and credit cards. If you’ll be around longer for sight-seeing or lobbying, consider buying a 7-day pass for $26.40. These must be bought online at www.wmata.com/fares/purchase/store.
