Other hotel suggestions:
This link will show you the route the shuttle bus takes.  There are five stops besides the one just below CGA offices (800 Maine Ave).  Some alternate hotel options that are near shuttle stops include: Hyatt Place Washington DC/National Mall; Citizenm Washington DC Capitol Hotel; Holiday Inn Washington Capitol-National Mall; and the Hilton Washington DC National Mall/The Wharf
 
Free shuttle stops are at the L-Enfant Metro Station, so you can consider using the Metro to come over from Pentagon City/Crystal City, Virginia (which has a lot of hotel offerings too) or other parts of DC.  L-Enfant is a major transfer point for the Metro.  The Orange, Silver, Blue, Yellow, and Green lines all pass through L-Enfant.  Here is a link to the Metro Map in case it is helpful.  L’Enfant has one of the big bullseye marks on it.  Please allot extra travel time if you select a hotel option away from the immediate vicinity of the CGA office. 

All APDA events and meals will be held at Cornerstone Government Affairs (CGA) office located at 
800 Maine Avenue, SW, Washington, DC 20024
 
In order to assure that ALL Portable Diagnostic Stakeholders are represented, we ask Attendees and Non Attendess to complete this Questionaire
