 Washington, DC Hotel Information Minimize



The Society for American Archaeology (SAA) has learned of a company which is attempting to do business with SAA exhibitors and attendees by soliciting them for sleeping rooms in regards to the 2018 Annual Meeting to be held in Washington, D.C.. SAA does not endorse booking hotel reservations via another company or source. The only authorized source for making hotel room reservations for the Annual Meeting is the SAA web site and with the hotel directly.

If you receive any solicitations either via email or telephone from other third parties/vendors incorrectly identifying themselves as an official SAA housing representative or member of exhibition services, we ask that you please delete the message immediately, ignore any further requests, and contact SAA’s executive director immediately at +1(202)559-4580.


SAA’s 83rd Annual Meeting will be held at:

Washington Marriott Wardman Park
2660 Woodley Road NW
Washington, DC 20008
