Lodging Options for Friday Night
We highly advise you to consider staying over Friday night at one of the two lockhouses that are reserved for FreeWalkers. We had a very good experience in the past renting out these building exclusively for our use. You get to experience life in the historic building and enjoy a dinner and good company. The only problem is there is limited space and we will most likely have a full house of 8 in each, so there a limit to privacy. The cost/value is the best you will find and you will help support our program by doing so. It takes a lot of effort to organize this event and we need participation to make it work right. Check out our options and save and enjoy Friday night before the event and get a ride back on Saturday - we take care of everything.
If you prefer personal privacy you'll want to get a place to stay as close as possible to
Anglers Inn Parking Lot (our start)
10790 MacArthur Blvd, Potomac, MD 20854.
You should be able to get a room at about $80-90 per night in the area. If you are looking to share expense with others let us know at registration and we try to help connect you with others.
Recommendation: Bolger Center
9600 Newbridge Drive, Potomac, MD 20854-4436. USA
This is the closest hotel to the start as it's about five miles from the start. This is both a conference center and hotel. You will probably need to get a taxi ride to the start which can usually be shared with others as we have in the past.
Reservations directly @ hotel:
If you book directly you can cancel without forfeit up to 6pm date of arrival but rates may run higher. Check to see if they will pick you up at Bethesda Metro.
NOTE: There are other hotels in Bethesda to stay but will require a taxi ride to the start.
