The discounted AOAC room rate is now closed, but rooms are still available. Contact Marriott at 1-800-393-3450 for rates and reservations. Reference the Gaithersburg Marriott Washingtonian Center and “AOAC” as the group name.
AOAC contracts for a specific number of rooms at competitive nightly rates. Filling a room block is important because it provides a “report card” on the Association to future meeting sites. By establishing a history of consistently filling the room block, AOAC can secure both competitive room rates and larger blocks in subsequent years. Those rooms that go unused by AOAC attendees are charged back to AOAC and cause AOAC to raise registration rates to cover the expenses of hotel rooms left vacant.
