I've declined, as I don't think it will be possible. However, if the Great Reopening happens earlier than expected I'll reconsider. At this stage, available air fares are still 'unrealistic', although that would change if travel restrictions from here ease. Have a great time, guys!

If I’m up in the PNW in January, probably not; although, there are direct flights from SEA. Would really like to go, though. Any Kimpton Hotels in the DuPont area folks might recommend?

There used to be the Palomar in Dupont but it's no longer a Kimpton. I'm not sure about other Kimptons in the area.

As @Derrick mentions there is The George within a block of MAL. I've stayed there and liked it. I'm booked there for this trip.

I stayed at one on the 2100 block of P Street (a couple of blocks from Du Pont Circle) that was quite reasonable, but it looks like it's the Royal Sonesta now. A couple of weeks later I stayed at another IHG property (Holiday Inn at 1500-ish RI Avenue), also reasonable.

Edited to add: I booked the then Kimpton place through Qantas Hotels which meant I earned miles for it but it also meant the stay didn't count towards IHG rewards.

The DC Kimptons were sold and most have other affiliations now. The Rouge is now the Banneker, but still a Kimpton. It had a major renovation.

The Banneker is the only Kimpton hotel left in the DuPont area.  The Palomar and the Madera (two of my favorites) are, alas, no longer in the IHG/Kimpton family.

The Monaco is in my opinion the best but it's one mile from Dupont in the Chinatown/Gallery place area.

I switched my reservation to the Yotel Hotel, located across the street from the Hyatt. It was sold out previously, but they added another block of rooms.

I'd stayed there before when it was under different management, but not since it's been a Yotel.

While I have enjoyed attending this event several times in the past, I am unable to make it this year.  I will miss seeing the regulars and meeting new attendees. Have fun, y’all.
