---+++ Meeting Location and Access
The meeting will be held at the NMNH, located at 10th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW, Washington DC. The closest metro stations are Smithsonian (orange and blue lines), Federal Triangle (orange and blue lines), and Archives/Navy Memorial/Penn Quarter (yellow and green lines).
Please enter via Constitution Avenue on Tuesday and Wednesday (there is an entry off the National Mall, but visitors are directed to the Constitution entry prior to public hours for security purposes). Please be aware that visitors entering the building pass through a magnetometer and their bags may be searched. There is a large carved stone figure from Easter Island in the Constitution Avenue Lobby. We will meet at this figure both mornings at 8:45 so that I can ensure you have a visitor's badge and can escort you to the meeting rooms. If your arrival at the museum is delayed, please call me on my cell phone so I can make arrangements for you to be escorted to the meeting room. My number is 703 217-5411.
January 28 - - morning session to be held in the Rose Room, Department of Anthropology; afternoon session to be held in the Kerby Room, 3rd Floor East Court
January 29 - - morning and afternoon sessions to be held in the Rose Room, Department of Anthropology

---+++ Hotels
Carol says NMNH frequently directs folks towards
* The State Plaza, 2117 E St NW, Tel 202 861-8200
* The Hotel Monaco, 700 F St, Tel 202 628-7177
* Hotel Lombardy, 2019 Pennsylvania Avenue, tel 202 828-2600
* Courtyard by Marriott, 900 F St., tel 202 638-4600

Not that others aren&#8217;t good, but these are familiar.
Barbara says:
* In November I stayed for an EOL meeting at the Hilton Garden Inn that was only about a 10 minute walk from NMNH. I think it was close to $200 per night, but breakfast was included, and I didn't need to buy metro passes.
