We have reserved a block at the Holiday Inn Roslyn
Thank you for the signed contract, the Georgetown Debate OR GD6 block is now active in our reservations system.
This hotel is directly across the street from the Marriott the Georgetown tournament has used in the past. I did try to get rooms there, but they would only agree to $199/night because the tournament is now on a holiday weekend.
Please reserve early and please don't take more rooms than you anticipate needing.
