Resources for Washington, D.C. Dining Include:
♦ Washington Post Dining Guide:  A brief introduction to the city's top-rated restaurants;
♦ Washington Post's Top 10 List of “Cheap Eats” (restaurants for those seeking fare that is simpler, but still of high quality).

In addition, the Washingtonian magazine offers its take on the restaurant scene with its 100 Best Restaurants Guide.

Dr. Nahid Maleki, AAO president and a long-time resident of the Washington area, agrees with the Washington Post’s Number 1 rating of the Inn at Little Washington in Washington, Virginia.

“The Inn at Little Washington has superb food,” says Dr. Maleki.  “It is expensive, and it takes an hour and a half to get there from Washington, but it is worth it if you can fit it into your schedule and if you are seeking a very unique experience. If you prefer not to travel to eat, there are also wonderful restaurants in the Convention Center neighborhood and very close by. My favorites include Central (1001 Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest), which has excellent food and fair prices. Le Diplomate on 14th Street is also a very good option.”

Annual Session Housing:  Options and Map Link
If you have not yet made hotel reservations in Washington, the first step is to check your registration confirmation for a link to discounted housing options in the AAO hotel block.  Note that the AAO works exclusively with OnPeak for Annual Session housing. Other hotel booking companies sometimes say that they work with the AAO, but that is not the case.


The Annual Session web page offers a map of the Convention Center area of the city, showing many nearby hotels. (Scroll down the page to view.)

Those preferring luxury hotels should note that these hotels are not included in the AAO hotel block; however, there are many such hotels in Washington.  For those who prefer them, options include the Hay-Adams Hotel, the St. Regis, the Watergate, Mandarin Oriental and the Trump International Hotel.
