My conference package included room and 3 all you can eat meals daily. The cafeteria style dining featuered good, albeit not particularly fancy food. The room was spartan but fully functional and wi-fi was free. It was a perfect place to focus on the work of the conference with many of the details taken care of.

Where to begin? The rooms are always 'rustic' so that was not the issue. I reported these issues to the front desk and they took care of some and not others. Bldg N Flr 4 Rm 204: 1. When I checked in, there was trash in the trashcan by the desk in the room 2. I received no housekeeping services...

I came here for a conference for several days and four nights. After flying into Dulles airport I took a shuttle bus which took about 30 to 40 minutes. The conference center is located in a very pretty area outside of Leesburg Virginia, but it is very distant from anything else. The campus gives an appearance of a college environment....

Dear DrKatieRN, Thank you for this very complete review. I’d like to address a few things. We are indeed interviewing companies to create a Wayfinding app for attendees that would tie into Iphone, etc. to help with the issue of locating rooms. We know this is a challenge, and we hope when you return, that we’ll have this in place....

The dining experience is the best thing to brag about here. The particular room I was given was less than desirable. Despite the room, the food was great, meeting rooms were really nice, and the staff which seemed to be a mix of really young and old were excellent. Confusing layout as far as navigating around and it felt like...

I stayed at The National Conference Center for 10 days in January 2017 while attending training classes for my employer. Having previously worked in the hospitality industry as a meeting planner, I did not expect too much from this property that is used exclusively as a conference center. I must say I was pleasantly surprised by the venue and especially...

I was at the Conference Center for our annual quilting retreat (we've actually added a second date over the past few years). We have such a beautiful, light-filled room, with everything we need, so that we can concentrate on our projects. The dining set-up is fantastic, with ample hours for breakfast, lunch, and dinner service, and a wonderful selection of...
