CON.TXT 2020 will be held again at the Residence Inn Arlington Pentagon City in the exciting Pentagon City neighborhood of Arlington, Va., just across the river from Washington, D.C. Events will begin the morning of Friday, July 23rd and go through the afternoon of Sunday, July 26th.

This year, we will only have the King Studio available at the con rate of $139 (plus tax) per night. All rooms have a sofa-bed in addition to the king sized bed. This is a special CON.TXT rate, and it is guaranteed only until the beginning of July. Reserve early to ensure you get the type of room you want! 

RESERVATIONS:  There are two handy ways to book your hotel room.

Note: If you book online and attempt to make your reservation to check in prior to 7/23/20 or stay beyond 7/26/20, the system will respond that there are no rooms available. If you want to stay outside those dates, make a separate reservation and contact us at so we can ask the hotel to manually give you a rate of $169 per night. Also, if you are booking a room for two or more people, you will need to call the hotel after booking the room to add the additional names to the registration. (If you are planning to check in together, you are not required to add the names ahead of time; this is mostly useful for people who will be checking in separately.)
