Sleeping Rooms - 15% Discount for Chess Players - Three Hotel Options

There are three hotels in the same complex as the Dulles Conference Center with a discounted room rate for the chess tournament. The Best Western and Hampton Inn are right in front of the Conference Center (only about a 10-second walk) and they both offer free breakfast. The Holiday Inn is about a three-minute walk, but offers additional amenities that some players might prefer, such as a restaurant open for dinner. The Holiday Inn does not have free breakfast. The Best Western has the cheapest rate of roughly $85 per night. Note that these rates fluctuate, so this is just a rough estimate of what the rate is sometimes. The Best Western and Hampton Inn links require you to enter a rate code (see below), but the Holiday Inn link automatically takes you to the discounted rate.
