Booking a Hotel Room

MAGFest is returning to the Gaylord National Hotel this January! Save the date, mark your calendar, request off work, and book plane tickets for January 4–7, 2018. Hotel bookings will open up very soon, so stay tuned to this page, our social media channels, and our mailing list for more info. Remember that even if rooms in National Harbor sell out, we have many hotels a short 10 minute drive/taxi/lyft away that WILL NOT sell out, so everyone will be able to get a room.

We are initially only releasing the booking link to pre-registered attendees

We will be sending a link and password to Attendees (and vendors) who registered before the hotel information deadline, and indicated interest in booking a hotel room. We anticipate sending this out the week of October 16-20, Your password can only be used to book one room, so don't give out your password! Later in the week, password protections will be removed from the booking system, and everyone, pre-registered or not, can get one or more rooms after that point.

MAGFest has partnered with Experient to provide hotel booking services for "Super" MAGFest 2018. The above link is the only way to get a discounted event room rate for the event. While some hotels may have standard priced rooms available, you will not be able to get the special event rate at any hotels by calling the hotel directly or using the hotel's website, you must use the above link. There are many hotels available if you are unable to get a room at the special event rate.

Larger Suites

To request a larger suite at the Gaylord, reserve any Standard/Atrium/Executive room you can, and then complete this form to request a larger suite. Requests will be handled on a first-come first serve basis. Hospitality, Presidential and Concept Suites will be allocated by MAGFest on a first-come first request basis. Costs are as follows:

Hospitality Suite: $441.96/night (inclusive of taxes and fees). No sleeping rooms are included with this suite, but can be added at the standard sleeping room rate on request.

Presidential Suite: $720.36/night (inclusive of taxes and fees). Includes one king-bed sleeping room. Additional attached rooms may be available at additional cost.

Concept Suites: $720.36/night (inclusive of taxes and fees). Depending on suite style, a concept suite may or may not include a sleeping room. Additional attached rooms may be available at additional cost.

Room Blocks

Only at the Gaylord, MAGFest can arrange for rooms to be grouped together in room blocks. Attendees must have an existing Gaylord room reservation to create or join a block.

To create a room block, choose a block leader, and have them fill out this form. Afterwards, anyone who wishes to join the room block should write "ROOM BLOCK: block name here" in the additional comments field as they book their Gaylord room through Experient. The block name may be added/modified/removed from an existing reservation, but all block requests must be received by December 1st, 2017.

The initial announcement of MAGFest 2018 room blocks will not be sent on this mailing list, you must have met the registration deadline for the event to be included in that announcement.
