We are excited to host the 2024 Coastal & Estuarine Summit at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City at Reagan National Airport. We will be hosting the summit in this venue. All concurrent sessions will be hosted here and field trips will leave from this location.


Hotel rates will be the current federal per diem rate for everyone, not just for federal employees.  That rate is currently $258/night but will change in October. As events will start each day by 7 am, we strongly encourage attendees to book their rooms as soon as possible so as not to miss out on any part of the Summit!


The venue is located in Arlington, Virginia. The closest airport is Reagan National Airport (DCA), followed by Dulles International Airport (IAD). The venue is accessible by a free shuttle from Reagan National Airport.

The Hyatt Regency is conveniently located near the Crystal City Metro Station, granting attendees access to the Blue and Yellow Metro lines. Both lines run from Reagan National Airport into the heart of Downtown DC allowing for easy access to the Capitol, agency headquarters, and popular tourist destinations. A full Metro map can be found here.

If you’re arriving via Amtrak, you can access the Metro via the stop at Union Station or utilize a ride-share or taxi.
