WASHINGTON -- The Washington D.C. Convention and Visitors
Association and the D.C. Committee to Promote Washington partnered
with the Hotel Reservations Network to provide a hotel-booking
service at the city's official Web site, www.washington.org.
By entering the Vacation Planning section of the site, visitors
can access a Hotel Discounts area that allows them to find and book
hotels based on their check-in dates, length of stay, hotel rates
and other factors.
The service also provides immediate confirmation on bookings as
well as photos of rooms and maps. HRN pays agents commissions for
bookings made at the site, according to a bureau representative.
Hotel reservations also can be made by calling (800) 823-9652.
