February 16-18 2007 Washington DC - Katsucon

Post by radial »

Well some interest has been given from myself, Scott and John to visit the Washington DC anime convention Katsucon. website here: http://katsucon.com/

The convention is at the beautiful 4 star Omni Shoreham Hotel, website here: http://www.omnihotels.com/FindAHotel/Wa ... reham.aspx
However, the hotel is full. Overflow hotels across the street are available, but not cheap. Alan suggested staying in Alexandria and taking the shuttle and metro around.

This is RIGHT in the middle of DC. I hate DC traffic, but Alan contends the metro will help that. Katsucon is known for being a very busy, and small con. 2003 a huge snow storm hit DC during the last day of the con, trapping a lot of people there. Here's an interesting photo from that day:

Pictures from of the hotel and convention center area can be found here: http://flickr.com/search/?w=all&q=omni+ ... tel&m=text

Jessica, you guys interested in this at all?
