I second what Sean is saying -- using the metro to get to the 
conference allows for getting a hotel farther away and therefore
at a cheaper rate. Last year I decided to attend pretty late and 
could only find something affordable in Silver Springs MD - but 
hotel was a block from a metro stop and it never took more than 
30 minutes to get to GWU.
