Hotel Information

Gaylord PhotoThe Historical Novel Society’s North American conference will be held June 20-22, 2019, at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in Oxon Hill, Maryland, located on the Potomac River just minutes from Washington, DC.

HNS has negotiated a very special rate of $169/night (+$22 daily resort fee + taxes) for guest rooms. This is an extraordinarily low rate for a world-class property like the Gaylord. For those interested in cutting costs further by room-sharing at the Gaylord with another conference attendee, please reach out on our Facebook message board

To learn more about the hotel’s amenities, see this blog post from Venue Chair Christine Trent. Or, watch a video showcasing the hotel.


  • As you go through the room reservation process, on the “Guest Information” page is a box marked “Bed Type/Additional Requests.”  Please indicate in the Bed Type/Additional Requests box whether you wish a King or Two Queens (in addition to any other special requests you may have). If you do not specify what room type you want, you will be assigned according to the hotel’s room inventory at check-in and cannot be guaranteed your room-type preference at that time.
  • Also, please note that Atrium View rooms, overlooking the Gaylord’s 18-story glass atrium, are available for an additional $40/night.
