For easier comparison, we have attached a spreadsheet with a breakdown of location, number of rooms, meeting space capacity, year built or renovated, pricing and occupancy rates by season, when available. Below is an overview of our findings.

Summary

To find group hotels or conference centers similar to the 4H Conference Center we used the suggested retreat finder database for locations in Washington DC, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia. We also used the retreat center directory published by the Episcopal Diocese of Washington. We narrowed down the list to retreat and conference centers located within approximately one hour of the Washington DC metro area. None of the locations published average occupancy rates and despite extensive research, this information was not available online. This may be due to a general reluctance by the industry to advertise slow periods as it could affect rates. However, Claymont and Camp Airy both have seasons that are closed to public groups. Price rates were not published for Pearlstone Center, Bon Secours, Hallowood, Wellspring, Carter Hall, or Claggett Center. These centers require a quote by phone or email.
