Longpoint 2017 offers a venue with training and sleeping rooms all under one roof. To get from your hotel room to the hall is a one minute walk. You do not have to deal with shuttling between where you sleep and where you fight. Call the hotel to reserve a room under the Longpoint room block or click here to reserve online. Some booking options seems to be having issues at the moment. We are working on resolving this issue. If you would like to book immediately and the online link isn't working, call the hotel.
Hilton Baltimore Address and Contact
401 West Pratt Street
Baltimore, MD 21202, US
The Hilton offers a restaurant, a coffee shop, and a bar in house. Additionally, the area is surrounded by almost any type of restaurant, bar, lounge, café, or picnic area you could want. Unlike previous years, options for food are almost unlimited. Some suggestions will be provided with registration.
The ballroom totals about 25,000 square feet, with an additional 19,000 sq feet of lobby space we are open to using. The ballroom will be split into the main hall, three medium sized rooms, and two small rooms. The main hall and two medium rooms will function as our competition area. The other medium room and the two small rooms are class space. The lobby will be used for registration and check in, vendors, dedicated sparring rings, and gear stowage. A layout map will be provided with registration.
Airports and Transportation
We recommend taking the Baltimore Light Rail service into the city. The Camden Yards Station is across the street, and the Convention Center Station is one block away, without need to even cross the street: https://mta.maryland.gov/light-rail
The Hilton Baltimore's Maps and Directions page contains more information about travel and parking.
From the North:
Timonium Fairgrounds Station , on Greenspring Drive, half-way between Exit 16 and 17 of I-83
From the South:
Cromwell Glen Burnie Station, on 848 Baltimore-Annapolis Road, East of Exit 16 of I-97
From BWI Airport:
Walk to the far end of the terminal past the international terminal. The BWI Marshall Light Rail Station is located immediately outside the lower level of the terminal building, adjacent to Concourse E.
Baltimore Penn Station has a branch terminus of the Light Rail, and the main line itself is a two block walk from the Station itself; check schedules.
From Dulles or Reagan National Airports:
Multiple Shuttle Services exist which transport directly between airports. Our recommendation is to use one of these to get to BWI Airport, then take the train from there. It will take longer, but be significantly less expensive. http://www.theairportshuttle.com/airport_to_airport
It may also be possible to take a shuttle directly from airport to downtown Baltimore (the hotel), but may cost twice as much each way.
By other Public Transit:
MARC Camden Line (don’t take the Penn Line!!) also stops at the Camden Yards Station, and can be accessed at Union Station in DC, which is itself accessible on the Red Line of the DC Metro:
Downside: MARC Train is only available on weekdays.
The Hilton is offering both King and 2 Double Bed rooms for $179/night before taxes and fees. Click on this link to reserve your room or call 844-550-4634 to reserve your room under the Longpoint block.
