Hotels:  Do not choose a nearby hotel at random.  Many of the hotels
along Route 1 are not acceptable places.  A very nice hotel is the
nearby Marriott:

   The Inn and Conference Center at University of Maryland
   3501 University Boulevard
   Adelphi, Maryland 20783

A decent budget-conscious hotel is

   The Comfort Inn
   9020 Baltimore Avenue
   College Park, Maryland 20740

Airports: you can fly into Dulles (IAD), Reagan National (DCA) or
Baltimore Washington International (BWI).  The cheapest fares are
often at Dulles, but be warned that it is quite a long drive from
Dulles to Riverdale Park.  BWI is closest.

Directions from Dulles Airport to Riverdale Park

It is also possible to take the Metro directly from Reagan National to
the College Park stop on the Green Line, where someone could pick you
up.  If anyone cannot drive, I can likely find someone pick you up
from the Green Line or BWI.  Please contact me or Susan Hines to
coordinate that:
