HAWDC proudly represents member hotels on a variety of governmental and public affairs issues.


The Hotel Association’s political action committee, H.O.T.E.L. (Hotel Organization to Elect Leaders) PAC was established over 33 years ago to help protect the interests of the hotel industry in the District of Columbia. Hotels in the District account for $207 million in tax collections to the District each year, with $1.9 billion spent on lodging annually in Washington D.C. H.O.T.E.L. seeks to support candidates who acknowledge the contributions of the hotel industry to the District.

For more information on how you can contribute to H.O.T.E.L., please contact Lisa Abrams at 202-289-4448.
