George Mason University’s desire to provide new ways to interact with prospective students, alumni, faculty/staff and the surrounding community was addressed by the development of The Mason Inn Conference Center and Hotel.

It can accommodate up to 1,682 attendees. Full-service dining facilities, structured/surface parking and all support services complete the design to meet the strict standards of the International Association of Conference Centers.

Designed to LEED silver standards, the inn offers daylight in all areas, wired and wireless access throughout, and an extensive AV/IT backbone to promote high-performance learning.

The Mason Inn also serves as an extension for the School of Management, which will be hosting MBA programs at the inn.

A key element of the success of The Mason Inn is the level of hospitality services provided. The service team has been an integral part of the development team, working side by side with the university and developer since conceptual design.
