The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory must comply with government regulations pertaining to lodging per diem limits. For visitors traveling in connection with Laboratory business, we recommend that you request the APL rate when making your reservation at one of the hotel properties listed above. If your reservation is being made through a hotel chain's 800 service, that service might not recognize the special APL rate. Therefore, make sure to advise the hotel front desk at check-in that your stay is related to your APL visit so that the hotel will honor the special rate.
