This page is provided by the hotel as a general travel guide. The hotel does not provide shuttle service. However, check out these travel tips to find the best transportation option for you! You have three airport options: BWI, DCA, and IAD.

Travel Tips: The venue is very close to the metro (about a 3 minute walk) from the White Flint stop. Go here for all the information on public transit. The easiest airport to fly into is DCA if you don't want to rent a car, or IAD or BWI if you intend to rent a car.

BWI Airport

Getting from the Baltimore airport (BWI) requires either renting a car or making several connections. Amtrak can take you into Washington DC's Union Station where you can switch to the metro and head to the White Flint Metro station on the red line. The metro is a 3 minute walk from the venue.

DCA Airport

The Washington-Reagan (DCA) airport is the easiest to fly into in order to reach the venue. DCA has a metro stop right at the airport. Take the metro to the White Flint Metro station on the red line.

IAD Airport

Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) can be convenient depending on the time of the day or if you are renting a car or taking a shuttle / Uber or Lyft. It is possible to take a bus /shuttle/Uber/Lyft to the metro and take the subway, or you can ride to the venue by renting a car.


Trains come into Washington DC's Union Station where you can transfer to the metro and head to the White Flint Metro station which is on the red line. 
If you are driving to the venue, be aware of traffic. Washington DC is like a clock, and the venue is at 10 o'clock. Traffic heading into the city is heavy from 7am -9am, and leaving between 2:30pm - 6:30pm. Traffic can be heavy on 270 at these times. If you take the ICC (route 200) to avoid traffic note that you must have an EZPASS or you will be billed for your tolls with an administrative charge.
