DC Metro Area Map

    Washington is served by three airports. The closest airport is Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), which handles domestic flights and is on the Metrorail subway system.

     For international flights, Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI) is 40 minutes away, while Dulles International Airport (IAD) is listed as being 35 minutes (but Dulles is across town from our hotel, so traffic can be a factor).

      Both airports are served by shuttle buses, taxi cabs, and limousine service into Washington.  BWI Airport is also connected to Washington by Amtrak and Maryland MARC Commuter trains, which stop at Union Station, three blocks away from the hotel.

 

     Metrorail and Metrobus are the mainstays of DC's premier transportation system comprising 64 rail stations and over 350 bus routes.  Metrorail stations are modern and well-laid out with quiet and comfortable cars.  This safe system has its own police force and employs closed-circuit TV cameras to monitor station areas continuously.

     Amtrak, MARC, and Virginia Railroad Express (VRE) trains connect passengers from Union Station with the outer Virginia and Maryland suburbs and Baltimore-Washington International Airport.  The DC Greyhound Bus Terminal is located at 1005 1st Street NE, just a few blocks from our hotel and Union Station. There are also some 10,000 taxi cabs in service.
