Getting to Washington, D.C.
Air: The Washington, D.C. metropolitan area is served by three major airports: Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA), Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD), and Baltimore/Washington International Airport (BWI). All three offer a variety of transportation options.
Washington National (DCA) is the most conveniently located, and a Metro station (yellow/blue lines) is located at the airport. Taxi service to the hotel is approximately $45-55 each way.
From Dulles, the Washington Flyer offers shuttles to/from a nearby Metro station for $18 round trip, and SuperShuttle offers transportation directly to the conference hotel for approximately $30 each way. Taxi fare to the hotel is approximately $65 each way.
From BWI, Amtrak rail service connects travelers to the Washington, DC metro system for about $15 each way. Taxi fare to the conference hotel is approximately $55 each way, and SuperShuttle offers transportation directly to the hotel for $37 each way.
Because the conference hotel is centrally located in downtown Bethesda above a Metro station and with many restaurants, bars and services within walking distance, you probably do not need to rent a car. However, garage parking is available at the hotel for $15-20 per day for hotel guests.
