Air service:

The Washington area has three airports:

Reagan National Airport (DCA), just across the river from central Washington, is about a 20 minute drive from the hotel; cab fare is estimated at $30 each way, while a two-train Metro ride will take about 30 minutes and cost under $4.

Dulles Airport (IAD), about thirty miles west in Sterling, Virginia, is about a 40-minute drive; expect cab fare to approach $60 each way. There is not yet train service to this airport, but a $5 shuttle runs every 15-20 minutes to the Wiehle-Reston East station on the Silver Line; from there, it's about a 50-minute trip on Metro's Silver and Red lines to Woodley Park, costing approximately $6.   

Baltimore/Washington Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI), is about 35 miles northeast of the hotel; cab fare can be nearly $90, though depending on when you arrive it may be possible to take Amtrak or MARC train service direct to Union Station from the airport for less than $20--schedules for both are available in Google Maps.
