Directions from Washington Airports
From Ronald Raegan Airport (DCA): Our house is located 6 miles (9.66 km) from the DCA airport. We recommend taking the metro or an Uber. If you come by metro, take the yellow line to the Shaw/Howard University metro station. We are 8 stops away, it takes roughly 20 minutes on the metro, and it costs approximately $3 dollars. You can also order an Uber. It will cost around $15 dollars and takes about 15-25 minutes depending on traffic. Taxi are also available at the airport at a cost around $25 dollars. During rush hour, the metro is typically the fastest route.
From Dulles Airport:The Dulles airport is approximately 30 miles outside Washington, DC. The trip generally takes 45 minutes to 1 hour by car and 1.5 hours by metro to travel into the city. To take the metro, look for signs that say shuttle bus. The shuttle will take you to the Wiehle-Reston East metro stop at the end of the silver line. Take the metro to L’Efant Plaza, transfer to the yellow or green line, and get off at the Shaw-Howard University metro. The shuttle and metro ride are each about $5. Uber will cost about $40 dollars and a taxi will cost about $70 dollars.
From BWI: BWI is located outside Baltimore. The easiest route to Washington, DC from BWI is to take the free shuttle to the train station (5 minute ride). We recommend taking the MARC train (about $7, 45 minutes), but Amtrak is also an option (usually $17-$30, 30 minutes). You can also take an Uber for around $40 and a taxi for around $70.
From Union Station (Train or Bus Station): We’re located 1.6 miles from Union Station. With two people, uber is usually cheaper and faster than the metro (about $5-$7). A taxi stand is also available outside the station, but costs about $10-$12. The metro is also a great option and there are signs inside the station providing guidance to the metro entrance. Take the red line to Gallery Place/Chinatown, transfer to the Yellow or Green line, and exit at the Shaw/Howard University Metro Station.
We have five parking spots at the end of the block. When you arrive, pull over anywhere out front and ring the door bell - and we will come out and show you the parking spots. The cost of parking is included in your stay.
