Traveling to Washington, DC

If you are not local to the DC area, please plan to arrive with enough time to attend lunch at 12:00 PM, followed by the highly important training at 1:00 PM on Monday, May 5th.

If you will be departing on Tuesday evening, we ask that you book your return flight for 6:30 PM or later if you are flying out of Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA), or 7:30 PM or later if you are flying out of Dulles International Airport (IAD) and Baltimore Washington Airport (BWI). This should allow you enough time to attend all of the meetings scheduled for you, including those scheduled in the late afternoon.

Getting to the hotel
Participants are responsible for making their own transportation arrangements to and from the hotel. National Brain Tumor Society cannot reimburse travel, hotel accommodations, or parking expenses for participants. 

Taxis from Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) to The Embassy Row Hotel will cost approximately $20-$25 one way (plus tip) and the trip will take from 20 to 30 minutes, depending upon traffic.

There is also a Metro stop at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA). To take the Metro to the hotel: Take the blue line to Metro Center then switch trains to the Red Line.  From the Red Line get off on the DuPont Circle stop.  The hotel is located less than one block from the metro stop.  A day pass for the metro is $14.00, one way Metro fares to the hotel vary depending on the time of day and range from $2.50-$4.  Additional metro fare information can be found on http://www.wmata.com/fares/metrorail.cfm .

Parking at The Embassy Row Hotel 
The hotel parking charges during Head to the Hill are: 

  • $18 plus tax daily parking for those not staying overnight 
  • $35 including tax for overnight parking 


Both options are flat fees so guests can come and go as many times within
the day at those rates. The hotel only offers Valet Parking. The garage is
right below the hotel and only the Valet attendants are authorized to enter
and exit the garage.

Getting to Capitol Hill
On Tuesday morning, May 6, all Head to the Hill participants will meet at the Embassy Row Hotel for a send-off breakfast. It is important to attend this breakfast as last minute schedule changes and other critical information will be provided. After breakfast, we will travel as a group to Capitol Hill.
