Transport alternatives from the 3 Washington area airports to
the Washington Hilton hotel.
FROM REAGAN AIRPORT:
As Brian states (below), a taxi or Metro makes sense from
Reagan airport because it is quite close to downtown DC, and
there is a Metro station at the airport.
- Taxi: about US$ 18.
- Metro (subway): $2 - $3 Walk 4 blocks from Metro to
hotel, see Brian's directions below.
- Supershuttle: $12 first person, $8 each additional person.
FROM DULLES AIRPORT:
Dulles is rather far out in Virginia, no rail or Metro.
- Direct taxi: $50.
- Supershuttle: $25 one person, $8 each additional person
going to same hotel.
- Cheapest: Washington Flyer Shuttle to Metro, take Metro,
transfer to second Metro, walk 4 blocks to hotel, $10-12.
From Dulles, SuperShuttle is the best compromise between price
and convenience. Small vans, run 24 hours, may stop at several
hotels before getting to yours.
SHARING SUPERSHUTTLE: To get the reduced rate, before you
board the SuperShuttle, check in with the Supershuttle
dispatcher in the bus area, say you are with the IETF and name
the hotel you are going to, the SuperShuttle people are nice
and will permit you to share at the $35 + $8 price.
At Dulles, directions to Supershuttle bus: Collect your
baggage and follow signs for ground transportation leading you
directly to the SuperShuttle boarding area located on lower
level, outside at curb 1D or 1E. There will be a uniformed
SuperShuttle dispatcher. After 12:00 midnight call
BWI - BALTIMORE-WASHINGTON AIRPORT:
Far from downtown DC.
- No Metro, there is a train station 1 mile from airport, but
- Supershuttle: $31 first person, $10 each additional to same
- Taxi: About $63.
SuperShuttle will stop at many but not all DC hotels. You can
inquire at http://www.supershuttle.com/htm/cities/dca.htm or
+1 202 296-6662 or 800-258-3826.

If you are flying into National there is a metro stop directly at the
Airport you take the Blue line to Mertro Center and go upstairs to catch
the Red line... If you are coming into Dulles ... sorry its $45.00 minimum
we've been trying to get it out there for the last 10 years..
$45? Nah, only if you take a cab. If you are coming into Dulles, you take
the Washington Flyer shuttle ($8) to the West Falls Church Metro station.
That's the orange line, which you take to Metro center and change to the red
line to Dupont Circle. The metro ride from West Falls Church to Dupont
Circle will cost you $1.85 off peak, $2.70 peak.
Another alternative is SuperShuttle, which is around $24 or so.
