Washington DC Hotel Shuttles
IAD airport hotel transfers
As the shimmering capital of America, Washington DC is a metropolis steeped in struggles for power, from political theater to an ever-growing private sector. Get a surface overview of the city’s many historic landmarks with a ride that ensures good times, whether it be the intimacy of a private vehicle ranging from quaint sedans to super-sized chartered buses, or a vast array of meet-and-greet services that include cozy taxis and luxury stretched limousines ideal for reaching busy locations such as the distant Dulles International Airport. During DC’s infamous rush hour, tourists are encouraged to utilize the Metro, a partially underground train system that offers various drop offs to popular areas like Dupont Circle, Penn Quarter and Woodley Park - key advice: stand to the right of the escalator if you’re standing, left if you’re walking.
Once transportation is all taken care of, look toward booking the right hotel next - especially popular neighborhoods include Dupont Circle and Logan Circle due to their fast access to roundabouts and cool networking bars, so whether it’s the upscale but modest lodging of The Dupont Circle Hotel or ritzy pool-centric ambiance of Washington Plaza Hotel, there’s plenty of options. Those looking to stay especially close to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center should book at the connected Marriott Marquis for ultimate convenience, while those wanting to immerse themselves in the stately and historic Penn Quarter can choose from the mod-chic minimalism of Pod DC Hotel or refined stoicism of Grand Hyatt Washington. And of course, quiet stays await on the outskirts, from Georgetown Inn’s close quarters to busy college culture to Woodley Park’s Omni Shoreham Hotel and its quick access to the Smithsonian National Zoo.
A city renowned for its recognizable landmarks featured throughout pop culture, finding the familiar is as easy as staying close to The National Mall and its connected Lincoln Reflection Pool, an especially popular time to go on a walk being sunset due to the all-concrete “park’s” blaring sunlight. For some indoor fun, explore The National Mall’s many Smithsonian exhibits that make DC the museum capital of the world, or walk within the striking gothic architecture of the Washington National Cathedral. Especially cool underrated neighborhoods include Navy Yard, home to fun seafood restaurants along the Anacostia River as well as major league baseball games at Nationals Park, while Georgetown offers vast historic homes and instant access to lush greenbelts that flow into Woodley Park. With too many awesome restaurants to count, guests should at least stick to the most popular, from landmark oysters at 15th Street’s Old Ebbitt Grill to amazing locally grown American at Founding Farmers DC.
