Question: How do I get to DC?
Answer: If you are flying to D.C., we recommend flying into Ronald Regan Washington National Airport (DCA), which is the closest airport to the event and downtown DC attractions. Taking a taxi or rideshare (Uber/Lyft) is the best option for getting to the hotel. Taxi and rideshare rates vary, depending on the time of day. Washington Dulles (IAD) is another option, though, it is farther away. The hotel has valet parking available for $54 per night, which can be billed to your room at your expense.
