For those of you who are traveling from out-of-town, we are so grateful that you are making the trip to DC for our wedding celebration!

 

Ronald Reagan (DCA)

DCA is located closest to Washington DC, is Metro-accessible and very close to one of our recommended hotels, the Gateway Marriott.  For domestic visitors, this airport will likely be the most convenient.

Dulles (IAD)

Located about an hour outside of Washington, Dulles is a major international hub and services carriers from around the world. You can plan for a taxi to get to either hotel: (30 minutes to Gateway Marriott, 20 minutes to Courtyard Manassas) or access the SilverLine  Express Bus to the Metro ($5) 

Baltimore-Washington International Marshall (BWI)

About an hour from Washington DC, BWI offers free shuttle service to the MARC/Amtrak station which you can use to get into the city/Union Station. You can also plan for a taxi (an hour to the Gateway Marriott, 1 hour/15 minutes to Courtyard Manasses). 

Generally, if you decide to stay at the Crystal Gateway Marriott (or anywhere in the city) plan to fly into Ronald Reagan Airport/DCA. 

If you decide to stay at the Courtyard Manasses, best to fly into Dulles--you'll be a 20 minute cab ride away.
