Guest information

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Washington, D.C. for our wedding weekend. Assuming the weather holds up (and you never know with an El Nino year, so fingers crossed!), we’ll have a wonderful spring wedding.


HOTELS

For those guests coming in from out of town, we have reserved room blocks at two hotels. Both properties are located about a mile from the ceremony location at Spanish Steps in Dupont Circle/Kalorama, though the Double Tree is a bit closer to the reception at Cork than the Marriott. We recommend both hotels, so whichever works best for you points-wise will be a good decision.

Marriott Wardman Park
2660 Woodley Road NW
Washington, D.C. 20008

Room Block Details
Rate: $159/night (plus taxes and parking)

– select “Attendee” as the guest type and follow the prompts to complete your booking.

The Marriott is located across the street from the Woodley Park-Zoo stop on the Red Line, and both MetroBus and the Circulator Bus have nearby stops. The National Zoo is a short (uphill) walk away, and there are several restaurants within two blocks of the hotel.


DoubleTree Hilton

1515 Rhode Island Ave NW
Washington, D.C. 20005

There isn’t a Metro stop nearby, but the Farragut North and Dupont Circle stops on the Red Line and McPherson Square on the Orange/Blue/Silver Lines are about a 15-20 minute walk from the hotel. MetroBus is located nearby. The hotel is two blocks from 14th Street, which is popular in DC’s restaurant scene.

 

TRANSPORTATION

D.C. is serviced by the Dulles International Airport (IAD), the Reagan International Airport (DCA) and the Baltimore International Airport (BWI). Of the three, we strongly suggest flying into Reagan National. It’s right by the Metro (both the Blue and Yellow Lines have a DCA stop) and assuming no Metro delays, it’s about a 25-minute ride into downtown, D.C.

If you want to fly into Dulles and don’t plan to rent a car, we suggest either taking a Washington Flyer taxi or take the Washington Flyer Silver Shuttle to the Wiehle Avenue stop on the Silver Line. From there, it’s about a 45-minute ride into downtown, D.C.

If you choose to fly into Baltimore and don’t plan to rent a car, you can take the Metro Express Line from BWI to the Greenbelt Metro stop on the Green line. From there, it’s about a 25-30 minute ride into downtown, D.C.

Yes, the Metro did shut down for a day and there are often delays but you can still get wherever you want to go with our subway system. Metro system details can be found at http://wmata.com/.

Uber and Lyft are huge here. Or you also can rent a car, just be mindful of zoned parking spots. If you are driving, you’ll also need to factor in extra time on the day of the wedding to find parking.
