Getting Around D.C.

Traveling around the nation’s capital is easy and we highly recommend using Google Maps to plan your travel options. Located just four blocks from the U.S. Capitol, our host hotel – AC Hotel Marriott Capitol Hill Navy Yard – is easily accessible by several modes of transportation:

By Metro: The Navy Yard-Ballpark Station on the Green Line or the Capitol South Station on the Orange, Blue and Silver Lines are the closest Metro stations to the AC Hotel. DCA and IAD airports are both served by the Washington Area Metro system, and we recommend using the train for transportation while staying in D.C. and traveling back from Capitol Hill using the Capitol South station.

By Car: Uber, Lyft, and taxis are widely available in D.C.

Recommended Attire

For Wednesday, October 18th: Business casual for in-person training and Welcome to D.C. reception.
