What's the best way to get here from Dulles airport?
the hotel does not provide shuttle service. the way would be to take a taxi (around $80) or Super shuttle.
It really depends on the time of day and the vast roadwork that were ongoing. We flew in to Dulles around 4pm and it took nearly 90 minutes to get there by cab. It would have been much faster to take the Metro. There is a stop 2 minutes walk from the hotel.
I'm so sorry, I flew in via Reagan, not Dulles. I know there's a shuttle from Dulles that heads to Dupont Circle but there are a lot of stops. I'm sorry I can't offer a real answer. But enjoy the visit!
If you want the most economical way, you can take the Metro, but you will have to take a bus, cab or Uber to the Wiehle-Reston Silver line station (about 10-15 minutes or so from the airport.) Take the Silver Line to Metro Center and transfer to the Red Line to Shady Grove. You will get off at Dupont Circle North and you will be only a block away from the hotel. It will probably take you about an hour.
You may consider the Super Shuttle from the airport all the way to the hotel. Less time for sure and it will be a flat rate (unlike a cab stuck in traffic.) You will have to book it in advance.
My advice is to contact the concierge at the Dupont Circle hotel.
The concierge will be able to provide you with the best transportation options from Dulles to the hotel.
I don't use a lot of mass transit, so I am not the best person to answer this....I took a cab and the fare, with tip was around $45......I do know that some people use Uber, and I also know that some people take the Subway, as there is a subway station near there.
