Airport Transportation Information

Airport Transportation Options

There are three different airports that you may choose to fly into that service the DC Metro area: Reagan/ National, Baltimore, and Dulles. It is your responsibility to arrange transportation to and from the airport. We recommend that all participants fly into Reagan National (DCA) as it is the closest airport to the hotel. We recommend that a flight into the other airports needs to be at least $100 cheaper to justify flying into them as you will end up paying that cost in travel to and from the airport. When scheduling flights, note that our program registration will begin promptly at 4 PM and the first SLU 201 event begins at 5:30 PM.

When flying into Reagan National, you have a variety of options to get to the hotel:

  1. Metro: You can choose to take the Metro to the Hotel if you can manage this with your luggage. The hotel has lobby access to the Crystal City Metro stop.
  2. Taxi/Cab: The estimated fare for a taxi from Reagan National is $10.
  3. Boston Coach Shuttle: For eleven consecutive years, BostonCoach (a Fidelity Investments company) has been Student Leadership University's preferred ground transportation provider for its 201 program in Washington, D.C., safely and successfully transporting thousands of attendees! Again in 2013, BostonCoach will partner with SLU to provide non-stop shuttle service between Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) and the host hotel, the Marriott Crystal Gateway at a cost of $15.00 per person each way.

  4. Hotel Shuttle: The hotel has a complementary 12 passenger shuttle that runs every 20 minutes from 5:00 AM to 11:00 PM. Shuttle picks up at ground transporation. Look for the Crystal City Gateway Marriott shuttle. Because we have over 900 people coming in for SLU 201 (most of which are flying), the hotel can not guarantee transporation for all attendees in a timely manner so SLU recommends participants consider one of the first three options.



If you are flying into one of the other Washington DC area airports, Boston Coach will provided additional dedicated motor coach, minibus, van and sedan transfers at discounted fares.
