When you fly into Washington, D.C., for a stay at Willard InterContinental, you will arrive at one of three airports: Reagan National Airport, Dulles International Airport or Baltimore/Washington International Airport.
If you fly into Reagan — about a 15-minute drive — exit from the airport onto George Washington (GW) Parkway toward Washington. Take the GW Parkway to I-395 North, which will bring you across the 14th Street Bridge into Washington. Stay in the left lane on the bridge and follow the signs for US Route 1 (straight ahead) to 14th Street. Follow 14th Street past the Washington Monument and at Pennsylvania Avenue, turn left and the hotel is on your right.
For the 45-minute ride from Dulles, follow I-66 across the Potomac River via the Roosevelt Bridge. As you cross the bridge, stay in the center lane, which becomes Constitution Avenue. Follow Constitution Avenue for about eight blocks, turn left onto 15th Street and continue to F Street. Then, turn right onto F Street and make a right at the next corner onto 14th Street. Turn right again at the next corner onto Pennsylvania Avenue and the hotel will be on your right.
To take the 45-minute drive from BWI airport, follow I-95 South to the Washington Metropolitan area and exit at I-495 West (the Capitol Beltway) toward Silver Spring. Proceed to exit 33, Connecticut Avenue (Route 185), and at the stoplight at the end of the off-ramp, turn left and follow Connecticut Avenue for about seven miles. Then, turn left onto H Street, follow it to 14th Street and turn right. Drive to the third traffic light — Pennsylvania Avenue — and the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel is on your right.
