How far is the closest metro? Does the hotel run a shuttle to the metro? How long is the metro ride into DC mall area? Is there a better way to get to Dc? Planning to fly into BWI
From this property, we drove approx. 15 minutes to the Greenbelt Metro station. From there, 25-30 train ride to the D.C. mall. If you are traveling alone, it's a good plan. If you are with a family, I would rather drive into the city and park in a discounted garage. You pay around $6 parking at Greenbelt; the lot is huge so the walk is very long. Then you pay the Metro fare. For the sake of time and aggravation, better to park in the city if you are not alone. Either way, BWI is fine. You will save money on the suburban MD hotels.
