Washington DC Hotels

As you come into town for your assessment, the job fair and interviews, here are a few helpful hints for staying in and getting around our Nation's Capital.

How to get around

In the city: Use Metro

Coming by air: There are three major airports in the Washington DC area. Reagan National Airport is accessible by Metro (rail). Dulles is accessible by Metro bus (route 5A) and BWI is accessible by Metro bus service from the Greenbelt Metro Station in Maryland. Information on shuttle and taxi services at each airport as well as additional details are available on their websites:

Ronald Reagan National Airport (DCA)

Dulles International Airport (IAD)

Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport (BWI)

Coming by train: Amtrak services downtown DC via Union Station.

Coming on the cheap: There are several Chinatown Bus services that run from New York City and Boston, plus a few other major eastern cities and spots in between. Round-trip fare from NYC is about $35.

Getting to the Forest Service

The Forest Service is located in the Sidney Yates federal building, on the corner of 14th St SW and Independence Ave SW. It is easily accessible by the Smithsonian Metro Station on the Blue and Orange lines. Please bring a photo ID for entrance into the building. We will provide an escort.

Here is a map of our location with the Metro highlighted as well as places to lock your bike if you are so inclined. To use the Yates Building bike locker, you will have to coordinate with someone to get you access.
