Aloft Washington National Harbor
Transportation Options

Our name says it all—Aloft National Harbor—so our location’s kind of a no-brainer. Located in the new National Harbor community just south of downtown DC and the Capital Beltway (I-495), we’re most easily reached by car. Hop on the highway and you’ll be here in no time! Plus, wheels give you the flexibility to zip around to area attractions and the nation’s capital with ease. Once you arrive, we’ve got a handy indoor garage nearby—see our daily and nightly parking fees.

Directionally challenged? Check out our step-by-step driving directions from Reagan National Airport or the city center. For directions from elsewhere, just plug “156 Waterfront Street, National Harbor, Maryland” into your favorite online mapping resource.

If you prefer not to drive, a car’s not entirely necessary—just jump in a cab (or even a water taxi!). Once you’re here, our immediate area is great on foot. And if you’re heading into DC, we’ll call you a cab for the 20-minute ride. Other transport questions? Call the hotel or stop by the front desk and we’ll give you the full rundown.

If you are traveling by car, please see driving directions, from the airport or any other location.

        • If you’re flying in from afar, Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport just over the river is your best bet. Served by all the major domestic airlines, with frequent shuttle flights to and from New York and Boston, it’s a handy hub for arriving in the area. For a wider range of flight options, Dulles International Airport is just a bit further afield.

          Once you make it through baggage claim, driving's the simplest option. You’ll find all the major car rental companies at both airports, and getting here is a quick 15 minutes from Reagan National, about 45 minutes from Dulles. If you prefer not to drive, hop in a cab—the ride here from Reagan National will run you about $20-25.
