Hotel Shuttle
The hotel offers a free shuttle service to and from Ronald Reagan International Airport and Pentagon City Metro station. The shuttle runs every hour and half hour from 6 a.m. – 10:30 p.m. daily. The shuttle picks up airport passengers at the old terminal at the kiosk that reads Hotel Shuttle(s). The shuttle then goes on to outside baggage claim at the main terminal at gates 5 and 9.

Please note the shuttle picks passengers up at the main entrance to the hotel, located on the upper lobby level. If you have any further questions, please see the bell stand located in the upper lobby.

One of the easiest ways to get around town is by using the area’s subway system commonly known as the Metro. Maps and trip planning information are available on their website. The nearest Metro line to the Doubletree Hotel is the Yellow Line, accessible from the Pentagon City station or the Crystal City station.

Dash is the bus service for the City of Alexandria. Dash buses connect with the Metro and all local bus services. It runs from 7 a.m. – 7 p.m.
