Transportation

There is no need to have a car. There are many restaurant options within a few blocks of the hotel.

PARKING OPTIONS: If you do drive a car, there is on street meter parking with a two hour limit on Saturday. You can park on the street all day on Sunday (no time limit). PMI Parking Garage is open after 5 pm Friday and all day on the weekend (2300 M St NW, beneath Westin - you access garage by going down 24th St NW). Squash On Fire validates for three hours at a cost of $10.

AIRPORT AND AMTRAK OPTIONS:

You can fly into the DC area via the three regional airports -- Washington Reagan, Washington Dulles and Baltimore Washington (BWI) Airports. Amtrak provides two trains per hour from New York and Boston into Union Station, which is 20 minutes via public transportation to the Squash on Fire venue.

United has many nonstops into Dulles, while American provides many nonstops into Reagan and Southwest provides many nonstops into Baltimore Washington Airport. There are Amtrak and low cost MARC commuter trains (see the info for the "Penn" line) from BWI to Washington DC. Reagan Airport is most convenient to the venues. Reagan is the easiest to use if you plan on using public transportation to get to and from the airport and would have the cheapest cab fares to all the venues.

Southwest Airlines now flies in to Reagan and has a major hub at BWI, which normally has the lowest fares of the three airports.

Estimated times using public transportation from each airport (not counting waiting time for departing trains and buses, but counting walking time to Squash on Fire):

Reagan -- 20-25 minutes

Dulles -- 1 hour

BWI -- 1 hour 15 minutes to 1 hour 45 minutes

Estimated Uber fares and time for Uber X, assuming no surge pricing and travel during off peak hours:

Reagan -- $17-$22, 12-20 minutes.

Dulles -- $40-$50, 30-45 minutes.

BWI -- $50-$60, 45-60 minutes.

Taxis are more expensive, but each airport has plentiful taxi service.

Using public transit to get to the courts:

Reagan: This link explains.

Dulles: This link explains.

BWI: This link explains. Your cheapest fare will be using the MARC train or WMATA Express Bus options. The fastest option is the Amtrak train, assuming you don't have to wait for it.

Dining:

The most convenient place to eat near the main Squash on Fire venue is the Upper West Side Cafe, located inside the facility. The food is excellent! It's a full-service menu for breakfast, lunch, through to dinner and is designed to be fresh and healthy.
