Hotel was very nice. Enjoyed little touches like providing a few paperback books to take one for reading if desired. The bathroom, especially the tub, was luxurious. Location was quiet as it was further away from main tourist areas although easy walk to many.

Everything about this place is fantastic. The building is beautiful, spacious, and well-appointed. The grounds are extremely attractive. The views are wonderful. It's easy to walk to the Wharf for food and entertainment. It's easy to walk around the Tidal Basin to see the MLK,

What is the closest metro the Intercontinental hotel at the wharf
Dear 656tammyr, We are located about equidistant to two Metro stations. L'Enfant Plaza is three blocks east of the Hotel and a major stop on the system served by the Yellow, Green, Blue, Orange, and Silver Lines. This is the stop to use if you are coming or going to Ronald Reagan International Airport. Smithsonian is three blocks north of the hotel served by the Red, Blue, Orange, and Silver lines. I hope this helps. Kind regards, Mandarin Oriental, Washington DC

Dear Avian33, Many of our fans have already answered your question, but I still hope you will indulge one more. MO is located only about 15 minutes from Ronald Reagan International Airport. We are actually the closest hotel in the District of Columbia to DCA. Taxi cabs are abundant at DCA and fares will cost you less than USD 20. Uber and Lyft are also popular and easy options. Metrorail is another quick and easy option and the L'Enfant Plaza station is four stops from the airport on the Greenbelt-bound Yellow line. However, it is a bit of a walk from the Metro to the hotel so I don't necessarily recommend it if you have a lot of luggage. Alternately, you may contact our concierge and arrange for a private sedan transfer. The driver will meet you at baggage claim and personally escort you to the waiting car and assist with luggage. Please feel free to call our concierge colleagues at (202) 554-8588. Kind regards, Dave Walsh Director of Sales and Marketing

Are there nearby coffee shops.
As several of our guests have already mentioned, there is a Starbucks right on the circle and just steps away. Coming this spring, Blue Bottle Coffee will be opening its first location in DC at the Wharf and guests will be just minutes from experiencing their very freshly roasted beans and hand-prepared pour-over coffees.
