**National Harbor is a development located just outside of Washington, D.C. If you’re flying into Reagan National it’s about a 30 minute drive via Uber, taxi or rental to the Gaylord National.  From Dulles it could take close to an hour depending on traffic.  Note, public transportation to National Harbor from DC is limited to bus.  There is not a stop on the Metro subway system. For more information about local transportation options, visit the travel/hotel conference page here.
