Airports / Ground Transportation


We can’t tell you what your airfare will cost, but there are three major airports within a reasonable distance of downtown Washington. National Airport (DCA) is certainly the closest and provides Metro access.


You may consider flying into Dulles International (IAD) or Baltimore Washington International (BWI) to get a better rate. Just remember to factor in transportation costs, as BWI and IAD are each about 30 miles from Washington, so local transportation will cost more than flying into DCA.






Fragrance Free Policy


Fragrance and chemicals can be access barriers. To help make this Conference accessible to participants for whom chemicals or fragrances are an access barrier, NCIL requests that you come fragrance free. Please refrain from wearing any scented products or washing with them. This includes clothing that has been laundered with fragranced detergent or fabric softening products. Additionally, please completely air out any dry-cleaned clothing before wearing it to the Conference.


Smoke can also be an access barrier. It is essential that we maintain a smoke-free environment. If you smoke, please use the designated smoking area located outside the Hyatt. Please refrain from smoking near any other doorways or paths of travel. The hotel entrance at 11th Street should be the least polluted with cigarette smoke and vehicle exhaust, although it unfortunately has steps.
