If you want door-to-door from the airport to your hotel, take a taxi. Easiest with luggage and not knowing the area. Or take the 5A bus to Roslyn, then get on Metro Blue Line to Van Dorn Station.

You can take the 5A bus to Rosslyn and then the Blue Line in the direction of Franconia-Springfield to Van Dorn. You can check www.wmata.com for any weekend track work, service changes which might make that not possible.

You can also take the Washington Flyer bus to the Wiehle Avenue-Reston East silver line Metro station. Take the train to Rosslyn. At Rosslyn, transfer to the blue line.

Check out the right hand side of this forum page. There you will find "Top Questions about Washington DC". A "top question" addresses transportation options to and from the airports.
