Shuttle transportation: MITH is pleased to provide a Shuttle Bus from the University of Maryland’s Marriott Inn and Conference Center (3501 University Blvd E, Hyattsville, MD 20783). Please meet in the lobby entrance of the hotel no later than 4:35 pm. The shuttle will leave promptly at 4:45 pm and is unable to wait for tardy guests. It is a 45 minute drive to the reception. The shuttle will return you to the hotel at the close of the embassy event.
Public Transit: The nearest public metro station is Dupont Circle. From Dupont Circle, head Northwest on Massachusetts Avenue roughly 1.1 miles. After you pass the Islamic Center (on the right) and cross the bridge over Rock Creek Park, take the first RIGHT onto Rock Creek Dr., NW. Take the second LEFT onto Edgevale Terrace, NW, to 2934 Edgevale Terrance. We recommend taking a cab from the metro station to the embassy event.
Public Parking: Public parking is available on the streets around the Residence. However, streets are narrow and difficult to navigate. We recommend either taking the shuttle or using public transit.
