Taxis are plentiful and reasonably priced. DC taxicabs operate using a standard meter system. The follow rates went into effect on May 1, 2008:
The rate for time and distance meters includes a $3 drop rate and 25 cents for every one-sixth of a mile after the first sixth of a mile traveled.For every minute stopped in traffic or traveled under ten miles per hour, there will be a charge of 25 cents per minute.All other rates and surcharges, such as those for additional passengers and rush hour apply.The maximum fare for all trips within the District is $19.00.
By the end of 2012 all taxicabs must be able to accept debit and credit cards.By law, basic rates must be posted in each cab. Maryland and Virginia cabs have meters and can take you in or out of the city, but not point to point within the district.
The hotel's taxi stand is located at the front drive of the hotel. Taxis are available 24 hours. With advance notice, our Guest Service department can have any number of taxicabs available for large departures or arrivals of guests. Contact your Events Manager for further details.
