20 F Street Conference Center Parking Information

There is a garage below the 20 F Street Conference Center in the building, but most of the parking spaces are taken up by tenants. There are a limited number of spots allowed for day parking, but they are on a first come first serve basis.  You can check when you arrive to see if any are available.  If so, the rate is $8.00 for an hour or $15.00 for the day. The garage is located off of E Street around the corner from the front entrance on F Street. To get there, pass the front door and make a right onto N. Capital Street and then a right onto E Street. There is an alleyway on the right after the Hotel George. Turn into it go until it dead ends and the parking garage is on the right.
If no parking is available at the Conference Center, the closest parking  garage is at 500 North Capitol Street. It is located right next to the Phoenix Park Hotel around the corner from the 20 F Street Conference Center.

For Metro, the closet is Union Station. Below is a map to help show how to get here but when exiting Union Station, go right out the main door, cross over 1st street, take Massachusetts crossing over  North Capitol and then turn left onto F Street. You will see the Irish Times Restaurant and the 20 F Street Conference Center is right next to it.
For those cabbing please ask for 20 F Street, NW by Union Station. There have been problems with cab drivers taking people to 20 & F street which is on the other side of town.
