Getting Around D.C.
From Union Station, National Airport, or downtown Washington, Washington's Metro subway trains run Mon. to Thurs. 5 am to midnight; Fri. from 5 am to 3 am; Sat. from 7am to 3am and Sun. 7 am to midnight. The closest Metro stop to The Sheraton Premiere Hotel is West Falls Church Metro.
To ride the Metro, buy a computerized fare card from the self-service machines inside the station entrance. The fare is determined by peak or off-peak timing and increases for longer distances. There is also a fare surcharge of $1.00 for paper fare cards, so if you intend to use the metro often during your stay, you can choose to pay $5.00 to purchase the surcharge free SmarTrip card or pay $14.00 for a one-day pass.
For detailed subway maps and more fare info visit: www.wmata.com
Please note: You must use the fare card to enter and exit station turnstiles. Upon exit, the turnstile deducts the fare and returns the card.
The Sheraton Premiere Hotel has its own bus shuttle to drive guests to places within Tysons Corner.

While there are many to pick and choose from, three of D.C.'s most popular taxi options are: Yellow Cab (202) 546-7900, V.I.P Cab (202-269-9000), and Diamond Cab (202) 387-6200. Fairfax Yellow Cab (703-534-1111) is also great for Tysons Corner, VA.
Please Note: The fare structure works on a complicated zone system rather than by the traditional metered system. DC consists of eight concentric zones (zone maps are posted in taxis), and rates are determined by how many zones you cross, the number of passengers, time of day and additional services (for example there is a $1 rush-hour surcharge, a $1.50 charge for crossing zones and possible charge for number of bags ). For an estimate of how much your taxi could cost you could choose to try the handy taxi fare finder.
