#GrowSmartBiz Conference : Parking and Metro tips

Some tips if you are coming to the GrowSmartBiz Conference on Tuesday, September 29th in Washington DC a educational and networking conference for small businesses hosted by Network Solutions. A couple of people asked about Metro and parking. Renaissance  has Valet parking if you want to use it . I  recommend using the Metro.
Subway/Metro : Gallery Place Chinatown (.2 miles S )
Directions from Metro :
1.Head north on 7th St NW toward H St NW
2.Turn left at H St NW
3.Turn right at 9th St NW ( hotel will be on the right )

Parking Choice :
City Center Parking Lot
900 9th Street, NW (between N I St & N K St)
Washington, DC 20001
(202) 265-0010

999 9th St NW Washington, DC 2000 ( Entrance on I Street) $15 for 9 hour
This is a paid parking garage underneath the building. There are two entrances: one on I (Eye) Street and one on 7th Street. Both entrances identify the garage as “Park Tech.” Wind down the entrance and take a ticket at the cashier booth. Turn left and proceed to Level 2, 3 or 4. Level 1 is reserved parking.

Disclaimer: I researched these on the internet and please take it as advice with no guarantees :) Hope to see you there

From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night.
