Monday and Tuesday’s Elders Climate Action Day will be held at American University Washington College of Law at 4300 Nebraska Avenue, NW. It is a 5 minute walk from the Tenleytown–AU Metro Station on the Red Line, which offers a direct connection to Union Station and nearby Capitol Hill where we will be on Wednesday. Any lodging close to a metro station on the W/NW extension of the Red Line will provide easy access to ECAD activities. These include the Cleveland Park, Woodley Park, Dupont Circle, and Farragut North metro stations.
American University provides a listing of hotels and three hostels in the surrounding area. Some provide a discount if you mention AU. From Tenleytown-AU metro station to Union Station is about a 20 minute ride, and a round-trip ticket is under $5.
*Note that there will be an added 14.5% hotel tax to any quoted price.
