About the Memorial Service
The entrance to 501 I Street SW is now from 6th street, via the courtyard (see Google map). When you enter, you will find a reception desk in the former assembly room where you can get directions. The service will be in a large new room constructed above the gymnasium.
The formal part of the service will be November 15, 2008 from 1 to 2 PM, followed by refreshments and a reception lasting about three to four hours.
To get to 501 I St SW by public transportation, see the METRO Trip Planner. If you don't mind walking a few blocks then enter the SEU-Waterfront Station as your destination. From the station, walk east on M Street to 6th Street, then turn right and continue on 6th Street to Southeastern University (SEU), entering the building from 6th Street.
If you need to get as close as possible then enter 501 I St SW as your destination, and the Trip Planner will route you by bus to a stop a few hundred feet from SEU.
If you are driving to the memorial service, please park on-street or in public parking. SEU is having classes that day, so please do not park in their lots. There is plenty of on-street parking within three blocks of the school.
Doug suggests that "From the standpoint of both convenience and expense, my hunch is that the Reagan National Airport-Crystal City-Rosslyn Circle corridor is the best for hotels." You can check prices and make reservations at online services such as Travelocity and Orbitz.
