Metro: The closest Metro is Woodley Park/Zoo on the Red Line. Catch the 98 U Street/Woodley Park Metro Loop bus.  RideGuide suggests the 42 Mt. Pleasant bus from Farragut West Metro station for those near the Orange Line.  For those driving, the Colonial Parking deck is located across the street for $8.
