Our next meeting is scheduled for 2 PM, Sunday, January 15 (tomorrow) in the back of the restaurant of the Washington Plaza Hotel, 10 Thomas Circle NW, Washington, DC. The hotel entrance is on Vermont Avenue on the northeast side of Thomas Circle. Thomas Circle is the intersection of Massachusetts Avenue, 14th Street, Vermont Avenue, and M Street in NW Washington.
Here is a picture of the front of the hotel taken from Thomas Circle. The restaurant is on the ground floor on the right side of the picture.https://cls.cdn-hotels.com/hotels/1000000/50000/40600/40512/40512_15_b.jpg
On Sundays there is usually, but not always, ample free street parking within 3 blocks of the hotel. A couple of times I have parked five or 6 blocks from the hotel, but always for free.
There is guest parking in the hotel garage, but that option is fairly pricey.
If you are coming from the suburbs, you may want to take Metro; it's a short walk from any line.
Blue/Orange Lines to McPherson Square. Take the 14th Street exit and go left (north, Franklin Square on your right) on 14th three blocks to Thomas Circle.
Red Line to Farragut North. Take the L Street exit and go left (east, Farragut Square on your right) four blocks on L to Vermont Avenue, then left two blocks on Vermont to Thomas Circle.
Green/Yellow Line to Mt. Vernon Square/Convention Center. The exit is at 7th and M; go left (west, Convention Center on your left) six blocks on M Street to Thomas Circle.
Green Line from Greenbelt to U Street/African-American Civil War Memorial/Cardozo. Take the 13th Street exit, go left (west) on U to 13th, go left (south) five blocks on 13th to Logan Circle, then to the right almost half way around the circle to Vermont Avenue, then two blocks on Vermont to Thomas Circle.
