Q & A : parking & mass transit
At 2020 O St., NW, we are convienently located near the Dupont Circle Metro -- South Exit -- and we offer valet parking for your convienence. In addition, we offer a variety of creative ways to arrive to your event in a style that matches your personality.
Q: What about parking at The Mansion?
All events must use our valet service. Parking charges depend on the time of day and how many guests are attending. This fee will be added to your invoice at the end of the evening, or charged directly to your guest(s), as determined in the contract.
Double-parking in front of the house, whether by private vehicles or limousines, is strictly prohibited. Should double-parking be observed, a member of the HHL staff will request that the driver move the vehicle immediately, and will request police assistance if necessary. For more information on parking, see the Access section of our member policies & procedures page.
Q: What about bus or van arrivals and departures?
No buses are allowed on O Street or 21st Street, per city regulations. ALL buses (vehicles that seat over 12 passengers) must discharge and pick up passengers at 20th and O Streets, which is four houses away—or the corner of Hopkins and P, which is six houses away. Mansion staff will meet your bus and walk guests here. Make sure you understand this rule, because a bus cannot even go down 21st Street or O Street without incurring a city fine! (We had a bar mitzvah recently where the bus stopped one block away, but the police would not permit the kids to make the short walk to The Mansion, delaying the start of the party 35 minutes!)
Please let us know in advance the number and types of buses you intend to use as well as the number of guests arriving by bus, so that The Mansion may assist you in making the proper arrangements and avoiding penalties.
Q: Is there another alternative to get to The Mansion?
A: Yes. We think the taxi system is better than renting a bus— and many times it is much more cost effective. In addition, people hate sitting in a bus waiting for other people to get on.
Q: Do many people use the Metro?
A: Yes! The Red Line stops at Dupont Circle (south exit) and is only one block from The Mansion.book an event
