HOIST is easily accessible by both private and public transportation from anywhere in the Washington DC metro area. Our address is:
Fairfax VA 22031
Nestled between the Dunn Loring Metro and the Mosaic District, we are near suppliers, countless restaurants and retailers, hotels, parks, a lake, and even a hospital... and only minutes from Tyson's Corner, Falls Church, Vienna, Arlington, Fairfax City, and Annandale. Our resources section has more information.
Travel by Automobile
We are very close to both I-495 and I-66, and have plenty of free parking in our adjacent lot.
Travel by Metrorail and Metrobus
We are about 3 blocks (an easy walk) south of the Dunn Loring Metrorail Station on the Orange Line. Travel information about both Metrorail and Metrobus can be found on the WMATA website.
If you are traveling from out of town, HOIST is ideally located. We're so well positioned that you could fly (or take a train) into Washington DC and once there, get to HOIST, equipment rental, your hotel, and numerous restaurants for less than $5 and without renting a car. We are easily accessible by all major forms of transportation, an easy 17 mile drive from Dulles International Airport, and directly connected to Reagan National Airport and Union Station via Metrorail. Everything you need is within easy walking distance, and countless options are within just a few miles. Our resources section has more, and we'd be happy to assist you in planning your trip.
