From the Metro, exit L'Enfant Plaza station at 9th and D Streets escalator, walk through the shopping mall towards the CVS store (on the left). Due to construction at L'Enfant Plaza, the escalator that provides access to the Board Room level is out of service.

The Board Room can also be accessed on the garage level.
