    Tons of united lounge options and if you have Global Entry super fast to clear immigration and customs.

    Everything about Dulles is great. Easy access, easy parking and easy gates.

    Harry's tap house doesn't have a very good list of beers on tap but the Kobe beef burger was delicious

    The "diamond lane" tip in the baggage claim is not always open, so don't depend on it. From start to finish, it took us 46 minutes (timed by my iPhone) to get through security and to our gate in C.

    DCA-Regan is easier to navigate but Dulles has more coast-to-coast directs. Expect bumpy landing due to strong winds!

    Chipotle stopped serving breakfast! Sure their eggs were always mad runny but free range chorizo!? Yum. Drop a complaint to chipotle.com.

    California Tortilla located in terminal C. Can even take shuttle to terminal C & walk to Terminal D if that's where your flight is. :-)

    Capitol Ground in B concourse is a great spot for a quick breakfast! The staff is so friendly too :)

    Long flight? Peanuts are okay, but bringing a filling, healthy snack like almonds or fruit will keep you tied over until your destination. For more travel tips and fun, follow @DoubleTree on Twitter!

    A bit of a hike to get there, but pretty good airport. They need to replace the buses you take to the terminals.

    You can use Uber.com to get a black sedan to or from DC. The flat rate of $80 to/from inside the beltway is comparable to taxi fare and is a LOT better service!

    Who says IAD is crowded? Not me. Especially when your flight gets in at 2:30 a.m. Easy out.

    One of the best structured airports allowing incoming & outgoing passengers in one directions. It resembles the Chennai, India airport.

    Indoor Pet Relief Area across from gate D10. No need to leave security. It's small but sanitary and does the job. All airports should have this.

    Be sure you know how many stops youre making before you decide to take Super Shuttle. It took forever to get to our hotel! The extra for a taxi would be with it.

    Sometimes hot and nasty, other times cold and clammy...this is one airport that I could scratch off ever visiting again...and never miss it.

    The Dulles Diamond Security Point referenced in the other tip WAS amazing and convenient for frequent flyers but now they allow anyone so it gets just as backed up as any other checkpoint. So sad...

    Travel is a great excuse to clean out your purse! Getting rid of clutter in your carry-on bag will allow Transportation Security Officers to get a clear X-ray of your bag and save you time.

    If you're flying in or out of the Washington Dulles International Airport, we are your best alternative for parking at rates much lower than onsite IAD airport parking. Read more

    Watch out for the "shark-cars". They are so cute! (The white transport busses going from gate to gate)

    If you take United and get stuck overnight (very likely with United) make sure you pick up an overnight lot from them. Check their luggage claim office.

    Migrations takes waaay too much time! One from standing in the migrations line until I got thru customs. Luckily there's free open wifi.

    Wait until after 4:30 and it clears out. Good wine selection. Senator Lounge buffet has hot and cold items.

    Even with trains shuttling you to the different terminals, it's still a walk to get from the trains to the actual terminal. Be prepared to pick up your pace!

    Don't take SuperShuttle...you may have to wait 30-60 minutes for a van even with a reservation. Take the MetroBus or WashingtonFlyer bus to Metrorail instead....its cheaper and faster to the city.

    Find the PotBelly Sandwich shop in the United Terminal and bring a bag of chocolate chip cookies to your destination. Everyone will love you for it.

    If you have time, take a cab and visit Udvar Hazy Centre, part of the Air & Space Museum just 2 miles down the road!

    If you're TSA Pre and traveling with someone who is not go to pre check and your companion can use the neighboring aisle....faster than the downstairs mess!!!

    If you are headed to C-Gates, make sure you get on the last tram. This is closest to the walkway entrance.

    If you need to ride one of the shuttle buses to immigration/customs, stay by the entry door for a swift exit. That'll help you in getting in front of the crowd in the passport check lines.

    The new AeroTrain between terminals is slower than the "mobile lounge" by 10 mins; You can still take the mobile lounge. If in C/D across from gate D14. On the other side between A/B concourse (A8)

    Have an hour before your United flight? Hop over to Terminal B before your flight to grab Chipotle or a glass of wine or beer at Starbucks!

    You can make Super Shuttle reservations online. It's easy, you can't miss your ride, and it costs about half the price of a cab and takes half the time of the train (when going to Bethesda).

    The "mobile lounges" need to go. There's nothing worse than being the first off a flight only to get dumped out into one of these infernal diesel-fume-filled relics that waits 20+ minutes to leave.

    This is one of the only Five Guys locations that serves breakfast. And it's amazing(ly self-indulgent).

    One of the most futuristic looking airports in the USA, and fittingly bares some resemblance with some of the local subway stations' architecture
