Luggage on metro to Union Station on weekday morning

Jump to last reply

We're staying at the Grand Hyatt, which has an entrance to the Metro Center stop in its lobby. We're taking the 7:30 a.m. Amtrak to Williamsburg on a Friday morning.

Since Union Station appears to be only a few stops down from our hotel on the red line, I was hoping we could just take the metro to Union Station. I figure that we'll try to leave the hotel around 6:15 - 6:30 a.m.

How feasible would it be for 4 people with luggage (each with a 24" suitcase and a carry on type bag) to manage the morning commute crowds? Is it better to just take a taxi?

Thanks for any help you can provide.
