There are many other hotels in the town of Columbia, Maryland that you may prefer. The town of Laurel, however, covers quite a large area and some parts are FAR so I suggest staying in Columbia, Maryland if so. If you have your own car, you can stay where you please!
1. NOT THE BEST OPTION:
Greyhound and Megabus go into Baltimore and Whitemarsh and then you'd need to get a rental car or take a taxi to venue which is a 30 minute ride in good traffic.
2. THE BEST BUS OPTION FROM NORTH
THIS IS THE BUS TO TAKE FROM NYC = BOLT Bus goes into Greenbelt NOT BALTIMORE.
3. Train- take the Amtrak from NYC
(3 hours) and get off at BWI NOT Baltimore.
It's 20 minutes from venue.
The nearest and easiest AIRPORT is Baltimore (BWI) if you want to be picked up by someone.
Dulles and Reagan are 1 hour away in good traffic, a rare occurence. You will need to find your own transport from these airports.
We can maybe arrange for pick up at BWI airport only if you send us details.
TRANSPORT TO AND FROM THE AIRPORT: You will need to rent a car if you come in to DULLES or REAGAN AIRPORTS as public transportation does not exist outside of big cities.
Shuttle buses to the hotel are possible and then you can taxi to venue or we can arrange a minivan pickup from your hotel.
I like SUPER SHUTTLE from DULLES or REAGAN airports.
And there's always UBER
