Metro is the easiest unless you want to split a cab or use a service like super shuttle.

From DCA National Airport via Metro - Take Metro Blue Line directly from the Airport terminal to the Metro Center Station and switch to Red Line toward Shady Grove - get off at the Friendship Heights Station - Red Line. Follow signs from Metro Exit to Chevy Chase Pavilion entrance.

Metro will take you approxately 45 - 55 min depending on the time of the day. This is also the best way to get to northern dc from reagan if you arrive during rush hour....getting across town isnt fun by car at that time.

There is an alternate Metro route for getting from DCA to Chevy Chase Pavilion: Take a Yellow line train in the direction of Mt. Vernon Square/Fort Totten, then transfer to the Red line in the direction of Shady Grove at Gallery Place/Chinatown, and continue to Friendship Heights as described above.

With four people, if you have a lot of luggage, you might find it more comfortable to take a cab. But I would not recommend the Super Shuttle service - it really isn't cost-effective for four, and tends to be quite slow and inefficient (you first have to wait for the van to fill up with passengers, then wait for others to be dropped off en route to your destination).

Split a cab, particularly if you're arriving during rush hour and aren't familiar with the Metro system. Harried commuters hate directionless luggage-touting tourists impeding their commutes home.
