Travelling from DC to NYC

I'm staying Washington DC for two night in downtown where all the tourist places are. This is my first time here, planning to go to NYC and stopping at Philadelphia for a day.

Which mode of transportation would be best for 5 people with like 6 big luggages? Bus? Train or car rental? It will be on dec 27 - go to Philadelphia stay for a night then head to NYC

Van rental will probably be the most convenient (you can set your own schedule) and cost-efficient given the size of your group. Where are you staying in DC and ultimately headed to in NYC?

There are car rental places all over DC, and Reagan National Airport is a 15 minute ride on the Metro to get a car at the Airport if you prefer. (You may need to if you have a specific request like a mini-van).
