About Capitol South

Who is Best for this Location?

This location is also ideal for anyone with business on the Hill.


nieghborhood_vibe_48Neighborhood Vibe: Capitol South sits at the heart of American politics. It is the metro stop most convenient to the Capitol Building, the Library of Congress, and the Supreme Court; in fact, it lets riders off in the midst of the office buildings that are home to the House of Representatives. Beyond the government buildings, you’ll find a safe neighborhood full of picturesque row houses home to affluent families and young professionals. The character of the neighborhood scene can be dependent on what’s going on in Congress—a late vote and you may find yourself dining next to faces you recognize from CSPAN or Meet the Press.

Home to the largest Shakespeare collection in the world, the Folger offers rotating exhibitions, special events, and performances.
