The Best Hotel Near the Navy Yard Metro
The Courtyard Marriott is the only option for a hotel near the Navy Yard Metro and is located about 1.5 station or 3 blocks from the Nationals Ballpark. Little stands out about the Courtyard in a positive or negative direction. Guests with modest expectations will be comfortable here. Breakfast is not provided, but is available at the Bistro (Courtyard’s standard in hotel restaurant). Wifi is free. This hotel sits on the edge of downtown expansion toward the stadium. Business travelers might appreciate this hotel for its access to specific government buildings, tourist might chose this location for proximity to baseball. Regardless, if you don’t fall into these categories its worth exploring other options just outside of DC on the red or orange lines because the savings here is not that great, and the neighborhood leaves a lot to be desired.
Recommended Hotel at Navy Yard: Courtyard
Why: Walk to baseball games, and save a little on downtown hotels.
About the Navy Yard Neighborhood
Navy Yard is an urban neighborhood in southeast Washington on the Anacostia River. Located on the green line, Navy Yard is a mix of government and commercial buildings, high-rise apartments, and newly built townhouses. This area has been built up in the past several years, and is being populated by young professionals and government personnel, particularly military members, as well as young families. This area has become very safe in the past couple of years, but as in any urban area, you should exercise caution when walking around at night.
With its proximity to Nationals Park, you’ll find many sports bars and restaurants in this area. During games, the Bullpen offers a gathering spot for fans to eat ballpark fare, drink beer, and play outdoor games, like cornhole. You’ll find a number of restuarants down on the water in Yards Park. Visit Bluejacket for their wide variety of in-house beers and barbeque.
Nationals Park is the main attraction in Navy Yard, and the neighborhood gets incredibly busy during games. Yards Park offers a number of attractions, from restaurants and bars, to shopping, to outdoor activities. In winter, Navy Yard offers an ice skating rink and in summer, kids especially like to jump around in Yards Park’s water feature. In the summer, Yards Park also offers a concert series and outdoor movies. The Marine Barracks are also located in this area—in summer, line up to watch the United States Marine Bands perform during Evening Parade.
Navy Yard and Yards Park connect to the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail, a popular trail for biking and running. In summer, enjoy the Anacostia River by kayak or canoe via the Ballpark Boathouse.
