Is Greenbelt Right for You?
Greenbelt Neighborhood: This is an ideal location for visitors who are looking for a basic hotel to sleep in after a long day in DC. Many people will take a look at Greenbelt if they are flying into BWI because transportation from Washington, DC to BWI flows through Greenbelt. There are no hotels within walking distance, but the Greenbelt station is flush with over 200 spaces of parking available at $5 per day. Visitors should be prepared for a no-frills neighborhood and a 30 to 40 minute commute into Washington, DC on the Metro. Greenbelt, Maryland is located at the end of the green/yellow metro lines, north of Washington, DC. Close to the University of Maryland, this area is suburban, with groups of townhouses, neighborhoods of single family homes, and the requisite office parks and strip malls. This is a safe area, but not very walkable. A car is really a must to stay here. Greenbelt is conveniently located off of the Capital Beltway and there is a bus to Baltimore-Washington International Airport from the metro station.
