There are no hotels near the Howard University Metro
The closest nearby alternative are hotels near the Mt. Vernon station which is closer to DC. These hotels will be more expensive and won’t offer free parking. Families who need free parking and an affordable place to stay near the Metro along the Green line should look into one of the two hotels near the Greenbelt Metro Station. This station has easy access to 495, and each hotel offers free parking. The College Park Metro Station is another possibility, but hotel options aren’t as desirable as Greenbelt.
About Howard University / Shaw Metro
This metro stop is off T street, one street up is U street which is home to many nightclubs and restaurants including Ben’s Chili Bowl. This is an area of DC with a lot of character, although not quite as safe. The 930 Club is an excellent concert venue that is a few blocks from the Howard University / Shaw metro station.
