    Excellent updated facility and location adjacent to The Wharf and waterfront restaurants. Floating docks. Current charge $3 per ft.. Excellent WiFi.. Walking distance to Capital Mall/Washington Monument. Metro and Safeway 0.4 miles. CVS 1 block away. Friendly, helpful staff and members.. Club's upper deck bar and restaurant open Thur, Fri, Sat and available to transients. Great food and very reasonably priced.. Pass card security. Pump out at slip. Recycling. Large laundry facility takes coins or credit card. Can be noisy at times during day due to large helicopter and airplane flight paths over river. Wish we had the time to stay longer!

    We'd been here in 2015 while the new waterfront was under construction. Now the waterfront is inviting and beautiful. Capital Yacht Club offers an upscale building to go with their nice floating docks and a great bunch of welcoming members. Half a bock away, up Sutton toward Maine there is a parking garage for visitors and a bus stop. Within walking distance there are plenty of stores and numerous ways to get around the city, if that's what you want to do. However, we mostly enjoy the waterfront, Capital Yacht Club facilities, and the ambiance of being in Washington, DC on the waterfront.

    The absolutely best place to stay if you are visiting D.C. for the first time. The CYC members and staff make you to feel at home in their fabulous clubhouse. A convenient, free shuttle bus makes a run every 15 minutes to a Metro station and The National Mall. A Safeway grocery store literally requires only a 10 minute walk to obtain provisions. Fresh seafood of almost any variety can be found at the Seafood Market, a short stroll from the Yacht Club. There aren't many transient slips available, so make your request as far in advance as possible.
