Barracks Row, Washington D.C.

Welcome to the heart of Barracks Row. As you enter through the wrought iron gate you’ll feel as though you’ve entered a fairytale. The lush green courtyard entices you as you move closer. Rather than a yellow brick road, follow the red brick-lined path leading you to a beautiful 1930’s building, Callisto. Expansive black framed windows cover the building, ensuring your space is well lit throughout your stay. Drop your bags and venture out into this historic neighborhood. Known as the first post of the Marine Corps, you’re right across the street from the Navy Yard.  Trendy boutiques, Michelin-starred restaurants, and riverfront parks have revitalized this urban neighborhood. While timeless museums and historical landmarks hold tribute to our nation’s capital. Watch the Washington Nationals hit a home run before grabbing a pint at The Brig, a neighborhood beer garden famed for its German pretzels. Hop on a city bike to explore the Anacostia River or lounge at The Yards Park. Need a rental car during your stay? Have one delivered right to your Sonder whenever you’d like.
