Georgetown University Yates Field House (Lap Pool too)

37th & O Streets NW
Washington 20057
202-687-2400 or 687-2412website
Area: Georgetown

Given the posh neighborhood, the Georgetown name and the massive facility size, we expected a high-end health club. While it's hardly posh, the large facility is well stocked!  The weight equipment and cardio machines are all on one level beneath a soaring ceiling adjacent to basketball courts and tennis courts. The stack loaded weight stations are mostly the Life Fitness brand and they are fairly new. The free weights and some of the other strength equipment are also present, and for those lifting dumbbells, the 5lbs to 120lbs set will get the job done. The fitness picture is very bright for cardio exercisers. Plentiful Life Fitness and Precor machines populate the floor with mostly Precor for the ellipticals and Life Fitness for the cycles. There are at least 16 treads too.

Yates members and guests also have access to several squash and racquetball courts, an indoor track and a golf room.  Rackets and balls can be rented at the pro shop. Call ahead to reserve a tennis, squash or racquetball court.

By far, Yates' best feature is its 25-yard lap pool. Exceeding our expectations, this top-notch aquatic facility offers 8 lanes of competition quality swimming and a separate diving well. Unlike the ever changing direction of D.C.'s traffic lanes, swimmers here can rely on floating lines, bottom stripes and backstroke flags to clearly guide their way. Kickboards and pull-buoys are provided for extra swim fun and there are two pace clocks. Lappers will love this pool.

Conference Center guests receive access to the University's Yates Field House for a reasonable $12 fee. The facility is located 100 yards southwest of the hotel, just over a large hill. If you are a guest of an alum or student, you can also gain access for $12.
