The station is located in a commercial area of Hyattsville near The Mall at Prince Georges, which, prior to receiving its second name in November 2004, was called Prince George's Plaza, at East-West Highway (Maryland Route 410) and Belcrest Road. Service began on December 11, 1993.
Originally, only Green Line trains served the station and ran between Fort Totten and Greenbelt. Eventually, this segment of the Green Line was connected with the rest of the Green Line in September 1999.
Rush hour Yellow Line trains began operating at this station from June 12, 2012, operating between Greenbelt and Franconia–Springfield. However, on June 25, 2017, this service was discontinued because of budget cuts.
In May 2018, Metro announced an extensive renovation of platforms at twenty stations across the system. The platforms at the Greenbelt station would be rebuilt starting on May 29, 2021, through September 6, 2021.
In November 2020, WMATA approved a request from Prince George's County to change the name of the former Prince George's Plaza station to Hyattsville Crossing. The new name took effect on September 11, 2022.
