This apartment was the perfect place to stay while we visited DC. It was convenient to the metro and we always felt safe walking. We had our car and found there was always parking available when we needed it. The parking permit was a nice bonus! The apartment had everything we needed. One downside for us was the bathroom design. We are a family of 5 with 3 kids, 10 and under. The open shower design was not perfect for us as it was hard for our kids and it also made it impossible for more than 1 person to use the bathroom without sacrificing all privacy. This is not a criticism of the apartment, it was just as described, but rather a note for other families that may be considering the apartment. It would have been nice on mornings we were in a hurry to have multiple people using the bathroom. However, it would not stop me from renting the place again. I did find that on several nights we heard some loud noises from the upstairs neighbor late in the evening (after 11). Other than that, the apartment worked out great. It certainly made me realize that this is the way to go for future trips. No more hotels for us! We also made use of the washer and dryer! Thanks for a wonderful stay!
