Guestbook comments from the manager
My vacation stay at the DC Mass Ave apartment was wonderful. The apartment was all it was represented to be, and more. We were very comfortable. The owner of the company managed everything and he was wonderful to deal with. The location was extremely convenient and all DC sites were easy to get to. I would definately stay in this DC apartment again. JL

I have over 20 years experience in the hotel industry and 5 years experience in the 'corporate housing', temporary housing business. I have a passion for customer service and attention to detail. This is a family run operation I personally over see every aspect of your stay with us!

I have 5 apartments in the Gallery Place area of DC. I like Gallery Place due to its proximity to all the DC sights and it is only 2 blocks to the DC Convention Center. Just a few minutes walk to Gallery Place METRO station, which is a major DC subway hub.

This is a termendous ultra-modern building with roof top views of all DC. Please read the reviews as the past guests just love this building and location.

THE PERFECT LOCATION TO SEE IT ALL!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife, 3 daughters and I stayed at the condo for a week in June. It was PERFECT! The condo itself is very nice and fit us just right. The kitchen was great for cooking breakfast and with my wife and 3 girls....being able to do laundry was a huge plus.

But I have to say, the best part of this place is the location. That Penn Quarter area just to the south between the condo and the Mall.....Chinatown to the southwest and the area right around the condo was very quaint as well. Many....many great places to eat within walking distance....grocery store 3 blocks away....the convenience of this location cannot be beat! You can walk down the the national mall.....or jump on the Metro just a few blocks away and get anywhere quickly. The rooftop pool was great.....views were amazing!!

The people at Zen were also very helpful getting us in a bit early and out a bit late! The whole experience was just top shelf for our family.....high recommend this condo!!

FAMILY VACATION FOR JULY 4TH.

  • 5 of 5
This is a very large property in a great location. After a small initial problem with housekeeping, which was taken care of immediately, this was a fun week at a beautiful property. The manager Mark and Barb were very attentive to all our needs.
Pros:
Location (close to everything including Metro), size (huge unit and rooms), amenities (all cooking utensils, cleaning supplies, towels, etc.), cleanliness (after housekeeping correction this place was spotless!), concierge staff (front desk especially Johnson), other property residents (everyone was friendly and welcoming), pools (especially w/kids on a 100 degree day), Zen staff. :)
Cons:
Property sparsely decorated and minimally furnished (kind of antiseptic). That's it!

LOVED DC

  • 5 of 5
We so enjoyed our stay in DC. This was a first for our family. We loved the Mass apartments . It really gave us the downtown DC feel in a very safe environment. The concierge was extremely helpful with any questions we had. Helped us navigate riding the Metro and telling us areas that were in easy walking distance .We walked most everywhere including to the White House and all of the Smithsonians and always felt safe waking back even at night. The apartment was wonderful and we had a CVS right across the street for anything we needed including groceries.Plenty of places to eat right beside us for taking dinner to the apartment after a long day of sight seeing. Would certainly stay here again and woudl recommend it to others.

GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5
Our group of seven (2 kids, 2 teens, 3 adults) stayed in this Mass Ave apartment last week. We priced hotels and this was cheaper, plus having a kitchen and washer/dryer really came in handy! We brought food and ate our breakfasts and suppers in the apartment, only eating lunches out.

We paid the $15/day to park our vehicle and did all our sightseeing by foot/metro. Never felt unsafe in this neighborhood, even walking home late from Union Station after our Monuments by Moonlight tour.

The apartment was very clean and the concierge in the building are awesome!! The kids swam in the pool twice during our stay. It's a bit of a walk around the rooftop to get to the "big" pool on the 425 wing. The rooftop has beautiful views at night--very pleasant up there.

One tip--the blinds in the apartment don't block much light. I had trouble sleeping the first night because of the street light coming through the window shades. The next two nights I was so tired from all the walking we did those days that I had no trouble sleeping, lol!

Mark is very quick to respond via email and if you have a straightforward stay with no special requests I imagine you will have a 5 star experience. However, I asked for an early check-in because we had a 3pm tour scheduled and I needed somewhere to park our car beforehand. Housekeeping team was slow to respond to email. Finally, though, they assured me I could check-in at 1pm. Upon arrival the concierge seemed puzzled to see me there so early. I explained my early check in so she called Zen and said they hadn't even arrived to clean the apartment yet! Thankfully she let me park in the garage so we could be on our way. I never heard a word of explanation from Zen about this error until a week later when I emailed Mark to let him know I would be writing up high-star reviews (because we did really enjoy the apartment/location despite Zen's errors)--basically giving him a chance to explain what happened before I wrote my review. He responded defensively and with no apology. He said their car had broken down on the way to clean the apartment that day. No explanation as to why Zen never contacted me l to let me know this. It's common courtesy if you can't make an appointment to call and let the other party know. I would've understood! After several email exchanges, Zen has offered nothing even approaching an apology for their lack of communication.

EXCELLENT FAMILY TRIP TO DC.

  • 5 of 5
I brought my wife and three daughters (ages 13, 11, 9) to DC and greatly enjoyed this property. The size of the apartment was perfect for our family and a much better fit for us than a hotel. I found nightly rates at hotels to be about the same as this property, so this was a great deal for us.

Mark at Zen Properties was very responsive and professional. The property was exactly as described, very clean and well kept. Lots of upscale features. The concierge desk at the apartment complex was always helpful.

We enjoyed the convenience of being a couple blocks away from a WalMart and Safeway, and a CVS right across the street. We also enjoyed being in the heart of the city. This made it easy for us to take a site seeing break mid-day, head back to the apartment and rest up, then tackle another museum in the afternoon. If we would have stayed outside the city, we would have probably made one trip in every day, and worn ourselves out more than we did.

We did not have a car, and you don't need one at this property. We took the Metro from Reagan to the Chinatown stop, then a 3 block walk to the apartment. We took the Metro and the DC Circulator bus everywhere we wanted to go. The apartment is close enough to The Mall and Ford's Theatre that you could walk (we did this a couple times) but we usually took very short Metro rides to all the hot spots.

A few things to keep in mind:
- Distance from the apartment to two different Metro stations is about three city blocks. I forgot how big city blocks are. This equated to about a 10 minute walk for our family each time we wanted to hop on the Metro.
- You are in the heart of the city. So, to be expected, you hear the city noise throughout the day and night.
- We never felt unsafe. Police everywhere.
- The building is full of young professionals. They work hard and they play hard. We saw and heard some serious partiers on the weekend evenings. This didn't bother us much, but some may be more sensitive to this.
- Despite sticking out a bit as a family of five who were obviously tourists, all these young professionals we bumped into, or asked questions of, were very kind and helpful.

Excellent experience, and I would definitely stay here again.

THIS CONDO WAS EXCELLENT!

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful condo in an excellent location! We stayed here for 5 nights and it is everything as advertised and more. Mark is very easy to work with and the bldg is very new, clean and modern. It is close to the Gallery Place Metro stop for easy mobility. There are so many great restaurants near the condo as well. An excellent find!!!!!
