Our home is located on a quiet, tree lined street in Capitol Hill, steps from Union Station, the Metro and a Capitol Bike Share location http://www.capitalbikeshare.com/. A few minutes’ walk to the Capitol building, Senate and House buildings, the U.S. Botanical Garden, Smithsonian Institution museums, the Mall, Stanton Park, Lincoln Park and Eastern Market. Restaurant row is one block away on Massachusetts Avenue.

Capitol Hill is one of Washington DC's most historic districts. Pierre L'Enfant described the crest of the hill as 'a pedestal waiting for a monument' and shortly afterward, in 1793, George Washington laid the first cornerstone of the United States Capitol building, which now stands facing the city and the National Mall. Behind the Capitol building is the Supreme Court and the Library of Congress. Union Station, at the northern end of Capitol Hill, is not only Washington DC's main rail terminal, but also one of the most popular tourist attractions due to its recent renovation.

Union Station, Washington's main rail terminal, was designed to act as a monumental gateway to the nation's capital city and is located conveniently close to the U.S. Capitol Building, the National Mall and other attractions such as the National Gallery of Art. Since extensive renovation in the 1980s, the Union Station building now houses cafes, restaurants, and stores. Points of interest within Union Station include the carefully restored main waiting room, a 96 foot chamber with gold-leaf ceiling, that is now used for Balls and other festive events and the Presidential waiting room in the East hall. Just outside Union Station are the Thurgood Marshall Federal Judiciary Building and National Postal Museum.

Wonderful place with loads of character

2 families of four for spring break.
This place had loads of room and allowed for two families to share without feeling like we were right on top of each other. There are essentially two living quarters. The top floor has 3 bedrooms. the middle (ground) floor has living area, kitchen, dining area that seated all 8 of us together and a half bath. the lower floor is its own separate apartment that also has kitchen bathroom bedroom and living area. The lower area also has a washer and drier.

There are a handful of good restaurants in the area and Union Station is literally a stones throw from the front door. It's close enough to everything to be accessible but far enough that you're not in the tourist center. You are in a small neighborhood and because of that it is quiet.

Good dining choices close, but again, local faire, so don't expect tons of fast food or large dining establishments. These are small neighborhood places, but but quite good. Grocery store is walkable (we did it several times). Fully stocked kitchen. and 2 coffee makers in the house.

For a family that likes to relax and not be right in the middle of things this is the place. The only downside, is you are not right in the middle of things, so if you want to spend the day in the mall, it's a short train ride there. For us, it was no big deal because we would leave in the AM and return that night, so 2 short train rides were never an issue, but it is something to consider if you feel like you need to be right on top of the sights and sounds. The capital is a 8-9 minute walk (for a reference). Add 2 miles to that for the Lincoln memorial. This is not a negative, simply an FYI. We really like the placed a lot.

Perfect Location!

We were visiting DC as a group of 60 and 70 year olds! The location to Union Station was terrific. It was easy to grab a bite to eat, sign up for a bus tour and catch a taxi. Right next store to Union station is the Smithsonian Postal Museum and we thought it was outstanding! Beds were comfy and house was immaculate. The narrow flights of stairs both up and down were alittle tricky and probably not for very young children or people much older than us. We all gave this house a thumbs up!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location/neighborhood was perfect. The house was clean.Our only problems were the kitchen disposal wasn't working and was the only drainage for the kitchen sink. Also te upstairs bathtub was very slow to drain.The whole family agrees we would stay there again. A suggestion:Moving old inventory (food in the freezer,laundry detergent,refrigerator).Since we have no way of knowing the age of food items and were unaware cleaning products were there.

My Sorority sisters and I had a wonderful time during our centennial anniversary. This home was the perfect size, location from the convention center, metro and all other attraction options we enjoyed. We were very satisfied with the amenities and the property manager assisted us with everything we needed. Thanks so much for helping to make our week a very memorable one.
