Thoroughly clean. Easy instructions to enter and exit. Pay close attention to the instructions you receive from the owner. Plenty of clean towels. Large bedroom. Large bathroom. Good shower pressure. Drinks and snacks stocked in the room were a great bonus. Fan kept the room cool throughout the night. Easy access to everything downtown—bus, metro, only 10 min walk from Union Station. I was alone but probably not a neighborhood I would’ve walked through with my family/kids, especially at night. Breakfast is a do-it-yourself affair. As a picky eater, I determined to go out for breakfast each morning rather than use the options available for me to make from the food provided in a shared fridge/kitchen. Loaves of white bread, packaged meat and cheese, cereal dispensers, and the like. Friends I was with in DC paid 3x s what I did and were no closer to the mall. If you use Lyft/Uber for nighttime arrivals/departures, this is an inexpensive and convenient base camp for exploring the city.
