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.

Happy to Recommend

  • 5 of 5

Great, well maintained, well appointed and comfortable apartment, with a good view of the Capitol. The apartments are less than 10 mins walk to the nearest Metro (and Union Station). Mark and Barbara were easily contactable and respond very quickly. Yes there's a fair bit of construction going on in the vicinity at present but it should be remembered this is a city location. There are 2 rooftop pools, including a smaller relaxing pool.

Not what I expected

  • 2 of 5

Good location, close to metro, grocery stores, pharmacy and several restaurants. We also chose to walk to the National Mall area attractions a few days which was about a mile, with many interesting buildings, shops, restaurants, etc. along the way. Great view of the city & some monuments from the rooftop of the building.

For the most part, the apartment was clean, however there were some dust-covered potato chips under the couch and the hallway walls could use a good cleaning or repainting. Living room furniture & area rugs were old & frayed. While the bath linens were very nice, the bed linens were cheap “box store bed-in-a-bag” quality, and the kitchen linens were virtually non-existent (one well-used dish towel and 2 dish cloths). Kitchen is moderately equipped, but if you have 3-4 people, be prepared to run the half empty dishwasher after every meal so you have clean dishes for the next meal. The cookware was good quality, which was a pleasant surprise.

Not a “kid-friendly” place as the residents are mostly young professionals and students from nearby colleges/universities, so every day the rooftop pools and deck are filled with parties where there is lots of alcohol and language that is not appropriate for children.

Don’t plan on sleeping in because very loud construction begins at 7 am six days a week. Thinking we would finally be able to get a little extra rest on Sunday morning didn’t work out well either because a 2 am fire alarm forced us down 14 flights of steps, only to find out that it was a false alarm which, according to residents, happens frequently.

The booking process was clumsy and frustrating. Communication from the manager bordered on rude and was the least “customer-oriented” exchange that I’ve ever had with any Home Away rental property.

One word...AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful building, apartment, furnishings and amenities. Impeccably maintained and clean, this property was even more than we expected. The floor to ceiling windows in every room offer amazing views of the city and is within walking distance to shopping, restaurants and virtually all the main sites in DC. I would highly recommend and can't wait to stay again in the future.

WOW

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was in walking distance to everywhere. Apartment had view of capitol which was cool. About a 15 minute walk to the National Mall. Beautiful kitchen, comfortable beds, very clean apartment. Excellent rooftop pool with grill. Note: You need yo use a lighter to get grill on.

My only suggestion is it would have been nice if they would have had an extra comforter for the sofa bed.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a place to stay in D.C., especially with all the amenities of home(washing machine, dryer, kitchen, living area) and a 2 minute walk to Safeway for groceries. It was nice coming back to this apartment after our long days.

Good Location

  • 3 of 5

Good location, secure building. Living room has one couch, one easy chair - with 4 adults you need to pull in a side chair from the dining room. Manager relatively unresponsive after you pay - once you send a second email usually responds. Do not plan to leave luggage after the check out time, it is a two page email on why it isn't a good idea and then a note to call the day before you check out and ask again - not worth the effort, just figure out another way.

Apartment is clean, adequately stocked and pleasant

Owner's Response: This review is somewhat perplexing and certainly not in accord with our 4 years of reviews on this site. Re the late check-out - that is of course subject to availability, but we regularly go out of our way to help our guests to allow either a somewhat later check out and/or a few more hours of baggage hold. When the guest asks for a late check out, we email a very comprehensive 1-paragraph (not nearly 1 1/2 pages as this guest exaggerates) email which carefully explains how much we can help. Re the communication (or lack there of as this guest states), I am sure you do not see that in any other of our 4 years of reviews. Upon seeing this review, I pulled up all past correspondence with this guest, as we save all communications. I see 2. One, her request for a late check-out for 8pm on the day of check-out, which is completely an unreasonable time, plus our immediately corresponding afor mentioned 1-paragraph policy, and the second communication, an email from us to her when her credit card declined.
