Great place to stay near Capitol

  • 5 of 5

The small apartment is perfect for a stay in DC. Close to the Capitol. The shower is strong and bed comfortable. Small kitchen with refrigerator and stove. Coffee pot and hair dryer. Soap and shampoo provided. Very easy to get around from here.

Quiet, clean and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

This quaint little space was inviting from the moment we arrived. The kitchen had everything including treats and good coffee stocked! Leslie was very helpful when we had a question and responded promptly. The bed was very comfortable and everything was very clean. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone visiting DC. Convenient to the sites. Parking availability was a bonus!

Well maintained and very convenient

  • 5 of 5

It was easy in and out. Space was beautiful and well kept. Location was great. Owners left some water and snacks for me, and tons of information but also gave me plenty of space. I hope they don't mind but I already shared the listing with a friend so that she can use it when she is in town!

Quiet, cozy little nest

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for my purposes. A comfy bed and all the accoutrements of home. I wished for a den space when I was working with a friend, but we made do with the kitchen table. Another review seemed frustrated that you enter the apartment from the back, but having a place off the street meant it was so QUIET at night...

Really nice and clean.

  • 5 of 5

A little awkward having to go around the block to enter from the rear. Communication with owner was great. Would recommend the place to anyone.

About Leslie Merkle

As 30 year residents of Capitol Hill we've been privileged to have front row seats to all the major political, social, and cultural events of the last quarter century. Living in the shadow of the U.S. Capitol we've been able to observe inaugurations, Memorial Day concerts, 4th of July fireworks, Cherry Blossom Parades, and countless protests and demonstrations. Although we do not have a yard, we do have the National Mall, the Capitol grounds, and we are surrounded by lovely parks. We are within walking distance of the Smithsonian Museums, the National Portrait Gallery, the Folger Shakespeare Library, with easy access to public transportation at Union Station. We love our city and our neighborhood and are delighted when visitors choose to visit our beautiful capital.

Leslie Merkle purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Leslie Merkle chose Eastern Market

Our historic row house, built in 1890, is located within the Capitol Hill Historic District of our nation's capital. Its location next to Union Station, the Capitol and other monuments added to the beauty and uniqueness of our house. Historic preservation is very important to us as homeowners. This house was the last property in the block not renovated, and still in its original condition. Under the auspices of a National Park Service program to encourage historic renovations we restored the house, keeping the original floor plan, repointing the decorative brick facade and replacing the missing wrought iron features. Our block of homes was built by the owner of Smoot Lumber, the oldest continuously operated lumber company in the U.S., founded in Alexandria, Virginia in 1822. Construction on this block was completed in the early 1890's; this block of homes was intended for middle management employees of the railroad at the soon to be opened Union Station train station.

What makes this apartment unique

Location and access are two of the best features of Capitol Quarters. One can walk from the apartment to the U.S. Capitol, Smithsonian Museums, Library of Congress, or Union Station. The neighborhood is dotted with small restaurants, cafes, coffee shops, and eateries. Union Station, right next door, is the entry point to the metro system, Amtrak railways, and guided trolley tours around the city and to local sites.
