About Mark Nicolini

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!

Why Mark Nicolini chose Washington DC

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

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.

Washington D.C.

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing rental property! We had a wonderful trip to D.C., and this was the most central location you could ask for. The apartment itself is immaculate! Also very well decorated! We were upgraded to the apartment with a view of the Capital Building, and that was spectacular! 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).

DC LEO Mem Week

  • 5 of 5

The listing description was dead on accurate. The location was perfect for my needs. The apt was neat, clean and well maintained. I have stayed at this location the past 3years and haven't been disappointed yet. I have reccommended this property to others and they have also taken advantage. I would continue to reccommend this property in the future. The roof top amenities were especially enjoyable.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in May and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and the convenience of our location. The apartment more than exceeded our expectations and we will stay here again in the future! The hosts were more than accommodating and answered all our questions promptly. I would definitely recommend them.
