DESCRIPTION:

Drop your bags and find yourself at the doorstep of global democracy in this handsomely decorated 1 BR sidewalk level apartment in an historic Capitol Hill townhome. Capitol Hill is one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Washington, DC because it is an unparalleled location for experiencing the Nation’s Capital.

This contemporary apartment in a charming historic row house has all the modern amenities of your own home: cable, WiFi, flat panel TV, fully equipped kitchen with new appliances, washer/dryer, security system, and a private outside patio. The bedroom features a queen-size bed with ample storage and closet space. The living room sofa folds out to a very comfortable full-size sofa bed.

We provide a Welcome Guide upon confirmation of your reservation with helpful details about your apartment, neighborhood and Washington to ensure that you get the most out of your visit.

Please note that no smoking is allowed on premises (including patio area).

AMENITIES:

• Flatscreen wall-mounted TV with cable

• WIFI

• Full kitchen

• Washer/dryer

• Private Patio

• Security System

LOCATION:

This is the heart and soul of Washington, DC. You’re just a short walk to all of DC's major sites, including the U.S. Capitol, Library of Congress, Supreme Court and the impressive National Mall. Want to step out of the tourist mold? Rub shoulders with members of Congress and the Senate in one of “The Hill’s” many fine restaurants and eateries within a 2-block radius; White Tiger, La Loma Restaurant, Café Berlin, Bistro Cacao, Sonoma and Toscana Café to name a few. Beautifully restored Union Station also has a large food court, several restaurants, shops, and Starbucks. Wine aficionado? Schneider’s of Capitol Hill, one of DC’s best wine stores, is also located one block from the apartment. Finish your meal with a leisurely stroll through the history-soaked neighborhoods that author and socialite M.E. Sherwood once described as capturing “a mingled simplicity and grandeur.”

TRANSPORTATION:

You won't need a car! Nearby Union Station is a transportation hub for the mid-Atlantic region. The station contains two train lines (AMTRAK and local MARC trains). Union Station is also home to Washington’s subway Metro Red Line; Metro and Circulator buses; tour operators; and rental cars and bikes. And in addition to plentiful Metrobus stops all along Capital Hill streets, Capital Bikeshare makes bike rental a breeze. Or if you do want to drive (for an hour-long outing, or a longer trip outside the city to Monticello or Gettysburg), consider registering online for Car2Go or Zipcar--flexible alternatives to traditional rental cars. We do not have a parking space at this location. Union Station (very short walk) has a very large parking garage

.

REVIEW:

“This apartment was wonderful and perfect in all ways, decorated beautifully, very clean, perfect location. Inside and out was just lovely. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. You really got the D.C. experience being there. Having a nice kitchen with all the appliances one would need was so convenient. We would spend our days exploring and some nights it was perfect to be able to make a sandwich and gear up for the next day and not have to go out for every meal. The bed and bedding was first rate, and very comfortable. The decor was cozy and very tasteful. We also had a spot to park our rented car so we spent a couple of days in the country. Although, you could spend weeks in town and never see it all. The location was perfect to walk to everything or just around the corner was the Union Station (beautiful) to catch a cab. It was easy to book. Everyone was so helpful in every way. All in all, we are a retired couple who had the perfect adventure. Thank you”

Reviewer Comments:

This was a great location for us--just a 5-7 min walk from Union Station. The neighborhood is very nice. It was a bit of a challenge finding it in the dark but a quick phone call to LUXbnb helped. We did get there very late due to plane delays. The unit itself was very modern and clean. The queen bed was super comfortable as was the sleeper sofa.There was plenty of space for the three of us. And the closet space in the bedroom was very good. Even though it is a basement apartment all was quiet above us. We did have an issue with the bathroom sink and the tub handle but another quick text to LUXbnb and the owner took care of the issues first thing in the am. The only things we thought would be greatly appreciated is having paper products stocked--i.e. toilet paper,paper towels,etc. You can walk to the Capital building and the Library of Congress from this unit--about 15-20 min walk. It's a really enjoyable walk. There is a coffee shop right around the corner from the unit called Ebenezers. It got rave reviews from the coffee drinkers in our party. There is a Harris Teeters(grocery store) about a 20-25 min walk from the unit. And there are a few restaurants nearby as well as at Union Station but we never had a chance to check them out. We did the Big Bus night tour from Union Station. It was a great tour for us. The only other thing we had recommend is making sure you get your welcome packet before you arrive. I didn't realize we didn't have it until we got there and we had questions. LUXbnb did send it via email and I was able to check it out on the IPAD. Overall, we loved the location and the neighborhood. The Owner was very friendly and responsive and we would stay here again.

Our stay was excellent and I would highly recommend this unit for those who want to be close to everything but tucked away in a quiet neighborhood. The layout of the apartment and the amenities exceed our expectations right down to the iron and ironing board 🤓.

This condo is perfection! The location is ideal, since you are near all of the landmarks, monuments, and government buildings. You can walk just about anywhere, or take the Metro at the Union Station only a few blocks away. Restaurants, retailers are all within walking distance! The hop-on, hop-off buses are also at Union. Never needed a car, taxi, or Uber. Took the Metro from Dulles and walked to the condo. EZ PZ!! Sleeping accommodations are great! We truly enjoyed our morning coffee and after dinner drinks and conversations on the charming patio! AND the information provided in advance by property management was very detailed and helpful! I would go back to Capitol Court in a DC heartbeat! If I could give a 5+ stars on location, I would!!

Reviewer Comments:

This location is great. Perfect for our 4 day get-away. Quick 5 min walk to Union Station - which has hop on/hop off tours, and several restaurant options. We started each day at Union Station - quick trip for coffee and then on the bus. Great dining options within walking distance, several coffee shops and markets nearby. We were ok with a lot of walking and it was easy to navigate to the national mall by foot - or Lyft - or public transit. Nice amenities: coffee maker/filters, q-tips, hair dryer, iron, closet storage, kitchen supplies, extra blankets, maps and rack cards for local attractions. It made our stay very comfortable. It is tricky to find the unit, but once you figure it out, it's no big deal. Pay attention to the excellent instructions sent out when you book your stay and you should be fine. My only (minor) complaint is that luggage storage and/or early check in/out is not offered. We flew in early and left late to make the most of our short stay. We had to spend about $75 extra in luggage storage at Union Station.

Reviewer Comments:

Very clean and well maintained, perfect for a couple; any more may be a little tight. The kitchen looked to be well stocked, although we didn't cook one meal. There was no need with the wonderful cafes in the area. The location was perfect for getting to Union Station and around town. The only entrance/exit is in a courtyard access to an alley, not a pretty series of row houses. Although there is very little traffic, there is no separate walkwayfrom the pavement vehicles used. That being said, we certainly felt safe and secure and would rent this apartment again!
