About Colin Powell

US Military service member supplementing income by providing reasonable accommodations for families traveling to the Nation's Capital.

Colin Powell purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Colin Powell chose Le Droit Park

Centrally located and extremely convenient to Washington DC Convention Center and the Verizon Center. A short metro ride to all the sites and great local restaurants and nightlife. Georgetown Law School, Howard University, and Catholic University are all within a short commuting distance.

What makes this apartment unique

Allows visitors to experience living in the District. Patrons normally save a great deal of money by preparing their meals for breakfast and dinner as opposed to being forced to eat out while staying in crowded or small hotel rooms that charge more that having a self catering full apartment with wifi and cable TV.

Excellent apartment, especially for anyone attending a convention.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this property for five nights during a recent visit to Washington to attend a convention, It is a well-furnished apartment with a living room, bedroom, bathroom, and a well-equipped kitchen. It is located approximately one mile from the Washington Convention Center and is within easy reach of public transportation. Although I stayed there by myself, I think it would also be ideal for a family looking for relatively inexpensive accommodations while sightseeing in the nation's capital. I highly recommend it.

Okay

  • 1 of 5

Well, it's been a week and a half and several texts later and I still don't have my damage deposit back. VRBO charges you a fee for a "smooth" transaction but what a joke that is. I can just bet that if I had caused any damage while staying on the property they would have been demanding payment immediately. Find some place to stay that isn't listed by VRBO and save yourself some money and grief.

Comfortable Retreat in a Busy City

  • 4 of 5

The condo was spacious with living/dining area, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. It was much more comfortable than any hotel room we could get at comparable price. We loved the kitchen with cooking range, refrigerator and microwave. My wife and I made ourselves at home. With these facilities, we made our own breakfast every morning and were able to zap leftovers for dinner on the last night. We were there in the middle of the week and it was wonderfully quiet. We also appreciated the washer and dryer. We also liked the neighborhood. It is an important historic district and there are good restaurants literally around the corner. It was a good (45 minutes) walk from downtown.

One negative is that it is awkward to get into the condo. It is down a small flight of stairs with locked door at the bottom and hardly any room to stand at the bottom step and turn the lock. With 3 big bags, this was a trick. Another thing to think about is that this is a basement unit. If there are guests upstairs, you may hear them walking around on top of you.

Great location!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location of this property! This was our first time to stay in a Home Away property and we were very pleased. The apartment was as described and pictured. We had a few problems, but they were promptly resolved by the owner and property manager! The apartment was cooler than we were used to, and we weren’t able to control the thermostat. We also were able to hear people in the residence above us. However, the property was reasonably priced, and had everything we needed! We walked everywhere from this location- the Capital, museums, monuments, and the zoo! I can’t imagine a better location! Thank you for a great place to stay in Washington DC. We loved our time here.

Trendy area in town, lots of restaurants a few local bars (always crowded) and within walking distance to the Green line Metro at Shaw/Howard. If you're looking for livelier areas, a short taxi ride to Logan Circle, Adams Morgan, U Street Corridor (walking distance), Georgetown Law School, Howard University, and Catholic University. Bike share for adventurous bicycle riding tourists. Stay in the heart of DC amongst the Washingtonians, while enjoying the culture and city living. Car share programs such as zip cars and cars to go also available if you need to visit Virginia or Maryland. Visit Washington DC Guest Suite on Facebook and get a better idea of the neighborhood. Don't forget to like the page!
