Just as advertised

  • 4 of 5

Great location and exactly what the pictures suggest. Stayed there with a co-worker and attended a convention. Then extended to have my family join me for a few days. Worked great. Cliff was extremely helpful when making and adjusting our travel plans. He also checked to make sure everything was good while we were there. Thanks

Clean and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for a conference. The Convention Center is only a few blocks away. There are tons of restaurants within walking distance. The big DC sites of White House, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, Vietnam Wall, etc are about 3 miles away. We ended up walking over to them, and it wasn't a bad hike for adults. The kids were less pleased with the exercise.

My husband and I used this condo with our 4 kids, ages 5, 6, 15 and 18. The property had plenty of space for the 6 of us. The TV has Netflix, so we were more than happy with the entertainment for the limited time we spent in the condo. There is a Mexican restaurant 3 doors down that is fabulous and the magnet for the pizza place that is on the fridge delivers some mighty fine pizza. The hosts are great and very attentive. The bedrooms have curtains separating them from other areas of the condo as opposed to doors. My husband is a snorer, so I just made sure to pack the white noise machine to drown him out.

The condo is clean and comfortable. They provide towels, shampoo, conditioner and body wash. They have a washer/dryer combo in the kitchen which does the job to make sure you have clean towels every day. If you have a great deal of laundry to do, I would find a laundromat. We would absolutely stay here again if back in the area.

Amazing Location, Great for Family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 loved this rental - it was clean, very comfortable beds, close to the metro and walking distance from great restaurants, the grocery store and museums and monuments. We felt very safe and loved the amenities. The washer / dryer combo was great to have - we would do a load of laundry each day which helped when we returned home. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great DC location

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Somewhat small. Only 1 bathroom so kind of inconvenient for 4 people or more, unless you're comfortable with eachother. Good kitchen. WIFI, for TV not good for movies. Kept buffering .. but when you're walking around DC all day you may not care.

nice place

  • 4 of 5

This is the second time I've stayed at this building and the first in this unit. The location is pretty good. Few blocks to the Metro and a store at the corner for quick milk and eggs and so on. The unit itself has an interesting layout. It is long with the only bathroom in the back bedroom. It wasn't really an issue as we were all comfortable with each other that we could just walk through the bedroom to use the bathroom. It is the bottom unit so there isn't much sunlight that comes in but my thought, it's only a place to lay our heads as we explored DC plus I like to sleep in without blaring sunlight to wake me so it was perfect. To access the building you will get a code to enter and then another code to enter your place so I like the security of it. It's got a nice kitchen for cooking quick meals like breakfast and an all-in-one washer dryer which came in handy. The unit also has free wi-fi which is a bonus. Overall we enjoyed our stay and most likely will stay again.
