About Colin Thomas

I am a military officer and pilot as well as a real estate professional. I have extensive travel experience and understand the nuances associated with creating a comfortable and memorable experience in our nation's capitol.

I am also a Washingtonian and live nearby. I have a very in depth knowledge of all that Washington DC has to offer and am happy to provide any recommendations to make your stay more enjoyable.

Why Colin Thomas chose Washington DC

Since being built in 1880 numerous Senators, Congressmen, artists, and academics have all resided at what is now Hill Flats.

The building was previously used as a lecture hall and residence for scholars conducting research at the Library of Congress which is across the street.

Due to the buildings immediate proximity to national monuments, the National Park Service and Washington DC has designated Hill Flats a Historic building and has registered it under the Capitol Overlay and Fine Arts District. This designation ensures that all preservation is conducted under the direction of the Architect of the Capitol.

Hill Flats has been meticulously preserved while ensuring that it meets modern comforts.

If you are looking for character and historic charm there is no substitute.

Washington DC Close Up

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the location of this apartment and proximity to the Capital. The area has a few nice restaurants although no grocery stores in the vicinity. You cannot ask for better access to the the sites whether it is the Capital building, the Supreme Court, National Archives and list goes on.

The apartment is functional. We found the bed to be tired and the apartment itself a little worn. The couch was not meant to sit on however the kitchen was updated and came with the basic items expected for an extended stay. Water pressure was good and the laundry in the basement was nice to have.

Overall we would give the location a high 4 low 5 and the apartment a 3.

Cozy walk-up in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Small but clean and comfortable walk-up in a tree-lined residential neighborhood, ideally situated within walking distance to shops, restaurants, services, and everything on the Mall. Beds and linens were decent, updated bath and kitchen both very nice (new appliances, counters, etc), although the kitchen was a bit under-equipped to be truly functional. And, as others have noted, the wifi signal is weak. Otherwise, we loved it. The owner, Gene, could not have been more helpful in terms of advice, directions and recommendations. An unexpected power outage was attended to professionally and pro-actively. We especially enjoyed the Eastern Market, We The Pizza and Brasserie Beck during our visit. Would recommend this unit and hope to stay here again!

It was fine.

  • 3 of 5

The unit is obviously old. It seems highly unlikely that 4 people could stay here. There are no dressers and no table to eat at. But for two it was ok.

Owner's Response: Drake, Thanks for your response. In terms of the place seeming old, we do advertise that it is a brownstone build in 1880. Secondly, it has been renovated with high quality granite counter-tops and stainless steel appliances. I'd like to point out that we've had many, many groups of 4 and 6 stay people stay at the apartment and leave 5 star reviews. Your assertion that 4 would be uncomfortable for a 2 bedroom apartment with 2 queen beds and an air mattress is simply incorrect. Many people find it very economical for short stays. We are reviewing how the furniture is laid out in each unit. We hope to include a kitchen table in the near future. Thanks again for your feedback and I hope you enjoyed your time in DC.
