Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Northwest Washington - 1509 Marion Street NW

Junior 1 Bedroom Apt / Sleeps 3

Newly renovated, junior 1 bedroom English basement apartment, with 4 full-size windows, offers plenty of natural light. Sleeps 3 adults with a queen bed and twin sofa bed. You'll have a comfortable night's sleep with 500 thread count sheets and tempurpedic pillows. Full bathroom with bathtub and shower. Washer and dryer in unit. Full-size kitchen appliances include refrigerator, stove, oven, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and iron. Kitchen has granite countertops and is fully furnished with plates, glasses, cookware, utensils, etc. The apartment has all the conveniences of home. For travelers with small children, a highchair and Pack n' Play are available upon request.

The apartment is located just north of downtown, near 2 yellow/green line metro stops—just 3 blocks from Howard University/Shaw metro stop and 4 blocks from the Mt Vernon/Convention Center metro stop. Reagan National Airport is also located on the yellow line, so the commute from the airport is very easy. Washington DC is a very walkable city with good public transportation. You won't need a car while you are here. If you are traveling with a car, there is plenty of street parking available. Street parking is locally zoned, but we will arrange for you to have a parking pass for a $25 fee.

We are walking distance to vibrant nightlife, like the U street corridor, Logan Circle and Chinatown/Gallery Place. Only 3 metro stops to the National Mall and all of the historic monuments. Lots of restaurants within walking distances. 

For extended stays, we will have the apartment cleaned weekly for an additional $50. Nightly rate does not include the Washington DC lodging tax of 14.5%.

We live upstairs and are happy to answer any questions or make recommendations. The apartment has a separate alley entrance, and you will have complete privacy.

About Greg Sitzmann

We moved to DC together in 2005, the year we were married. It was going to be a short-term stay, and here we are eight years later. We absolutely love our city.

Greg Sitzmann purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Greg Sitzmann chose Washington DC

The nice thing about the English basement apartment is that it's only a couple steps below ground. So it really feels more like a first-floor space. The ceilings are high. And the four tall windows let in plenty of natural light.

What makes this apartment unique

Our neighborhood, Shaw, is also called Old City. It has a great neighborhood vibe. Subway stops are convenient. But if you like to walk, it's a beautiful city to see on foot.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

We were very satisfied with our stay. The apartment was everything the owner said it would be - clean, comfortable, quiet and in a good location. We were a 10 minute walk to the convention center and metro stop and a 5 minute walk to a large supermarket. We would stay here again.

Very nice place, great location!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is smaller than I'm used to, but clean and very well stocked with everything I needed, great kitchen, dish and clothes washers, flat screen with a zillion channels. A large market one block away, Metro stations three blocks north and three blocks south, nice neighborhood, big park across street, community garden two buildings away, lots of impressive local restaurants listed in a notebook in the cupboard - everything! Chinatown, the U Street corridor, historic 14th Street, Howard University, Convention Center, African American Civil War Museum - all within an easy mile walk. National Mall less than 2 miles straight down 7th St. Only drawbacks: large divider (closet), but no complete separation of light and sound between bedroom and living room/kitchen; only TV in bedroom just large enough for nice, big bed. Overall, love the place, want to come back. So many restaurants I didn't have time to try.

Pleasant convention center stay

Less than 10 minute walk to the convention center. 1 Block from grocery. Quiet. Kitchen worked well with standard cookware and utensils. Suited my needs very well.

simply excellent.

  • 4 of 5

The area is very comfortable department. It is fully equipped. For two adults is enough space. The air conditioning is perfect. The only thing missing is the daily maid service or at least change the towels. For others it is excellent. Greg (the owner) is very good person, very attentive.

in conclusion, 100% recommended.
