Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Northwest Washington - 1717 Basement

2 Bedrooms, 2 Queen Beds, 1 King Bed + Air Mattress, 2 Full Baths,

Check this place out! Choice neighborhood, great building and beautiful surroundings in the center of D.C. Located on 15th St with a view of the Masonic Temple this location cannot be beat. Experience the city like you live here! This definitely is not a cookie cutter hotel room!

The apt is located in the basement of a very large and imposing historic mansion. This charming building stands out from the street as if it owns the city. Don’t let this apt fool you. Even in the basement there are many windows bringing in natural light from the street.

Your first steps into the apt revel a large and inviting open living space with plenty of room to kick your feet up and relax after a day of touring the city. The living room features a large flat screen TV with full programming and on demand services from Comcast. Plenty of couch and chair space for a group of up to 8 people to spread out.

Whole foods is just a 5 minute walk away! There is a fully equipped kitchen in the unit allowing you to be able to eat in. The dining area has room for up to 8 people as well. Pack light and take advantage of the in unit washer and dryer.

This large apt has 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Off the living room the first bath is located next to the first bedroom. This is a spacious bath with a tub shower. The neighboring bedroom has a queen size bed. At the end of the Hall is the 2nd large bedroom. This bedroom has two beds. First bed is a queen and the second a king. There is an in suite full bath as well with stand-up shower. We also have a queen sized air mattress available if an extra bed is needed. Max occupants for this apartment is limited to 8.

Great location to take advantage of DC metro system. The apartment is situated within an easy walk of the U street metro (green / yellow) and Dupont circle metro (red). Also suggest using Uber the app for private car service. Great location for Convention Center events. Ditch the hotel and stay in a top location!

Huge place in great location

  • 5 of 5

We had 2 families travelling together. 4 adults, and 4 kids fit comfortably. 2 bathrooms made getting up and going in the morning easy. Kitchen is well equipped to cook. The owners seem to keep up on things, beds are extremely comfortable memeroy foam mattresses with nice linens. Plenty of bedding and towels were provided for our group. Being 2 families we drove in and purchased a $50 permit for each car to park on street. We parked within a block, once we did we did not use the cars for the rest of the trip. Great place and great value I would highly recommend!

Great location

  • 3 of 5

Clean with recent upgrades to kitchen, bathrooms & living area. The kitchen has all you need should you want to cook. Big screen TV & good size living room. The mattresses, pillows & linens desperately need to be replaced. The location is terrific especially if you like to walk. Owner was very accessible !

Good place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very well located and the neighborhood is very nice. We had no problem to find it and check in, and that was a good thing.

It is a basement so the entrance is a bit hidden (gardening a little the plants outside would do no harm at all), but apart from that everything was ok. The kitchen is very well equipped and the ac worked perfectly. There's just a couple of things that need to be improved (apart from the entrance plants). The first one is the wall on the left when you enter the big room (the paint is scratched and it doesn't look nice). The other thing is the smaller bed in that room, it was not very comfortable.

Anyway, everything was good, the hosts were responsive and the location is great.

Great place to stay in DC

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic location, close to restaurants, grocery and Metro station; very well equipped kitchen; very clean and had everything we needed. Had an issue with the wifi, but contacted Cliff and he fixed it right away; definitely recommend this unit for a stay in DC.

We were able to take the Metro from Reagan National to the unit and then back to Reagan National when we departed (all on the yellow line); very easy and cost effective.

Fantastic stay in D.C.

  • 5 of 5

Our family, 4 adults, stayed 4 days in this great apt. It's quite large, and had wonderful amenities. We all recommend it highly. The location is perfect! 14th Street has every type of restaurant you could want, and Trader Joe's & Whole Foods are nearby. All the transit is close by too. We were out walking and dining every evening, it's a great safe place. Cliff was wonderful in providing us with all the needed info before we arrived, and while we were there. We'd definitely stay again. Thanks, Cliff!

A Great Time in DC

  • 4 of 5

The Heim Family traveled to DC to visit our daughter and her husband for the holidays and had a great time. We stayed in the 1717 Basement location and it was very nice. Held all 6 of us very comfortably with ample family space to spread out, play games and just celebrate the holidays together.
