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.

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.

Very cozy and awesome location😍

  • 5 of 5

We were very pleased with our stay. Gene, the owner, couldn't have been more accommodating. When we arrived, the keurig was missing. After a quick message to him, he arranged for one to be placed in the room. Also, he allowed us a late checkout due to our flight time being changed. The location was awesome-just a short walk to all the most desirable sights. His tips on food were spot on as well. We utilized this information several times during our stay. The only thing I would change is to maybe have a curtain or shade over the bathroom window as the sun was blinding mid-morning. However, that's certainly was no show stopper for us. If the opportunity presents itself for is to visit D.C. Again, we will certainly try and stay here again.

Good location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved being in the heart of DC! The apartment was very comfortable with everything we needed. Wish we could have booked the parking space, but Union Station parking worked out and was an interesting place to visit too. Loved walking in the evenings around the Supreme Court, Capital, etc. and walking to St. Joseph's for Mass. We like historic neighbourhoods - it reminded us of our stay in Paris - and being part of the local culture.

Small but great location

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is a very small studio but we expected that in an older city like DC. We were able to prepare breakfast before we went out for the day which was very nice. We picked this place for the off street parking. There are restaurants within easy walking distance so we never had to move the car and never felt unsafe walking.

Great location and very clean

  • 4 of 5

We have stayed in a couple of the apartments in the building now, and have been happy both times. The location is fantastic - easy walking distance to great restaurants and the Metro. And the apartments are very clean. The area is also quiet, and there is one parking spot you can reserve if you are driving, which is a big plus in D.C.!!! I'm sure we will stay here again!
