                            Great location to Metro. Very nice neighborhood. Parking pass was nice. I was able to drop the kids off and park. Which equals less complaining. We did not get towed but it could easily happen. Pay close attention to signs. They are tricky. The apartment had plenty of room. Very clean. Everything was as advertised. Would stay there again.

                            Lois was a wonderful host! The apt was quiet and comfortable, with everything I needed including washer/dryer and laundry detergent! It was very close and convenient to metro and the convention center. Several very good restaurants within walking distance as well. Would most certainly stay again!

                            The property is just as described. My husband and I had a comfortable stay with our toddler and dog with us. There were people on the floor above was but the noise was not loud. My husband was working most of time time but I found it easy to walk the child and the dog to some great restaurants and parks around. Very minimal street noise in the apartment. The apartment itself was very well kept and clean. Lois is a great manager and answered all questions easily and without delays.

                            My family and grandparents couldn't have asked for a more convenient location to stay while visiting Washington DC. It was located just a short walk to the Metro and only a few stops to the Smithsonian and monuments.The apt itself is located on a busy street but we did not find the noise bothersome. The apt is beautifully furnished and very modern including cable and wifi. The seven of us did not fill crowded and the beds were very comfortable. The only down side is that if you are planning to cook most of your meals there is not a large grocery store nearby. If you have a car it is not a far drive.

                            We stayed in this rental during spring break, two adults and two children. Arrived on Saturday afternoon, and had no problem getting the keys. The location is very convenient to the tourist spots, a 5 minute walk to the green/yellow Metro rail station and the bus stop is a few steps from the front door. The rental is on the bottom floor of a 3-story rowhouse. The pictures do a good job showing what you get. After returning from longs days at the museums, there was plenty of room to spread out. This is located in an urban neighborhood with limited services. The only retail stores within 1/4 mile are a CVS drugstore and a few gas stations. The nearest grocery store is 1 mile away near DuPont Circle. There are several restaurants nearby (a Thai place is on the bottom level of a rowhouse 4 doors down the street). The foot traffic was pretty constant during the day, but we were never concerned about our safety. The one drawback was the street noise – Howard University Hospital is a few blocks to the north and it seemed like every ambulance in the city travels on Florida Avenue. Saturday night was the worst; there must have been a siren every5-10 minutes throughout the night. It was much quieter on the weeknights. The noise was most noticeable in the living room, which is closest to the street, but was much quieter in the bedroom. Our 11-year old slept soundly on the sleep sofa, so it wasn’t intolerable. We occasionally heard footsteps from the unit above, but it was drowned out by the street noise. On arrival we had a minor problem with the dishwasher. A repairman was sent to investigate and solved the problem quickly. Overall, we would rent this unit again. The street noise was a minor inconvenience, which was offset by the reasonable price. We received our deposit within a few days after returning home.

                            This apartment was just what we needed for our family visit to DC. The apartment was VERY CLEAN which is a big deal to me. It's a beautiful unit on the inside and outside. Free parking space too! The unit is a block or so from the metro station and within walking distance of several restaurants, a drugstore, a theatre, etc. We will definitely stay here again!

                          • Nearest Train: METRO Train at 0.2 Miles
                           

                          Owner info

                          About the owner: The reason I was so attracted to this home is LOCATION! It is extremely close to the HUB of activities at Washington DC's METRO CENTER. This home is literally ONLY Two (2) Metro Stops from METRO Center - the Hub of all the exciting museums and places of attraction in the Nation's Capitol City.

                          Why the Owner Chose LeDroit Park:
                          Again, the reason this property is the one to rent is because of three things: 1. Location 2. Location 3. Location! This home provides walking access to The Arts District-U Street, Shaw and Logan Circle. You can Jazz it up at the Bohemian Cave or you can feast on half smokes and hot dogs at Ben's Chili Bowl.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                          The most unique benefit is that the metro train is steps away from the home. Upon boarding the train, please do not sit, because no sooner you sit it is time to get up (in just two short stops) and depart the train at 'METRO CENTER.' At METRO CENTER you have numerous exciting places to visit. To name just a few: Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, Ford's Threater, The International Spy Museum, The American Art Museum, the National Portrait Gallery, The American Immigration Law Foundation, The great and exciting neighborhood of Penn Quarter, the Navy Memorial and multiple other places of interest.
