"The location of this "iconic apartment" is less than two blocks from the Foggy Bottom-GWU Metro which is served by three lines, blue, orange, and silver. Also in the immediate neighborhood is an enormous Whole Foods, numerous wonderful restaurants serving healthy foods, a CVS, a Circulator Bus stop, and the GWU campus. We happened to run into a situation requiring emergent medical care, and the GWU ER/Urgent Care facility was right there. Jose Andres' Beefsteak Restaurant with its innovative bowls of steamed vegetables and grains was a real treat. We have nothing like that at home. As well, about a minute away, there is an excellent small fine dining restaurant in The River Inn. Both an Episcopalian and Roman Catholic church are less than five minutes' walk. We are senior citizens and appreciated the proximity of all of these services. As well, the owner of the apartment lives around the corner and was extremely helpful to us. The apartment itself is comfortable with a small living room and kitchen-dining room and a separate bedroom. Quality mattresses and two excellent flat-screen Infinity service TVs. We were there in winter, but there is a small patio for visitors during warmer weather. The house was built in 1881; do not expect a shell that looks inside like a 21st century sleek condo. Entry and exit are with a provided coded lock and we felt very safe. There were only a couple of steps leading to the front door.The apartment is clean and everything, including the provided landline phones works. There is good light for reading.We did no cooking while there, but the small stove appears to be new . We will definitely recommend this choice to friends visiting D.C. As Senior citizens, we appreciated the real proximity of services located in a beautiful, quiet, residential area."
