First of all this is a perfect location with wonderful surrounding restaurants, parks, etc. in a very nice part of Washington DC. You certainly can walk to many local attractions depending upon how ambitious you are Not exactly close to a Metro Station, but for a family of 5 an Uber is more cost effective any way.
The amenities of the apartment complex itself are great (game room, coffee bar, security/concierge, roof deck, and pool, etc). The unit itself was clean and the beds were very comfortable. While it had certainly been cleaned prior to our arrival it lacked some deep cleaning (the bathroom vent was full of dust, come of the corners were dirty and the furniture/rugs showed signs of wear and tear. It was still very nice though and we felt comfortable to host a dinner or local friends for one night.
Unfortunately, we were told by our booking agent that this pool was open year round and so we booked it based on that fact alone after confirming with our agent multiple times of its year-round openness status. We were saddened (kids actually were devastated) to learn that it was only open Memorial Day to Labor Day, which I understand is standard in the industry but the exact reason why I had confirmed this fact.
Stay Alfred was very responsive when I called and offered to relocate us to a property that did have a year round pool, but we were already pretty settled in by this point. Clearly we were in DC to do activities other than swim and so this was not devastating to the adults in our party.
This property is a great balance if you are looking to get away from the traditional hotel setting for more space and a kitchen but not quite ready to stay in someone's personalized home. We had groceries delivered by Peapod and this saved us a ton of money on restaurants and allowed additional time for exploring and fun. The game room and coffee bar was a huge hit with my kiddos and made up for the pool not being open.
Luxury apartments with and excellent location, walking distance to all major attractions. The apartment is fully equipped and is extremely cosy and comfortable.
Very good accommodations. Could be excellent if rugs and furniture were clean. Many spots and stains that make it iffy and questionable about how the stains came about. Also, dryer was not working properly. Took 5 dry cycles of High heat to dry 2 sets of towels.
Loved the apartment! Nice place with plenty of room for the 3 of us. The building is great with a game room and a roof top pool (wasn't open yet for the season). Liked the neighborhood and a great location for seeing the sites. The only minor thing that I would improve on is to put a television in the second bedroom.
My family requires two hotel rooms and found that this apartment was a vastly more affordable option. It was FANTASTIC. The apartment is laid out really well and had everything that we could have wanted. It's walking distance to two different Metro Stops (although 4-6 blocks for each) and around the corner from some really great restaurants. Getting the car in and out is a little cumbersome, but who needs a car in the city??? Even the gym in the building is nice!! It made for a great Spring Break experience.
More than enough space for 4 people. Excellent location, quite neighborhood. Close to, Museums, restaurants, shops and an easy walk to the White House, about 15 minutes.
Had a wonderful stay.
Close to the convention center,
close to the national mall, walkable distance to the monument and the white house.
Great crew with quick response.
