About this listing
Recently renovated apartment overlooks the cascading fountains of Meridian Park. The studio is large and centrally located. One block to the U Street Corridor and three blocks to Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle. White House is a quick 15 minute walk!
The perfect retreat in the heart of DC. Just renovated in 2013, the apartment has granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and a brand new kitchen and bath. More than just a plain old studio, there is a separate kitchen with a breakfast buffet and an entirely separate vanity and dressing area with a huge closet and an oversized full length wall mirror. You also get the incredible view of Meridian Park from the large windows that line the apartment. The White House, National Mall and most monuments are a quick 20 minute walk.
Everything you need for a comfortable stay is included in the price. Expect a cozy place to come home to and a good night of sleep.

Interaction with Guests
Check-In. You are free to arrive whenever you like so long as it is after 3:00 p.m. You will receive a number code once you book and use that to get into the apartment. I respect your privacy but am always available by phone, text, email or Airbnb message if you need anything.
The Park. Meridian Park is the Central Park of DC. An urban park like no other, it's got a huge cascading fountain and 12 acres of green trees and unique sculptures right in the middle of the city.
Central Location. Even better is you are central to 3 of the best areas in DC. Walk one block east and you are right in the bustling U Street Corridor, a few blocks west and you are on 18th street in Adams Morgan. Go south a few blocks and you are right at Dupont Circle. Walk north and you are in Columbia Heights. I love this neighborhood because it is quiet and residential, but still close to all the action.
Safety. This is one of the safest areas of DC. Take caution as you would in any city. Most of NW is pretty safe but this area is a lot more established than some of the up and coming neighborhoods.
Every form of transportation is an option.
Parking? There is only street parking available, but it is FREE. A rarity in DC (or any city), the street next to the apartment is unmetered and there are always spots available on W street (between 15th and 16th). You will even be able to see your car from the window of the unit. The only restriction is a street cleaning on Monday mornings meaning you would have to move it out of the space for about 1/2 hour.
Rental Car? There are 2 on-site Enterprise vehicles in the building's parking lot available to rent. Simply contact Enterprise and they will set it up for you, you can pick up a car from right in front of the building and drop it off in the same spot when you are done. There are also two Zipcar spaces with a similar set up.
Bikeshare? Super easy. There are 3 pickup locations within a block of the building. You can rent a bike for $7/day or get a 3 day pass for $15.
Metro? The Green and Yellow lines are a 3 block walk from the unit. There are Smart Cards in the apartment for you to use, simply take the card with you when you head out for the day and you can charge it at any metro station using a debit card, credit card or cash.
Bus? There is a bus stop less than a block away and 4 different bus lines are available for pick up every 7-10 minutes. You can get straight downtown to the National Mall in about 10-15 minutes.
There are maps of the city and transit information in the apartment.
Other Things to Note
I am friendly, laid back and accommodating. My guests are always happy with my recommendations so definitely don't hesitate to ask. I know the city well. I am well-organized and always available for questions.
I use really nice products in the apartment and only use high end sheets and towels. I guarantee you will be nice and comfortable.
Thanks for looking :)
My philosophy when I travel is to be kind and rewind. The only thing I ask is that you throw out the trash (trash chute is right out the door to the right near the elevators) and put the dirty linens into a pile; My cleaners always appreciate a little tidying up, but you don't need to scrub the floor. You're either here on vacation or on business right? Take a load off.
