About this listing
Beautiful Historic Capitol Hill apartment with view of the Capitol Dome. One block from Capitol South Metro, Library of Congress, Capitol, Washington Monument, Smithsonian, Penn Ave bars and shopping and four blocks from Eastern Market.
Modern kitchen w/ stainless steel appliances, gas range stove/dishwasher and granite countertops comes with breakfast fixings for guest use.
Location, location, location! This apartment is located on a quiet historic district of Capitol Hill. Walk two blocks to Pennsylvania Ave for fine wine, dining, theater, bars and shopping and to the heart of the city, the U.S. Capitol.
Guests will be provided a cool, urban apartment complete with all kitchen amenities and breakfast fixings. Guests with cars will be provided with a guest parking pass (entire Capitol Hill area to include H St, Eastern Market and Union Station) and high speed internet.
I also provide a copy of Lonely Planet for Washington D.C. and a laminated street map.
Interaction with Guests
I will almost always be in the area or available by cell phone if guests need assistance. I will usually be available to turn over the key and show the place. If not, the key will be left in a lock box and guests can see themselves in. Check in and check out times are usually very flexible.
There are very few neighborhoods like this: It has the quiet feel of a family neighborhood where folks from all walks of life (and both sides of the aisle) take the time to say "hello" and "good morning".
Because of the location's proximity to the U.S. Capitol and large number of neighbors who are members of the House and Senate, there is a constant and visible police presence in the neighborhood at all hours. This is by far one of the nicest and safest areas of D.C.
This neighborhood is convenient to the Orange/Blue metro lines (Capitol South), bus routes, and taxi cabs are plenty one block away on Pennsylvania Ave. Union Station is approximately 1 mile/km walking (15 minutes).
