Very nice apartment for our (email hidden)d the roof top deck was an awesome view! First time we did a rental for this type of vacation and working with Seamless was "seamless". Woodward building is a great location for a DC trip and close to all the major attractions, the Metro, etc.
Changed the price from the advertised price (property apparently unavailable). The pictures are not reflective of the specific property, but generally looked right.
there were issues in getting keys, and also in hot water. Internet was also flaky at times.
overall, not terribly impressed compared to another property I stayed at.
location was good.
Eric is clearly mistaken. We did NOT change the "advertised" price.
Eric submitted his reservation directly. The AirBNB system did not calculate the required 14.5% DC hotel tax in his total. To this end, we had to decline.
We sent Eric an e-mail explaining the decline and told him we would send a special offer that would include the tax. He received the EXACT same room rate + 14.5% DC hotel tax.
Please note that our property listing says: "NOTE: 14.5% DC hotel tax will be added to rental charge at time of booking."
Mr. Peers is correct, when he says the Concierge did not find his keys immediately. There was a new, relief Concierge on duty when Eric arrived. When keys were not found, Mr. Peers called us from the front desk and we were able to walk the new Concierge through finding the keys. This took 10-minutes too long for my liking...but clearly not 30-minutes.
Last, Mr. Peers did not let us or the front desk know that the water temp was not hot enough. If the guest had let the front desk, the Customer Service Line or SeamlessTransition know of the problem, the on-site building engineer would have addressed the issue immediately. But, they can't fix a problem they don't know exists.
I know travel is stressful and any issue is magnified. However, we hope travelers will render factual reviews as the entire AirBNB community is reliant on travelers to provide accurate information about a property, which was not the case in this review.
Our communication with Seamless was thorough and efficient. The apartment was perfect for our stay in DC and was in pristine condition. I would definitely recommend working with them if you're looking for corporate housing. They were great!
We stayed in Apartment 717 at the Woodward Building in early April 2014. Great location with easy access to all of the sites. Located only 1 1/2 blocks from White House and from McPherson Square Metro Station. Apartment was perfect size for family of 4 with 2 bedrooms and overall good layout. Check-in and check-out process was very easy - literally took 1 minute. Apartment was clean and had the basic utensils and toiletries in place. This is a Corporate type of rental so while the furnishings were nice - it was a little sterile. There are no basic food goods in the kitchen (such as salt & pepper, sugar, oil, etc) so will need to do some basic shopping right when you arrive. There was one packet of laundry detergent and 1 packet of automatic dishwashing detergent which was helpful. Overall a great home base for our vacation. We had no issues during our stay. The only issue we had was before our arrival when I called the week before our trip. I had called on a Saturday and reached an Answering Service. The person I spoke with was very rude. I brought this up with Kitty at Seemless and she answered my questions right away on the following Monday - so good recovery from poor Customer Service with their answering service.
Great vacation overall!
I had stayed here once before and this time was just as exceptional. I travel to DC for business so I don't really have to much time for last minute (email hidden)ne here, check-in and check-out is simple & quick.
The building staff was friendly and more than willing to assist when I had questions. Location is central, close to parking lot and metro stations. Apartment is clean/well equipped, big living room, and bedrooms each have their private/spacious bathrooms.
Just downstairs is a great restaurant called Woodward Table with quality food and a very nice wine list.
I look forward to booking here again next month when I'm down again.
