Nicely located near the Convention Center with great restaurants, coffee bars and nightlife within easy walking distance. Not far to the METRO stop either. Clean, comfortable and quiet. The Brothers give great advice on what to see and do in the area!

Very clean and convenient spot near the city center. The hosts provide clear directions as well as a nearly exhaustive list of nearby restaurants and sights.

Great place to stay! The listing is in a great neighborhood, which is close to about anything you need, but still retains it's quiet nature. The hosts are incredibly responsive. Check in was a total breeze, and the listing is just as described. I will certainly try to stay again on my next visit to D.C.
