We are in North Georgetown/ Glover Park which is a neighborhood in northwest Washington, D.C., about a half mile north of Georgetown and just west of the United States Naval Observatory and Number One Observatory Circle (the Vice President's mansion).
We are two blocks to the National Cathedral and Embassy Row, and Rockcreek Park . We are also walking distance to American and Georgetown universities. This is the safest and for me the most beautiful part of Washington, D.C.
Bus stop takes you to metro or anywhere downtown, stops in front of the place. Nearest metro - Woodly Park - 15 -20 min walk. Uber X cars are $7-15 to most places downtown and the Mall. Best way to travel for 2+ people around the city. Taxis are also plentiful if you step outside.
