I hope that you will have a pleasant experience staying at Sweet Suite on 7th Street on Capitol Hill.
I have nothing but positive things to say about our stay at the Sweet Suite! Charlotte thought of everything- from Kleenex to plastic wrap and everything in between! She was super responsive if we had questions, and the location was central to everything we needed. The apartment was immaculate and perfect for a family of 4. We will definitely stay here on our next trip to DC!
The apartment is clean and tidy. The owner is friendly and efficient to respond our needs. The location is good and is closed to most attractions.
Every host should take notes from Charlotte. The apartment was exactly as described -- well-located and spacious, and with pretty much every amenity you could ask for, including a washer/dryer. Charlotte also left out snacks, water, and recommendations for places to eat and drink in the area. It was super easy to check in, and Charlotte was communicative throughout. I'd 120% come again!
Charlotte, our host, was very welcoming and accessible. The suite is exactly as described: separate bedroom with queen, kitchen and living area with queen murphy bed. The suite was nicely decorated, very clean, and the kitchen very well supplied. The extra touches--Keurig coffee maker with ample coffee packs, oatmeal, cereal bars, and chocolates, etc.--put it over the top. lMoreover, the suite is located in an excellent neighborhood that is an ideal launching pad for exploring the DC area. Each day, my wife, son and I walked the mile or so to the National Mall and capital--although after one long day at the mall we taxied back home. Nice restaurants close by. Overall, a great value and highly recommended!
Washington is a great city and staying at Charlotte's comfortable suite certainly enhanced our stay. It was so nice after a long day's touring to be able to come home and relax. A small issue with the coffee machine was solved immediately without any fuss. One could feel Charlotte was discreet but present and efficient when needed. Thank you Charlotte
This suit is really nice! It contains everything and it is very convenient. The location is also great, I walked to Union Station, the Library of Congress and the metro bus station is not far from it. I highly recommend you choose this sweet suit if you will go to DC.
I am a professional Realtor and CRNA. I have lived on Capitol Hill-DC for 25 years. It is a dynamic city with endless activities everyday of the year! DC has been a wonderful city to raise my family. Now that the kids are grown, I have decided to open my apartment to Air BnB guests. Sweet Suite on 7th Street is designed for your total comfort! My hope is that you enjoy your visit to DC and when you are finished with your day of tourism or work, you can return to Sweet Suite on 7th Street, REST and RELAX in a clean and well appointed apartment. The hope is that you have a worry free and comfortable stay and will enjoy Sweet Suite as you would your own home. Welcome to DC!
