I hope that you will have a pleasant experience staying at Sweet Suite on 7th Street on Capitol Hill.
The sweet suite was exactly as pictured, clean and well-appointed. Charlotte has clearly paid attention to detail (why doesn't every AirBnB have Kleenex!). The kitchen was particularly well-stocked with cooking equipment, etc., perfect for those who need to prepare meals. Charlotte was very responsive and easy to communicate with. Thanks for the easy stay!
Charlotte was an amazing host! The space was absolutely perfectly maintained. The space itself is very nice and comfortable. Excellent amenities, and very good communication about how to use the space and what to do and see in the area. Could not have asked for a better host, and she was extremely kind when we had a travel problem. Thank you so much for a wonderful time!
We had a lovely stay at the Sweet Suite. It was a cold weekend in DC, and we (two adults and two children, ages 9 and 11) spent more time in the apartment than we anticipated, but we were very comfortable and had plenty of room. I was skeptical of that murphy bed, but we slept really well in it, and Charlotte provided us with plenty of pillows and cozy blankets. The amenities in the bathroom are top notch, and the kitchen is fully equipped. It was an easy walk to the mall, even in the bitter cold, and we never had any trouble parking. The parking permit was great to have, and we always got a spot right in front of the apartment. Charlotte is very warm and friendly, and was responsive to one small problem we had with the cable (which was a neighborhood issue.) We would definitely come back!
We stayed with 3 persons in this apartment. First of all the apartment was more than we needed: 2 great beds, very clean, big, cosy.... It was located in a great area: nice and calm but also in walking distance to the city and the central station/metro. Charlotte really thought about everything: there were some snacks in the house, maps and information about the city, metro cards, shower gel, everything and more you need in the kitchen... This is really the perfect place to stay in Washington. Moreover Charlotte is really friendly. If you need anything, you can just contact her, if not, she does not bother you.
The only thing that is a bit weird for Europeans that there's not a dining table. But the counter is big enough to eat with 4 or 5 persons.
A clean, quiet space with an incredible host who communicated throughout and was always available. If we come back then we are staying here!
We greatly enjoyed our stay and the apartment! It was a great location and very convenient to explore DC. The apartment was immaculate and Charlotte was a great host thinking of everything to make our stay very accommodating. We would love to visit again and highly recommend!
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!
