This is the second Stay Alfred property we have enjoyed. The location was incredible. The property was on point, just as shown on the website. Comfy beds, nicely appointed. The AC great in the living room but not in the bedrooms. Fortunately, the unit came With one fan, which worked great in the warmer bedroom. Coincidentally, this room also cornered two major intersections, so the background noise of a fan helped in several ways. I would definitely stay here again!
We had a great week visiting so many sites in DC. This location is centrally located to the Capitol Building, Smithsonian Museums and White House. Even in March, when it was a little cool some days, we had a great time walking all around, and occassionally taking cabs for things further out. It was also a couple blocks from the Verizon Center if you're going to an event there. Tons of restaurants all around. The apartment was beautiful! Gelato right across the street (we went more than once). The beds and pillows were so comfortable. The girls loved the indoor pool, and if you want to use the sauna, turn it on before going out to the pool so it can warm up. The only draw back was the noise. It doesn't have sound dampening windows. We're not used to all the noise in a busy city (never saw a fire, but fire trucks with sirens going multiple times a day/night). There were multiple events at the Verizon Center while we were there, and it gets noisy when it lets out, but it doesn't last too long. Even with the noise, which I had heard about, I would book it right away again if I was going back!
We're surprised when we went into the apartment. It's big and clean at thegood location. Kids love this place, and next time we still gonna choose this place to stay. Really recommend.
The BEST location in DC. Walking distance to just about everything. Not to mention the literally dozens of restaurants within a couple of blocks. Apartment is spacious, and reasonably well outfitted for self-catering. It is in the middle of a busy neighborhood, so if you are a light sleeper, you might want to bring ear plugs. We turned on the (provided) fan each night, and heard nothing. Beds comfortable. Bathrooms were gigantic, and great to have two.
