Booked the ground floor apartment. Apartment itself is very decent - plenty of room for 2 adults, 2 teens on 3 night stay - living area w/ small dining table, W/D, small kitchen, bedroom and (tight) bath - central A/C. In general, furnishings a bit tired, but not objectionable and nicely decorated. Backyard outdoor sitting area is nice in the evening with wine and lightning bug show. Don't let the initial "walk up" put you off - apartment is fine, however, photos of exterior on web site taken in better times.
Walked to local Whole Foods (1.5 blocks west), for breakfast foods, snacks, wine, etc... very convenient. Restaurant area at Q and 14th is up and coming. Nearby El Centro and Stoney's is good for value / food.
A couple of other items to mention: 1) time to upgrade beddings, fold-out mattresses in particular 2) Subway stop is a long 4 blocks north, just be aware.
