“Great Location and Affordable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

It was wonderful having our our little apartment for the same price (or less) than a hotel room. The staff told us where we could find a grocery store so we could use our kitchen. The washer/dryer made packing easier. Didn't have to pay for extra suitcase. The building was just 3-4 blocks from the Metro Rail System stop. The Presidential monuments were all within walking distance, Watergate could be viewed off our balcony and Kennedy Center right next to it! The only draw back was that it was near the hospital and could hear ambulances in evening and nights but seemed to stop by midnight. I felt safe there.

Room Tip: Gym with pool located across the street.

Our family of 4 stayed at the Remington in late October 2011 for our Fall Break from a Wednesday night departing on Sunday afternoon. I was surprised to discover how expensive DC hotels were---worse than NYC--and I couldn't find any deals. I went to VRBO.com to see if we could find a condo or apartment suitable for a family who didn't want to break the budget with an extended visit to DC. The Remington is essentially an apartment building in the Watergate area just a few blocks from 2 Metro stops, a Whole Foods grocery store and the George Washington University campus. My impression was that the building is a mix of residents and short- and long-term rentals. We booked a 1-bedroom condo for 5 nights with tax plus a $75 cleaning fee for $850 which by DC standards was a steal. The apartment was very nicely decorated and immaculate. The full kitchen was stocked with all the essentials to cook and eat at the apartment for a family of 4 (plates, cutlery, pots and pans, frig, stove, microwave, frig, wine glasses, etc.). The apartment also had a washer and dryer. We requested a rollaway (no charge) for our daughter and our son slept on the hideabed couch which was not the best, unfortunately. The neighborhood is clean, safe, beautiful and easily accessible to drive or take the metro around the city with parking on the street. You can quickly get into and out of the Mall and surrounding tourist destinations without wasting a lot of time. We elected not to eat at any of the nearby restaurants because by the end of the day the kids just wanted a light dinner and to relax in front of the TV. The building requires keys to get in and there are few steps up to the elevator level from the front lobby. There's also a small work-out facility which we didn't use. The staff were very flexible in letting us check out a little later the final day in order to leave our luggage in the room before catching our late afternoon flight. All in all, an ideal choice for our family.

The Remington was a real find! We were looking for a hotel room at the last minute that could accommodate four people, only three of whom were related. So, we wanted a separate bedroom and a bathroom in a shared space rather than in the bedroom. Not easy to find in DC, unless you want to spend $400 a night!

We found The Remington on VRBO. It is a small apartment building (50 units) in the Foggy Bottom historic district. What a great location! It's only a 10-minute walk to the Metro and walking distance to the Lincoln and Vietnam memorials, and to the Kennedy Center. For you history buffs, it's across the street from the Watergate complex. The per-night rate and parking fees were far lower than comparable hotel rooms. (The DoubleTree is in the same neighborhood.) In all, we spent about $223 a night, including the 14.5 percent city tax and parking.

You can request a roll-away bed at no cost in addition to the pull-out sofa. (I must say, though, that the sofa bed was pretty awful. We asked for extra blankets to cushion the bars.) The kitchen is useful for breakfasts and simple meals. For groceries, there's a Whole Foods two blocks away. There are many inexpensive eateries nearby, including a Dunkin' Donuts and a Pot Belly sandwich place, because you're in the middle of George Washington University. Also for no charge, you can get passes to the GWU Lerner Fitness Center, which is steps from the building. I used a pass to swim in its lap pool.

The office staff is professional, pleasant and accommodating. If anything is amiss, Ken is dispatched immediately to assist you. Thank you, Ken -- the place couldn't survive without you! I've left a more complete review of our trip in a Trip List, "Washington, DC, with teens." We couldn't have asked for anything more!

Room Tip: The building is in a city and next to the GWU hospital, so there's street noise. We were on the...
