After Georgetown to the west, Capitol Hill is Washington's oldest neighborhood. In its earliest days, most of the residents were members of Congress who lived in boarding houses and dormitories surrounding the Capitol. As the neighborhood evolved, row houses replaced boarding houses and the Hill began to grow as a neighborhood filled with families, as well as Washington's who's who. As you walk around this stately neighborhood, don't be surprised if you see faces you've seen in the news. A number of senators and representatives make their home on the Hill.

In addition to the U.S. Capitol, the Hill includes other significant American landmarks such as the U.S. Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, the Folger Shakespeare Library, Union Station, the U.S. Marine Corps Barracks, the Washington Naval Yard, Congressional Cemetery, Lincoln Park, and the Eastern Market. All of these sights are within easy walking distance and most are Metro-accessible. Just down the hill from the Capitol is the National Mall with all of the monuments and memorials iconic to Washington, as well as more than 10 museums and galleries of art and artifacts.

To the east of the Capitol is the Eastern Market—one of the only remaining merchant markets left in Washington. While the market bustles during the week, it is on the weekends that it acquires its character and charm as residents from all over the city and visitors from all over the world come to the market to enjoy breakfast; purchase fresh meats, produce, and breads; stroll through the adjacent flea market; and browse the latest art and jewelry crafted by local artists and artisans.

During the spring and summer months, a visit to the U.S. Marine Corps Barracks at 8th and I Streets SE will allow you to see the Marine Corps Silent Drill Team in action. This 24-man rifle platoon performs precision maneuvers with their 10.5 lb M-1 Garand rifles with fixed bayonets.

Over at the U.S. Capitol, the newly opened visitor's center allows visitors to experience the Capitol from the ground up. The center features several state statues in Emancipation Hall and a museum that chronicles the history of the U.S. Capitol from its cornerstone laying in 1789 by George Washington to the present day. Tickets for the Senate and House galleries are available here.

The Library of Congress' Jefferson Building, just across the street from the Capitol, is the world's largest repository of books and media in the world. The building is open to the public and the Renaissance and classical art are breathtaking.

These and other sites make staying on Capitol Hill a must if you're visiting Washington on business or for pleasure.

About Allen

The redhead next to me is my wife Ana.

We have 2 daughters who are grown and are on their own ( not really, if you are a parent you know) and a 14 pound Schnoodle ( he thinks he is a giant). We have been living in the DC metro area for about 36 years and absolutely love it. Washington DC is a beautiful city, it really is and for people coming here to spend their vacations or attend conferences, weddings, funerals (The Arlington Cemetery), graduations, sight seeing, festivals etc. etc. there isn't any city that offers so much.

I manage the properties and Ana tells me what to do (!!!) We are a great team and enjoy doing what we do.

Allen purchased this townhome in 1987

Convenient and comfortable

  • 4 of 5

I traveled with 6 teenagers and this worked so well for us. Allen is the best owner I've ever rented from. He immediately responded to me and was a master problem solver so our vacation didn't miss a beat. Transferring keys, check in and out was easy, easy, easy! Take a walk down to 8th street and check out all the great restaurants!

Nice spot near Metro

We were 2 families and this was a great spot to conquer the city from. Easy owners to work with, too.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the location. Everything was provided for the kitchen and towels. Great area that we could walk around and get to all the sites. We used the subway system which was also close. The owner had information in the house to help. I would highly recommend this place.

We loved this property

  • 5 of 5

This property was as advertised. We were 5 ladies on a "girls vacation" and were very impressed with this home. Bedrooms were comfortable (back one was a little small but this is a row house), living space and kitchen were very spacious and well appointed. Location was great, very close to metro, grocery and restaurants and shops on Barracks Row. We felt perfectly safe the whole time and I was in the front bedroom and was never bothered by any excessive noise from across the street. The back patio area was a plus. Allen responded to any questions we had within minutes. We would highly recommend this property.

Clean, comfortable stay for our family of 5!

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at this location for a family vacation to DC and loved the property. It's situated about 1 long block from the Metro which makes a perfect jumping off point for all the tourist sites. We parked our car in the off street parking offered at this property and never got back in the car until we left. The house was clean and comfortable with the three bedrooms upstairs with one shared bathroom on that floor and an additional full bathroom on the main floor with the dining room, living room, and kitchen. The backyard area would have been nice for a cookout as well but we ate out for dinners. Kitchen had all we needed to have breakfast each morning and the occasional meal. Living room had a nice TV with an attached Blu ray / DVD player the kids used to watch movies on. We could have used the pull out couch in the living room also if we had more people. Bedrooms were large enough and the master had plenty of space. Upstairs bath had a combo shower/bath but the tub was a Jacuzzi tub which was helpful after walking to see all the monuments. Downstairs is a stand up shower.

I do want to call out specifically that the owner was very accommodating to us. Not only did he allow us to check in early but we also left our little girls toiletries kit (it had her name on it and was special to her) and the owner mailed it to us after we had left. Extra, Extra points there for making our little girls day! I would definitely stay at this location again if in the DC area.
