Why sally obrien chose Foggy Bottom

The Gowan House is an historic rowhouse in Foggy Bottom between 25th street and St. Paul's Church. The house was built in 1890 and has four floors. The apartment is about 700 square feet. We have central air conditioning and central heat and a fan is available for those who prefer to open the window. The apartment has security features and is on a safe street. The front door of the apartment is protected with two doors with deadbolt locks.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is perfect for visitors seeing the major sights in DC or for those attending meetings in downtown DC. We are located on the blue/orange/silver line metro with easy access to Dulles and Reagan Airports. We are within quick walking distance of shops, grocery stores, and restaurants. 25th Street is quiet and a nice place to walk in the evening on the way to Kennedy Center or LIsner Auditorium. We are within walking distance of the Lincoln Memorial and the Mall. The Flat is only a 7 minute walk to DC's only kosher restaurant.

Great space, even better location.

  • 5 of 5

Very easy access. We arrived late in the evening. Can't beat the location. We were able to walk easily to most everywhere in DC that you want to visit. The National Mall was only 15-20min away. Less than 2 bolcks to Shareride bikes, DC Metro, or Trader Joe's. We were very comfortable when in the apartment. We couldn't imagine staying anywhere else when visiting DC. Perfect for our family of 3. I highly recommend!

mixed review

  • 2 of 5

Apartment was large, clean and well located. Sally responded quickly when contacted.

Unfortunately had problems with blocked toilet for 3 out of 6 nights.

One sofa bed quite uncomfortable and the other had to keep retying the shoelace holding the springs in place at foot of bed.

Perfect Weekend in D.C.

  • 5 of 5

The location of the unit was great. I was traveling with my 89 year old mother and being on the ground level was just what we needed. The unit was as advertised. I would stay again.

What a great place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying in this flat and couldn't have ask for a better location. It's about a five minute walk to the Metro in one direction and Trader Joe's in another. We didn't know how it'd work out sleeping 4 adults with only the one bedroom but the pull out couch ended up easily being comfortable enough for a good nights rest after full days of sightseeing. The opportunity to leave our luggage in the entryway on our arrival and departure days was great since we arrived on an early flight and flew out on an evening flight. We would definitely (and already have) recommend this place to others visiting DC.

We are located in a residential enclave in downtown Washington DC. Perfect for sightseeing or business trips to the World Bank, IMF, GW University, State Department, embassies and US Institute of Peace. Our guests often bike or walk to Washington Harbor, Rock Creek Park, the Washington Mall, C&O Canal. All of the Smithsonian Museums are easily accessible by Metro or Circulator Bus, and the Textile Museum and Washingtonia Museum just a 10 minute walk. The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts is a 14 minute walk (buses also available).

Because this house is in a quiet neighborhood we ask guests to refrain from loud music after 10pm.
