Good value in safe neighborhood

Might be a bit far for some, but there are two nearby bus lines heading downtown, and shops/restaurants nearby on Wisconsin Ave. For the outdoorsy type, the Glover Archibold trail is adjacent to the building, and for the cyclist it's an 8 minute ride out of DC on MacArthur Ave into MD.

Great neighborhood - Quiet but close to city

4000 Mass is a great location for wanting to live in a quieter neighborhood, but also being close to the city. Close to American University for students. Parking is expensive if you choose to park in the garage, but plenty of street parking.

4000 Mass Ave is a great place to live

The floor plans are spacious. The property is secure and the community is welcoming (families, young professionals, some elderly, international mix). The leasing office is very accessible and usually responsive.
This is a full service apt bldg which hosts a breakfast cafe/lunch counter, small 7/11 type market, full service dry cleaner w/ wash-n-fold options, front dest clerk/package valet/bellhop. Bike rooms, extra storage and luggage storage are all available and included with the lease. Parking is an add on. So if you don't need it, you don't pay for it (they have 7 garages and outside parking).
I will say, noise travels easily and rugs are mandatory but bare feet or shoes on hardwood is what it is. There are 3 or 4 bus stops just outside, so the commute is quite convenient to all of DC. The new Giant on Macomb is near many restaurants, banking and boutiques; they are walkable. There's a farmers market at the corner during the warmer months--so fresh local produce is a nice bonus. Most people walk Nebraska Ave. to get to Tenleytown. There's no gym…but honestly--you'll be outside enjoying the grounds and the neighborhood/or you can just have your own equipment 'cuz you'll have the space. The National Cathedral is just our the window and also walkable!!
The bad thing about this place: only one set of elevators--so if you live at the end--you have to walk--but the leasing office is cognizant of this and they were able to give me us a parking spot next to the stairwell nearest our unit. Also there are several secure entrances, therefore the elevators aren't mandatory.
Overall--great place to live.

Cathedral Heights Reviews

This is a very residential area. It's about 7 minutes to Cathedral Commons, which has a Giant, CVS, some restaurants, and some boutique stores, but it still feels pretty isolated from the rest of DC.
I went into this a bit on my apartment review. I love living in an actual neighborhood. There's always kids and dogs running around so it feel super safe. I like the front yards, trees, and gardens - definitely doesn't give off the "concrete jungle" vibe. There's not a lot of traffic noise and everything is pretty well maintained. There's some gorgeous Embassies near by which are stunning to look at. Great area for jogging (if you're into that) and right by American without feeling like you live in a dorm.
It seems like if you live or work at AU, this is a great neighborhood for you. Also if you work on the N2/N4/N6 route and want to be sort of tucked-back into the semi-suburbs but won't be bothered by college kids, it's also a great neighborhood for that. Mass Ave South of campus is basically all apartments for a few blocks so that really is the neighborhood. Not that it's not a great neighborhood if you're not involved with AU, but since I went there, most of the people I know around here are affiliated with the school.
Nice suburban feel in the city. Definitely a safer place than most and generally convenient to other places with enough bus routes. In addition, there's never a problem with food as a nice walk around to a eatery is never out of the question.
Again, perfect for kids and dogs.
Very safe and lots of new restaurants popping up! Also very dog friendly. Walking distance to Giant.
The neighborhood here is beautiful with lots of trees, places to walk, and access to the Georgetown waterfront. There are a lot of families that live here and elderly people so it's a little farther from some of the night life in D.C. but if you are willing to split a ride with friends or hop on the bus it is very doable.

A note: although the neighborhood is pet friendly, the building does not allow pets.

Overall, it's beautiful here and a nice escape from the craziness of law school life.
It is a great neighborhood if you are going to American University, a short walk or bus ride to campus. They are starting to add more restaurants and shops nearby and its great that the new Giant and CVS opened by the Cathedral. If you have a car, you can certainly find parking and get to everything quickly.
