Great place for students with small pets

Great apartment over all. Great for small pets, maintenance always comes the same day you call (if you call in the morning), has a rooftop with sun chairs and grills.

Great place for young students/professionals

Maintenance has always been punctual, the common areas are kept consistently clean, sound isn’t an issue when compared to similar apartments, and package reception is simple and secure. Great place for small pets as well.

Quiet and Roomy

The maintenance team is not very quick to respond when something breaks. Other than that, it’s a great apartment. The walls are pretty thick, so I rarely here neighbors. Although I do hear a lot of sirens since we are so close to the hospital. Also my studio is extremely spacious.

housing review

Overall the apartment is nice but the management can be unhelpful and rude. It is also overpriced, but a great location makes it worth it for one year. I do not plan on staying longer than that however because the price is not worth it once I can move.

Excellent place to live. The only downside is the distance from grocery/metro

Great location but facilities could use some work

Potomac Park is located in a great location downtown, but the facilities are in sore need of an update. The kitchen in my unit has no ventilation and there is no smoke detector available in the kitchen in case of a fire. There are only windows in the bedroom areas and there are no windows in the living room and kitchen. The kitchen facilities are outdated and look like they haven't been updated in 20 years. Bathroom facilities are also outdated and one of the faucets in my bathroom has a leak that will not stop. There is no gym in the unit, but it is located close to several gyms in the area if you want to work out. There is a great rooftop space that can be used for entertaining with a view of the Washington Monument. It's a great place to watch the 4th of July fireworks if you want to escape the crowds on the National Mall. The building is pretty quiet for its downtown location and I haven't had to file any noise complaints. Overall, the building has a great location but the units need to be better maintained.

Alright apartment

The location cannot be beat! But the apartment is outdated. There was a small roach problem for a few weeks before the apartment got rid of them. Every so often my kitchen sink backs up all over my kitchen because of upstairs neighbors putting food down their drain. The worst part though is on the first floor, cigarette smoke comes in through the space under the heater/AC and there is nothing the complex will do about it.

Love this area, right near Logan Circle and 14th street which has so much good food and nightlife!
Amazing neighborhood. Close to GW and close to so much good food and nice restaurants.
Sometimes noisy, but the front desk quickly deal with it if you ask
Great, Safe neighborhood with great food and close to campus.
Foggy Bottom/West End are great for 1Ls -- you will get to know the area around school and you will be conveniently within a few blocks of GW. There are a lot of food options, but night life is lacking (though you're a short walk to DuPont and Georgetown). There are plenty of busses and metros around.
Good only in the sense that it is near the school, that you can receive warnings from the school and D.C. (if signing up), that you can be assured of safety generally even if coming in late due to pulling off night studies in the library. However, noise levels are high, so you can hardly study indoors at home because of people wanting to earn money in exchange for their loud and terrible performances. This means that you may ultimately end up outside for work or rest during morning/afternoon. Noise in the evening can be high too due to some people having gone drunk. Noise (some loud trucks and mostly machine sounds) and lights can be too much for sleeping deeply.
It's really only convenient because of how close the law school is. Otherwise, I would not live here. Definitely a business/corporate area that shuts down on the weekends. Not a lot of options for going out to eat unless it's either overpriced or fast food. The only grocery store that's walking distance is Whole Foods, which I personally hate shopping at.
The Aston is the furthest GW housing from the campus, so we had to walk more than any other student to get to class. We are also the furthest away from any Metro station, but still not considerably far when you look at the big picture. There are grocery stores, bars, and restaurants nearby which is a perk, but it is pretty noisy around here. But I guess that's anywhere in Downtown DC. There are always cars honking, ambulance sirens, etc. But the area seems pretty safe.
