Best apt I've lived in

Apartments are very nice, good size for one person. Management responds to any issues extremely quickly (usually within hours), though there rarely are any. Property is very safe and secure - the security guard on site knows every resident. Walls are pretty thick - I very rarely hear my neighbors. Building is pretty new, so everything is in good shape. Some apartments, including mine, have floor to ceiling corner windows, which make the apartments very bright and feel much larger than they are. Tons of storage space. Great area for young people to live in (bars, restaurants, public transport, etc.).

Great building, location, management

The Drake is a phenomenal building. The entire building is basically brand new, and each apartment has modern appliances and furnishings. The common areas, including a gym, study room, rooftop, and lounge are fantastic. The management team works very hard and does a great job maintaining the building.

Great!

I've lived here for almost 6 months. The building is brand new and the apartments have all of the bells and whistles you would want-- ice maker, dishwasher, garbage disposal, built-in microwave, hardwoods, quiet drawers, W/D in-unit. The common areas are well-maintained. Management is friendly and responsive.

Fantastic place to live

The Drake is a brand new building in Dupont Circle and looks beautiful. Like most new luxury apartments in DC, The Drake comes with tons of great community amenities like a rooftop deck with a griling stations and a fantastic gym (lots of treadmills, ellipticals, and a good set of free weights). The views from the roof are fantastic and the community lounge is great for entertaining guests. Surprisingly, management has been really friendly so far! Lastly, I really love living in Dupont Circle. The location has tons of great bars and restaurants nearby and is really close to the Dupont Circle Metro stop.

Dupont Circle Reviews

Good location. Walking distance to GW campus (good because we are GW students) but also close to Dupont. Good metro access for both red line and orange/blue/silver line
Dupont and 14th street have a lot to offer in terms of bars, restaurants, and nightlife. There are multiple grocery stores nearby and easy access to nearly everything.
DuPont is the best for Gtown students! Close to the GUTS bus and easy access to campus, but also close to the more happening parts of the city.
So many good bars, can get crowded and noisy but living a couple blocks off the circle is perfect. Easy shuttle to campus.
Very safe neighborhood to live in. Tons of restaurants and bars nearby.
The neighborhood is excellent - just south of DuPont Circle. There are great restaurants and bars within walking distance, and the building is only two blocks from the red line metro. It's also walking distance from Foggy Bottom, Adams Morgan, and Georgetown.
DuPont Circle is the place to live if you want to get the full D.C. experience while you live here. It's pricey, but you can 100% live there without any issue on the loans from the school.
Lovely combination of downtown offices, restaurants and bars, and residential buildings and houses. A couple of blocks from Dupont Circle and the metro stations there.
