Very Pet Friendly

The location and amenities are great. My favorite thing about this place is that its pet friendly. There is an initial deposit, but no monthly pet rent like other buildings near-by. The only thing I don't like is the lack of sunlight. Our living space and bedroom both have a window, but the bedroom window is small and does not get direct light.

First-Rate Building in a Great Location

I was hesitant at first when my girlfriend decided she wanted to leave Logan Circle and move here, but she was right! It is a newly constructed building with all the amenities you would expect (or want). And the location is sneaky-good - a short walk to everything! I barely use any form of public transit anymore, and don't own a car.

Great location & amenities. Brand new units with beautiful flooring, floor to ceiling windows, and spacious kitchens. The only complaint is electric is not included, and there is a really stupid trash fee of $10 a month per person. The area has had a lot of development over the last 10 years and while it wasn't the safest at first, I think it's improved.

Nice apartment with great access to nightlife of DC

Lyric Apartments is a great price point for what you get, especially in downtown DC. We always appreciate management being on top of everything and for always making sure if anything gets broken that they have maintenance available.

About Downtown

Downtown DC offers tourists and locals plenty to do between the various restaurants, historical attractions, and boutique shopping. This walkable neighborhood welcomes its visitors to walk between the Smithsonian Museums for daytime activities and Penn's Quarter at night to meet up with friends.<br><br>Prices here tend to be a bit higher but you get what you pay for in this situation. Being at the heart of downtown DC means you're at the center of the nation's capital. However, most reviewers say the area is actually fairly quiet since it's home to a large amount of government buildings.

Penn Quarter is a great neighborhood because you are really at the center of the city. It is walking distance to the Capitol, White House, and monuments. You are in the heart of the museum district with access to several of DC's famous museums. The restaurants and bars are great and have a ton of variety.
The neighborhood itself is very quiet, but it's really close to U Street and downtown. I walked to campus everyday and it was a lovely 25-minute walk past the White House. There's an awesome Mexican-Asian grocery store about 2 blocks away and a Giant about 20 minutes. There's a 24 hour CVS around the corner as well as a liquor store so basically everything you could want is in short walking distance.
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.
Great location. It is so close to the law school - its about an 8 minute walk away from class. Whole Foods is close and so is Trader Joe's. A downside is that there are no "typical" grocery stores close to hear. Also, it is not too far from Dupont Circle which is great to go to for some more dinner options.
Winston House is far away enough from campus that you can walk around without seeing students everywhere you go, but still allows you to get to class on time. Stoney's, which is right across the street, is a cool place to hang out and grab some food/ a beer, and Bruger's is close by for mornings. Whole Foods and Trader Joe's are both easily walkable, and CVS is right down the block. Ideal area for students, although if you're looking for nightlife you will have to walk to dupont/ catch a cab to U street.
Since my apartment building is close to CVS which is open 24 hours, it has been a blessing for me to source snacks when I pulled all - nighters! The library and other university buildings too are close by, so even walking back home at 3 a.m. did not give me any jitters.

The lanes are relatively well-lit and can be used at any time of the day or night. Since the GW police vehicles are seen patrolling late at nights,I believe the streets within the foggy bottom campus area are safe and secure for any one to walk, with no reported issues so far.
Penn quarter is close to most places. Out of three roommates, two of us work in NoMa and one works near Farragut. All three of us walk when it is nice weather. The area doesn't have a lot of really cool, cultural bars but for every day places they are totally fine. There are lots of nearby groceries - safeway and walmart are walking distance from me. Its a safe area that can be a little pricey for rent.
Great neighbourhood if you like city life. Busy, loud, fairly safe area. Extremely accessible to the metro. Fairly central area. Near the Verizon center. Lots of restaurants and bars. Near the national mall. Can walk to work if I wanted to. Grocery stores close. No complaints for living in Chinatown!
