West End — 7.9/10 Rating (based on 7 neighborhood reviews)
The neighborhood is perfect. Ten minute walk to school, five minute walk to the metro. CVS and Walgreens just ten minutes away, trader joes just 3 minutes away, Whole Foods ten minutes away. There is a bus stop with a bunch of bus routes directly in front of the building. This neighborhood is also close to a bunch of other great neighborhoods, just a 20 minute walk to DuPont Circle and Georgetown where there are restaurants, bars, and stores. The monuments (the Lincoln) are only a 25 minute walk down 23rd street. There are numerous gyms nearby and the school gym is only a ten minute walk from the apartment. The area is probably the safest in the city and there is not a lot of noise over the normal city noise. It is next to the GW Hospital so ambulances going by can be annoying but not overly so. This neighborhood is great and close to every amenity.

West End is somewhat squished between Foggy Bottom and DuPont. There are a lot of newer apartment buildings, and a number of cafes in the area. There's a Trader Joe's, a small hardware store, a few dry cleaners and a couple of gyms in the area. There aren't very many restaurants in West End proper, but both DuPont and Foggy Bottom are an easy walk. Georgetown is also a fairly easy walk. It is close to GW's campus. The Foggy Bottom metro is 5-10 minutes away, and the DuPont metro is maybe a 15-20 minute walk. It's a pretty safe neighborhood and relatively quiet at night.

The Atlas
Safe neighborhood, great transportation hub with multiple bus stops less than a minute's walk from the apartment and a 5 minute walk to the metro. Some restaurants and bars nearby as well. Ten minute (at most!) walk to GW campus! My only gripe is that it's an expensive neighborhood but the apartment is competitively priced for the area.

Steps away from Trader Joes. Steps away from Georgetown. 10 minute walk from Dupont Circle. You're *so* close to everything - you can walk pretty much anywhere within 10-20 minutes.

West End is a great place to live. It is close to all the restaurants and bar in Georgetown, a movie theater, and the Foggy Bottom metro. Also, it is a 15 minute walk from the George Washington University.

The Potowmac Overlook
The West End is an incredibly safe and desirable DC neighborhood. Walking distance to DuPont, Adams Morgan, U st, and 14th st where the majority of DC nightlife is located. Plenty of restaurants both upscale and casual in the neighborhood.
