West End — 8.4/10 Rating (based on 16 neighborhood reviews)
Foggy Bottom is safe, clean, quiet and conveniently located. Renters should be aware that this is a very undergraduate heavy lots of college students around. Also a pretty quiet neighborhood, not a high concentration of walkable bars, restaurants etc. but can easily access the rest of the city via Metro or bike.

The Shoremeade
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.

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.

The neighborhood is simply great. Lots of restaurants, bars, hotels, gyms, and grocery stores. The park in front of the building is a great plus, specially if you have a dog.

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.

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.

This neighborhood has everything a millennial needs - a CVS, Soulcycle, Sweetgreen, and great bars/restaurants. Highly recommend because it's quiet and really close to DuPont Circle and the GW Metro.

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.

Safest neighborhood in DC. Never any homeless people bothering you for money, right next to Trader Joes and conveniently located above the West End Public Library.

Good neighborhood convenient to hospital and most clinics. Have been able to suffice with metro and uber which saves a lot of money. Area has lots of restaurants, but somewhat limited options on weekends. Not the area for going out every night, more business-focused.

I like West End - the new public library is really great, a nice park is nearby, great boutique fitness studios. If you're in need of good bars and restaurants, Dupont and Georgetown are only a 10-15 minute walk away.

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.
