Beautiful apartments near the white house
Camden is incredibly nice. During non-covid times, the Grand Parc provides breakfast every morning. There is a business center, a gym, a social area, a courtyard and a small patio space. The location is nice, though the nearest grocery store is about a mile away and when there are protests it does get noisy (we were in the Red zone during inauguration, and since we are around the corner from BLM plaza there are sometimes disruptions). The building is very secure and they increase staff during unrest. Parking is available for a small monthly fee. The apartments themselves are spacious, and have huge windows. The kitchen space is nice, and there is a lot of light in the common areas. Both bathrooms are spacious. The master bedroom has a large walk in closet, and the second bedroom has a smaller bathroom, with more storage in the bathroom. The building is quiet and maintenance works quickly. There have been some minor heat issues, but they are generally resolved quickly. They've tried to include some socially distant events, but obviously "social" has not been the emphasis.
Camden Roosevelt Review
Amazing building & staff
Camden City Centre
The complex is very nice and relatively safe, although the surrounding area does have a moderate amount of crime. There are a lot of young people who live here, and it is very pet friendly.

Rating of Camden Roosevelt
Camden Roosevelt is a very nice place to live! Although expensive, its top tier amenities and lobby decor are unmatched. The surrounding neighborhood is both quiet and close to many popular areas such as the U St corridor and Adams Morgan. Management is very pleasant and helpful. My favorite amenities are the on-residence gym and lounge areas (includes communal pool table)
Awesome place to live!
Great apartment with amazing amenities. The neighborhood is quiet yet very close to bars and restaurants.
Great restaurant and bar scene
Highly recommend for someone who wants to walk to great bars, restaurants, Ponce City Market, and the Beltline. Morning commute is only about 15-20 minutes to campus.
Comfortable and easy living
Not huge floorplans but definitely sufficient. Comes with washer/dryer. Clean, updated appliances/carpeting. They do make you get a technology package (cable/internet) and valet trash. Internet mostly reliable. It is a gated community and feels very safe. The parking garage is super convenient. Good amenities - 4 pools, two story gym. Maintenance works very quickly if you have issues. They take care of the property very well. Only downside is sometimes the leaf blower/mower can be going all morning and can be loud.
Practical location, close to the metro rail that goes to Campus. The area is noisy during weekends nights. Camden does an average job of keeping the community clean and fixing amenities.
Too expensive for what it is
Camden City Centre is a nice apartment but is too expensive for what it is. Also people leave their dog poop everywhere.
Floor plans are great for the price. However, that price included a required technology package for internet and cable. I wouldn't have purchased the package if I had a choice because I don't watch cable, but there wasn't an option there. The quality is average, internet goes down sometimes but not enough for it to be a huge issue. There is also a required valet trash fee every month. They pick up trash every night Sunday-Thursday, which is nice, but again, wish the cost wasn't required.
They just installed new "chirp" locks so theres easy access to garage, amenities, and units from the mobile app.
Biggest issue ive seen so far is missing packages. Since I moved in I had a package delivered to the whole other side of the complex and a package that completely went missing. Other people have had this problem as well but management has said they are working to fix it.
Lots of bars/restaurants around and is located right next to a Randalls and a Walgreens, which is very convenient. Surrounding roads are nosey, but that was to be expected.
Great Amenities, Pricy, Decent Location
The apartment has a lot of great amenities and the maintenance team is quick to fix any issues, but there is a large homeless population in the area, and rent is pretty expensive compared to other apartments in the area. I chose this apartment because it is very close to campus, but since classes are now online and my commute to campus is gone, I wish I were in a different area where I could walk more freely. I have lived here for two years and have had good relationships with management, but will likely not stay beyond this lease.
Camden Huntingdon Review
Overall, my time at this apartment has been great. Management is very responsive, and any maintenance issues (which are few and far between) are fixed quickly. The only real downside is the commute, but even that is manageable as long as you don't leave for class right in the middle of rush hour.
Camden Henderson is a great location if you like to be out and about. It is located right off of Henderson and is a quick walk to many bars and restaurants, and a short distance from Greenville Ave. There are several grocery stores located nearby as well. The amenities are pretty updated, however the gated parking lot is very crammed. There are plenty of spots reserved outside the gate that I don’t mind using. Renovations are currently being done to the leasing office, media room, and office.
My only issue besides the crammed parking lot, is the noise level. Some people are lucky and have quiet neighbors, however I am not one of those lucky ones. This isn’t the complexes problem, but it’s still a con.
Wouldn't live anywhere else
The location is great – very central to everything. I live 12-15 minutes from campus is 7-10 minutes from downtown. Lots of great restaurants in the area, many within walking distance on Richmond Ave. Super quiet complex, mostly young professionals or couples. Very nice, updated apartments with large balconies and pretty courtyards. Safe area with good police/security presence and parking is always easy. Maybe a little pricier than some other places but worth all the pros. I have two cats and they really enjoy the balcony as well.
