Recent Equity Residential reviews
Walkable distance from school, also metro accessible for orange/silver/blue and red. In building laundry.
Great new building
The building management is very responsive. The building has a pool, gym, business center (w/ free printing), indoor rec area (w/ pool table, indoor theater, kitchen, etc.), and outdoor rec area (w/ BBQs, outdoor theater, lounge chairs, etc.). The building is fairly new (<10 years).
Would Highly Recommend The Flats
Expensive (but not more so than other buildings in the surrounding area), but very well managed/the people who work there are incredibly nice and responsive, lots of closet space, pet friendly, huge gym, floor-to-ceiling windows. Kitchen appliances are all new.
1500 Mass. Apartments: A Decent Start in D.C.
With a roommate, I paid a little over $1000 a month for rent, which was reasonable overall compared to other places I've heard 1Ls stay at. Better than GW Aston Housing because you get to stay there over the summer (assuming you want to work in DC your 1L year). Pets allowed, guests allowed at all times, great concierge, gym on the second floor, common room on the first floor, Mini-Mart on the ground floor with all of the essentials (and alcohol!). It's about a fifteen minute walk to GW Law, and the walk itself is through a great part of town. As for other travelling, its a ten minute walk to the McPhearson Metro stop, which gives you the ability to move around the city without a whole lot of problems.
The only negatives are that the rent can be a bit much, especially without a roommate. The kitchens and bathrooms are pretty bare-essentials as well.
Overall, its a great place to start in D.C. You'll definitely only want to stay there for a year, but until you have a chance to get a feel for the city and be able to see apartments in-person before you rent them, 1500 is the way to go.
Vista on courthouse is a clean and safe building with updated appliances and tall ceilings. The rent is steep, however, the quality of the location, building and management is worth it. I would recommend 10/10!
Convenient, Clean, Friendly Staff
The Clarendon offers an unbeatable location. Right on the metro, easy walking distance to 3 grocery stores and innumerable restaurants. The staff is friendly. However, it is very expensive and the rent increases are absurd at 10-15% per year. Living here long-term is unsustainable because nobody's income rises that fast. Also, the apartments look high end, but the build quality is cheap. For example, all the interior doors are thin hollow-core so sound flows through a closed door like it's still open.
Nice apartment building. Much more space for the money than other buildings in the area. Management is very responsive.
The management company has done a poor job with its accounting - they got some of my checks confused and I needed to provide proof of rent payment after the fact through my bank - very disorganized. It was a time consuming ordeal.
Get more in Brooklyn
Living at the Brooklyner has been amazing. I have washer/dryer in unit, an outdoor/indoor roof deck with amazing Manhattan views, a lounge floor with a gym, game room, and large table for dinner parties. For transit there is a citibike station out front that I use most days to get to NYU and 8 subways lines within a couple blocks.
Great building, great neighborhood.
Great building, in an awesome neighborhood. Would recommend to others.
I have a one bedroom that is converted into a two bedroom. I love Hudson Crossing bc it's in a convenient location and affordable. The staff are friendly and helpful and the application process was a breeze.
the prime at arlington
Overall great experience. They are quick to fix any problems with the apartment. It would have been nice to get some more support from the management company at times.
Mordern luxury apartment in Arlington
Living at Lofts 590 has been a great experience. I wasn't necessarily looking to live in a huge apartment complex, but I wanted to find a place that was well managed with a gym and Lofts 590 was a great fit. The staff is really friendly, the metro is nearby, and the surrounding area is extremely safe. It's still more expensive than I would have liked, but I've been very happy living here.
Great Place to be in
2201 Pershing offers exceptional amenities and a lot of space in the apartment room. Management is great and the location is perfect just on the corner of Arlington Blvd and Pershing, it gives you the tranquility you are looking for in a neighborhood with a very close proximity to the Georgetown area and Washington Mall. Highly recommended.
2201 Wilson - Great place to live!
Very friendly apartment complex with a lot of dogs. Newly renovated common area and gym. Could not have asked for a more spacious, clean, and friendly place
