Recent Equity Residential reviews
There is a good amount of space and the building looks nice, but they skimped on some construction costs and what you get are windows that dont block sound well, dont contin heat or air conditioning, and the elevator breaks sometimes. Air conditioning does not work very well either. Also Equity often prices residents out by increasing rent over 7 or 8 percent on the year.
Great Place, just a little Pricey!
Pros: The gym is newly refurbished, and the study area available is a beautiful place to get your homework or work done, or just read or write. The apartments are dog friendly, and everyone is very neighborly and courteous. The staff are all genuinely nice and want to make sure you have the best experience. There is a bus stop right outside, but the metro is only a 15 minute walk. Also you have access to the outdoor pool in this complex, and access to the indoor pool across the street.
Negatives: Maintenance sometimes takes a while to get back to problems, but not always. The rent is a little pricey.
Nice building, poor management
Our unit is spacious, quiet and spacious— but management is totally unresponsive when problems arise.
Good for GW Law
Easy to rent, location is fantastic and easy to get to school. Plenty of room and relatively quiet.
The apartment itself is nothing to write home about. The kitchen and bathroom are both dated. It doesn't have the nicest fixtures or finishes. But the value is really great. The bedrooms are huge and there are 2 walk-in closets in the apartment so there is plenty of storage space. I've had some issues with responsiveness from management about maintenance issues but nothing when it's been an emergency. It's extremely close the to Van Ness metro (Red Line) which makes getting around the city really easy. The Giant next door is also very convenient.
No noise issues, great for dogs, nice pool and gym.
Great location, great staff, great amenities, too expensive
It's a great apartment with a decent amount of space, good sunlight, amazing location, it is just way too expensive for what it actually is. No utilities are included in rent, that's an extra $150-200 on top of rent per month, it's even more expensive to have pets or a parking space. Other than the price, I like most everything about the apartment.
The Flats at Dupont Circle Review
Nice Apartment, Lots of construction and high rent
Nice apartment for a decent price
This is a solid apartment building for a decent price. You can't get any closer to the metro (it's literally a 15 ft walk from the back entrance to the escalator) and it's situated right between Ballston and Clarendon, so you have very easy access to the Arlington nightlife but it's still quiet near the building itself. All the common areas were renovated in Winter 2017, including the rooftop, which has 2 gas grills, a small pool, and a distant but clear view of the Washington Monument and Capitol. It's an extra $50 a month to have a pet, and it seems like everyone in the building has one. Staff is very friendly and guest access to the building is very easy - I rarely have to come down to let friends in.
The price is decent, but has gone up both times I have renewed the lease. This will probably only get worse as Amazon moves to nearby Crystal City, but it is a pretty decent price considering the amenities (gas appliances, in unit washer/dryer, rooftop, small gym on the 19th floor that has a view of the city, and a nice club room with a pool table and wet bar).
Expensive but wonderful
I live in a 2 bedroom/2 bath but a previous tenant converted the apartment into a 4 bedroom.
The location is great, 15 min walk from the law school, 5 min walk to DuPont Circle, there’s a farmers market right next door every Sunday
It's an ok place to stay
Connecticut Heights is an older apartment building. I lived in building one and it smelled bad and had old carpet. I did not feel safe walking into my building and it often creeped me out. Management was unorganized. The apartment is basically in the middle of no where and is not walkable. I lived here because it was affordable and within walking distance from the law school.
Easy Access to Metro
Steps from the metro and about 5-6 stops from howard. Surrounding area has target,mall,movies, and LA fitness all within walking distance. Parking is 60 a month but this is a good place to live if you don’t have a car. Would recommend to avoid signing leases in summer as the price will be significantly. I got this price on March
Pricey but awesome location
It is a great location but is a bit pricey honestly.
Definitely a comfortable living situation. Minor issues.
The apartment management company is extra friendly, and would always try to work out any issues or "situations" you might have, even if it has to do with your rent. Try and find some HU students that live in the building, and have a great school year
