Great place to live
I enjoy living here. The area is close enough to school that I can walk 20 min or I can take the shuttle or I can take the metro. Sometimes it feels unsafe because there's shootings that happen down the street, and sometimes I can hear people yelling outside at 4 am in the morning. But other than the surrounding environment the facility is great. So nice to have a gym downstairs
Great place for students
Overall a good place to live, easy access to DC via metro, bus, or walking. The buildings are on the older side but management and maintenance is responsive.
Good place for students
Fantastic neighborhoods and environment. Live in trees and flowers. Quiet and safe place. But the amenities in house are relatively old.
Great place to live
My roommate and I love our apartment! We’re in Arlington right by the Georgetown walking bridge. The area is cute and homey. We have lots of good places to eat, grocery stores, bars all near us. It’s a ~20 min commute to campus (only one metro stop). Great running trails!
The apartment complex itself is older so the issues that come with an older building are to be expected. It has some modern amenities especially in the kitchen, the fitness center and mail room are convenient. The maintenance team is very responsive to issues, the location is great for commuting to and from Georgetown University while within walking distance of the Rosslyn metro.
The location is ten minutes away from the Rosslyn Metro, which makes it convenient to get to campus and a good distance away when things get stressful. They are multiple houses in the complex area so everything is relatively private. The houses are not furnished but roomy.
I have had a great experience at this apartment building thus far. The apartment is close to school and I walk everyday, which saves me money on transportation. My apartment is very spacious and close to many stores. I've had a few issues with the overall maintenance but the property manager has been helpful in resolving these issues.
Cheap and nothing special
It's relatively cheap compared to other places. The location is a 10-minute walk from the Rosslyn metro and a 15 minute walk to Georgetown which is nice. It has free parking which is rare. The appliances are on the older side but functional. The apartment overall isn't of great quality, a few things have broken, but it has been satisfactory. The gym is pretty small and to get to the washer and dryers you have to go outside which isn't ideal. Overall it is cheap, but not a very special place.
Nice for student life
The buildings are old but it is nicely maintained. Free Parking! No swimming pool and other great amenities. Management is helpful.
Upon searching for residences in the Arlington area, Park Georgetown appealed to me and my roommate more than any other complex. It's ideal location, paired with fantastic rental rates and professional staff, make this an incredible place to live. I'd recommend this complex to friends, for sure!
cute and quiet
The Asher has been a wonderful place to live thus far and I have had close to zero problems. The management and front desk staff are super friendly, gym has lots of equipment and is clean, parking garage is large and connects the two buildings. Very pet friendly.
Convenient but not worth it
Overall, Park Georgetown is convenient and the location is great for the price but the apartment leaves much to be desired. The buildings are old, noisy and the walls are paper thin. I will be happy to move to an upgraded apartment community even if it costs more.
Love this place!
I am in love with PGT! For my budget, I have the largest 1 bedroom in the area with an absolutely amazing management staff. The entire staff is like family now and it makes me never want to leave this community! The building are a bit older but in such great condition and maintenance will come for any problem in a timely manner! One of the huge running paths backs right up to the property but the property is still on its own and safe! Not the best location for walking to courthouse/Clarendon and the metro is about 12 minute walk but there are always sacrifices when you have a budget!
Construction next door
no daylight w the new building being built next to it
They do not remodel anything in the apartment, no yearly inspection, no pro active building maintenance. They never wash the windows, there is a pet problem that building deals with it, and now that construction next door is being done, ne sleep and no daylight if you live on the north side of the building.
Columbia Heights for the Right Price
I've been wanting to move to Columbia Heights for a while, but my salary one year out of school was making it look close to impossible unless I wanted to live in an old townhouse with 6 strangers. The Uptown has been my saving grace! The manager, Donnie, is wonderful and clearly goes above and beyond in his work. The building is stylish and well cared for - 24/7 maintenance goes a long way. And the price is hard to beat for a Columbia Heights apartment. There are some amenities you'll forgo to get that kind of price - there's no desk/concierge for instance, and no in unit laundry. But if you're looking for an affordable option with a good standard of living (they've got a gym after all) this is a great place.
