In its earliest days, most of the residents were members of Congress who lived in boarding houses and dormitories surrounding the Capitol. As the neighborhood evolved, row houses replaced boarding houses and the Hill began to grow as a neighborhood filled with families, as well as Washington's who's who. As you walk around this stately neighborhood, don't be surprised if you see faces you've seen in the news. A number of senators and representatives make their home on the Hill. In addition to the U.S. Capitol, the Hill includes other significant American landmarks such as the U.S. Supreme Court, the Library of Congress, the Folger Shakespeare Library, Union Station, the U.S. Marine Corps Barracks, the Washington Naval Yard, Congressional Cemetery, Lincoln Park, and the Eastern Market. All of these sights are within easy walking distance and most are Metro-accessible. Just down the hill from the Capitol is the National Mall with all of the monuments and memorials iconic to Washington, as well as more than 10 museums and galleries of art and artifacts. To the east of the Capitol is the Eastern Market—one of the only remaining merchant markets left in Washington. While the market bustles during the week, it is on the weekends that it acquires its character and charm as residents from all over the city and visitors from all over the world come to the market to enjoy breakfast; purchase fresh meats, produce, and breads; stroll through the adjacent flea market; and browse the latest art and jewelry crafted by local artists and artisans. During the spring and summer months, a visit to the U.S. Marine Corps Barracks at 8th and I Streets SE will allow you to see the Marine Corps Silent Drill Team in action. This 24-man rifle platoon performs precision maneuvers with their 10.5 lb M-1 Garand rifles with fixed bayonets. Over at the U.S. Capitol, the newly opened visitor's center allows visitors to experience the Capitol from the ground up. The center features several state statues in Emancipation Hall and a museum that chronicles the history of the U.S. Capitol from its cornerstone laying in 1789 by George Washington to the present day. Tickets for the Senate and House galleries are available here. The Library of Congress' Jefferson Building, just across the street from the Capitol, is the world's largest repository of books and media in the world. **The building is open to the public and the Renaissance and classical art are breathtaking** We’ve successfully hosted the following groups in our apartment in DC!: - Family gatherings for reunions, graduations, military ceremonies. - Colleagues sharing the house for events or conferences. - Small-business teams in town for trade-shows -Government work. - Students and teachers coming on class trips to D.C. - Graduate students in town for class, internships, presentations, or events. - Tourist groups seeing the sights of D.C. - Wedding and funeral parties. - Large groups of friends visiting D.C. - Concert goers - Friends coming into D.C. for sporting events at the Verizon Center/Capital One Arena. -People seeking specialized medical treatment -Dancers/actors/musicians/documentarians performing, recording, or filming. We have a 4 nights minimum but if your desired dates are fewer but they fall within 2 reservations or right before/after another reservation please let us know and we are happy to book your reservation.

About the neighbourhood
Right around the corner from the Potomac Avenue metro stop is where our cute home is situated. There is a grocery store around the corner, and tons of restaurants in walking distance, some of which have Michelin stars or are Michelin recommended! You can also walk to Eastern Market, or check out the National Mall, all within walking distance! You can also walk to Eastern Market, which is about a 15 minute walk! The National Mall is a 30 minute walk :)! These and other sites make staying on Capitol Hill a must if you're visiting Washington on business or for pleasure!!
