    We had the "poetry" room for 5 nights mid-June 2017. Two large beds in one room. The room, hosts, and common area were superb. Only caveat: no elevators, so you learn to bring all you will need downstairs (or up), to minimize trips up the...More

    Thanks for your question. Our DC location does not have a gym or pool. Vida Fitness, a full gym, though no pool is .3 miles, just a few blocks from the house. Steve
