The apartment was really nice with a great location. AC broke a few times but maintenance was quick! Management was always available to help. My roommates were nice and we had fun together. Only reason I am giving it 4 stars was because it was SUPER pricey for the bedroom I had to share.
The WIHN made my move to DC incredible. Accommodations were great, everything was super close. I loved all of my interactions with this company and they helped me every step of the way. I tell all of my friends about this when they are moving to DC because it really was such a wonderful experience. Highly recommend.
Had such a fantastic Summer living in D.C. with the wihn. I really liked the fact I didn’t have to bring anything except for my bedding. I was only a 15 minute walk to my internship on the Hill and my roommates walked to the monuments a few times. I’ll be back! Thanks for everything Melanie!
Absolutely loved my experience with the WIHN and everyone I came in contact with throughout my time at Senate Square. The accommodations were amazing compared to where my friends stayed and they just made my entire semester that much easier.
When you go for the WIHN (pronounced “win”), you will come out with a huge loss.
The school year was over, and I was excited to start my internship after paying over $5000 rent for the Greystone property for my ten week internship. I arrived in my room, which was a small double. My roommate had not arrived yet, but I had the company of a pile of dead flies, left there by the “professional cleaning staff” of the company’s secretary. My room conveniently had a bathroom in it, which smelled not of lemon Pledge, but of still water. Upon investigating it, I found that the shower had a pool of water in it; the shower’s drain was higher than the base of the shower, meaning that every time the shower would be used, there would be a pool of water left in it. I finish the job that the professional cleaning staff never completed, put on a pair of flip flops and splashed the still water from the shower and into the drain.
Now that I was all moved in, I finally took a moment, sat down, and began to plan my trip to my internship and to places like the grocery store. As I sat in my abnormally small bed (which is perfectly sized for the WIHN to squeeze in that extra bed and squeeze an extra $5000 out of unsuspecting interns), water began to drip on me from the air conditioner. I needed to cover it with a towel taped to the ceiling; I also needed to cover myself in more than a t-shirt and shorts because the air conditioner was constantly running. Feeling thirsty after performing the cleaning and maintenance that I shouldn’t have done, I reached out and grabbed a bottle of ice-cold water, not from the fridge, but from a case left on the floor in my room. From that point on, I practically lived in the living room of Greystone.
Fortunately/unfortunately, I wasn’t there for long. One morning, after a lot of rain, I unraveled myself from my sheets to get ready for my internship. I was tired since I woke up in the middle of the night to a loud gurgling sound, which was the sewer regularly settling. Suddenly, I stepped into a puddle of water and my socks and long pajamas were all wet. Could this place get any worse? That morning, I played “The Floor is Lava,” got dressed, headed to my internship, and decided to deal with the situation later.
While at my internship, my roommate text me saying that the secretary was on top of the situation. A plumber never came and all she did was clean up the water. The room kept flooding, and instead of a plumber, we got our secretary/landlady. She could not identify a problem. After cleaning our room for hours and after hearing of some more flooding, I finally got some good news from my roommate: the flooding stopped. Everything was back to normal!
