Spacious, even with a large number of students living in the same unit. Close to the Capitol and Union Station. Quality views outside on the balconies.
The living quarters themselves were good quality. The living room was large, the kitchen had all the necessary amenities needed, heating and air conditioning worked perfectly, and the wooden floors made cleaning much easier. The underground parking for bikes and accessible rooftops were also a plus. Internet was hit-or-miss, with some days the connection working flawlessly, other days randomly dropping in and out.
The best aspect was the responsive maintenance services. Any issue, whether it was a burned-out lightbulb or the refrigerator suddenly not working, the response was quick and the fix done right. Occasional cleanups by workers were done while most students were away, and genuinely helped keep the unit clean, especially considering how much of a mess so many people in one unit can make.
Made DC a solid experience.
Our son utilized this wonderful rental during his internship with the Senate. When we visited we were impressed by the quality of the apartment, the nice furnishings, the excellent suite mates, and the overall security of the building. The building is in a convenient location that is a short walk to the Capital and the rest of the buildings on the mall. This was a good experience for our son and I would highly recommend Washington Intern Housing.
My brother recently stayed with WIHN for his spring internship at the United States Senate and he absolutely loved the experience. The rooms had plenty of space and were very well maintained. The apartment building was centrally located and allowed him to quickly and easily get to work. It was also in a great location for finding top notch restaurants and other activities.
I have stayed with WIHN twice and had great experiences both times. The apartments are well designed and give more than enough space. I also met some of my best friends through this network! Would recommend for any intern needing semester housing for the Hill or otherwise.
My experience staying at the WIHN was wonderful! My row house was located central to everything - stores, restaurants, and even my job. Randy was amazing and always answered any questions I had throughout my stay. Also, the house was beautiful and nicely decorated. Thank you!
Dependable, high speed wireless internet is mission critical when it comes to your time in Washington, D.C.
In this day and age, The WIHN is acutely aware of how critical a reliable, high speed wireless internet connection is to today’s interns and young professionals.
We’ve partnered with Comcast/Xfinity cable & internet services to provide our tenants with the highest speed data bundles available for residential properties. Each unit & property comes with its own dedicated high speed cable internet connection and is only shared among 7 residents at any one time. This leaves plenty of bandwidth for Netflix streaming, YouTube, Xbox gaming as well as services such as AppleTV, Chromecast, Hulu+, Pandor or Spotify.
Between iPads, smart phones, laptops and an assortment of wireless devices, mobile is the name of the game for our students. The Washington Intern Housing Network consulted with network engineering firm, Merlin Technologies, to install the highest quality, most robust wireless internet access points on the consumer market. In test after test, the Apple AirPort Extreme performed the most consistently.
Additionally, The WIHN maintains its own tech support staff to maintain the uptime of our connections and equipment. In short, this means no waiting days on Comcast to respond to an outage or in the rare event of equipment malfunction.
Our tech support staff has taken the liberty of preparing and running an internet speed test from one of our luxury apartment units. The results of which have been published below. Please note that the following speed test was performed on an HP Omni 200 PC via Wifi using the Apple Airport Extreme router with a Motorola Surfboard 8560 cable modem.
