Even though I’ve recently completed my journey visiting the 50 American states I still make time to go back to my favorite destinations, to explore new spots and of course, take more pictures! And that’s exactly what happened this past weekend when I went back to Washington D.C. to work on a series of blog posts featuring my favorite things to do in the DC/VA/MD area (It might take a while but I will share all the details with you guys!). And even though I’ve been to DC countless times in the past, this was the first time I actually stayed in the city, in the middle of the action, just like a local resident. And It was the best experience so far!
For my weekend stay in DC I booked an apartment through Global Luxury Suites, a property management company that offers amazing centrally located accomodations throughout the US for short or long stays, perfect for families, couples and even solo travelers – the experience of staying in the middle of the action with absolutely everything you need (from washing machine and dish washer to a gorgeous rooftop and high speed internet) is one of a kind! First, you don’t have the impersonal experience that comes with staying in a hotel. By booking one of their apartments you feel like a resident, with access to their luxurious building amenities, 24 hours customer service and even a welcome kit to make you feel at home from the moment you step in (and that includes local area information, maps, paper towels, garbage bags, bottled water, coffee, tea, popcorn, dish soap, dish detergent, sponge, laundry detergent, light bulbs, facial tissues, toilet paper rolls, shampoo, conditioner, bath gel, lotion, and body soap!).
It is like staying in a 5 star hotel – without breaking the bank- but feeling like you’re home. And if you like saving money like me, think about all the home cooked meals you will be able to prepare instead of dining out every night and the freedom to have your entire family in one place instead of booking two hotel rooms. Global Luxury Suites offers accomodations that range from studios to one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments in great cities such as Boston, Miami, New York, San Francisco and many more.
Their apartments come with:
Separate living, dining, and sleeping areas
Top of the line appliances
Full-size washer and dryer in unit
High speed Internet
Local phone service
Starter kit: local area information, paper towels, garbage bags, bottled water, coffee, tea, popcorn, dish soap, dish detergent, sponge, laundry detergent, light bulbs, facial tissues, toilet paper rolls, shampoo, conditioner, bath gel, lotion, and body soap.
And to end this post in the best way possible, here is a picture of “our” rooftop view! I love the Capitol Building with all my heart and waking up to this view was the cherry on top of our stay in Washington DC with Global Luxury Suites! Thank you so much for making me feel so welcome, I can’t wait to stay with you again! For more information make sure to check their website HERE or call their reservation and customer service 24/7 number (844) 893-3465! Ah! they are also on instagram HERE!
Two important points about their service:
They don’t offer daily housekeeping because they offer full apartments (it comes with all the necessary cleaning supplies – in case you need them- there was even a vacuum!). They have a cleaning before and after each guest stays, completed by a separate professional cleaning company. They do, of course, have the option to set up cleaning but that’s upon request.
Parking was available but it was provided by a separate entity right next to our building and it may be set before arrival (you must call for availability). It was a great experience and very convenient.
