DCGUEST APARTMENTS:
Not your typical “corporate” apartments
—we’re different! Located in Dupont Circle, we designed our apart-

nished and fully equipped (including Internet & satellite TV). Most
importantly, we understand that occasionally needs change, so we
never penalize you if you leave early. You only pay for the nights
you stay, even if your plans change at the last minute. We also don’t
believe in minimum stays or extra charges like application or clean-
ing fees. And we always work with you on per diem.
