Globally recognized as the seat of world democracy, the Capitol Hill neighborhood radiates a sense of geopolitical significance unmatched anywhere else in the world. Perhaps sensing the magnitude of what he was undertaking, noted architect Pierre Charles L’Enfant chose to build the “Congress House” on the crest of a long slope overlooking the city, and he declared that the site was a "pedestal waiting for a monument.” As the nation grew, so did the neighborhood in both importance and size. The Capitol Hill area boasts over 50 small parks that give the area a unique “green” feel as the urban landscape consistently provides one natural oasis after another. Capital Hill rentals in DC have something for everyone! 

 

Travelers enjoy the experience of being up close to buildings and monuments that most have only seen on TV or in history books. It is all here: the Supreme Court, Library of Congress, Congressional Cemetery, Eastern Market (the oldest market in Washington, DC with over 100 vendors from five continents), and of course the U.S. Capitol building itself. The U.S. Capitol anchors the eastern end of the National Mall so residents have the pleasure of being able to walk to the National Mall with its 11 Smithsonian Museums and countless memorials, lovely gardens, and special events.
