For The Ellington

20 Ratings & Reviews


Great location, good sized units

I definitely recommend the Ellington. Located less than a block from the metro and on the 14th st corridor, it's amazing how many options there are right around the building. We've been here for 2 years in the smallest sized unit and have still lived comfortably. Everyone who works here is very friendly and helpful. The amenities are fantastic - Rooftop with grills and an amazing view of the city The gym that is kept clean and generally not crowded A party room for hosting large groups of guests Our only complaints are that our windows haven't been cleaned in 2 years and the fire alarm goes off occasionally in the middle of the night. Overall, it's been a great place to live!

Great sized units for the price in this location

No real complaints about the building. The roof deck is the best part. My unit faces U st so if you don't like noise, this could be a problem as it tends to get very loud especially on weekend nights. Bozzuto is notoriously strict with not allowing a number of dog breeds so make sure you check their list if you're moving in with your pooch. It's a great location and you actually get more space for your money compared to some of the newer buildings that have been built in the last few years in the neighborhood.

Great location, decent price

I've lived at the Ellington for three years now, first in an apartment facing U Street, and now in an apartment facing the back of the building. I will say that apartments facing U street can get a bit noisy, but the back side of the building (facing V street) is very quiet. The rent is decent for the area and is a bit cheaper compared to the other (and newer) buildings in the neighborhood. You're really paying for location here, as you can't beat the location to the metro, restaurants, bars, etc. The gym (including fitness classes) and roof are excellent amenities.

The Ellington is elegant

The Ellington is a beautiful building with a 24-hour front desk, gym, free exercise classes, and occasionally free breakfast. Its location on U street cannot be beat. The only issue is that the area can be dangerous at night so you must be vigilant.

The Ellington

The Ellington is a great apartment building. Door staff is extremely friendly. Roof provides an amazing view of DC and was recently redone.
