I live in a cozy 1930s bungalow with a porch swing and plenty of creaky charm, in a quiet family neighborhood. I have a spacious spare room in the front of the house that affords plenty of privacy to guests. The house is easily walkable from Crystal City hotels (many conference-goers stay with me) and from the metro rail station. The neighborhood is safe at all times of day and night. This is a great place to stay if you want a calm, quiet place to perch while checking out DC.
