I have actually been to DC a number of times (have family in Spring Valley) and particularly like the Dupont Circle/West End area due to the high level of activity and numerous restaurants. However, I am trying to find an apartment to accommodate 5 ladies and Dupont Circle seems to focus on hotels and smaller apartments. Is there any other place I can search for a vacation rental apartment that might be somewhat comparable? I'm trying to avoid anything too residential where night time dining options are limited. We don't plan on having a car and tend to "Metro-it".
Any suggestions would be great.
