Diamond in the rough

I wasn't sure this was the place for me when I first toured the neighborhood--while not nearly as bad as it used to be, the Rhode Island Metro area isn't known for its appealing looks. The building was incredible, though--gorgeous hardwood floors, granite countertops and brand-new appliances in a kitchen with pass-throughs (a lifelong dream), even individual AC units in every room (that don't obliterate your power bill, as it turns out!). So the girlfriend and I talked it over and decided to give it a try. Two weeks later, we're convinced we've hit the jackpot. The rent is very reasonable ($2200 for a two-bedroom and den, and delightfully close to everything via metro, bus, or Uber). The facilities are fantastic--full gym, pet spa, secured bike storage, and front desk service seven days a week. The apartment gets tons of sunlight (the den is quickly becoming our pajama herb garden). The staff are just amazing--competent, helpful, and family-friendly (the assistant property manager's son is a building toy fanatic, so I was only too pleased to introduce him to the world of Lego). And as it turns out, the neighborhood is on the up-and-up--the nearby shopping center (already sporting a sizeable CVS, Sala Thai, Carolina Kitchen, and Chipotle) is plastered with "Coming Soon!" signs. I'm spending entirely too much time in the Home Depot a block past that, which shares a parking lot with Giant--which fills in the gaps of our Sunday farmer's market runs a few blocks up Rhode Island Ave. I'm in love, and very glad I gave the Metropolitan the chance it deserves. Check it out!

Do not move here!

This building is not secure and the building's management is incompetent and rude. The front doors regularly will not lock. Management does not respond to issues in the building. They have entered my until multiple times without giving me any notice, and have lied about it afterwards. They disregard tenant's rights and lease terms. This is an awful place. I only wish I knew that before I signed my lease.

Property Manager at The Metropolitan Apartments responded to this review

My name is Eddy Hyland and I am the Regional Property Manager for the Metropolitan Apartments. I would like to extend a sincere apology to the resident who expressed her displeasure with Management. Maintenance entered her apartment when she wasn't home to address what was perceived to be an emergency, therefore, Management acted at the time in a way that was truly thought to be in the resident's best interest. As a result, Maintenance took action and went into her apartment and assessed the situation. Fortunately, there was no emergency but we did need to return to do some minor drywall work and painting. We mutually agreed to a date when Maintenance would perform the work. It turned out, this would be a two-day process instead of one. When we returned the second day, the resident did not see the note left by Maintenance that stated we be returning to finish the job and felt we had ignored her request not to enter her apartment without prior notice. Unfortunately, as a result, she believes we entered her apartment without proper notice for unfounded reasons and understandably, she was clearly upset with Management for the miscommunication on both occasions, prompting her to respond to social media. In addition, I would like to share with those reading this response that we have a technically advanced apartment door locking system. By using an electronic fob instead of a key, we are able to determine who, and at what time someone unlocks a resident's door. We know this added feature offers peace of mind to many of the residents and we are pleased to be able to provide this amenity. Regarding her statement about the building entrance doors not always being locked, the fob controlled entrance door plates can come loose due to regular use. i am grateful to this resident for bringing this my attention, as we have now implemented an improved inspection process to do our best to assure the doors are always functioning properly. We are not perfect, but I can assure you, your concerns while living at The Metropolitan will be listened to and addressed accordingly. Again, I apologize to the resident for any inconveniences and miscommunication, and I will do all I can to make her stay at The Metropolitan a pleasant one.

Best Bang for Your Bucks!!!!

I moved to “The District” several months ago and having done an extensive apartment search before making my decision, I lucked out with acquiring a one bedroom/bathroom apartment at the Metropolitan Apartments– “the best bang for my buck”! The Metropolitan Apartment offers modern new apartments with “top of the line" features throughout including hardwood floors, granite counter top, stainless steel appliances, balconies, on-site secured parking, fitness room, additional laundry facility, pet grooming center, dogie run, car maintenance area and a courtyard with grills for outdoor dining /entertainment. This beautiful building is a renovated historic landmark, close to NOMA, H Street and U Street for your dining needs and entertainment choices. The Metropolitan Apartments is just a short walk to the Rhode Island Avenue metro. The management staff is always professional and will notify me if I have a package available for pick up in the leasing office. The apartment complex interior is kept clean and the exterior landscaping is kept well manicured. Additionally as a single woman, I truly appreciate the security of the building. I would highly recommend the Metropolitan Apartments to anyone looking to live in “The District”!

Beautiful Building...but...

pros: secure building upgraded units additional laundry outside of your w/d in unit quiet great rental office staff, and maintenance. parking pet friendly, pet run, pet spa room (if you have a pet) curb appeal great floors, paint, kitchen, size bike room cons: lobby needs decor badly to highlight the gorgeous floors/ceiling no ventilation in hallways closets are small/no additional storage no rooftop there have been recurring roaches in many units (which is ridiculous)take precautions and spray your cabinets often. needs zip car on property, or shuttle to station would help (not that close) the cons can be corrected. we love the area and the building. yes i would recommend. My husband and i have a 2 bed and will stay for now. hopefully the cons will be addressed sooner than later. they need to stay competitive for DC. there are new apt. in dc with great amenities for the same price.

Truly a Hidden Gem

I have lived at The Metropolitan Apartments for over a year. What I love: -The management here is excellent. I have had nothing but great interactions with them. They know who I am when I stop by the office, I have never felt like just a "rent check" to them. I've experienced the bad, and am very thankful there's a great team here at the Metropolitan. -The units are beautiful and make great use of space. I have a studio apartment. I love that I have a combo washer/dryer, a built-in bar counter in the kitchen (removing the need for a dining table), a dishwasher, a walk-in closet and a full bathtub/shower in a STUDIO! In DC! And the extra space above the cabinets and the ceiling is great for additional storage. -Gym onsite. -I rarely EVER hear anyone's dogs. Seriously. -Contrary to another review on here I have never seen a single bug/roach in the building. -Proximity to a grocery store (Giant)with a huge full surface parking lot (shared with Home Depot)!!! Um hello, this is amazing in DC. Also check out Good Food Market, Zeke's Coffee, and the TJ Maxx in the Giant shopping center has excellent selection! Things I could be nit-pick about: -The unit doors. Sigh. Ok...the door frames are metal (and therefore very secure with the keyless locks we have). HOWEVER. Door slamming can be somewhat of an issue. There are no door slowing mechanisms on any of the unit doors, and if a neighbor isn't paying attention, if they slam their door it is very loud against the metal door frame. Luckily my neighbors are generally quiet door closers, whereas someone else down the hall tends to slam theirs. Management does know about this, in general, but given all of the things I love about my apartment I kinda've just deal with it. As for the area- I have never felt unsafe in the apartment itself. Or parking out back at night, etc. However I do not walk home from the Rhode Island metro to the apartment at night. I have walked it several times during the day and it's generally fine, just be careful. I'm a mid-twenties female. I never felt the need to move. I would however caution that if you're going to walk around, especially at night, just be aware of your surroundings.
