About the property

1-bd condo by Stay Alfred with amazing Potomac and city views.

Looking for place where you can gather while visiting your soon-to-be-fabulously-successful kid at GWU -- or maybe a place to call home for a few days while you dazzle the argyle socks off of your potential clients? This beautiful 1-bedroom Varsity on K condo by Stay Alfred will be your perfect home base. Its central location -- right across the street from the GWU campus -- puts a slew of great attractions within walking distance, and many more just a short hop away via the city's excellent public transportation system. Inside, you'll get the presidential treatment: granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, wood floors and stylish, modern furnishings and decor. It's huge windows highlight the unit's light, airy feel and offer inspiring Potomac or city views. Plus, its living room and private bedroom make it easy to socialize -- or to get a little space to yourself while your night-owl friends chew the fat. And of course, it wouldn't be a Stay Alfred unless it offered luxurious linens, a complete array of kitchen conveniences and quick access to our helpful customer service staff.

About Us

Hi, friend. Traveling can be such a grind, can't it? Plane rides wrinkle your limited supply of clean clothes. Hotel beds double as chairs for a cramped business meeting or family gathering. And vacation rental closets bulge with other people's ... who knows what. Or worse yet, who knows who.

There's a better way to stay.

Located in our cities' most vibrant neighborhoods and desirable buildings, your posh Stay Alfred is your home away from home, where you can relax and recharge your batteries (figuratively, of course, but literally, too), invite family or colleagues to gather, cook a meal and even replenish your precious supply of clean socks. And the only thing you'll find in our closets are fresh linens and all of the kitchen conveniences you'd ever need.

It's our mission to help you feel at home while you travel.

What is a Stay Alfred?

It's a gorgeous loft in New Orleans that overlooks streets filled with people filing in and out of one-of-a-kind shops and chef-owned restaurants. Or a luxurious, smartly appointed Seattle that's steps away from Pike Place Market.

A Stay Alfred can be many things. But there are definitely some common traits that you'll find in every one you book.

- Each Stay Alfred gives you so much more than a hotel room. It's a large space with at least one private bedroom and bathroom, a living room, and a well-appointed kitchen.

- We cater to travelers who want to immerse themselves in their city experience, so Stay Alfreds are located in our cities' most vibrant, walkable neighborhoods.

- You'll always find a freshly-made bed and crisp, white linens in the closet.

- A Stay Alfred is never somebody else's home, so our closets are always 100% free of weirdness.

- Every Stay Alfred is professionally managed every step of the way, from booking to cleaning to customer service that's always just a text or call away

- Our buildings are the cleanest, most amenity rich spaces that our cities have to offer. If we were there to check you in, we'd absolutely love hearing you say, “Wow -- this is niiiiiice!” We are content to imagine this happening, though. We respect your space.

- Check-in's? Not a chance. You let yourself in, so when you get done with a long day dealing with the airport security shuffle, that guy who brought leftover trout on the plane and your moderate case of jet lag, there's nothing standing between you and a much-needed shower. Hey -- you're looking better already -- let's go explore!

Simply put, more than anything, a Stay Alfred is your place in the city.


Stay Alfred lives to help you fully immerse yourself in your travel experience. We place a high value on both walkability and luxury -- and the Varsity on K checks all of our boxes.

We love this part of the Foggy Bottom neighborhood because by day, it's mostly business, which means that, by night, it quiets down nicely. But that doesn't mean that an afternoon -- or an evening -- of fun is far out of reach. The Kennedy Center, which has hosted everyone from the National Symphony Orchestra to Kendrick Lamar, is an easy walk away, as is the fabulous fare of Founding Farmers, one the most delicious and hilariously named restaurants in the city.

Whether you're in DC to visit kids, see the sights, teach a few classes or win at business, a Varsity on K condo by Stay Alfred gives you easy access to the best of DC.

Local Favorites

The Blue Duck Tavern

1201 24th St NW, Washington, DC

0.2 mi./5-minute walk

With a name that belies its Michelin-star, this culinary powerhouse's wood fired oven creates nothing that isn't out-of-this-world delicious. Our all-American favorite is the Apple Pie for Two, but we feel even more all-American when we have it all to ourself.

The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

2700 F St NW, Washington, DC

0.4 mi./10-minute walk

Jaw-dropping artistry that's a testimony to human passion and creativity happens every day here, on multiple stages. Performers as diverse as Kendrick Lamar and the National Symphony Orchestra have graced its stages, it's where to go when you want to be inspired. Check out the free, daily 6pm show.

Founding Farmers

1924 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC

0.4 mi./9-minute walk

What is it about DC names? First Foggy Bottom, now this? With food that induces as many smiles as its name, Founding Fathers is our favorite breakfast spot, and it's got everything from healthy egg white omelettes to French toast with brandied crème anglaise. It also tends to have a line out the door, so be sure to make a reservation.

The National Mall

Central DC, between Constitution Ave NW and Independence Ave SW, stretching from the Lincoln Memorial on 23rd St NW to the Capitol Building on 1st St NE

1.9 mi./13 minutes via the Metro

The Washington Monument, the Smithsonian, the Lincoln Memorial, the National Air and Space Museum . . . stepping on the grounds of the National Mall is an awe-inspiring experience that will fill you with wonder. No trip to DC would be complete without a visit.

Rock Creek Park

5200 Glover Rd NW, Washington, DC (Nature Center/Planetarium)

4.0 mi./20 minutes via cab/Uber

This is where DC people go to get their zen back. With over 32 miles of lushly forested trails, Rock Creek Park is a great way to clear your head if you're trip to the city has been a hectic one. Or even if it hasn't. Wondering where to start wandering? Check out the Boulder Bridge Hike.

Looking forward to sitting on the edge of your hotel bed with your friends and family to discuss the day's plans?

We didn't think so. That's why living rooms were invented, right?

Your Varsity on K condo by Stay Alfred makes it easy to get a few folks together to relax while you whip-up some tasty crostinis with the fresh ingredients you picked up from the Whole Foods right down the street.

While you socialize, don't be surprised if you catch your guests' attention drifting -- chances are, they've been caught off-guard by the Potomac or city views offered by your posh pad's large, light-filled windows.

And when you're ready to head out and explore the town, you'll enjoy an easy walk to the Kennedy Center, or to Metro or Circulator stops that will whisk you away to amazing attractions like the National Mall, where you could easily spend days soaking in the history.

Make a Varsity on K condo by Stay Alfred your place in the city. You're worth it, baby.

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Great location! There was an issue with the AC however the owner’s contact person was quick to come and help. It was a bit challenging to keep cool but manageable. The bedroom doesn’t have blackout curtains to block the street light so we hung a blanket over. We would stay there again.

Room was nice, but on ground level so there was some road noise. Great area. I'd stay here again.

This was our first time on VRBO. So pleased that the property was just as advertised

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was perfect and in a great location. We did have one problem in that the bedroom TV didn’t work. We called Stay Alfred, but it was never fixed. Not a big deal, but wondered how a bigger problem would have been handled. That said, we loved everything and would return in a heartbeat!

Great location for touring D.C.

  • 5 of 5

Safe and secure entry, both from street and inside hallway/outside door. Neighborhood feels safe with college students day and night. Very clean with updated flooring and tile in bathroom and kitchen, and filled with amenities (coffee pods for coffee maker, basic toiletries, extra towels, etc.). Close in proximity to bike rentals, metro station, restaurants, and Whole Foods. 30 minutes walking from Pennsylvania/Constitution Ave. Couch and chair in living room is not as pictured and is not comfortable at all, but we did not spend much time lounging. Throw pillows would help! Very nice physical fitness room on 1st floor. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
