The location of the Ellington is great and the cost isn't bad compared to other buildings around the area. However, the building is older than most of the other nearby options. The newly redone roof is a huge plus.

I've lived at the Ellington for almost two years. It's a superb location - not even a block to the metro. I thought the rent was high when I first moved in - but it's difficult to find something comparable, nevermind cheaper. The parking is high but ...
