Welcome home feeling and always a greeting, smile and good cheer. There is many places to live in D.C. but I would say they do not have the professionalism and service of Kenmore Apartments. It is a safe, secure place to call home. Thank you

I have been living at the Kenmore for about a year now. The Kenmore is a great place for the price. My favorite thing about The Kenmore is that it is located on a nice strip of stores and restaurants. Safeway, CVS, an independent grocery store, a yog...

I lived at the Kenmore 7 years and moved a few months ago. I moved in around 2003 when the building was owned by Archstone and it was a great value for the price and relatively quiet. Most of the neighbors were older and settled. In 2006 the building...
