Garage Mahal was a great place to stay, would definitely recommend staying here. Easy to get around on public transport, just a couple of minutes walk to the 80 bus that takes you into the heart of DC. Heating was excellent (despite not really needing it over this warm Christmas)…

Marc's Garage Mahal is very affordable and conveniently located near downtown DC. I attended a conference at the Convention Center and was able to walk there (about 30 minutes) The days it wasn't raining. Marc is a great host and the communication was quick and efficient.

Lovely stay in the Garage Mahal. Such a nice comfortable bright space. Nice and private with your own entrance but Marc always on hand if you need anything. Marc was responsive, attentive and friendly. Lovely neighbourhood. Highly recommend.

Bloomingdale is one of fastest changing neighborhoods in DC, with new restaurants, cafes, and a neighborly feel. I've known my neighbors and their kids for several years.
