I love this place, and Lucius is the best. This is the second time I have stayed in "The Retro Room," this time for two weeks. I make monthly trips to DC and if I stop staying at Lucius' place, it would only be because I want to get to know another neighborhood. But I also love this neighborhood - it is safe and friendly and there are some great restaurants. My favorite right now is Homestead (located on Georgia Ave), which has great salads, healthy fare, and amazing "two for $5" tacos on Tuesdays. Homestead is located between Lucius' place and the Georgia Ave-Petworth metro station, which is six blocks away. The house is absolutely beautiful, the room is very aesthetically adorned, the bed is amazingly comfortable with a nice, firm mattress, and the house and room are absolutely spotless. I can't say enough good things, and now I just love seeing Lucius as well.
