Located within a glass and steel structure designed by MA, Whyle offers a reimagined approach to the extended stay. Thoughtfully designed apartments are move-in ready with fully equipped kitchens, custom furnishings, handpicked artworks, vintage rugs, top-quality linens, and even living plants—everything needed to provide a home away from home for Whyle’s temporary residents.

Whyle provides an elevated extended-stay experience through clean and simple apartment interiors, furnished for comfort, ease, and beauty. Within each bespoke dwelling, textures and layers work in harmony to cultivate a feeling that everything has a place and that there is a place for everything.

Lofty one-bedroom apartments feature full size kitchens designed for living, working, and entertaining in style. From washers to wine glasses, the apartments are thoughtfully outfitted with everything needed to find a new daily routine.

The two-bedroom apartments offer even more space. In addition to the thoughtful furnishings and premium touches found in every Whyle unit, these apartments also include two full bathrooms—one en suite and one accessible from the open, airy common areas—and more room to share with family or friends.

Whyle residents also have access to amenities such as a state-of-the-art fitness center and yoga studio featuring custom millwork, and a rooftop pool deck.

Floor-to-ceiling windows, portions of which are operable, maximize natural light and air. Careful attention was also paid to create cool, dark, and quiet bedrooms—a place of rest and respite within the lively U Street Corridor neighborhood.

To create bespoke environments and maximize space efficiency, MA designed several custom furnishings in-house, including an oak dining bench with a leather seat pad.
