See apartments in Dupont Circle, Georgetown, and more

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various Washington, D.C. neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $3,500/month.

↑ In Woodley Park, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment is on the market with amenities like 24-hour concierge services, complimentary breakfast, and a shared rooftop terrace. According to the listing, this 1,184-square-foot unit is newly renovated with granite countertops, modern fixtures, and stainless steel appliances. It doesn't look like there's a washer and dryer available in the unit, but there is shared laundry in the building. The asking price is a little over budget at $3,555/month.

↑ For $3,540/month, you can rent this Foggy Bottom apartment with a private patio or balcony, hardwood flooring, and a fitness center in the development. With 867 square feet of space, this two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit allows cats and small dogs and also comes with a washer and dryer.

↑ While renting a one-bedroom apartment for $3,510/month might not seem like the most reasonable offer to accept, it's worth noting that this 850-square-foot apartment is fully furnished and comes with a full-size bed, a 40'' HDTV, washer and dryer, and one parking spot. The location isn't too bad either as it's only two blocks away from the Dupont Circle Metro station.

↑ In Georgetown, this one-bedroom, two-bathroom unit comes with a washer and dryer, a den with French doors that lead to a private brick patio, and a security system in place. The space totals 1,200 square feet and comes with a price tag of $3,500/month. Sorry cat and dog owners, but no pets are allowed.

↑ Looking to live a little closer to a lively nightlife scene? In U Street Corridor, you can rent this two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom unit for $3,500/month. The unit spans 1,198 square feet over two stories and features a renovated kitchen, private balcony, and original hardwood flooring. The rent covers all utilities as well as Direct TV. Cats and small dogs are only allowed on a case-by-case basis.

↑ This final rental is also the largest unit on the list. With 2,389 square feet of space, renters have the chance to nab this three-bedroom, three-bathroom row house in Capitol Hill for $3,500/month. According to the listing, all of the appliances are new, there is a new Nest thermostat, and the basement is fully finished. The basement also features one bedroom and one bathroom as well as a separate exit. Other highlights include walk-in closets, a back patio, and a storage unit in the back.
