Lanier Heights is a small residential area considered part of the more prominent Adams Morgan neighborhood in the northwest quadrant of Washington, DC. Adjacent neighborhoods include Columbia Heights, Kalorama, and Mount Pleasant to the north.

Low and mid-rise apartment buildings are also present as well as homes with a Classic Revival-style architecture. The Metro Stations closest to Lanier Heights include Woodley-Park and Columbia Heights. Lanier Heights boundaries run from Harvard Street to the north, Adams Mill Road to the west and south, and Columbia Road to the southeast.
