As an employee of a major travel site I don't write bad reviews very often as I understand every situation is unique. My particular experience here was horrifying and the manager told me this wasn't the restaurants first incident of this kind. if I could rate this without any bubbles at all - I would.

We spent two nights at the Carriage House and were satisfied with the level of comfort that was provided. We don't need to be coddled when we travel and we were fine with the independence that we found here. Our bedroom was lovely and very quiet. The bed was firm and comfortable. Everything was very clean and housekeeping did a... More

Out hosts were very attentive and kind. We were impressed with the accommodations and location to the main area of the city. We had a excellent visit to Washington and will absolutely book a future stay here. Lauren and Diane were wonderful. We felt at home! A+++

Lauren Powell is a wonderful innkeeper and the Carriage House is an eclectic mix of the family's world travels and decorating skills. The location can't be beat - you can walk from the B&B to the Library of Congress, Capitol Hill, Smithsonian, even the Lincoln Memorial if you're feeling ambitious. Should you arrive by Amtrak, find your way in Union... More

This B&B is like your own home...but way better. The house is amazing. I enjoyed the innkeepers - they were very friendly and helpful. My room was private and bed was soft and relaxing. They've gone to endless lengths on the decor and have the staples around (water, lite snacks, etc.). Some rooms have a cosy, shared porch. **I would... More

Great experience overall! I arrived in the evening, and received a very warm welcome. I was shown around the house: my room, which was lovely, the kitchen where I could have breakfast, and was treated with a glass of wine. I didn't see the hostess after that, but the room was cleaned and towels were changed every day. It's an... More

We booked this charming town home for a weeklong stay with our family of four. I can't say enough wonderful things about the Carriage House! First, the location was fabulous! Close to the Metro, great restaurants on 8th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, across the street from a nice, neighborhood park, and nestled in a charming Capitol Hill neighborhood. With children,...

My wife did her homework on the web and we selected this sight unseen. Wow! What a fantastic place! These folks have done a great job in preserving the 'atmosphere' and character of the historic home, plus adding a bit of their own touch. We loved the space foxes! This is a perfect location for visiting all the main activities... More

I was very happy with the accomodation and facilities. The Wi-Fi access was a real plus. The only recomendation would be to have some one to assist with breakfast. The house is a great period house and located very well to access all important tourist locations by foot.

This place has it all: character, location, fully furnished kitchen, and responsible hosts. It was clean and they even provided juice and bread to get you started! It was perfect for our 3 adults and 2 teenagers. I don't think it would be safe for toddlers due to the lovely spiral staircase and stone floors. The couch does not fold... More
