My second stay at Celia's to join in the celebration of the 50th Anniversary March on Washington. and as great as the first. Perfect location, lovely home, delicious breakfast, and very, very gracious and helpful hostess! This is an ideal location for visiting the Capitol!

I was in DC for the birth of my granddaughter. I stayed with Celia for three very busy weeks and she could not have been more accommodating! I was able to travel with my bike. The public pool is located next to Eastern Market. A fitness center is two blocks away.

The location can't be beat. I was there for business and needed to spend time on Capitol Hill. The inn is across the street from one of the Library of Congress buildings, a 5 minute walk to the House office buildings, and a 10 minute walk to the Senate office buildings. Celia is a wonderful host. Breakfast is simple, but... More

Spent five nights at Celia's Place in late May 2013. Did some B&B research to find it, but had no idea it would turn out to be SUCH an interesting experience. Two blocks from the Capitol and four blocks from Capitol South Metro station, it is also within easy walking distance of the Eastern Market and several excellent restaurants on... More

Celia's was a wonderful place to stay for 1 week while celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary in DC. It was so very close to the Capital, Mall, subway and even rental bikes. We bonded quickly to her two beautiful and velvety soft black cats that we felt completely at home. We loved the guest sitting room off the bedroom both... More

Location: a very pretty neighborhood 2 blocks from the Capitol with public transportation and plenty of good restaurants close by. Breakfast: Celia offered a wonderful fresh mixed berry/fruit salad, local bakery bread for toast, wide selection of cereals and juices, delicious coffee, Washington Post or NY Times papers, plus delightful conversation as you wish -- in a sunny dining room....

I had a brief 2-night stay during cold winter weather. It was a business visit. I found Celia's to be comfortable, like staying in a friend's extra guest room, which was exactly the mood I was looking for. The row house is narrow and the guest room has an attached sitting room that catches the morning sun and has a... More

Lovely home with wonderful style. With books, artwork, and framed photography at every corner, along with the house's natural historic charm, it is definitely a peaceful and creative space. The bed and couch in sitting room are extremely comfortable! I'm not a big breakfast person, but there was a large spread for me to choose from. It's also around the... More

Celia's Place is one of the most unusual and interesting B&Bs we have ever stayed in: the house is full of books, photographs and fascinating items connected to Celia's life. Her recommendation on places to see and things to do in Washington were much appreciated and we learnt a lot just from talking to her. All the 'normal' B&B aspects... More
