I couldn't have asked for a nice location. It was just a block from where I had to go (House and Senate office buildings) yet in a nice neighborhood feel. It was very easy to reach by metro.

This accomodation is a single unit ( bedroom and sitting room) in Celia's own home. with the private bathroom just outside the unit's entry door.

Breakfast each morning was customized for me, including NY Times. The surprise was that in addition to the very comfortable antique brass bed (with a plethora of pillow choices), there was my very own sitting... More

House old and beautiful. Bathroom could have been cleaner. The AC did not cool the bedroom and the WIFI was a weak connection.
