I stayed two nights at Independence House in January 2016 and enjoyed it greatly. I was in town for business on Capitol Hill and the location was unbeatable for visiting House and Senate offices. Mary Jo was a great host. The accommodations were very comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was simple, quick, and what I needed (pastries, cereal, toast, coffee, juice,... More

We just finished a four-night stay at this great B&B just a few blocks from Capitol Hill. It was wonderful. Nice accommodations in a wonderful neighborhood. Easy walk to the metro and not a far taxi ride from DCA either. The breakfast was super.....fresh fruit, cereals and breads and great coffee. The hostess is great to visit with and keeps... More

My daughter and I just visited D.C. for an event, and stayed at Mary Jo's Independence House B&B. We had a wonderful experience. Mary Jo was very informative about places to eat, safety, and accommodating, as we wanted to visit a Museum before our departure and we had to leave our suitcase there later than check out time. The house... More

I stayed at Independence House from 31 March - 3 April, and I couldn't have felt more comfortable and at home. Mary Jo is a perfect a delightful hostess. She gave me excellent directions, met me when I arrived, provided an excellent "continental" breakfast (which was just right for my needs), and was very pleasant to talk with. The room... More

If you are looking for an excellent B and B on Capitol Hill, this is the place. Close to Pennsylvania, Eastern Market and the Eastern Market Metro we found this B and B to be everything we were looking for. Located on a quiet street not far from all the above mentioned sights, we were very happy with the service... More

I stayed at Independence House B and B for three nights in early May. Mary Jo was very welcoming and couldn't have been more accommodating to my schedule and needs. The location is wonderful--on a very quiet street in a charming neighborhood. The bedroom and "sitting" room are spacious and very comfortable. The Metro is about 3 blocks away, and... More
