It's a nice and informal B&B. Very clean room and bathroom and very authentic home experience. Bed was a bit squeaky, but comfortable. Breakfast was nice, a tad small selection of condiments, but satisfactory. Homemade pan-baked croissants which were extremely tasty! It's a bit of a walk from the nearest subway station and parking could be an issue, but it's... More

My first stay at a bed & breakfast - so, the first 12 hours or so took some getting used to - but, after that, I found myself enjoying coming back "home" to the William Lewis House and relaxing.... The furnishings are beautiful; the dining area always has a nice treat or two and I slept very comfortably. I was... More

Stayed here a year ago and came back this year. I love this place. Dave's sister is lovely and of course the dogs are delightful. The breakfast are plentiful and the conversation with the other guests is fabulous. It feels like you're staying at home and not like you're out on a business trip. Very relaxing! It's only about four... More

Dave is a great host! All in all, a wonderful stay! An excellent alternative to the generic dullness of a chain hotel. I planned to arrive late in the evening so prior to my arrival Dave provided clear instructions on how to access the home at a late hour and how to find my room. My room was comfortable and... More

I spent 3 nights at this B&B. Not only the victorian style bedrooms and bathrooms where excellent, but the breakfast and hosts kindness where great. We spent 3 lovely nights surrounded by peaceful and quiet spaces and lovely clasical music, as well as a tasty wine in the evening. We would certainly recommend this place to everyone, the neighbourhood is... More

This is a wonderful place to stay for vacation or business. It is well within walking distance to the metro. The amenities are fabulous: Full breakfasts on weekends (with accommodations for all diets) and extensive continental breakfast on weekdays that includes fresh fruit, juice, Greek yogurt, homemade oatmeal, souffle, hard boiled eggs and more, and complimentary wine in late afternoon...

We were in USA in Sept/Oct last year, and after staying at what I would call the most horrible B&B In NY, this place was fantastic. David and his sister were lovely and the place was very clean and very very comfortable. I will definitely go back there again.

Good location: very close to subway station; Relaxed environment: you can enjoy a glass of wine sitting in a cozy patio. Yummy homemade breakfast and snacks all the time. It totally worth it if you want to have a relaxed trip in DC.

I booked room 31 and 34 thinking the "shared bath" was between these two rooms. This was for my wedding weekend. When I found out they were in separate buildings, I cancelled the rooms and booked elsewhere. I got an email confirming the cancellation and was charged $25. Will I book again? NEVER... EVER.
