We stayed at the Embassy Circle Guest House for 4 nights in July 2015. It is very well located: just a short metro or taxi ride from the centre of Washington; walking distance from lots of local restaurants and shops; and a leisurely 25 minute walk from Georgetown. What is exceptional about the Embassy Circle Guest House is the hospitality... More

I'm so glad we chose to stay at Embassy Circle Guest House. It totally enhanced our experience in Washington! We booked two rooms as we were traveling with our 21 year old daughter. While most of the clientele were our age our daughter also loved staying here as Laura and Raymond do such a fantastic job of engaging with their... More

From the moment my cab door opened on my arrival at Embassy Circle, I was welcomed warmly by name, my bag carried, and a cooling calm elegance greeted me out of the hot day, I knew I had found my perfect home for the next 5 nights. I was right! The graciousness, generosity, and genuine warmth of owners Laura and... More

This trip was a long-weekend getaway long overdue. The location was great but in comparison to other B&B's we've visited, it lacked a lot of the "special" things we've experienced at other B&B's. The room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was adequate but nothing special -- no "hot" breakfast -- just cereals, granola, yogurt, fruit and some cakes/muffins. If... More

This 11-room bed and breakfast is located right in the heart of Embassy Row in the DuPont Circle area of Washington DC. It is within easy walking distance to the DuPont Circle Metro Station, and many outstanding restaurants. The Inn is beautifully decorated, and very comfortable. My husband and I stayed in room 134 on the 3rd floor of the... More

From the moment we stepped inside we knew our stay in Washington would be wonderful. This house has been beautifully restored with attention to every detail. Upon our arrival we were immediately greeted by the owners, Laura and Raymond, and invited to share in a glass of wine. As we sat in the parlour we chatted with people from Denmark,... More

One of the highlights of our recent 3 day trip to Washington was our stay at the Embassy Circle Guest House. We chose the Pearl Gazvin room, which was a very spacious, elegant and comfortable room on the second floor. We loved the decor and natural light from the large windows and were impressed with the comfort of the bed... More

I knew from the other Trip Advisor reviews -- and there are a lot! -- that this guest house would be lovely. And it was . . . right down to the last detail Take time to read other reviews, especially during the "month" you would like to visit. That way you get a feel for the weather, etc. We... More

My girlfriend and I live in Washington, DC and decided to celebrate her birthday with a night at the Kennedy Center and a stay at the Embassy Circle Guest House. From the minute we walked in to the minute we left we could not have been made to feel more at home. The entire staff was warm, welcoming, and accommodating.... More

Beautiful facility with comfortable spotless rooms - cozy parlor and breakfast room - late afternoon drinks and snacks - located centrally near Metro stop but in quiet neighborhood. A great travel value - with a personal touch big downtown hotels cannot match.
