This is, hands down, the best B&B in DC -- or elsewhere, for that matter. You'll feel as though you're visiting with family -- with those far-flung relatives you really like! Laura and Raymond are consummate hosts. Breakfast features a fabulous composed fruit salad, yogurt, cheeses and meats, great coffee and, if you're lucky, the most divine Mascarpone French Toast....

We stayed for two nights. Everyone we dealt with was warm and friendly and professional. Laura and Raymond were so friendly and helpful. Our accommodations were excellent. We were able to easily access the city and enjoy a quiet retreat afterwards. Thank you to the whole Embassy Circle staff for a great time.

Thank you Laura and Raymond for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home in the heart of DC. Whether we were relaxing with our family and new friends in the living areas of your home (drinking good wine and snacking) or seeking the quiet and private luxury of our rooms, this was in every way a perfect stay.

We had a lovely stay at the Embassy Circle! Laura and Raymond, the owners, were warm and welcoming. We loved hearing about Raymond's inspiring life story. The breakfasts were excellent, with a different hot entrée every morning, and the wine, cheese, and conversation in the evenings were very enjoyable. The hosts are very knowledgeable about DC, and were happy to... More

We stayed for two nights over last week-end. The house is beautiful and the hosts were amazing. Laura and Raymond treated us like friends. They did everything to make us comfortable. The other guests were so interesting, we stayed up late discussing many topics. I enjoyed reading the story of Raymond's life journey. We stayed in room 111 on the... More

This was our 1st stay at the Embassy Circle Guest House and it won't be the last! The house is wonderful, the location is convenient, and breakfast delicious but the real find is Laura and Raymond. They are warm and gracious hosts that create the personality of the Embassy Circle Guest House and made our stay a wonderful experience.

My adult daughter and I just had the pleasure of staying at Embassy Circle Guest House for eight days during our trip to D.C. Laura and Raymond and their staff truly make this beautiful former embassy a delight. We stayed during Washington's heat wave and Embassy Circle was a cool, welcoming, and quiet sanctuary in beautiful and SAFE Embassy Row.... More

I love B&B's and have been fortunate to visit many in the US and abroad, this has to be on the top of my list. Our hosts Laura and Raymond have restored a beautiful home which is a wonderful sight to behold. They are a delightful couple that has a great staff backing them up. The Embassy Circle Guest House...
