I didn't know what to expect, but this guesthouse was a dream. It's a mansion and former embassy- spotless and beautiful in every way. It was the most memorable part of my trip to DC. The owners, Raymond and Laura, are charming and wonderful people- warm and inviting. And the location is the best. A nice place to walk, shop... More

Well-maintained and well-appointed. Great location, comfortable bed and room, friendly and helpful hosts and staff. When we come back to Washington DC we will stay here again. I will definitely recommend the Embassy Circle Guest House to our friends.

We arrived very late as our flight was delayed but we were given special instructions on where to pick up the keys and how to get to our room. The minute we walked in to the Guesthouse, we felt like we were walking into someone's house - warm and inviting and all lit up for us. Our room no 122... More

The neighborhood is lovely, and it is terrific to be surrounded by good restaurants and shops. The rooms are very quiet, and the plush towels, fine soaps, and pretty rooms are wonderful. I would recommend the rooms on the second and third floors. The place is also immaculate. Breakfast is filling with your choice of a handful of cereals, fresh... More

My husband & I split our Washington visit between two locations and regretted leaving the Embassy Circle Guest House to venue towards town and our second location. Absolutely endorse the 5 Star rating. Everything about The House is outstanding. The rooms are spacious, the beds & linen devine and absolute everything is cover - right down to the navy face...

The Embassy Circle Guesthouse is luxurious in its fittings & decor & is spotlessly clean & welcoming.The amenities even surpass the photos supplied on the website. It is situated in an interesting neighbourhood, full of lovely homes & embassies with many restaurants nearby to choose from in the evening. However, the main thing that make the place special are the... More

My wife and I spent three fantastic nights here to start our US East Coast holiday and do not want to leave. The best possible start to a holiday I have ever had and it scares me a little that this is indeed a hard act to follow. Every positive and 5 star review on here is warranted so rather... More

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.
