“Cannot say enough positives about this B&B!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

This was my first experience at a B&B. The Woodley Park Guest House is on my "will always stay there wahen in D.C." list. It is so comfortable...it was like coming home after a long day at a conference. Courtney (owner) greets you at every breakfast and takes a personal interest in you (and remembers your name after the first meeting!) Ingrid was such a great morning hostess. Although she is quiet, her attention to your needs cannot be beat. And, although I know she is ready to graduate from school soon...Janet was such an entertaining hostess in the evenings. She not only manned the desk, but spent time personally engaging with the guests (yet not intruding on those who wanted quiet). She knew right away I was gluten intolerant and talked about how the morning menu was improved to meet needs of people with special diet needs. If you want comfort and pampering...this is definitely the place!

Room Tip: I was on third floor with a beautiful view of the street. Although I shared a shower in the hall, th...

I am a fan of bed and breakfast options; but not for business. I ended up staying at the Woodley because my conference hotel was not available. It was a great surprise because it was very quiet, very private, and truly charming. The staff was very helpful and accommodating, the breakfast was fresh and healthy, and my room was large and comfortable. And while I am a self-confessed television addict; the quiet was a peaceful change. I encourage you to give it a try for business or pleasure!

Four of us Mom’s stayed at the Beautiful Woodley Park Bed & Breakfast from July 19 till July 22. We were in DC for the National Downs Syndrome Congress with our adult Downs Syndrome kids. Our kids stayed at a different site. They wanted to show their independence from us. We loved staying at the Woodley B&B. Courtney and her whole staff were so friendly and so helpful to us. The rooms were really nice and quite. The breakfasts were really like a family was eating together. Everyone felt like we were friends and by the time we left on our last day we had made so many friends from all over the world. Courtney and her staff would sit and talk with us and helped us so much with things to do and see in DC. They even helped us plan a dinner together with our adult Downs Syndrome kids.
It was so nice to go back to the Woodley B&B every evening to the peace and quite after long hectic and busy days. So peaceful to get a cookie and cup of coffee and sit on the beautiful front porch of the Woodley B&B. I sure miss sitting on that porch!!!!!!

Room Tip: I would say all the rooms would be great!!!

The positive reviews are all true! The overall ambience of the Woodley Park Guest House is tasteful, sparkling, and welcoming. Most of all, it's the staff that makes this inn special. Kelly, Ingrid, and Courtney are down-to-earth, omni-competent, and have just the right attitude toward guests. They roll with you, understanding your needs and maintaining such a positive, honest outlook that it pervades the whole place. This inn is run so well you feel relaxed and comfortable in every way. We could have sat on the front porch for hours.

Staying at the quiet of Woodley Park Guest House for the fourth time last week
I slept through the big storm in DC. There was no power outage and we remained
comfortable and serene as thousands in the area lost power then and remain
without power today. Underground utilities in the area may be the explanation.

For this immunity to power loss plus the addition of delicious salmon to the
breakfast menu, I again recommend this lovely B and B to DC visitors. For its
comfort, beauty, excellent staff and location it’s my home away from home in DC.

Room Tip: Lower floor rooms are exceptionally quiet.

In a city where people can feel alone in a crowd, Woodley Park Guest House provides a genuinely warm welcome to guests of all ages and nations. At breakfast I got to chat to guests from the USA, Australia, France, Belgium and the UK. the conversation is encouraged by the owners Courtney and Joe who make sure guests are introduced to each other and the leisurely casual breakfast enables guests to relax before heading out for the day. I stayed in room 123. It was comfortable, clean and quiet, and the view across to the gardens opposite was pleasant. I loved the complimentary brownies and cookies and being able to get a hot drink at any time. Breakfast was more than adequate with cereals, fresh fruit salad, juice, breads, jams, plus smoked salmon and boiled eggs. Guests helped themselves to as much as they wanted and in whatever combination they wanted. The guest house is one minute from the Metro (elevator exit) and 2 minutes to a good range of places to eat - French, Italian and best of all the fab Lebanese Taverna (try the $9 vegetarian mezza platter with homemade pitta bread). As a solo traveller it's so important to stay somewhere that's not only safe, but where you feel they care that you have a pleasant stay. Whilst I've stayed in luxury hotels in many countries this is one of the few places where I can say 'I'll be back'. Thank you Courtney, Joe, Kelly and the rest of the team and keep up the good work.
