We're on an extended road trip and are staying only in B and B's. There is a reason this one is rated so well by the Tripadvisor community. The location is great - close to the zoo, subway, Dupont Circle, walkable restaurants and easy to get a taxi. It is close to Connecticut Street which is a main artery, but far enough away to not hear any noise (totally quiet at night). While the house has been gutted and refitted as a hotel, meaning the interior has none of the original details - our room is on the larger side with a rocking view of the gardens across the street. All textiles are high end - great sheets, towels, etc. and beautifully decorated in a mix of antiques with cool original, funky art. The staff is helpful and nice. Free Wifi and on site parking, too. This has to be one of the best values in DC.
