Wow, what a great place to stay. I came across Woodley Park Guest House whilst searching for affordable accommodation in the DC area. I decided to give it a try and so I booked a single room with a shared bathroom and what a great decision that turned out to be. The room was quite small but very clean and comfortable and suited me perfectly and although I was a bit worried about having to share a bathroom this was no problem at all. The house itself is in a lovely area close to the centre of Washington DC and was a perfect launching pad for my adventures into the capital and surrounds.
A highlight of my stay would be going down to breakfast every morning and sitting at a communal table with a diverse and ever-changing array of fellow guests and partaking in conversations that ranged from recent advances in gene therapy and plasma physics, to trying and failing to explain cricket to Americans and the problems related to fitting toilets in small bathrooms (thanks for that Joe). I also received some personal good news whilst I was staying at the guest house and the owner, Courtney and her staff went out of their way to help me celebrate the event which was greatly appreciated.
In all, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Woodley Park Guest House and I was made to feel at home from the moment I arrived until I reluctantly walked out of the front door six days later. I cannot recommend the place more highly.
