my wife and i just got back after spending 3 nites in the mt vernon square b&b. very conviently located...about a 20 min easy walk to the mall, smithsonian museums, etc. there are only 4 rooms available; we didn't see any other rooms, but ours (state room) was large, comfy, flat screen, tv, free wifi, nice coffee maker (kehrung, more upscale than what you usually find)...breakfast (we had 2) were very good, eaten family style with the other guests at a large dining table...keith, the owner, could not be more accomdating. safeway just 2 blocks away (there's a small fridge in the room). have to say we both thought the mt vernon sqaure b&b was a perfect place to stay while we explored DC. would not hesitate to stay there again.
