“New to DC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

Located in a quiet historic district you aren't far from all the fun things to see and do. Don, the owner is a wealth of info and the hosts Carl and Eric start your day with fabalous breakfasts. It is a short walk to the bus stop or the rail which will take you all over the city or most places are in walking distance. Highly recommend this B&B.

Where to begin?

Well, let's start with the innkeeper himself. Don was cordial, welcoming, full of information and a teller of wonderful stories. He made sure we were comfortable and helped us whenever we needed.

The breakfasts were great. The decor was awesome. The comfort level was fantastic. And the house is just so unique. It was so much better than staying in a hotel. It's just such a fantastic place. I can't gush enough about it. The feel of the house is something you CANNOT get anywhere.

Value is amazing

Did I mention how great Don was?

Also, wonderful location. Safe. Accessible to everywhere.

I just got home and couldn't be happier. This is a must-book place. I will be back.

My coworker and I were attending a conference in DC, so our husbands came along and we decided to book rooms here, since it was so close to the convention center. We were so happy to have stayed here! The house itself was easy to find, and very well-situated: it was close enough to walk to any public transit (we utilized the subway system frequently, but there was a bus stop right outside the front door had we chosen to use it), but it was in a quiet section of neighborhood. Located in a circle, there is a lovely little park in the middle that seemed to be the spot where professionals spent time with their dogs after the workday. The rooms were large and had very high ceilings. There's a tv as well as wi-fi in the rooms. The showers were wonderful, as was the amount of storage for clothing and items. There was even a small fridge in each room (Which was a great surprise!). The owner, Don, very clearly loves the home and is passionate about maintaining it. The gem of the stay was the breakfast each morning. (Be aware, for those who like sleeping in, the breakfast is served at 8, but it's worth getting up for!). Eric and Carl are fantastic chefs and such friendly people, and Don has all sorts of interesting stories of his work in photography, journalism and radio. If you like the B & B experience, you can't ask for better than the Chester Arthur House. I would definitely go back.

Room Tip: The Magnolia room is quiet and shaded by the tree located right outside the window.

My wife and I came to Washington DC to celebrate my 60th birthday. We stayed at the Chester Arthur House for 2 nights. We had a great time. Don, Eric and Carl were super. It was quite an experience to live in a home built in the 1880's. Don gave us some suggestions on where to eat and what to visit. The place is about a half hour walk to the the major museums. The breakfast was great. I would recommend getting the parking option. Finding parking in DC can be a challenge. It was fun staying in a home built during the 1800's.

My husband and I visited Washington DC over the Holidays and we stayed a week at the Chester Arthur House. We loved every minute of it. The rooms were great, filled with historic decour. The morning breakfasts were scrumptious and the conversations with the owner, Don, and two gentlemen who work there, Eric and Carl were informative and helpful to navigating the city. My husband and I would most definitely recommond a visit to the Chester Arthur house.

Check in 01/19/2011, eight nights, almost a year ago
We thought the location was pretty good, if one heads towards the Whole Foods area, about 5 -7 short blocks away. The subway is about the same distance, maybe further. We walked to the mall and everywhere else. The building is old: it looked and felt old. but it had its' charm. We stayed upstairs in a large room overlooking the circle, noise was not an issue. It could have been a bit more clean, though I am not saying it was dirty.
Breakfast was an odd situation for us, in that it was served promptly at 8AM, with very little wiggle room.
