This is a lovely B& B, a victorian home built in 1883, so if you are looking for alot of modern furnishings and appliances presented within the shell of an older home, this is not the place for you. We stayed here for a conference at the DC Convention Center which is only a few blocks away and the location was great. In addition, parking was provided behind the house. Standing in Logan Circle at night (when there is little or no traffic) is like stepping back in time. Walking up to the B&B is also like stepping back in time - the wooden staircase, the beautiful moldings, the pocketdoors to the parlor and the furnishings in the public areas are all period-perfect. The hosts, Eric and Carl, are friendly and gracious and prepare delicious breakfasts. Our bedroom was large, and the queen size bed was comfortable. The steam heat in March was loud and heated up the room so much that we turned on the air-conditioner (the vents needed a good dusting). The bathroom was old (not from the 1880s - but old) though everything worked fine. We were a little surprised by two things: the TV in our large room was tiny and across the room. Watching it as you lay in bed, you could only see your toes. Although the room decor was of the period which is part of the ambiance of the house, a larger TV would have been nice. Secondly, the only thing provided in the bathroom was soap - there was no shampoo, conditioner, or body lotion. Its a little thing, but something that makes a guest feel a bit pampered when they are traveling. These things aside, staying in the B& B felt like we were experiencing a little bit of Washington DC history.
