What a great five night stay at the Embassy Circle Guesthouse! I was looking for an alternative to a big city hotel and found it in spades at this gem of a B&B. Some high points:
• Sense of place – the Guesthouse is a meticulously restored former embassy with fine traditional furnishings and hand picked artwork. The ambience is one of comfort and elegance.
• Friendly, warm hospitality – our hosts, Laura and Raymond, were fantastic in making guests feel welcome. There is a positive energy that emanates from their hands-on care; here are two people who genuinely enjoy being innkeepers.
• At breakfast and the late afternoon happy hour, guests would gather and discuss where they’ve been and swap stories. We met really interesting people from the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia. The managers, Angela and Betty were also happy to assist with any reservations, directions or advice.
• My husband had a special dietary requirement and we really appreciated how they accommodated him. Breakfasts always had fresh fruit salad, juices, a hot dish, breads and salmon.
• Comfortable beds and well thought out rooms and bathrooms. We had a room on the third floor. It’s easy to get a good nights rest here!
• Immaculately clean.
• Reliable wi-fi.
• Location – easy access to the metro and many restaurants for dinner in the area. We loved walking around the immediate vicinity with the embassies and also the short walk to Georgetown.
There is no doubt that when we return to Washington, D.C., it will be to the Embassy Circle Guesthouse!
