First of all I would like to say that this place in a very good location and you can walk all to many of the museums in DC. Lots of restaurants and cafes near by. Monique the innkeeper is very nice but personally I would not return. We reserved a room a couple of months in advance and maybe that particular room was the worst of all. I did not see the other rooms in the house but judging by the comments of previous guests ours was not like the other rooms. Price was high compared to other B&Bs where we have stayed. They require 2 minimum night stay and a non-refundable deposit so, you better make sure you really want to stay here. Our room was called the T. Morris and it was small and it needs a lot of TLC. There were missing tiles at the base of the fireplace, the dresser looked like something that was bought at the second hand store and it had a broken shelf, there were some tiles missing at the base of the enclosure, bed was uncomfortable, carpet dirty, holes on the wall, etc. In all it was the lack of attention to detail. The breakfast was decent and different every day but the first day my store bought quiche was over baked. We did get fresh fruit and juice every morning and waffles two days. Again these are only my personal observations based on comparisons with other overly B&Bs that we have stayed at.
