Staff are awesome, setting is outstanding and the price is right! Love the unique but homey atmosphere. The food is amazing with a terrific beer and cider menu. Locally sourced dinner with attention to detail, delicious breakfast included.

This lovely and 'fin de siecle' decorated city house was a pleasure to stay in. We stayed in room #3 which is very spacious and has a nice street view. You really feel at home and welcome - a bit like visiting your excentric uncle :-) lot's of pictures, silksofas and pretty glass lamps. We enjoyed a tasty dinner and... More

This restaurant is tucked away inside a cute old brownstone that has been turned into an inn. Bottom floor is a cute bar and lounge. Upper floor is restaurant. You will feel like you have been transported back in time to an old cozy European inn. Food is on the upper end of the price scale, but was very nice... More

I have stayed all around DC but always wanted to stay here. It is a charming old property in the heart of DC (closest Metro-Dupont Circle). Room is very quiet especially since there is no TV in any room. There is no elevator either so be prepared to climb up to 4 floors. Free coffee in the morning and continental... More

Although we only stayed one night, we were quite impressed. Most hotels were booked due to a city-wide conference and we were still trying to find a room at a reasonable price (considering it's DC). We were about to book a room in Silver Springs when we came across a Tripadvisor review mentioning this Inn. The hotel is close to... More

I've been eating here for a decade and finally had occasion to stay here. I was excited! I knew what to expect in terms of decor, style and of course the food. During our trip they were in line with what one would expect and what you see in the pictures, no surprises there. What was shocking was the service.... More

This is a charming inn near Dupont Circle. The lighting in our room was a bit dim, but the lovely furniture made up for that. The staff was very helpful and the meals were fantastic! We all loved our stay and would definitely go back!

Stayed here for a week with a woman friend and we loved it. Had a large, airy room with two queen beds and private bath. It was a great place to come "home" to after a day sightseeing. The breakfast, which is included, is very good and we had dinner several times in the restaurant and it was delicious. Would... More

I went with a group that had a predetermined menu. I chose the scallop dish. I had three scallops on my plate. They were delicious, but only three?? The Death by Chocolate was a highlight. There was a bathroom in our room. The people I came with felt weird for going to bathroom right next to our table.

Just had lunch here last week, and the food was terrific. I ordered a salad that was incredibly fresh and tasty. The carrot cake is very moist.We sat outside on a nice day and it was cool and comfortable. Service was good.
