Nice accomodation in a period home. Great breakfast, hot water, clean rooms. Not as close to the metro as we would have liked for traveling without a car, we had to walk quite a ways with our luggage. Beautiful neighborhood and plenty of restaurants.

We spent three nights at this historical B&B. We loved the location~close to transportation and great restaurants. Greeted by the owner, Don Smith, upon arrival. That evening and throughout our stay we heard several interesting things about the house itself and Logan Circle. We had an outstanding breakfast each morning prepared by their chef. We stayed in the Highland Suite...

Thanks for this gracious review. We're disappointed at not earning the fifth star, which we gather is because we don't have an elevator. Our website explains that this is a private home, not a commercial inn, and all the rooms are walk-up. Glad everything else met your approval, though.

We spent 5 wonderful nights at the Chester Arthur B&B at Logan Circle while on a vacation to Washington DC. We would have stayed longer except they had already rented our room out for the rest of the week. We stayed in the Cinnamon Room, and it was perfect for our needs, including having the best shower ever. Don was...

We travelled to Washington to visit the historic sites and musueum. At the top of the list of a great weekend was our stay at this House. Not only the historic and beautifully restored house, great location but more importantly the warm welcome of our host, Donald Smith. Donald really went out of his way to make our stay enjoyable....

Don is a fascinating host, full of stories from his years with the Washington Post, National Geographic, and the journey to his first novel. Eric cooks unique and delicious breakfasts like a 5 star chef, with his own share of stories if you're inclined to hang around and chat. Logan Circle is an easy walk from the National Mall museums...

Fabulous for a couple who enjoys a quiet room! We stayed in the Magnolia Room for 5 heavenly nights! Two block walk gets you to restaurants, coffee house, Whole Foods, theatre and much more. Grab bus #54 to the National Mall, it runs all the time. Or a cab ride is so close it's inexpensive. Beautiful breakfast, convivial conversation with...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this inn! The sitting rooms were so beautiful and comfortable, with their antique sofas. The room was lovely, the air-conditioning welcome. The host was an interesting guy, fun to talk with. We ended up ordering the book he wrote that was recently published. Very conveniently located on the beautiful Logan Square.

July, you are so kind, and thanks so much for taking the time to give us this great feedback. Thanks also for buying my debut novel, "The Constable's Tale," which has been getting very nice critic reviews, including from the NY Time Review of Books last week. Hope you like it too!

We had a wonderful time and stayed cheaper than if we had stayed at a busy hotel, with a great breakfast every morning to boot. This home is located right within Logan Circle. We fed the birds every morning in the park. They come right up to your feet. The home is located in a very nice neighborhood within walking...

Thank you for your generous words. Our central location is among the most often mentioned reasons we hear for staying with us. We have about 40 restaurants within a 10-block radius. We also appreciate your comments on our candle-lit breakfast experience. I (Don, the owner) think that's my favorite part!
