Our Washington DC vacation could have been a disaster with the shut down but it was a wonderful experience in part due to our stay at Cardozo house. The home is lovely and decorated with fantastic African masks and sculpture. Our arrival was easy and parking was convenient. We did not meet our host but everything was as expected. Our room was lovely, clean and homey. We had the use of a refrigerator in our room and could use the kitchen, dining room and living room as we liked. We had breakfast in the dining room with food we bought at the Whole Foods just blocks away, so there was no problem that this home did not include breakfast, better for us because we were not constrained by a meal schedule and could get out early. it was in a fantastic neighborhood with shops, restaurants, clubs and other great atmosphere but also a 45 minute stroll from the Mall and all of the (closed) attractions there. We wouldn't do Washington any other way than by B&B and Cardozo house was equal to others we have stayed at, the lack of a served breakfast did not make a difference to us at all. If you need to be pampered then a hotel is probably the route for you, but if you want to experience the "real" Washington neighborhoods and lifestyle, B&B is the best way to do it and Cardozo house was a gem.
