All in all, a good experience. We stayed 5 nights. We had some concern about street noise that others reported (although the neighborhood is not all that loud), so we asked for the quietest room and got Magnolia and had no noise problems at all. That room is small but comfortable in bed, decor and atmosphere. However, maybe in the effort to maintain the vintage look, the owners have let things become a little grungy - the closet area was pretty antiquated, wiring along the floor, decrepit paint in places. As others have said, the downstairs parlor is quite elegant. Wi-fi internet worked fine. Breakfast was typically good mixed fruit, toast, and a hot dish, usually of eggs. We did request an alternative once and the next day got cereal and excellent pancakes. The hosts were courteous and helpful, though not visibly around very much. One demerit - the bed was never made up during our stay. Also, the room card says towels are changed every 3 days, but this never happened until one of us got them from the linen cupboard in the hall. The location turns out to be good, but it takes a little exploring and figuring. We found the local bus lines 2 blocks away to be much more useful than the nearest Metro for getting into the major tourist areas like the Mall. We felt no concern about the neighborhood -- Logan Circle has evidently come up a great deal in just the past few years, and there are lots of restaurants a couple blocks away.
