My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights in late September and all we can say is WOW!
We prefer to stay in B&B's while on vacation and Laura and Raymond made our stay at Embassy Circle feel just like being with old friends-comfortable, charming and just the "salt of the earth".
So what made this the most special B&B'S experience every:
~evening one after drinks, Raymond invited all the guest to partake in a traditional Lebanese feast that he and the staff had spent all afternoon preparing and cooking. Not only was it great food, he explained each dish and how it was prepared. All we had room for that night was to walk around the local cafe and buy a superb gelato.
~evening two was Raymond's follow up of a degustation of Lebanese deserts. We missed those delights as we were back late from sightseeing but all reports from the other guests were excellent
~ they are great conversationalists and have a good sense of humour. They or the staff always seem to be on hand to deal with any questions, helpful suggestions, organise cloths washing in house, book cabs/restaurants etc. nothing seems to be a trouble.
~ with 4 other guests we had dinner out with Raymond and Laura at a special restaurant they favour and it was an exceptional night on all accounts.
The house itself is situated in a quite leafy district along with many diplomatic missions. It's a great house, maintained to a very high standard with good decor.
The rooms are a touch on the smallish size but were big enough for our needs. Beds are top class and we slept soundly.
Dupont Circle district where the Embassy Circle is located is only a short metro ride into central DC, and there are numerous excellent cafes, bars and restaurants in easy walking distance.
If we ever get back to DC, we wouldn't consider staying anywhere else.
A 5 star experience and then some!
