    Historical Traveler Reviews Woodley Park Guest House Washington DC

    Great find!

    from

    My boyfriend and I went travelling around America for 6 weeks and stayed in dozens of different hotels and this guest house was the best. The guest house is in a lovely area, very close to restraunts/cafes and the underground. Aswell as being reasonable the interior was very tasteful and the breakfast was delicious. We spoke to the owner's every morning and they were very friendly and polite!I recomend staying here.

    Clean, politically incorrect

    from

    Very Clean. Convenient location.

    Breakfast was just average, something homemade & warm would have been nice, rather than store bought muffins,cereal, etc...

    I was a bit upset by the political comments of the male owner of the property. We felt uncomfortable about his overpowering political and religous opinions. These types of conversation are best left to the guests alone, and should not be in print left out for everyone to read.

    We were made to feel like outsiders, rather than guests. When I put a bag down on a table, the female owner scooted over and was blatent about picking it up and moving it to a covered area of the table, as though I had done something bad. I didn't appreciate being treated like a small child.

    The owners could use some direction from the staff, as they were lovely and warm.

    Brilliant B & B

    from

    My wife & I stayed at the Woodley Park Guest House in August 2005 and loved it there. All the rooms (and the house for that matter) have been tastefully decorated. The rooms and house are spotless. We had a room with a private bathroom and although the room was not overly big it was more than adequate.

    The breakfast in the morning was delicious and there was an ample amount - the fruit salad was great. If you want to chat to the other guests you can sit at the main table or if you want some quiet time you can eat your breakfast on the porch.

    The position of the accommodation is fabulous. You are literally no more than 100m from the Woodley Park-Adam Morgan metro stop. Its only 2 or 3 stops to downtown ie. where the attractions etc are. The position is also good because its only a 7-10 min walk to the happening Adams Morgan area with plenty of restaurants and bars etc for evening entertainment.

    Great B&B near the National Zoo

    from

    A very clean, friendly, convenient, and functional B&B...at a fair price vs. the surrounding hotels. The place is very neat and well kept, with a nice balance between "new looking" and "has character". The metro is 100 yards away along with lots of taxis, so transportation is easy. It's about a 30 min (or less) Metro ride from National.

    What a great spot

    from

    I stayed at the guest house from november 19-23/04. I was in Washington attending a conference. This guest house is lovely and very close to all amenities - a block from the metro which is clean, safe and very easy to navigate. The staff were excellent, especially laura, dina, and jeff who patiently answered my endless questions about "where to eat" and "where to go." While I did not attend the morning breakfasts, other guests did and seemed to really enjoy the experience. The only draw back was that my room (which was a liitle small but tastefully decorated and really clean) was on the main floor across from where staff prepare breakfast etc. it was quite noisy at times so if you are a person who like to sleep late or needs quiet, ask for one of the rooms upstairs when making your reservation. Iwould go back in a minute - it felt like home away from home!

    Fine Stay

    from

    Just recently stayed at the Woodley Park GH & had a really good time. Don't understand the previous reviewer as I found the owners & staff both helpful & knowledgable. Each day they took great trouble to make sure everybody was introduced to each other at breakfast to make conversation much easier. The rooms are perfectly ok for the price & the location is right next to a metro station (10 mins to downtown), various restaurants & a nice park.

    Only possible downside was no Tv in the rooms which might upset some people but no problem to me. Overall I would definately stay there again.

    Excited to stay until I met the owner

    from

    I read and researched to find a great place to stay for my week trip to Washington. I was excited about the B&B and especially about the price. The staff I spoke with on the phone was wonderful. When I arrived it was nice, the room was slightly small, but that was okay. This was until we met the owner, we had a friend who was police officer dropping us off, the owner was so incredibly rude to us that I left the B&B in shock, but was still planning on staying. I continued to be so upset, I was instilled with a certain rules of etiquette and politeness growing up in the South, that I made reservations at the Westin and then thoroughly enjoyed my trip. Would not recommend unless you enjoy being demeaned by the owner.

    Lovely Place to Stay

    from

    A truly lovely place to stay. The staff is very friendly. The rooms, although a little small, are charming and incredibly clean. The neighborhood is beautiful with plenty of good places to eat. Only a few things to consider before booking. There are no TVs in the house. They also don't have amenities like blow dryers, robes, etc. And the breakfast, although delicious, mainly consists of danish and cereal. Overall, a nice experience.

    Beautiful House!

    from

    The house and rooms are every bit, if not more beautiful and accommodating than advertised! Everyone was extremely nice and helpful.

    We greatly enjoyed our stay and will definetely go back.

    A Delightful Place to Stay

    from

    Fresh linens on which to rest, light in which to read, food to nourish the body, conversation to tickle the mind, and friendship to fill the heart.In my travels here and abroad I've encountered nothing so serene and delightful as this home & its keepers.May God bless you and keep you, as you have done for others.

    ... originally uncovered in a mine in India almost 400 years ago. The original size was over 112 carats about the size of a golf ball. We saw other gems and rocks in the mineral gallery but none like the Hope. They encouraged us to start a rock collection of our own. Mom already has one in our yard, big ones and tiny ones. Nana also collects rocks. Nana's are more precious than mom's. Nana wears hers.

    So with a happy smile on my face I caught the train to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.

    Well, what a wonder it was. It is housed in a MASSIVE building (and given Washington DC is full of massive buildings, that is saying something!!) - it is over 25 football fields in size and (according to the brochure) holds the largest natural history collection in the ...

They had wifi there so sent some emails from there. Then went to the Library of the Congress. Two years ago it was closed, so was pleased I got to see it this time. Beautiful building, lots of marble, columns, paintings. Next door is the High Court. I only had 10 minutes before it closed, so got ...

    ... the building was impressive it was quite big with huge pillars at the front it definitely made a statement. I was looking forward to this - as I wanted to see the declaration of Independence and the American constitution as I do love that era of American history. It did not disappoint firstly the room was awesome it was at the top of the museum in a dome shaped decorative room. And it was laid out really easily for everyone to get around ...

    ... a special display on the Gershwin Brothers and photographs from the March on Washington.  The interesting thing about the Library is that the original argument used to persuade Congress to appropriate money for books was that congress should have access to as much information as possible when leading the people.  The people can also use the library as long as they get a top security clearance library card...which is free...but it has a photo and it looks way ...
