Als Morgenspaziergang sind wir mal "gschwind" vom Hotel zum National Air and Space Museum gelaufen(das schaut auf der Karte immer so kurz aus...hat dann aber doch 'ne Stunde gedauert). Hier sind neben einigen Flugzeugen aus den verschiedenen Epochen auch einige Apollo-Raumkapseln nebst dem täglichen Astronautenbedarf ausgestellt. Das war schon …
Heading south, the delights of public transport... With just enough time before the train to grab some lunch, I exercised both my best UK and then American accents as "coffee please" and then "can I get a regular quwoffffee to go?" were greeted with blank looks at the till. The man on the other till apologetically explained the lady spoke only …
... surviving members of the King family, give speeches about the legacy of black civil rights. It was drizzling and badly organised and we queued (in the American sense, and with nothing near the despondent efficiency of the English) for ages, but I heard three presidents past and present take the podium and it was totally worth it. I was proud to be British for a second time when, that evening, we went to Arlington's military twilight tattoo. The marine drill team ...
... presumably for security and privacy). It is phenomenally hot outside, getting over 100 degrees Fahrenheit over the course of the day. We have a couple of hours to kill before it is time for the National Archives and we can't stand being outside so we nip into the nearby national art gallery. I have been a bit disappointed with the art galleries in America. I love local art but most of the American collections don't seem to have American art ...
... statues and really cool rock wall/fountains. In keeping with FDR's struggle with polio, the entire park is accessible, and it even has Braille at everything. Very very cool.
I wanted to make this it's own entry because I have so many pics!

Historical Traveler Reviews Woodley Park Guest House Washington DC
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.
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.
Great B&B near the National Zoo
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.
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!
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
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
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.
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
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.
