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.
Clean, politically incorrect
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
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
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
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.

... at our hotel via the metro (better than NYC!). Our first impression was that it was hot, humid and lots of mosquitos. I became mozzy snack for the majority of the time in DC.
We took it easy on the first day and enjoyed chilling in a café with an iced beverage and then taking advantage of happy hour at a bar that serves 500 types of beer! I had probably the tastiest beer I've ever had, 6.6% ...
In my last blog I mentioned that I was going to see Jayz and Beyonce and staying at a hotel, well bloody hell it was a hotel and so much more! When pulling up alongside mercedes and mustangs in a big blue taxi van, I figured I was in the wrong place, but the driver assured me I wasn't. So I stroll down the long hall way, sweating with my massive backpack on, walking past people in suits and what looked like prom dresses, to arrive at the front desk. They looked just about as surprised to ...
... will remain in the Elementary School to help consolidate their learning. The home bases usually have three adults attached; a teacher, teacher assistant and trainee teacher. Unlike New Zealand, the trainee teachers spend the entire year in one class. This has huge benefits in terms of maintaining a very low child:teacher ratio. The school day is typically spilt up into 6 sessions from 8.30am-3.30pm with just a 45minute break for lunch. After an ...
... the Jefferson memorial across the water of the tidal bay. By this time we were over walked and very cold (the arctic air that made NY so cold was coming down to Washington!) so we walked over to the Smithsonian part of the mall to eat lunch at the American Indian museum! Luke had traditional taco like things and I had a nacho type meal but the best part was dessert! I had a pumpkin hickory cake with caramelised pumpkin and honey cream! Yum!!

... The Egyptian mummy section was pretty interesting, it housed 3 real mummies that had been
recovered from their tombs, they were over 2,500 years old – and they still had their teeth! Following this we headed to the Air and Space Museum, where we spent about an hour or so looking around, without even really scratching the surface. Some of the highlights included Apollo 11, the shells of real nuclear bombs that were built during the cold ...
