If you are looking for a comfortable place to stay, Woodley Park Guest House has a good location, comfortable beds, clean bathrooms and good access to the Mariott and the Omni Shoreham. So what makes this place special? Well everyone sits down to breakfast together at one long table. The breakfast conversations were the highlight of my day! The International Actuarial Association was having a meeting so we had actuaries from South Africa, Denmark, Estonia and Jamaica at the table. Everyone swopped stories from plays to see to the orchid show at the Botanical Gardens. Each day you had different people at the table. One day we had a travel agent who was in town to get visas for her group going to the Middle East - very exciting visa story! Courtney even joked one day that we had a keynote speech at breakfast on health care. The breakfast conversation is stimulating and you can just listen if you want which is just as enjoyable as taking part.
The gourmet cookies were another favorite with the guests. It got competitive as guests would compete for their favorite cookies. For the best selection come between 2pm to 3pm but there are always a couple left at 4pm. I recommend the chewy brownies, the chocolate chip and the cranberry oatmeal. There was also one that looked like two waffles stuck together with jam which was so good, I had two! I recommend getting your cookie and a cup of tea and sitting on the verandah perusing the New York Times as a mid afternoon activity before dinner.
If you want company in the afternoon, Noelle has a degree in International Business, she can tell you about her travels to Botswana and Ethiopia or she can share her fish taco recipes with you or where she likes to eat in DC. Kelly is also very friendly.
To walk off the cookies, walk up the escalator at Woodley Park metro, it is about 70 steps up a moving escalator and carry water to drink at the top. Get a 7 day pass for $45 unlimited travel even to the airport. National is a 30 minute trip with one transfer and you can do the trip with a suitcase.
We must thank Courtney and Joe for making all this possible but for me the highlight were the cookies!
