Woodley Park Guest House
Ranked #4 of 35 Washington DC B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 March 2009

When we travel, we prefer to stay in a place with character where we feel as if we are coming back home after a long day. The Woodley Park Guest House was exactly that.
The location is great; the Metro is at the corner and it is a quick ride to all the sights.
(Have someone at the desk explain the Smart ride cards as it makes navigating the subway system easier.)
The rooms are lovely. The beds were extremely comfortable with high quality sheets.
Breakfasts in the morning were a real treat not just for the food but the company of the other guests. Over fresh fruit, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, pastries and good coffee we met people from all over the world. We ended up in animated conversations about travel and exchanged lots of good information.
WiFi was an added bonus. No TV in room was not a problem and added to the quiet atmosphere.
Everyone working at the guest house was very helpful (their neighbourhood restaurant recommendations were spot-on), efficient and you ended up feeling as if you had made new friends.

We stayed at the Woodley Park Guest House because the Wardeman Park Hotel was sold out and I'm glad we did. The Guest house is directly across the street from the Wardeman Park and is a great place to stay. In many ways it's MORE convenient than the big hotel because there are no long corridors or elevators to wait on. The Guest House is clean and safe and the staff is great. We'll stay there every time we go to Washington.

Everything you'd want in a beautiful B&B -- charm and elegance, great location, shady street, bright, comfortable rooms, very hospitable staff and breakfast room, a perfect launching place for DC activities.

Just completed another business trip to DC and once again had a delightful experience staying at the WPGH. The owners and their employees are incredibly welcoming, helpful and will go out of their way to attend to your every need. One of the reasons I keep returning is that I love the fabulous breakfast conversations with the diverse, informed, and interesting guests that are drawn to this B&B. Never fails that I learn something new about another part of the world, a cutting edge technology, a profession, or gain a tip on something that I can apply to my own life. I love hearing reports on cultural events, exhibits and other Washington happenings from guests. This place offers more than a home away from home; it offers opportunities to expand my horizons and make new business contacts and friends. Maybe that is why I frequently see other returning guests! Whether you are coming to DC for business or leisure, a stay at the Woodley Park Guest House will enhance your experience.

This is a great place to stay. The rooms are comfortable, beds firm, everything tastefully decorated. Free internet service in the rooms, some rooms have wireless. Breakfast is plentiful, not exotic but tasty. Location couldn't be more convenient - literally 50 yards from the Metro Woodley Park red line subway stop. And Courtney and her staff are pleasant and welcoming, very accommodating. I get to DC once or twice a quarter on business and always stay here. Have never had a bad experience in more than a dozen trips.

Nice surprises are in store for you at the Woodley Park Guest House. Still as immaculate and well-run as a German or Swiss hotel, the guest house’s lower level was reconfigured and completely renovated in December 2008 and January 2009. There are now just three large rooms on this level, each with a private bath. Interesting features on this level include a dramatic ebony-colored oak bedstead in room 107, a wonderful brass bedstead in room 106, upholstered chairs for reading or conversation in the rooms, good-sized closets, throws to wrap yourself up in (they are in all rooms of the guest house now), and extra-deep granite-topped vanities and large stall showers and European fixtures in each bathroom.

What is no surprise for the return visitor (I return frequently)—but what will be a unique experience for the new guest—is the welcome and warmth you will find in the guest house. You will feel very quickly that the guest house is your house and that you are a part of a community where you can have both company and privacy. One of the owner/managers—Courtney, Raymond, or Laura—always hosts breakfast and introduces each guest to everyone else as he or she enters the breakfast room. You are treated with respect and as a friend. Whether you’re the new congresswoman in town, in your twenties exploring Washington, a researcher attending a conference at the National Institute of Health, or parents attending your child’s graduation at one of the local universities, you’ll find, that, somehow, the owners create an environment in which you will be comfortable and appreciated

I am a frequent business traveler and, enjoying the more personal milieu of a Bread & Breakfast to that of hotels, have sought out B & Bs in many American and European cities. Seldom have I come across an establishment that exceeds the friendship and comfort provided by the hosts of the Woodley Park Guest House. Why do I return there time after time? Woodley Park provides all the basic needs. There are the creature comforts and support. The B & B is spotlessly clean; a friendly staff attends to all ones needs and graciously responds to one’s naïve questions. With Washington’s Metro system on the adjacent corner the whole city is readily and affordably accessible, and the choice of rooms allows a spectrum to match a wide range of budgets. What is special is the clientele. On each visit I have met a new cross section of the professional and vacationing world. Where can you meet people from across the globe, and other professionals such as convention going endocrinologists, mathematicians, neonatal specialists, lawyers, architects, educators, and writers? Conversations at breakfast, mediated by our host, Courtney Lodico, allow one to vicariously learn about the diverse world around us. The language and accents are new. New words and insights abound. One learns from a microcosm of our complex global community. Few situations in our modern technological world provide such opportunities for rich conversation.
