“A perfect getaway!”
Reviewed 25 October 2012

My husband and I decided rather spontaneously to take this brief getaway to mark a special anniversary. We could not have picked better lodgings for the occasion. The old townhouse had the charm of a bygone era, there was plenty of history around and the location provided instant access to a multitude of activities, from sightseeing to dining, to music, monuments and museums. We even took a trip to the zoo and enjoyed exploring the distinct DC neighborhoods. Throughout, John was always there in case we needed anything or just for a chat. For four days, we gathered around the kitchen table or in the dining room, sharing our experience from trips into town with other guests from around the world, without ever feeling rushed. We hope to come back ourselves soon and highly recommend Meridian Manor to others in the meantime.

Thus B&B really had everything a traveller could want-- clean, spacious rooms (that are even nicer than the pics); great location with many excellent restaurants and bars nearby; congenial but not overly intrusive host; good value; casual but very organized and complete breakfast. The only quirk was the booking site they use-- it is not active from 5pm Friday until 9 am Monday, so when we arrived Saturday after a confirmed reservation made late friday night, there was prolonged confusion and mild disquietude on the host's part because he had no record of our transaction. If they used a better reservation service, it would be A+!

I have stayed at both the Meridian Manor as well as their sister B&B, U Street Bed & Breakfast, many, many times over the past several years. The rooms are diverse, great, cute and quiet. And the host John is always helpful and accommodating. The surrounding neighborhood is amazing with so many restaurants and entertainment options to choose from. Free breakfast plus free wine and beer in the evenings. Very highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed for 5 nights at the Meridian and enjoyed the location, the hosts, and the other guests very much. The space is friendly and welcoming, and the room was clean and accomodating (we stayed in the Chocolate room). The house is quiet and you couldn't hear any other guest activty. Access food, transportation, and grocery/drug stores was convenient. Thank you, John and Yaroslav, for a very pleasant week.

Room Tip: The front of the house was some street noise at night that might bother some. In that case we recom...

What a wonderful room in a fantastic building! All my boyfriend and i kept saying was "wow" about our suite room on the 3rd floor. Beautifully kept and so much space! John was extremely hospitable and accommodating towards us and even met us outside to wave me down and show me where to park after we got lost on the drive through town. He tipped us on some nice spots to eat and drink and got us 10% off a local bar for mentioning the B&B. Tons of great things to do in just a few minutes walk and the bus was easy to catch and took us right in front of the White House in less than 10 minutes! We know where we'll be staying the next time we're in D.C.!

My partner and I stayed in the yellow room which shares a bathroom with the grey room. Because my sister rented the grey room with her husband, we ended up having the fourth floor to ourselves making the space feel like an extension of home. If it were a stranger in the adjoining space, it might feel too close for comfort as the walls are thin.

The space is clean, nothing too flashy or fancy with the furniture; wifi and cable tv are included. Accommodations can be very expensive in Washington so Meridian offers a reasonable rate considering continental breakfast (hard boiled eggs, toast, coffee, pastries, fruit) was included.

The main selling point for me about this BnB was its close proximity to U Street and the awesome restaurants that populate that vibrant neighbourhood. If you are planning to visit Ben's Chili Bowl, it's only three blocks away. It is also a close walk to Dupont Circle and a quick bus ride away from Federal Triangle.

Room Tip: Rent the yellow and grey room if you are travelling as a family. There's stairs involved but is...

I stayed at this BnB for my trip to the international AIDS conference. I made the right decision to stay with John at Meridian Manor. Location is great for getting around on DC transits and Johnis very helpful with suggestions to make things easier and knowledgeable regarding local activites.
After a day, I felt like a local, knowingly way around on the metro, circulatory buses etc. The charming neighborhood is cozy....must visit 18 th street for evening restaurant choices. Te chocolate room is divine and the mattress is perfect.

Room Tip: There is no pool or fitness center....no need either. I recommend the Chocolate room.
