“First Class Experience”
Reviewed 1 October 2013 via mobile

Nearing the end of our four week Canada/USA adventure we have had the pleasure of staying at some fabulous properties. We were therefore pleasantly surprised that our jaded travelling bodies and souls could be further pampered and taken to another, superior level of comfort which is offered by Laura, Raymond and their assistants at the Embassy Circle Guest House.

What an amazing property! Beautiful building, and our allocated room was large and well appointed with king bed and lovely bathroom. The guest lounge and dining room were welcoming in layout and again the decoration was flawless. We enjoyed talking to the hosts and the staff as their commitment to their guest comfort and well being was not only obvious, but genuine. Breakfast and wine/cheese reception were a great opportunity to talk with others and enjoy some extraordinary stories.

Great central location in a lovely neighbourhood, close to shops, transport, dining and attractions.

Laura, Raymond and staff, thank you for the work you do to provide such a lovely property. We loved our stay and will whole heartedly recommend Embassy Circle to family, friends and fellow travellers.

Our first trip to DC and 2nd B&B experience has exceeded our expectations. The amenities were clean, comfortable bed, and the staff made us feel like part of the family. Our stay was for 2 nights and we were sad when we had to leave because we enjoyed sitting around the table after breakfast and in the living room area with the other guests and the owners enjoying each other's company. We have met couples from all over the world in our short stay at this B&B. This is a great place for young married couples who are looking for a nice "couples get away" from the kiddos. Close to metro, fantastic variety of restaurants, and downtown.

We were a bit uncertain about this luxury Guest House upon arrival. It was quite difficult to get our vast quantity of luggage from the car to the basement rooms and then the car had to be moved because of local parking restrictions. We were tired and hungry and we felt a bit lost. We were surprised that our rooms were located in the lower ground floor which had a slightly dark feel to it with partial views to a wall. I had a very bad first night sleep due to the very loud air circulation system - this takes a while to get used to. Things improved when we met Laura who is very friendly and chatty and we met some of the other guests who gave us good restaurant recommendations. The breakfast was very good with a small buffet and nice healthy choices. It was good that we did not have to sit down at a set time. We really appreciated being able to have some clothes washed and dried for a small charge as we were on a long road trip. The house has an immaculate finish and is in a safe area a reasonable walk (in the heat) from Dupont Circle. There is very good wi-fi with separate connections for each floor but there is no TV in the rooms. The showers use a water saving system but this meant that they are much weaker than we are used to. I can see that many people love this guest house and I don't want to be overly critical but am just relaying our personal experience.

My husband and I spent two nights at the Embassy Circle, located in a beautiful tree-lined residential neighborhood near Dupont Circle. Laura and Raymond have done an outstanding job restoring this mansion, and our room (121) was large and immaculate with a comfy king-size bed. Laura and her staff make you feel so welcomed, and Laura enjoys talking to the guests and delighting them with DC stories and historical tales. Breakfast was served around a large dining room table, with guests coming and going. Wine and light snacks were served in the late afternoon. Besides being such a beautiful place to stay, the location is ideal, near a metro stop and fabulous restaurants.

This B&B is located in Embassy Row and was, in fact, a former embassy. Although the embassies have a few employees, this area resembles an upscale, quiet residential neighborhood. You may catch a bus or the subway which are located a few blocks from the B&B. If you are energetic, it is a nice walk to the downtown museums and the White House area.

The B&B is in a thoughtfully restored and nicely furnished building. There is some off-street parking in the basement of the building. A hot breakfast is served in the mornings, and each evening there is a wine and cheese get together. All aspects of the business are well thought out. The warm and inviting innkeepers and their staff are helpful, friendly, and make your stay most enjoyable. We highly recommend this option for your stay in DC.`

Laura and Raymond were very gracious, interesting and pleasant hosts. Laura is a fantastic story teller and Raymond has a life story inspiring to all who hear. We were in Room 121, and it was immaculate, not a smudge, stain or ding in sight. Really enjoyed a low-key, self-serve wine and light snacks at 5pm. Breakfast was very tasty, a step up from other B&B's we 've been to. Metro is within close walking distance, and Old Town Trolley stop is a few blocks away. It was bonus to be located in the middle of most of the embassies. If we go back to DC, we would stay there again.

Room Tip: We chose Room 121 and didn't hear anything or anyone else.

We had a fabulous 3 night stay at the Embassy Circle Guest House in DC. The building itself is amazing, an impeccably restored immaculate mansion with lovely hosts. Laura and Roy are friendly, knowledgeable, interesting and truly focused on ensuring their guests have a memorable experience in the nation's capital. The staff at the inn is great. Breakfast each day was a super jazzed up continental- delicious and healthy (not heavy or greasy), baked goods are available throughout the day and (one of the best bonuses!) evening happy hour- wine, beer and some light munchies. The rooms are large and beautifully appointed with high ceilings, large windows and great bedding. If you have the opportunity to DC, consider staying here- so much better than a traditional hotel stay!

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 111- Red Kashan- it was beautiful, spacious. immaculatly clean and comfortbale but...
