“Extraordinary”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

We stayed at Embassy Circle Guest House with another couple four nights in Early April. Because of the many positive reviews published here on TripAdvisor, we were expecting a pleasant stay. But "pleasant" is totally inadequate to describe our experience. Faultless, sublime, and incomparable come to mind, though nothing quite captures the unique experience of calling this house our home for a few days. We can start with our spacious, quiet, beautifully-decorated and well-equipped room. Then add the gracious living and dining rooms where we enjoyed lovely breakfasts and afternoon wine gatherings and conversation with Laura, Raymond and friendly, interesting guests. Not to be missed are Betty and Irina, the friendly, personable, knowledgeable and helpful staff. And the serene, quiet, upscale neighborhood makes for a restful place to come home to, while still providing easy, walking access to top-notch restaurants and the Metro. Be sure to ask Laura to prepare her wonderful recipe for scrambled eggs and encourage Raymond to relate his many and interesting stories about the house and his journey in life. We will never visit D,C. without staying here, nor will our friends if we have our way.

Room Tip: Our room was at the front on the second floor. Very private and quiet. Noise was not an issue, eve...

We keep on returning to this beautiful and welcoming B&B! We love the well appointed rooms free of television, the fresh breakfasts with interesting travelers from afar, and the wonderfully personal service. It is everything we want in a travel stay. Thank you, Laura and Raymond, for making it so special. Already looking for the next excuse to return...

Staying at the Embassy Circle Guest House was Spring Break and Beyond! Our room was elegant yet comfortable and Laura and Raymond were the perfect hosts. We especially enjoyed chatting with them as well as the other friendly guests at breakfast and wine/beer hour(s). We are in awe of the property and all that Laura and Raymond must have gone through to renovate and now upkeep such a gem with all of its original beauty. We would highly recommend a visit to Embassy Circle and we cannot wait to return.

My husband and I just returned from a 7 nite stay at the Embassy Guest House and I must say, it was one of the best experiences we have had in a hotel. We travel quite a bit and have stayed in all types of places...this one was perfect in every way. I was initially hesitant to stay at a B&B without a TV for 7 nites as some B&B's are a bit "dusty" with tiny bathrooms, few amenities and often don't really look like the pictures. The Embassy was exactly like the pictures on the website. We stayed in the first floor room in the front to the House. There was never any street noise. The room was large as was the bathroom with plenty of counter space, excellent bath products and linens...bathrobes included! The story of the remodeling of the place is really fun to hear and the innkeepers have truly put their hearts into a fabulous place. We arrived at about 7pm from the airport, rang the bell and were greeted by name by the innkeeper and staff as well as all the guests having wine and snacks in the living room. If you like meeting different people and sharing your days activities and "finds" in DC, this end of the day wind down can't be beat. The Innkeepers make it a point to introduce everyone and they do the same at breakfast. The staff was there for any need and every nite made us dinner reservation for the times we wanted. We were very lucky to have Raymond make his Lebanese appetizers on our last nite for everyone to enjoy. It was so good, we didn't even go out for dinner! Raymond and Laura, the innkeepers were so warm and friendly to everyone that by the second day we were referring to the Embassy House as home. I highly recommend staying and feel sure we will do so again on another visit to DC.

Laura and Raymond are the warmest and friendliest hosts you could hope to have. They create an atmosphere of great congeniality providing delicious food and wine and promoting enjoyable conversation among the guests. The accommodations are as beautiful and elegant as they look on the website. The location is convenient to so many sites in DC and close to very good restaurants. Our stay at the Guest House definitely enhanced our entire DC experince. We can't wait to go back!

We stayed for 2 nights during our recent trip to Washington DC and just loved this place! The rooms were so well appointed with all of the special touches! The location in the heart of the Embassy Row area close to Adams Morgan. The breakfasts were lovely -- fruit salad, breakfast breads, and incredible french toast! We loved sitting around the table in the dining room visiting with the wonderful guests! Everyone seemed to be on a return trip! We will go back to this "Home away from Home" again and again!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are delightful!
