“DC Gem”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

Just home after 3 nights at the WPGH. Love, love, love! I was attending a conference at the Marriott and enjoyed being able to escape the frenzy for the calm of the B&B. I was so impressed with Courtney and the staff and their efforts to make everyone feel welcome. They made you feel as if they'd known you forever. Guests are called by name and Courtney never fails to introduce guests to one another at every opportunity. Morning conversations over breakfast were so engaging, ranging from the importance of libraries to the academy, to the merits of local restaurants, to the state of the nation, and the must-see spots in DC. These folks have the right formula for success and I look forward to a return trip!

The Woodley Park Guest House is ideally located in one of the better areas of DC. Access to all the major attractions of DC is very easy via the Metro which is just across the road. The rooms are quiet and comfortable and very tastefully presented. An excellent continental breakfast was provided at a communal breakfast table giving the opportunity to engage with other guests. Host Courtney and the staff went out of their way to be helpful. In all, a very pleasant experience at a very reasonable price in a nice part of Washington DC.

This property is splendidly located, just a couple of metro stops from everything you could want to see in DC. It's clean and friendly, and Courtney and her terrific staff go to great lengths to ensure you feel like you've just arrived at home. Best are the breakfasts, where you'll meet (be introduced) to folk from all over the globe and share the best conversations. There are myriad restaurants just around the corner - seeing the President's motorcade go by was a highlight for this Aussie - and the metro is literally seconds away. Would I come back? Heck, I didn't want to leave!

We chose this as a base for our four day visit to Washington DC due to its convenient location close to the Metro plus the quality reviews from previous guests. We were not disappointed.

The Metro couldn't be better situated, just a half block to the elevator entrance, a little further for the escalator. The neighborhood was safe, with a good selection of restaurants nearby. And both the trolley and open top tour buses have a pick up stop just a block away, so an option to start your sightseeing day.

Our bedroom was on the smaller side, as was the bathroom, but spending the whole day checking out the sights, it wasn't of particular importance. Housekeeping was of a very good standard.

Breakfast, available after 7-30am, was average fare and served as a communal gathering for all of the guests to interact, spurred on by the effervescent owner, Courtney. Possibly not for the shy, retiring type who may prefer to time their morning meal until after the crowd have departed.

Friendly staff, pay parking available, handy for everything, so in conclusion, a lovely guest house in a decent area of DC.

I spent four nights at this B&B Great location ...1/2 block from Metro Station (Woodley Park -Zoo) and near plenty of places to eat. Best of all was that it was right across the street from the hotel where my conference was located. Couldn't ask for anything better. I Had not spent time in this area of D.C. before and liked it's location - away from the tourist areas. Inn was clean, bright, and comfortable. Staff was excellent!!! Everyone who worked there was a professional. One of the owners had breakfast with guests one morning and that was so nice and welcoming. Had single room with shared bath. Room and bath were very, very clean. Bed was comfortable. No problem with sharing the bath, which I heard is usually a problem for Americans. Most houses converted to B&B's have small rooms so the size didn't bother me. Staff helped with finding places to eat, printing boarding passes, and overall making my stay in D.C. seamless and pleasant.

In closing, I would stay here again and have already recommended to co-workers and friends.
