A truly beautiful Guest House with superb rooms and very friendly staff. It is a quiet street but a great location. Excellent breakfast. The hosts, Laura and Raymond are very kind and helpful. At the end of the stay we felt like leaving friends behind. We can full heartedly recommend this wonderful Inn.

The location is centrally located near the heart of Washington, DC. Close to restaurants, Capital Hill, The Smithsonian, Georgetown, and so many other historic venues. Breakfast is always a joy as there is a...

The Embassy Guest House is an ideal location, with excellent hosts and beautiful decor. The breakfast was delicious, the service exceptional and we highly recommend a visit to this Inn. It is easy to walk to great restaurants and especially close ti Georgetown.

Stayed here during a week long trip with my mom and her two friends. I loved every second of my stay in the house. I didn't want to leave on our last morning. Laura, Raymond, Betty are so accommodating - there is no need unmet. Hint - do not miss the evening reception! Have great conversation and make new friends....

Wow! What an excellent surprise to find such a beautiful, convenient, well-maintained B&B in the heart of D.C. I was given a short-notice assignment to D.C. And couldn't find a hotel at an affordable rate, so looked at available B&B options. The Embassy Circle had one available room left, the Khaki Mashkabad room (named after the Persian Rug style in...

Just a few of the many descriptions of this lovely bed and breakfast that owners Raymond and Laura and their talented host have created in this peaceful part of Embassy Row. The inviting email that was sent before our visit told us that we were in for a treat. The hostess welcomed us curb side and directed us to parking...

When my husband and I travel what we will do, see and eat is uppermost in our minds. Going to Washington also includes thinking about where we will stay - the response is the Embassy Circle Guest House. As cited in many reviews the accommodations and breakfast other offerings are excellent. What makes this repeat visit special are the staff...

Stayed with friends for a long weekend in December and had a marvelous time. Very welcoming hosts and fun guests who all got together for breakfast and drinks in the evening. Made for a nice experience -- Rooms very comfy and well appointed. Wonderful location and near the subway and many restaurants. Would come back again.
