PARKING - GENERAL
Dupont Circle is located in the heart of downtown Washington, DC. It is an extremely popular neighborhood, and parking is restricted.
You may choose to self-park in the neighborhood, or you can turn your car over to us to park. If you choose to self-park, you will need to pay very close attention to the posted signs and be prepared to move your car from time to time. Parking enforcement is strict in DC and you may receive a parking ticket. If that sounds like a small price to pay for the freedom to use your car whenever you want, then you definitely fit the self-parking profile. If that sounds like an expensive hassle to you, we will be glad to park your car for you.
If you want us to park your car, please be aware that PARKING RESERVATIONS MUST BE MADE IN ADVANCE.
PARKING ON WEEKDAYS: 9 AM Monday to 6:30 PM Friday
On weekdays, most of the parking spaces in our neighborhood are reserved for cars with diplomatic license plates. That makes daytime parking very difficult.
During the week, we will park your car for an additional charge, subject to the following restrictions:
- We are not able to offer in-and-out (valet) parking. We will park your car when you arrive and bring it to you when you leave.
- We cannot accommodate oversized vehicles.
- We cannot accommodate vehicles with standard transmission.
PARKING ON WEEKENDS: 6:30 PM Friday - 9 AM Monday
Parking is much easier in our neighborhood on the weekends. Both diplomatic and neighborhood parking spaces become available for general use on Friday evening after 6:30 PM until 7 AM (diplomatic spaces) or 9 AM (neighborhood spaces) Monday morning. If you are coming to DC over the weekend, you can self-park and use your car whenever you like. We'll show you the spaces that are available and tell you if and when you have to move your car. If you prefer to turn the car over to us and forget about it for the weekend, we'll park it for you for an additional charge.
A two-night minimum stay is required. A one-night reservation MAY be possible depending on our availability. Please call to inquire.
Reservations must be guaranteed with a major credit card. We accept VISA, MasterCard and American Express. Cash and Traveler’s Checks are also accepted forms of payment.
A booking fee of $35 is charged at the time you make your reservation. This amount will be credited to your invoice on arrival. In case of cancellation, this amount is non-refundable.
Notification of cancellation is required five (5) days prior to your scheduled day of arrival. Cancellation of your entire reservation or any part of your reservation after that date will result in a charge to your credit card for all the nights you cancel. If we are able to re-book your room, we will issue a refund on your credit card for the nights we are able to re-book. All cancellations will incur a $35 non-refundable booking fee.
There are many reasons a traveler might need to cancel a reservation at the last minute, including illness, family emergencies, flight changes and extreme weather. As you are responsible for the full amount of your reservation once your cancellation date has passed, we strongly recommend that you purchase travel insurance to cover the financial risk associated with a late cancellation.
Front Desk Hours
The Front Desk is open from 8 AM to 8 PM. The Front Desk closes at 2 PM on all major holidays.
Check-In and Early Arrival
You are welcome to arrive at the Guest House any time between the hours of 8 AM and 8 PM. Your room is guaranteed to be ready for occupancy by 3 PM. If you are arriving earlier than 3 PM and your room is not ready, you are welcome to leave your luggage with us, refresh yourself, get maps and directions to the sites, and get started on your holiday or business trip. If your room is ready early, you are welcome to settle in and make yourself at home. If you will be arriving before 9:30 AM, please plan to join us for breakfast, our treat!
If your travel arrangements do not allow you to check in before 8 PM when our Front Desk closes for the evening, please call or email us to receive our Late Check-In instructions.
We ask you to vacate your room by 11 AM so that our housekeeping staff has plenty of time to get the room ready for the next guests. We’re not in a hurry to see you go, however! You are welcome to use the house all day. Leave your luggage with us and go out and see more sites. Relax in our comfortable common areas: have coffee or tea, read the paper, work on your computer, or join us for evening wine before a late night flight.
The Embassy Circle Guest House is a smoke-free accommodation. Smoking anywhere in the house will result in a penalty equal to two (2) night’s room rental.
Your room rate includes a delicious buffet breakfast. The breakfast buffet features a hot entree each day (fritatta, french toast, waffles, omelet, quiche, etc), as well as freshly cut fruit salad, organic honey yogurt, organic hard-boiled eggs, coffee cakes, organic breads for toasting, jams and jellies, hot and cold cereals, a selection of cheeses, smoked salmon and creamed cheese, coffee, an assortment of teas and orange juice.
