Guests love the hospitality at the Woodley Park Guest House

If you agree that one of the greatest benefits of traveling the world is meeting interesting people, you will especially enjoy our charmingly cosmopolitan inns. It is not unusual for us to host guests from many different nations and continents at our DC Bed & Breakfast. Tourists and business travelers, researchers and educators, artists, writers, politicians and political activists gather around the breakfast table daily. The conversation is wide-ranging and spirited, and you may leave the table with a list of exhibitions to see, restaurants to try, books to read, movies to view, classes to take, issues to follow, new contacts to pursue – or new friends and new countries to visit!

“Thank you, Courtney and staff. This is a great B & B! Our room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was delicious; the fresh fruit and pastries were highlights. The location is excellent … close to shops, restaurants, the subway and a beautiful park. Everyone is very friendly and made us feel at home. We will definitely recommend Woodley Park Guest House to our friends.”
Catherine and Robert Campbell – Brisbane, Australia

“Thank you all for allowing me to share in the warmth of your home. My stay was wonderful. I especially enjoyed the conversation at the breakfast table. These types of interactions make one’s stay so un-sterile, as they are in the average hotel.”
Itzak E. Kornfeld – Israel

“We found this to be an excellent location; lovely house, comfortable, clean and with a friendly welcoming atmosphere. Plenty of local knowledge given by owners and staff. Everyone is extremely helpful and kind. The breakfasts are ideal and the round-the-table company is pleasant and interesting. Our hosts were quick to introduce everyone and put them at their ease. Cannot fault our stay. Wonderful! And we really mean it!”
Ann Myles and Patricia Hallett – Enfield, England

“How wonderful to find a place to stay that replaces TV and the isolation of traveling with good conversation, interesting people and a wealth of reading material, not to mention a great breakfast. Woodley Park Guest House is a rare travel treat; a place with friendly people and the comforts that soothe. The absence of TV and radio are a blessing. Having traveled the world in 4- and 5-star hotels, I’ll take WPGH every time.”
Larry Mandel – Jakarta, Indonesia

“I was so thankful to have a home away from home “amidst it all.” Your location could not be any better – close to everything via metro and so much to enjoy right here in the (safe) neighborhood! We so appreciated your laid back, yet professional attitude. We will return.”
Elizabeth & Silvia Weaver – Pretoria, South Africa

“Love the location. Great accommodations and a very warm welcome. This was a wonderful place for my son and me to spend time together before the big move to college! Thank you!”
Marie-Ange Binagwaho – Lancaster, PA

“Charmante maisonnette a l’ambiance joviale, au confort royal et au déjeuner copieuse. Le métro tout proche en rend l’accès aise et la ’18th Street’ les soirées agréables. Bon sejour!”
Nicolas & Savita Bernal. – Paris, France

“This is the second time that I am staying at the Woodley Park Guest House and I enjoyed this time even more than the first time I stayed here. The guest house is located in a great neighborhood, is warm, comfortable, and homely, and the staff here are so helpful and kind. Thank you very much.”
Alina Ng – Jackson, MI

“Hard to put into words. Excellent in all ways. Warm welcome, comfortable rooms and decor. Fresh fruit and croissants for breakfast with good coffee. Interesting guests from everywhere. A great selection of ethnic restaurants in walking distance. Superb location about 200 meters to the subway and close to the museums and mall.”
Colin Harvey … Christchurch, New Zealand

“Coming from India to visit our son, we were a little apprehensive due to the cultural differences. We’ve been made to feel so at home and so welcome here that we’ve fallen in love with the place. Thank you for making our stay so pleasurable and so wonderful.”
Col. Raj and Vanita Sood – India

“What a delightful place! Next to excellent accommodations, the real bonus here is the wonderful “family-style” atmosphere, best reflected by the breakfast “sessions” in the joint living room where you can chat and interact with various guests. Not to be missed.”
Bas Bloem – Nijmegen, Netherlands

“We thank you for the hospitality you have shown us during our stay. The room was very comfortable and homelike – a home away from home in other words. The breakfast table discussions, which seemed like a mini United Nations, were especially stimulating and set the tone of the day. Imagine what the world would be like if all problems were solved in this way! Wonderful location too – close to cafes, shops and Metro. Thank you.”
Geoff & Lena Morgan – Brisbane, Australia

“One of the friendliest, most inviting places I’ve ever stayed in. The staff always had a smile and asked how you were. It was a pleasure to be here. I felt very at ease here and loved everything about this beautiful guest house.
Emma Whysall – London, England

“This was my third stay, and it won’t be my last. The house is gracious, warm and well-appointed, and these hosts are the best. They remember names, encourage exchanges among guests, and are genuinely interested in learning and hearing about others.”
Gail McComie – Fort Lauderdale, FL

“This is a very quaint and cozy place with the friendliest atmosphere we have ever experienced. We will definitely be telling all of our friends about our stay here. Thank you so much for all of your assistance and for making our stay so comfortable.”
Shoukat and Komal Khan – Kingdom of Bahrain

“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The convenience of the Metro stop on the corner, the proximity of restaurants, and the safe neighborhood were such blessings, especially since we were here with my parents who are older and have a little trouble getting around. We appreciated all the little extras everyone on the staff did for us: recommending restaurants, giving directions and making us feel right at home. We would definitely recommend this to anyone planning a trip to DC.”
Ken and Sally Hartman – Jefferson City, MO

“While all of my colleagues were paying three times as much at the convention hotel for noisy rooms with no personality, I was snugly ensconced in a lovely room with cute antiques and friendly hosts, meeting authors, artists and world travelers at breakfast. Bravo!”
Cindy Furse – Salt Lake City, UT

“A truly fine guest house with a great philosophy: welcome everybody in warmth and friendship. This place has a great location across from the splendid, park-like grounds of its neighbor resort hotel and is less than half a block form the Metro. The front porch is a wonderful place to hang out.”
Michael Guravich – Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada

“My wife and I love to stay in small inns and bed and breakfasts. This was a great find and an excellent value in a city. It was clean and nicely furnished. We were welcomed warmly by the owners and staff. The location could not be better either. We will be back!”
Scott and Phoebe McChesney – Pawlet, VT

“Un accueil et une gentillesse comme nous avons rarement vu lors de nos voyages. Si vous cherchez un lieu convivial où dormir a Washington, arrêtez-vous-la. Proche du métro, dans un quartier chic et agréable, les chambres sont d’une qualité irréprochable.”
Emmanuel & Helene Bulckaen – Paris, France

“I immediately felt welcome in the Woodley Park Guesthouse, and I was much more comfortable here than I am in a large chain hotel. The location is very convenient for the Convention Center and downtown DC. The neighborhood is nice and friendly. The rooms are beautifully decorated. The breakfast and the breakfast conversations were great. Overall, you get the feeling that the owners love what they are doing and that really is what makes all the difference. I would definitely stay here again over a large hotel.”
Laura Machesky – Birmingham, England

“I had never stayed at a B&B before, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect. What I found was a warm, inviting, welcoming place that made me feel like I was staying in a friend’s home. Everything was spotless. The food was delicious – especially the fruit salad! And the hospitality – they even sang happy birthday to me! (This trip was my birthday gift to myself.) Every morning and evening, my fellow guests would compare notes on tourist attractions, and I ended up going to a couple of places on their recommendations that I might otherwise have missed. I was traveling alone, but I certainly didn’t feel like I was. Woodley Park was the perfect place for me. Kudos to the owners and the staff for a superb job! I’ll be back!”
Valerie Smith – Jackson, Michigan

“For twenty years I have come to this little corner of the city for annual meetings and had to endure the sterility and impersonal ambience of the “big” hotel. What a joy to find the Woodley Park Guest House! It’s as comfortable as staying at home, but better. Two minutes to my meetings. I have reluctantly told all my colleagues that they are wasting their money and time to stay elsewhere!”
Dr. Jacquelyn Evans – Philadelphia, PA

“This is an amazing place to stay. As a single woman conducting a job search in a new city, it has been an extraordinary place to come back to each day. It is safe, clean, warm and comforting like home. The staff provides many D.C. resources (books, brochures) to facilitate navigating through the city. Every morning there is wonderful coffee and an amazing fruit salad. I feel very fortunate to have found such a place.”
Amy Lowenthal – Fayetteville, Arkansas

“The Guest House is located in an ideal part of town, both convenient and safe, with restaurants, a bank and a drugstore around the corner – and a metro stop on the corner. The house was clean and comfortable; the sheets were soft and did not have that weird “hotel smell.” Although I shared a restroom, there was no competition for the shower and it was always sparkling clean. I would definitely stay here again.”
Linda Alvarado – Houston, Texas

“I look so forward to my trips to Washington DC! The main reason is the Woodley Park Guest House and the wonderful staff. They are warm, receptive, and attentive to your every need. True hospitality! The rooms are incredibly clean and crisp – nothing like I’ve ever seen before. The quiet that pervades the rooms is refreshing. In the hustle and bustle of my life, the Guest House is a peaceful and invigorating haven. I recommend it highly!”
Chad Higbee – Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

“Having found the WPGH by chance online, I was delighted to find that it exceeded my expectations, by far. What a gem! Your location is fabulous; your sparkling new renovation is bright and cheerful; your rooms are tasteful, immaculate and centrally cooled; your rates are most reasonable; your staff is friendly and helpful; and your personal hospitality and lively conversation is genuinely warm. Looking back, I consider my stay with you a blessing, not a chance encounter. I’m telling everyone about you.”
James Riley – New York, NY
