Meet the Innkeepers

Courtney and Joe Lodico love owning and running the Woodley Park Guest House. Courtney is a third generation native Washingtonian who takes advantage of her hometown and all of its museums, monuments, restaurants, theaters and festivals. A reformed political junkie, she still follows city and national politics as a hobby and enjoys hearing the ideas and opinions of guests from around the world. Joe is a native of Buffalo, New York: he has lived in DC for 32 years and jokes that he is still adjusting to his Washingtonian lifestyle. He thoroughly enjoys hosting breakfast and helping guests navigate the city and the metro system.

Courtney and Joe are the parents of Kate, Thomas, Joseph and Jennifer, their 21-year-old quadruplets - who are all in college at the same time!  They provide constant motivation and incentive to work hard and keep guests returning to our Woodley Park Bed and Breakfast.

Woodley Park - A GREAT neighborhood

Woodley Park is an incredible neighborhood.  It's an upscale urban community - quiet, peaceful, filled with tree-lined streets, beautiful homes and excellent neighborhood restaurants - in the heart of the city!

Our Washington DC bed and breakfast is incredibly convenient to everything you want to see and do in DC.  The Metro (subway) entrance is steps from the front door of our DC B&B. Take Metro to the museums and monuments, or take a walk through our beautiful neighborhood to the National Cathedral or the National Zoo.

Business travelers love our location.  Two very popular convention hotels, the Marriott Wardman Park and the Omni Shoreham, are located across the street and around the corner, respectively.  The Washington Hilton is a lovely 10 minute walk across the beautiful Taft Bridge, and the Convention Center is 6 Metro stops away - 20 minutes door-to-door.

Woodley Park offers you lots of great dining choices - including late night and early morning options.  If you want to venture further afield, a short walk will take you to Dupont Circle or Adams Morgan for outstanding food, interesting shops and live entertainment.

Warm Hospitality & Wonderful Guests
