Stayed at Embassy Circle in November to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. Our daughter and grand daughter met us for lunch and we brought them back to the Inn. Laura made them feel so welcome! Our room, wine hour and breakfast were fabulous as always. Perfect Washington Inn! MLH/NEW JERSEY

What a great inn! Laura is fantastic, she can't do enough for you. Breakfast is a lively discussion with the group staying there. When we were there many were from abroad so we had a chance to hear perspectives from those outside the US. A great location, very walkable, tree lined streets and close to the amazing Phillips Collection. The... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Embassy Circle Guest House. Our room was beautiful, spotlessly clean and comfortable. The breakfast each morning was gorgeous and there was a great choice. Laura, Raymond, Hannah, Betty & Angela were always on hand to give help and advice and the location is superb. We will definitely return.

Laura and Raymond were excellent hosts by always being more concerned with our needs than their own. They went out of their way to make sure that our food allergies were taken care of without sacrificing taste. Breakfast was wonderful and we brought home some new food ideas with halumi cheese. Have orders and served to my guest. Room was... More

We can't say enough about this place, it has become our favorite spot to stay in DC -- a luxurious and stately home, beautifully and elegantly furnished, yet the ambience fostered by the innkeepers Laura and Raymond and the first-class staff is warm and welcoming without a hint of stuffiness. Breakfast at the communal table is always a pleasure with... More
