At our Washington DC B&B, we work hard to maintain impeccably clean bedrooms complete with all-white linens for a comfortable and pleasant experience for our guests. For guests trying to avoid allergens or sensitivities, we offer a pet and smoke-free environment and avoid using aromatic candles and sprays. Free Wi-Fi is available for the convenience of busy travelers. We also provide a nutritious and delicious complimentary breakfast every morning. Due to the historic character of our four-story row house built in 1893, our property is not wheelchair accessible. View more accessibility information in our policies.
