Ask a DC Limo Driver: The Top 5 DC B&Bs

Last week, I talked about the top five hotels in Washington, DC. The kinds of places that you always see DC limousines pulling away from because important people are always going and coming. But not everybody’s a “swanky hotels” and “limousines” kind of guest. Sometimes, you want a comfy feel for your trip. That’s where DC’s best B&Bs can serve you. The bed and breakfasts in DC are as welcoming as my mom’s house (but without constant texting about not being late for dinner). Which bed and breakfasts should you stay at? Here are my recommendations. A DC limousine driver’s top 5 B&Bs in our nation’s capital 1 & 2. Woodley Park & Embassy Circle It’s not that I couldn’t make a decision for the top spot. (Drivers of DC limousines can’t be indecisive.) It’s that Woodley and Embassy are run by the same brothers-in-law, Raymond and Joe, who restored them from run-down conditions. Both B&Bs feel like modern suburban homes . . . if we’re talking about an upscale DC suburb where Martha Stewart designed every interior. The rooms are full of natural light, and all the artwork is done by guests who happen to be artists. Hopefully you’ll get the Mascarpone French Toast at breakfast—and don’t skip the coffee! (It’s really good.) Both B&Bs are located downtown, in the middle of attractions and restaurants, and Metro isn’t far. For special outings, DC limousines services can pull right up to the inns. During renovations, Raymond and Joe installed high-efficiency, green appliances at both inns. So if you’re an eco-traveler, Woodley Park and Embassy Circle are great choices. Taft...
