This is an excellent value. Jack is a very friendly host, and those who enjoy the B&B format will love this place, as he tries to introduce you to fellow breakfast diners, allowing for much pleasant conversation. Scrambled eggs, sausage, bacon (cooked nice and crispy!), hash browns, toast, and more available for breakfast make this an even better value. If you're there for a conference event at one of the big hotels down the street, it's a 5-10 minute walk. Should know that at least some of the rooms have a shared bathroom. For many that's no problem, but I found that information impossible to determine from the Travelocity listing. Didn't find it a big problem, but often forgot to take my hand towel to the bathroom with me. Room was quite small, probably a little tighter than what I've had in England or Japan, but it was workable (although no room for any good workspace). WiFi was okay, outlets a bit of a problem, but manageable as long as you plan ahead.

Classic Guest house near the metro.

Location: Just off Connecticut Ave near the Zoo. Lots of nice restaurants nearby.
Very friendly management. Jack Shrestha does everything he can to ensure you have a great stay.
