Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • We truly enjoyed our stay in DC at Charlotte's guest suite. It was a lovely inviting room, very private and quiet. The fridg and microwave made it easy to fix a quick meal before setting out for the day. The walk to the local market was quick and convenient as well as the walk to the bus stop. Beautiful , friendly neighborhood.

  • The Best of Washington is a lovely room, a retreat in the middle of busyness. We loved it! The room is as advertised, bathroom adequate and clean and a microwave/frig with plenty of drinks. Charlotte is appropriately available and charming.

    We would recommend this site to anyone coming to Washington DC.

  • Charlotte's suite is indeed fantastic. It is a very comfortable room, with extra sofa and desk. The room is decorated very nicely, and makes a beautiful romantic nest. My wife and I enjoyed very much sitting in the sunny garden having breakfast, watching the busy squirrels preparing for winter. We were very busy finding a new house before relocating to DC in December, and as such, it was THE perfect place to be: central, easy to reach, excellent and affordable restaurants and shops nearby, internet for our research and logistics... Charlotte is a wonderful host, friendly and extremely competent. Her daughters are very nice, too.
    Overall, a place to recommend!

  • Great B&B. Quiet and comfy. Charlotte is attentive and charming. I will not hesitate to stay again on my next visit to DC.

    October 2013
  • Wonderful quiet and private retreat to enjoy at the end of a long day, but still central to lots of activities. Charlotte was a wonderful host. Highly recommend for your stay in the DC area.

  • Charlotte, the host, is an incredibly kind and generous host. She made me feel welcome and a part of the family. She has some amazing stories to share. She even rescued me from a cricket. (Being from the west coast I'd never seen this particular type of cricket before and I was terrified). The neighborhood made me feel incredibly safe. There's a tasty pizza joint nearby and conveniently a CVS and Safeway. The abode is itself was very cozy. Very clean with a great air conditioning system. Charlotte provided a microwave, small refrigerator, coffee maker, plates and silverware. She also stocked the pantry with soda and coffee. When I told Charlotte I needed more hangars she generously provided me with them. The view into the backyard is fantastic. I saw birds and squirrels scampering around. My one and only complaint is that there were tiny little black insects that appeared around July. Overall my stay was excellent with Charlotte making every effort to make my stay more comfortable.

    August 2013
  • Charlotte was the perfect host and our room was delightful. Charlotte was very knowledgeable about the DC area and gave us a wealth of info about how to get the most out of our visit. We checked in with her each day on what we had done and she gave us tips for the next day. Our room was a lovely garden apartment, with a private entrance, that met our needs perfectly. The room is exactly as pictured in the profile. Over our 5-day visit we became very fond of Charlotte and her NW DC neighborhood near Georgetown. The restaurants were superlative and we enjoyed delicious muffins and pastries at the Marvelous Market each day. We had a 30-40 minute bus ride into downtown each day, but really enjoyed the ride and the route through some of the prettiest and most interesting neighborhoods in DC. We would definitely return to 2118 49th St. NW or any of Charlotte's properties! l

  • The BEST of Washington is Charlotte. Thank you so much for having me! Best, Dominik

    March 2013
  • I stayed at Best of DC for two weeks. The room was lovely and just as pictured. The private entrance was nice and the quiet room overlooks a lovely backyard. The room is surrounded by windows and it snowed overnight one day, making for a lovely view right outside my window. Charlotte has plenty of literature on the city and is an excellent reference on DC. She is an attentive and responsive hostess. Location close to grocery store and bus line to city. Parking free and plentiful. Had a great stay!
