Perfectly delightful, perfectly relaxing

I stayed at Meridian Manor in the third-floor master suite for a week while attending a conference nearby, at which I was scheduled to speak. I arrived fairly frazzled, since my presentation was not quite ready to go, and I cannot speak highly enough about the wonderful effect this B&B had on my stress levels. My room was comfortable and welcoming, with plenty of power outlets and lots of room to pace and think about my talk. It's homey in that wonderful DC-rowhouse way (love the original art and the fascinating front parlor!). I was happy there as a business traveler and I think I would be equally happy had my trip been more leisurely. Next time, I hope!

Me parecio muy linda y confortable la casa. con buen mobiliario y muy buena limpieza y cuidado. John es un genio, super amable y considerado. Yo estuve el año pasado. La zona es muy linda (cerca de dupont) y con posibilidades de transporte para buenos lugares historicos y turisticos de las ciudad. Muy recomendable

Cute little garden apartment, cozy, comfy and very convenient!

I was in town to attend a conference at the Washington Hilton hotel. Rates at the hotel were almost double of what I paid at the Meridian Manor! I was only a 10 minute walk to the hotel and close to so many other shops and restaurants. Including "Yes" a great organic market just a few blocks away. As my plane landed I received a call from one of the owners John and he was ready to meet me to welcome and show me around. He explained the unit very clearly and was kind enough to point out some great eateries in the area. The garden unit was a very good size and I had my own kitchenette and living room. I was able to make simple meals to stay healthy and not have to eat out all of the time. An additional cost savings! The neighborhood is extremely safe and friendly. I would most certainly stay at the manor again the next time I'm in D.C. I recommend it! Had I known I would have had that much space I could have easily shared the space with a friend, an additional cost savings!

Great hospitality and location. Room was so comfortable and quiet, I slept in every morning! John was very helpful and a fantastic host.

Lovely Location

The owner, John, was exceedingly friendly and hospitable. He carried luggage and hailed a cab when needed. The continental breakfast was excellent with a variety of choices. The cinnamon bread was a favorite. The accommodations were average - no frills. I do wish the pillows had been of a softer variety. The locations is within walking distance to a wonderful array of restaurants, shops and sightseeing. Bus stops are also close by. All in all, we had a pleasant stay in DC.

Good location

The double bed in the bedroom is comfortable. However, the sofa bed in the living room needs upgrade. The vent for AC/heating in the living room made a lot of noise.

Friendly B&B

Great B&B near U street eateries- Busboys and Poets and Eatinville. Easy to get everywhere. John the owner snd other guests friendly. Nice big room and very comfy bed. Enjoyed our stay

English basement apartment needs TLC

2.4 on March 24, 2013

The apartment is basic and furnished with pieces you might expect in a college student's apartment. The apartment is clean, but the owners need to complete their work on this space. The bathroom has unfinished green board on the ceiling. The baseboards look grimy because they need painting. The door to the bedroom is new, but unfinished, with the plastic film from home depot still on the glass. The bed part of the sofa bed is broken, so the owner brought in a cot. The listing included a TV in the bedroom, but the bedroom TV was broken in the closet. The shower head dribbled water. While we didn't expect a Ritz Carlton, we did expect the apartment to be finished and well maintained.

Nice Spot!

Nice location (check out Meridian Park ) and a great value. John is a great host, breakfast spread is lovely & healthy, and great rate.

Spring Break 2012

The Meridian Manor was a marvelous B&B. From the easy process to book the inn and pay for it, to the location to the easy-going, accommodating innkeepers, it was absolutely perfect. We'll be back!
