Built speculatively in 1902, this beautiful Washington DC bed & breakfast was originally a grand private home. It has a beautiful entry hall, spacious rooms, high ceilings, ornate decorative plaster and wood moldings, a grand staircase and wonderful landings with pillars, arches and arched niches. During its long history, this elegant B&B in Washington DC has been a private home (approximately 20 years), a vestry for a local church (approximately 20 years), and the Embassy of China/Taiwan (approximately 55 years). When we purchase the house in 2003, it had been abandoned for almost 15 years, and had been open to the elements much of that time. The building was in extremely poor condition and had suffered both extensive water and fire damage. Over a 3 ½ year period, owner Raymond Saba and a team of dedicated craftsmen lovingly restored the house to its former beauty, going to extraordinary lengths to find, replicate and finally re-sculpt and mold some of the original decorative elements.
If you agree that one of the greatest benefits of traveling the world is meeting interesting people, you will especially enjoy the Embassy Circle Guest House. This welcoming Washington DC B & B is a conversation-friendly environment. Conversations are encouraged and they are wide-ranging and spirited. Laura, Raymond and the staff of this delightful bed & breakfast in Washington DC get to know each guest by name and introduce guests to each other so that everyone feels free to participate in the conversation if they wish to do so.

Raymond loves to cook and he has built a wonderful new kitchen in the Guest House. On a completely impromptu basis, he may serve Lebanese mezza, a wonderful desert, or a complete dinner - all at no charge to guests. While impromptu meals are not guaranteed, if you stay for several days you are almost assured of at least one opportunity to gather around the kitchen island or the dining room table and taste something delicious he's been cooking.
