  • Summary

    D.C.'s Choice for Comfort and Convenience

    As one of Washington D.C.'s youngest bed and breakfasts, Meridian Manor offers the convenience and comfort of a modern restoration gift wrapped in a classic 1890's red brick Row House.

    The inn consists of six tastefully appointed, good sized guest rooms and one fully furnished apartment. All of the guest rooms include a queen sized bed, wireless internet access, and a television with cable. Four of the rooms have a 32 inch LCD cable television. Three of those rooms have a private bath, decorative fireplace, and accommodations for up to four people. Two more rooms share a hall bath and a common sitting room.

    Each morning, from 8:00AM to 9:30AM on weekdays and from 8:30AM to 9:30AM on the weekends, guests are invited to dine on an expanded continental plus breakfast. Breakfast is served in your choice of either the kitchen or the front dining room and parlor, and often includes cereal, pastries, fruit and yogurt along with coffee, tea, and juice.

    Meridian Manor rests north of Dupont Circle, just a block away from its namesake, Meridian Hill Park, and only four metro stops away from the National Mall, the Smithsonian Museums and historical monuments. Guests are often surprised by how much there is to do for free in Washington D.C.

Meridian Manor offers visitors, here for business or sightseeing, easy access to much that Washington has to offer.

    Business travelers will find the Washington Hilton towers a 10-minute walk to the west, and the new Washington Convention Center is an 8-minute walk to the U. Street/Cardozo metro station and then a 2-station stop to the heart of the Convention Center.
