It's not a chain hotel with cookie cutter rooms. Built in the year Chester Arthur was inaugurated with the public areas furnished in the style of that period, the upstairs rooms are more modern and bathrooms nice. No elevator so plan on stairs. Breakfast is very nice and served promptly at 8am--great time to visit with fellow travelers about what...

Excellent location, quiet, comfortable, and near many restaurant choices. Warm hospitality and great breakfast. Nice common areas for sitting and relaxing. We got to places around DC easily with Uber, never a long wait.

Great location for all the usual tourist venues plus the P Street and 14th eateries and entertainment. Firm bed, lots of hot water, tasty breakfast. Much fun and relaxation. The owner added much-appreciated details about having grown up in the District and his previous life as a White House correspondent. It added extra dimension to our thoughts about the recent...

Great old house in an excellent location, neighborhood is young and vibrant. You can walk to the museums etc. but it is a bit of a haul. Otherwise Uber. Breakfast each day was excellent. Can be a little noisy on the front side of the building if that bothers you.

My husband and I spent two days in DC and stayed at Chester Arthur. Lovely accommodations and Carl and Eric were great hosts. Our room was nice and large. Nice breakfast. My dad nay recommendation is that it would be nice to have a Keurig coffee maker available for coffee during non breakfast hours. They did have a tea pot...

This was my first experience with a B&B and it was a great beginning! I stayed in the Magnolia room for three nights. I slept better there than any hotel I have ever stayed in. This house was built in 1888, so it has some signs of settling and other age-related symptoms of being a historical home. However, I found...

Chester Arthur House is a special B & B. This was our second stay, 12 months from the first. Too often a second visit can be a disappointment, but that was not the case here. The home's justifiably proud owner, Donald Smith, delights in telling stories about the historic home. This time we even learned of the existence of a...

Beautiful quiet room (Cinnamon Room), fantastic host, most delicous breakfast. We walked most of the time, so it is absolutely central. Unfortunately the mattress was rather hard. The hosts were very charming and we really enjoyed the company of the other guest during breakfast which is at 8am.
