Description

Make your stay in the Nation's Capitol unforgettable at this large, elegantly restored, 19th-century residence right on historic, leafy Logan Circle. This friendly home with stylishly appointed, over-sized guest rooms lies within walking distance of the best Washington has to offer: the National Mall, the White House and other major government buildings, world-class museums, art galleries, theaters, restaurants, upscale nightclubs, the new Convention Center, and the fabulously popular Spy Museum. And, for those traveling to Washington for work, it's right at the edge of the city's main business district. Here, you'll feel entirely at home, in rich surroundings, for less than the cost of a moderately priced hotel.

The Chester A. Arthur House is located on historic Logan Circle, one of city designer Charles Pierre L'Enfant's "special places," eight blocks North and slightly East of the White House. The home offers walking access to the new Washington Convention Center, and easy bus or Metro access to the Smithsonian Museums, White House, Reagan Conference Center, Georgetown University and the National Mall.

The house was built in 1883 for a wealthy Undersecretary of the Treasury in President Arthur's Administration. It was clearly made for entertaining in grand style and has, in fact, been the venue for many National Geographic Society Christmas parties. It's also been a staple of the Logan Circle Victorian Christmas House Tour and has been featured in a Discovery Channel special. Among the home's features are 11-foot ceilings with heavy plaster crown moldings, matched crystal chandeliers, gilded pier mirrors, fortress-thick walls, eight fireplaces and a sweeping, three-story, mahogany paneled staircase. Oil paintings and antiques from the Romanesque Revival, Empire and Eastlake periods grace the generously proportioned rooms. If you visit during the Christmas season, you'll see the home lavishly decorated as the original Victorian owners would have done in their day.

Choose from four individually decorated and spacious guest rooms. Each room is furnished with a comfortable queen-size bed and private en-suite bath. Guest rooms are located on the second and third floors, and are walk up only. All rooms include a hot cooked breakfast served at 8am weekdays and 9am weekends. Wireless Internet is provided throughout the house. Each room also includes TV with cable and a writing desk. Some rooms are able to accommodate extra guests, or two separate beds.
