The Cherry Blossom guest room in our beautiful colonial rowhouse Candlemore, ideal for enjoying DC's iconic cherry blossoms in charming, historic Southwest Waterfront on the banks of the Potomac River in the heart of the District

SWDC has it all: restaurants, history, culture, night life, and a quiet place to sleep. Short walk to three Metro stations, Capitol Hill, Nats Park, Smithsonian & the monuments. Convenient to DCA, downtown, and major DC attractions.

The space

See our pictures!! The Cherry Blossom guest room is quaint and cozy featuring a queen bed with a twin trundle bed underneath. There is also space for an airbed, which we can provide. The shared bath room is newly renovated.

Candlemore is almost 50 years old and most of our furnishings are family antique pieces that do show some wear. The effect is sometimes referred to as "shabby chic"

Location Location Location is 15 minute or so walking distance from the National mall. There is a grocery store and Subway stop about 10 Minute walk in the other direction The room was clean and they supplied free water and bathroom supplies.. A McDonalds is closest eating place on way to National Mall You could find a room in a hotel maybe closer but you will pay 5 times as much so price was my thing as I live on a budget The room is about 10 x 10 and you could use the rest of the house for cooking or sitting

The home is located in a residential area not too far from all of the National Monuments and museums, which is why I chose to stay here. I didn't meet the hostess, Sally, although I did receive messages from her. She has a host who takes care of our arrival for her. His name is Arthur and he was helpful and managed all of our questions and for us. The price is reasonable compared to other B&Bs in the area but it is also a very "no frills" stay. There are passcode locks on the rooms, which is a nice feature, if you are concerned about leaving your belongings unattended, and which also keeps you out of places you don't belong in. Our bedroom was located upstairs. It was very simple and looked a bit weathered but the bedding was clean and so were the bath towels. The bathroom is shared down the hall on the second floor but we never encountered a problem with others using it at the same time. The home looks and feels older with creaky floors and older furnishings but over all it was fine. If you are looking for a place to sleep and you don't need anything fancy, then this place will do, but if you are looking for something with nice decor or a private bathroom, then this might not be the best choice. If I return to D.C., I will probably stay someplace a little more updated but I expect that will cost more too.

It was a good location for exploring the mall and its museums. 15min walk. Neighborhood is very quiet with limited dining/services nearby. Surprising quiet. Host made a late night checkin work without any issues.

Clear communication and good check in procedure. Good wifi and good location in Washington. Room and washroom ok, but could improve.
