Historic Boutique B&B in the Heart of Dupont Circle
One of DC’s trendiest neighborhoods, Dupont Circle is stuffed to the gills with eclectic bars, vibrant art galleries, neon nightclubs, and stylish cafes. In the thick of it all, just two blocks from the Dupont Circle Metro station, stands the Ivy Mansion B&B at Dupont Circle, a historic building that’s been converted into a four-suite bed and breakfast.
The spacious Joyice Ann room, named after the innkeeper’s mother, occupies the entire third floor. It features a sitting area and a luxurious en suite bath with a walk-in shower. On the second floor, 100-year-old pine floors complement the Ella Jo room's newly renovated, contemporary bath. And the Annie Bell room exudes elegance, thanks to golden bedding on a TempurPedic bed, an antique chandelier, and a decorative fireplace. Each suite has a private bathroom.
Located on the garden level, the B&B garden apartment sleeps up to six. Exposed brick walls, eight-foot ceilings, a private entrance, and a patio contribute to the unit’s sophisticated yet homey feel.
Dupont Circle, Washington DC: Historic Charm and Dynamic Nightlife
In Dupont Circle, located about 2 miles north of downtown, foreign embassies housed in historic mansions neighbor hole-in-the-wall bars and boutiques. During the day, crowds gather in Dupont Circle's park to watch chess players hustle on permanent stone-table boards. Here, you can catch a glimpse of the neighborhood’s elaborate centerpiece—the two-tiered, white-marble Dupont Circle Fountain. At night, check out the bars along Connecticut Avenue, which range from Latin lounges to beer pubs and high-end clubs.
Two blocks from the fountain, The Phillips Collection showcases paintings and priceless macaroni necklaces by Renoir, Van Gogh, and O'Keeffe. A quick ride on the Metro will drop you off at the National Mall, a tree-lined open space that stretches more than 2 miles, from the US Capitol Building, past the Smithsonian museums to the Lincoln Memorial.
