About Cardozo Guest House

Enjoy the comfort and convenience of the Cardozo Guesthouse. We are centrally located just north of Logan Circle, less than 2 blocks from the U. Street/Cardozo Metro (subway) station. (Map this location now) The Metro will take visitors to Washington's new Convention Center in less than 5 minutes (2 stops) or the National Mall in less than 10 minutes (4 stops). Tour the Smithsonian Museums, White House, Jefferson Memorial, Library of Congress, new World War II Memorial while staying in a safe, vibrant neighborhood of Washington.

Our neighborhood is filled with many great restaurants, Starbucks coffee, Results Gym, and hip nightclubs. The U. Street corridor is known for its hot Jazz and cool Blue's. Bohemian Caverns, HR-57 and Twin Jazz are just some of the area Jazz clubs.

Our home is quite different from many typical B&B's, so please be sure the following details fit your needs, and are comfortable for you.

We are ourselves, part-time residents in the home, and therefore, may or may not be present during your stay. Arrival to the home requires access using a lock box, not necessarily a personal greeting. Your only company at the home may be other guests. All guestrooms have secure locks. Again, no breakfast is served, and city regulations do not allow for guests to prepare meals using the home's kitchen (unless your reservation is for the separate apartment, which has a fully equipped kitchen guests are allowed to use).

Check in is available after 2pm (earlier check in may be arranged in advance) and check out is 11am. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer accommodations for children or pets. Our home is non-smoking for the comfort of all our guests.

Our rooms are tastefully decorated with high quality linens, but we do not offer televisions or telephones in each room, or Internet access of any kind. Each room is equipped with a small refrigerator, coffee maker and complimentary coffee, but we do not serve breakfast. These factors allow us to offer quality rooms at very affordable rates. For those guests traveling to Washington with a car, we have 2 off-street parking spaces, which can be reserved for a small Choose from the following room options:
