William Penn House is a Quaker (Religious Society of Friends) hospitality and seminar center on Capitol Hill. The House is an historic row house in a residential setting.

We are five blocks from the US Capitol, and within walking distance of the museums and monuments. We have 30 beds in shared accommodations with 5 bathrooms and 7 showers. We provide a simple breakfast. The house is non-smoking and alcohol and drug free. We have quiet hours from 10:00 PM to 8:00 AM.

We often host peace and social justice advocates and like minded visitors to the nation's Capitol. We welcome Friends, families, groups, gays and lesbians and visitors of all ages. However, the house is not handicap accessible.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

People are nice there due to their religious background which, as a Chinese, I do not fully understand. Plus, the location is very near to the Capitol Hill. One can just take a couple of minutes to walk from the hotel to the Capitol Hill. But if you want to have fun in that hotel, don't go there.
