Embassy Row, Washington DC

4.1
Embassy Row is the informal name for the section of Massachusetts Avenue, N.W. between Scott Circle and the North side of the United States Naval Observatory, in which embassies, diplomatic missions, and other diplomatic representations are concentrated. By extension, the name may be used to encompass nearby streets which also host diplomatic buildings.HistoryConsidered Washington's premier residential address in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Massachusetts Avenue became known for its numerous mansions housing the city's social and political elites. The segment between Scott Circle and Sheridan Circle gained the nickname "Millionaires' Row".The Great Depression caused many to sell their homes. The expansive old estates proved well-suited for use as embassies, and also as lodges of social clubs, giving Embassy Row its present name and identity. The relocation to Embassy Row of diplomatic representations, many of which had been established in Meridian Hill in previous decades, was further catalyzed by the construction of the British Embassy, commissioned in 1925 and completed in 1930, and the Japanese Embassy, built in 1931. The greatest number of embassies and chanceries moved to Embassy Row and the neighboring Kalorama neighborhood in the 1940s and early 1950s.

  • Despite the bitter cold we really enjoyed walking along Embassy row taking photos and seeing the many embassies and their flags. If you’re in this section of DC it’s worth a half an hour or more here.  more »
  • I am staying here for three nights. The hotel is nice as is the staff. However, I could not get two wine glasses for the room. I asked at the desk for two wine glasses and the person at the desk very ...  more »
  • This cute bib at the end is a street with the embassies. If you like architecture is more interesting. If not bad memory is the Massachusetts Street. It has a good-sized Park. Very well planned city in Washington that he thought the diplomatic importance and have mostly on a grouped and quiet area of the city.

  • Dr. Hickory was recommended to me by my prosthodontist as DC's premier orthodontist in Invisalign treatment. Following little more than a year, a very successful result! I found Invisalign easy to wear, comfortable, and almost invisible. Dr. Hickory's practice is state-of-the art, and his entire staff, both administrative (front desk) and clinical, are welcoming, knowledgeable, and efficient. Dr. Hickory and his staff have my highest recommendation.
  • If you're looking for an experienced and friendly staff of orthodontics professionals, look no further than Dr. Wayne Hickory's office. I was a first-time patient for orthodontic treatment (invisalign, to be specific) and received tremendous care and consultation over the 1 1/2+ years of my therapy. Dr. Hickory and team always made me feel very cared for, were consistently on top of the progression I was making, and took as much time needed to carefully address any of my questions or concerns with the treatment. I was also very impressed with the team's stellar expertise in the latest advancements of orthodontic treatment. Needless to say, I am thrilled with the end results! Whether you're a first-time patient or a veteran of orthodontic treatment, rest assured that you'll receive the highest quality care from a dynamic and engaging team of professionals!
  • I absolutely love Dr. Hickory and his amazing staff. This was the best selection I've made when selecting on getting Invisalign. I love my retainers so much, Dr. Hickory even told me he could tell that I wear them more than normal! this place is so family oriented and I am quite pleased with everything that they do!
  • Had a 6 month active treatment w/ invisalign 4 years ago or so....when treatment was complete I was expecting an old fashioned wire retainer but to my delight Dr. Hickoty & his staff strongly recommended the Vivera sumscription..4 retainers in 12 months delivered every 3 months...I wore the Vivera full time for 12 weeks then began to wear them every single night since then..I am so happy with my orthodontic result and the lasting beautiful smile that we achieved together...I get many compliments on my smile and @ 45 years old it is quite a compliment...my hygiene appointments go very smoothly because straight teeth are easier to clean & my gum health is spot on...I couldn't be happier w/ the amazing super long lasting smile that I have ThanX to Dr. Hickory & his staff
  • Dr. Hickory is a great Doctor! He does a good job explaining everything and is concerned about doing the best job he can. The whole vibe of the office is very friendly and relaxed.
