Several friends with a convention at the neighboring Hilton also stayed here for 3 days. The location is excellent and an easy walk to the hotel. The bedrooms are clean and well kept. The neighborhood felt very safe even later at night. The hot gourmet breakfast was delightful with sides of granola, and fruit. A must stay at least once... More

Very clean and had everything you could want or need for your stay including a small refrigerator in the room. The breakfasts were delicious and very plentiful. The staff could... More

This was my first trip to DC on business. I didn't want the usual hotel room, so selected American Guest House--so glad I did! From the initial email contact, to the final farewell always polite and eager to please. I follow a gluten-free diet and asked to have it early as I had to leave before breakfast to get to... More

Good location metro station with many restaurants within walking distance. Old style house with a cozy feeling. Room little small but quite comfortable and enough for one person. Excellent breakfast with chef Kevin.

This is our second visit to this hotel convenient to DuPont Circle. The staff is terrific, even better than the first time we stayed there. We particularly liked their flexibility. It is small and we arrived at an inconvenient time, but they accommodated us. We had to leave very early for the airport, well before the scheduled breakfast, but they... More

We stayed 5 nights at the American Guest House when I accompanied my husband on a business trip last month. This is a charming and beautiful old building that was built in 1899. The accommodations are well maintained and very comfortable. We were on the top floor in room 403, which is spacious with a sitting area and antique furniture... More

Close to everything we needed, only a short stroll to the DuPont circle centre. The room was homely and clean, and the guesthouse was decorated with interesting Americana. Breakfast was included and delicious. Staff were friendly and the free wifi was a bonus. Would definitely return.
