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.

The Guest House was a very comfortable place to stay. The staff was very helpful responding to our many questions regarding the surrounding area. The breakfast was freshly prepared each morning and all the guests could gather together and meet people from many different places.

Super size comfortable bedroom with classy furniture. Just make sure you don't forget the front door access code (I didn't)! Around half a mile from Dupont Circle Metro Station which is centrally located on the Red Line convenient for most tourist locations.
