A little about my wife and I. I am 28, she is 24, avid travelers, no children, open to just about anything. We stayed at the American Guesthouse March 9-15th. It was our first trip to D.C and we tend to lean towards B&B's. With that being said, I highly recommend staying here.
Room: The room was absoulutely beautiful and clean. We stayed in the basement room and it was nice and we had lot's of space. Our room was cleaned daily and it was nice to come back to such a nice place. The water pressure in the shower was wonderful and we felt right at home slepping there.
Location: The B&B is located right between the perfect mix of restaurants and clubs. It is quiet and far enough away from the main drags but yet close enough to walk to grab some chow or catch the metro. Safe neighborhood too. Many a nights my wife and I walked to the local 7-11 or some food spots and walked back. No problems, no one bothered us.
The owners: They are very hard working, nice, caring people that try and make your stay the most pleasant as can be. I really appreciated all the advice and questions answered. Thank you very much!
The only advice I have to offer is, be aware that although the basement room is nice and large, you do still hear some noise. Especially in the morning. Not a problem for us because we read about it on their website and we again told about it when we checked it. The owners are very nice and sincere people who work hard at making this place run. They get up around 6am and start the breakfast routine so if you wake up from "foot" noise, or have never lived below someone, you may want to bring some earplugs. But like I said, not a problem for us because we were vacationing and came in late at night and slept soundly. Other than that, this place is great!
