American Guest House is a well-appointed 12 bedroom DC bed and breakfast with en-suite bathrooms located in a historic 1893 Venetian Gothic building near the Washington Hilton Hotel. We are located within a 10-minute walk to Dupont Circle Metro, and only a 10 to 15-minute walk from the Wardman Park and Omni Shoreham Hotels, known for hosting conventions. We are located about 1 mile from the White House and the National Zoo and 2 miles from the Smithsonian Museums and Monuments. Our neighborhood is a trendy, upscale, safe and beautiful area in the heart of the city. Within walking distance, you'll find several of Washington DC's best restaurants, as well as Embassy Row, specialty shops, and Rock Creek Park with its beautiful cycling and hiking trails. Culture is plentiful in DC with its majestic theaters, shows, dining options, and beautiful monuments, all only a stone's throw away from our cozy guest house!

Just stayed one night but it was such a pleasant experience instead of being in a bland hotel. Staff all so helpful. Breakfast was very good with eggs and delicious blueberry muffins. Will stay here again

When I attend conferences at Washington Hilton, I've always tried to stay at American Guest House. It provides a warm homey environment (with great breakfasts cooked to your taste) that help me to unwind after a busy day. The host is always helpful and welcoming. This year I wasn't able to snag a room during the days of my conference, but stayed for just one night after the meeting. It was still worth every penny.

Affordable lodgings with somewhat small rooms but this is what is advertised. Very friendly and helpful staff and excellent breakfast. 10 min. walk to Dupont Circle Metro Sta. I've stayed here several times and always feel welcomed.
