Small room, tiny bathroom. Typical of B and Bs in a city. No real feel of a B and B out in the country. Clean, but things like burned out light bulbs here and there. Food was fine, and provided a generous breakfast.

The staff was friendly and helpful. The location felt safe and was on the quiet side of Dupont Circle. The building was charming and the shower had wonderful water pressure... always a plus for an older building. The fact that there is no parking stinks if you need parking. We needed a rental car since we were traveling to other... More

A charming guest house with a neighborhood feel--but still very convenient to Dupont Circle and transit. The house has lots of wood paneling and character. Coming down to breakfast and sitting at the communal table was a delight and gave me a chance to chat with other guests. The reception area is only staffed until 10 or 10:30 PM, but... More

From reservation to check out, American Guest House is now my favorite place to stay on business, and, will be for couples travel as well. Convenient, historic, nice yet efficient rooms, and a staff that really brings it all together makes AGH stand out a leader in hospitality.
