We had a wonderful stay at the American Guest House in DC. We travel to DC often for combined business and sightseeing, and we try to stay in unique places. Lucia and her staff are great hosts, the breakfasts were very good and gave us a chance to meet other visitors, the house and rooms are charming, and it's located close to Connecticut Av, DuPont Circle and the Kalorama Road restaurants. We highly recommend.
My colleague and I stayed at AGH for a couple nights. Lucia was a breath of fresh air. She was pleasant and professional. She even offered to carry our bags. Wasn't going to happen! The rooms were clean, quiet, comfortable, gorgeous, and homey. The location was perfect, a short 3 minute walk to our conference. Highly recommend.
It is inconvenient for business trips, with one kitchen serving all rooms for water, tea, coffee and food. Guests are not allowed into the kitchen 9pm-8am these times kept changing throughout our stay, as well as instructions keep changing eveyday, spread out as notes put on tables, doors, rooms and bathrooms, you have to read new instructions everyday. Walls are extremely thin, very uncomfortable.
Stayed on our way out east to visit our son. If you like old, historic homes (which I do) you will love this place. Location is great, nice neighborhood. We parked in parking garage nearby. Host aims to please. Made our visit very enjoyable.
Clean, adorable, historic, lovely host, and wonderful breakfast tailored to our dietary needs. Who could ask for more? We will stay here again when we return to DC. We could walk to nearby attractions, parked close, nice restaurants in the area, short drive to get to The Smithsonian.
We came for a wedding. Had never stayed in the area before. How lucky we were. The house is an old house, with walk up steps. The proprietor sends a code for the front door ahead of time. Our room was small, but very comfortable. We slept really well. The wifi code has the word comfy in it, and it was! High quality soaps and shampoos. Lots of hot water in the shower. Coffee and tee available all day. And an excellent breakfast served in the morning. Eggs, bacon, pancakes, fruit. A good selection of teas (important for a Brit!). The proprietor was full of stories about the history of the property and the area. We loved it!
The American Guest House is a beautifully appointed historical inn, located just Northwest of the DC Mall area in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood. The rooms are furnished in lovely antiques yet offer all the modern day amenities you need. Be sure to save an appetite for the delicious breakfast! You will have more than enough food to sustain you for the entire day.
We really enjoyed our stay here. Our room was comfortable, spotlessly clean and it was fun to be surrounded by antiques and decor with an historic feel. Breakfast each morning was a home made feast. One morning it was a three egg freshly cooked veggie omelet with a side of bacon, fruit, juice, and coffee. Another morning, scrambled eggs and tasty full size banana pancakes. The proprietress Lucia was welcoming and helpful. The guest house is also in a great location in a quiet, really nice neighborhood - a street away from some excellent local restaurants, and within easy walking distance to the monuments and museums. It's also near a metro station (Dupont Circle) which we took to get there from the airport. If you like running (we do), it's also an easy distance to Rock Creek, and a beautiful wooded park with trails. The guest house was a nice place to come home to each evening after our day out. It made us feel like part of the city, not just visitors in it. We highly recommend it!…
Our stay at American Guest house was wonderful! The hotel itself is charming and unique, much cozier than a basic hotel room. The location is wonderful, right in Dupont Circle, close enough to lots of restaurants and parks but secluded enough to be peaceful. Lucia, the inkeeper, is incredibly welcoming and accommodating. She shared with us that with Covid, she is running everything on her own - maid service, cooking, bookings, everything. Even with all of this responsibility, she did not drop the ball once. The breakfast was delicious - healthy and filling. We will be staying there again the next time we are in DC!
What a charming DC house in a beautiful DC street!!! Great location - easy walk to so many amazing unique restaurants n stores on 18th street. A beautiful walk to Dupont circle and Georgetown M street and even to the National mall (about 2.5miles) We were there for a ‘staycation’ due to Covid and really enjoyed our spring break, with the lovely blossoms n streetscapes. The house itself is comfortable, clean and cozy! The rooms are small but enough. Lucia is a wonderful host and made sure everything was in place and well taken care of. The breakfast was a great way to start the day...served in a nice dining room, made with love and presented beautifully. It is a home away from home. I highly recommend supporting this small business.
