My Washington, DC Experience

5 on June 11, 2014

Great location only a 10 minute walk to Dupont Circle Metro, several restaurants less than 10 minutes walk away, 1 mile from the White House about 2 miles from the National Mall and the Smithsonian Museums & Monument, safe upscale residential neighborhood. We appreciated the free WiFi and 24/7 self serve hot beverage and cookies. Breakfast was absolutely delicious every single morning. The staff was friendly and very helpful. The room was very beautifully decorated...very comfy bed.

Innkeeper Response
I am so glad you enjoyed staying at our Washington DC Inn. Thank you so much for taking time off your busy schedule to write the review, it is greatly appreciated.


Well-kept, clean and friendlt

4.4 on August 21, 2013

Good: such friendly, helpful staff who create a family-like atmosphere, as do the rooms which, while small, are furnished with antiques and are incredibly clean and well-kept. We were offered daily room cleaning, but declined because we didn't need it, and we were clearly told the times for breakfast which was a lovely selection of fruit, a yummy omelette, and other things like muffins and croissants, and juice/coffee/ lots of different teas. Bad: we already knew from TripAdvisor that people had whinged about the creaky stairs (solved by staying on the top floor in room 401) and the smallness of the rooms (we are easy to please and I found it fine and cosy - besides, we weren't there all day).


Feeling at home on a business trip

4.4 on June 15, 2012

On a ten day business trip to DC, I really appreciated staying at the American Guest House. Experienced in standard and boring 4star hotels, I had been looking for something different, more humane and cosy. I definitely wasn't disappointed! The two rooms I stayed in were great, the quality of the equipment and the retro feeling of the furniture - special pieces altogether - invites for relaxing moments after busy work days. And the warmth of the place does not only stem from the wooden floors, walls with frames and the beautiful staircase - the manager, Jonathan, and Joseph, made the difference. Extremely helpful and courteous, and real professionals, they are always up for an interesting chat. Finally, let's mention the rich breakfast: a pleasure to start a day like this! For sure, staying at this guesthouse made a difference in my trip... I can only smile when I think about my colleagues who stayed in one of those dusty and anonymous hotels with hundreds of rooms.... Thank you!


Very nice!

3.8 on April 15, 2012

This was our first time at a B&B so we did not know what to expect. We were caught up looking around at all the beautiful and ornate woodwork. Nice rooms, very clean and comfortable. The innkeepers were all very nice. We really liked the closeness to DuPont circle...just a couple blocks away.

We were on a two week trip that included the Waldorf in NY City and another luxury hotel in Texas. We spent 4 nights at the American Guest House while in Washington. It was clearly our favorite of all the places we stayed. Considering all aspects from room quality, price, staff kindness, and location, I would choose everytime to stay at the American Guest House. The Inn Keeper is an especially helpful person and we enjoyed the interaction with the other guest at breakfast each morning. When I am in DC, this is my first choice.


Wish I had found you sooner!

4.4 on August 29, 2010

I found this when I was in a jam and needed a quick fix. The rates are affordable and very stable compared to other dc places. the staff are very friendly and accomodating. and its a lovely old house with beautiful furnishings. you really do feel like youve gone to stay with a relative. very quiet. and the breakfast is quite a spread and a welcome addition. lively breakfast conversation. very comfortable beds. did i mention how friendly they are? ill recommend this place to my inner circle.


Best part of being in Wasington, DC

4.8 on July 01, 2010

Lucia, Claudio, and Jonathan, The best part of my recent stay in DC was my lodging at the American Guest House. The cordial staff, always pleasant smiles, their willingness to provide us with information, and everything else we needed, made our stay a wonderful four days. Your American Guest House will definitely be recommended by us to family, friends, and co-workers. Jonathan, I want to thank you for your delicious breakfasts that you made for us in the morning. What a great way to begin our work days while there.


Great value

3.8 on April 09, 2010

With breakfast thrown in, this is a superb value for DC. Innkeeper Jonathan was attentive, breakfast was delicious. Drawbacks - not near Metro station; mattress sagged in the middle, making for less than ideal sleep.

Innkeeper Response
DuPont Circle metro station is only 1/2 mile away, no more than a 10 minutes walk or you can take metrobus 42 right in front of the guest house to the metro station and ride it for about 3 minutes. As for the mattress condition, we are very sorry for the inconvenience to our guest and apologize for the discomfort, we were not aware of the problem, checked the mattress and it seemed OK but have replaced it to assure comfort to all our guests.


Lovely Place to Stay

5 on March 12, 2010

The building is lovely and well-kept. Everything was neat and clean and beautiful. The staff was helpful above and beyond the call. From the exceptionally warm and friendly welcome to the beautifully prepared breakfast, the careful attention to my room, and help with arranging my very early cab to the airport, I truly appreciate the diligent service. As a single woman traveling alone, I felt welcome, safe, and respected. I highly recommend American Guest House.


DC Traveller's treasure

4.8 on November 13, 2009

All the positive comments already said about AGH are true. Hospitality, friendliness, cleanliness, willing to help in any way, and breakfast (!!) are far above other locations. Would have stayed longer if rooms were available. Easy to understand why it is so popular and why there are many return customers. Thoroughly enjoyed. Jonathan's breakfasts can't be beat!
