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!

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!

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.
