The American Guest House was recommended to us by one of my colleagues, and it lived up to all our expectations. The location is great, the townhouse fascinating, the rooms neat and quite, the breakfast was delicious and the service great. It was great to stay at a place with character (rather than in a bland run of the mill...

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...

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.

My wife and I spent four nights at American Guest House. The experience was entirely positive. The staff was very helpful, the breakfasts excellent (thank you, Kevin & Shannon), the room comfortable and the location great. It is within easy walking distance to the Dupont Circle Metro station and many restaurants. It is a lovely house, but without elevator. The...

I typically stay in chain hotels but decided to give this a try because it was well rated on Trip Advisor. Convenient location just a block or so from DuPont Circle. Staff very friendly and attentive. Room was spotless. I will stay here again!

The "White House" is about 2 kms away Everyday another breakfast. Everyday a friendly and perfect cook. There are no parking spaces. We got suggestions from the landlord. You can park in a hotel car park (e.g. 40 $ per day). The room was clean.

Booked last minute for a conference held at the Washington Hilton. Wasn't sure what to expect, but was happy with my choice. Just 2-3 minute walk to the Hilton, the American Guest House had everything that I required. Fast, free wifi in the room was a bonus. Really enjoyed the wonderful breakfasts by Kevin!

Being a single traveller I was drawn to the more personal guesthouse experience and American Guesthouse delivered all I expected and more. My room was comfortable and had the quietest ceiling fan I have ever had, allowing a nice air flow but nothing to keep me awake.
