Welcome to our Washington DC Bed and Breakfast

It’s official, Fall is here, and the American Guest House staff couldn’t be happier about it. This means it’s time to turn on the oven and start our Washington DC bed and breakfast fall favorites. Butter rum coffee cake, pumpkin spice pancakes, we’ve got the wow-factor any traveler wants. And to compliment our breakfasts: our exceptional service, lemon fresh linens, a sea of polished hardwood, and historical flair, we are anything but your average accommodation.

Why our Bed and Breakfast in DC?

Just like a lot of our recipes, the American Guest House has a secret ingredient that makes us even more delicious…Chef Kevin! Read his praise on TripAdvisor, Chef Kevin is mixing up breakfast the right way. As the weather turns cooler, it’s anything but cool inside his kitchen. The spatula is his magic wand of creation. Every morning while you’re sleeping in one of our 12 beautifully decorated bedrooms, bacon is frying in the pan, cinnamon muffins are baking in the oven, an eggy quiche, with flakey crust, is sliced into triangles, orange juice and milk are placed on the table, Brazilian coffee is brewed, and the dance continues until you’re ready to take a bite of morning paradise.

Our easy check-ins affirm that from the moment you arrive, we treat you not just as guest, but our friends. There is nothing more delightful than seeing the smile of a return guest at our Washington DC B&B.

We offer complimentary features for your comfort. Print your boarding pass or theater tickets on our guest computer. Watch TV in the living room and relax with a glass of red wine. Help yourself to our travel pamphlets. Or perhaps you fancy a meal out on the town? Not a problem as our innkeepers, Meg and Hannah, are seasoned residents of DC and know all the dining restaurants. And if the little necessities of travel are required–taxis, maps, directions, webpage information–please be assured our innkeeping ladies are at your service all hours of the day.

Location of our DC Bed and Breakfast

Located in the centralized and high class Northwest D.C. neighborhood, our Washington DC Bed and Breakfast is sandwiched between Dupont Circle, Adams Morgan, and Downtown DC.  With the Dupont Metro stop only a 10 minute walk away, you can get anywhere in a jiffy. But not only that, we are close to all the Smithsonians, local pubs, grocery stores, waterfront, parks, and much more. Please inquire with our innkeepers on approximate location and transit times.

A slice of American History

It all started in 1898. Originally built to house the Counsellor of the French embassy, Count Peretti della Rocca. American Guest House’s architecture was meticulously composed by Arthur Cowsill, the very same general contractor of Union Station. And as years wrapped around years like our beautiful staircase, this lovely building has been owned by few but loved by many. And when the current owners purchased this Washington DC vacation accommodation in 2002, it’s become the modern antique palace of all bed and breakfasts. As they renovated each floor, it started to be restored to its old glory days. Don’t believe us? Just take a tour through the front door and see how the triangle glass windows speak to you. It’s houses like this that are hard to find, indeed.
