Welcome to The American Guest House

DC in the summer smells like deodorant. And it’s dragon breath hot. So naturally the staff at this Washington DC Bed and Breakfast Inn is working extra hard to stay the polar opposite and make your stay as cool and comfortable as possible. Your next chess match is waiting for you in our parlor and if you stop by after 5 pm on any night you can even refuel with a homemade chocolate-chip cookie. Then, come join us around the breakfast table and try our homemade granola while you meet new people from around the world and swap tourist tips that will mold you into a native Washingtonian by the time you’re done sipping your morning coffee.

What Makes our DC Inn Different?

Finding lodging in Washington DC may not be difficult–there is an array of Washington DC Hotels that will give you a fine place to stay–but this Washington DC Bed and Breakfast gives you more than just a place to stay. We offer you a living space amid a friendly and homey atmosphere that allows you to squeeze the most out of your experience in Washington. As you interact with the melting pot of international travelers brimming from our guest house, you’re bound to make new travel plans with the new friends you’ve made before you’ve even finished your current holiday in DC!

We are here to serve you–be it a dietary restriction that needs to be accommodated (given a week’s notice) or a mattress comfort level that needs adjusting (some like it soft; some like it firm)– we offer a variety of accommodations that include a selection of pillows that help you find that perfect groove for your head and unique breakfast dishes for your taste buds. Our staff is truly knowledgeable about how to serve you and help you experience the most of Washington in the limited amount of time you have–as such, they will be eager to hear your suggestions for dining (and doing) and will be eager to offer some of their own.


Our Bed and Breakfast near the White House is also steps away from the Washington Hilton hotel, Omni Shoreham Hotel, and Wardman Park Marriott. The Walter E. Washington Convention Center is also just 1.5 miles away making our Washington D.C. Bed and Breakfast perfectly situated for all of Washington D.C. business travelers.  Our rates are lower than DC’s Per Diem rates.

Refreshments & Resources 

An assortment of snacks, sodas, and water are available for purchase via our honor system. To make the deals even sweeter than our homemade chocolate chip cookies, we offer complimentary coffee, tea, hot chocolate, and filtered water. Some guests enjoy their morning coffee in our cozy living room–as they watch the hustling capitol hill interns and speed walkers rush past them through the window–others while enjoy watching Chef Kevin flip, fry, and bake away that day’s unique breakfast special. We maintain a very friendly atmosphere around here–and we are proud to offer you the intimate setting of a family-run establishment in a world of big businesses. We don’t have a butler named Alfred or a shoe-shining dog named Philip, but what we do have is just the right ingredients to make us your home away from home.

We set the Bar Higher with Our Breakfast Service

This DC Inn is a big breakfast believer and we believe breakfast has the power to make or break your day. That is why we offer a spread of healthy choices (with some naughty vacation options too). Warm blueberry muffins, chilled yogurt, and homemade cinnamon granola are some of our current favorites. However, because we have our own personal chef, he can work with you to create the perfect balance of a happy and healthy breakfast (or revive one of your favorite childhood breakfast specials) so that you two may be even concoct a new American Guest House favorite! This Bed and Breakfast knows breakfast.
