The American Guest House, a Washington DC Bed and Breakfast was born in DC in 2003 to Innkeepers Lucia and Claudio Rosan; a Brazilian couple residing in the Washington DC Metropolitan area for about 40 years.  The house itself was built around 1892 for a senator we were told, and later purchased by a German family (mother and son). After its original use as a senator’s home, the Patrician roll house has been continuously used as some type of public housing facility since around 1918. Prior to being turned into a bed and breakfast in 2004, the property had been used as a rundown hostel by Mr. Byrd, the previous German owner for at least 40 years prior to the Rosan’s purchasing and renovating it into the historical and elegant DC bed and breakfast in existence today.

Eleven years later, we are still here taking care of travelers from all over the world. We greatly enjoy meeting our guests and welcome people regardless of creed, color, ethnicity, beliefs, religion, sexual preferences and dietary restrictions.

That being said, breakfast is everyone’s favorite time at the American Guest House, it is cherished by all, this is when guests get into very interesting and lively conversations, when friendships are made, romances are born, when business cards are exchanged, when people from different worlds and customs sit together to enjoy the most important meal of the day.  For that reason, we make sure you get a fulfilling and delicious breakfast before you start your day in DC, a city full of secrets, excitement, intrigue and passion.

American Guest House is located in the lovely and upscale Kalorama neighborhood situated between Dupont Circle and Adams Morgan, steps to Woodley Park, Cardozo, Georgetown, Zoo and the White House.  From here you can easily travel anywhere in the city and vicinity by taxi, bus, metro, zip cars, rental cars, Ubers, boats, you can also walk, run, bike anywhere.  What is your pleasure?
