Welcome to American Guest House!

Step back in time to our stately twelve-bedroom Colonial-style home built in 1893. Each of our well-appointed rooms includes a queen-sized bed and an en-suite private bath and features fine antiques, rich fabrics, oriental rugs and wood floors. Our guests enjoy a cozy parlor, central air, color TV, and each morning a lavish breakfast of freshly brewed coffee, toast, homemade granola, yogurt, cereal and the hot breakfast specialty of the day. American Guest House is centrally located in the city in DuPont Circle and within walking distance of most of DC’s favorite attractions.


Start your morning off with a delicious homemade breakfast which is specially prepared for our guests each morning. Before embarking on your day in DC, join our guests at the dining room table for a lively conversation over coffee and a wide variety of breakfast dishes. We serve a different scrumptious breakfast each morning for our guests and we are always happy to accommodate dietary restrictions. Guests rave about our light and fluffy pancakes, savory omelets, melt-in-your-mouth French toast, and much more. After breakfast at our DC Inn, you will be ready for a full day in the bustling city!

Public Transportation

Bringing your own car to Washington DC can be challenging because rented parking is expensive and street parking is limited. However, there are some parking-garage options nearby, as well as plenty of public transportation. The two Metro stations nearest to us are DuPont Circle and Woodley Park/National Zoo, which are both an easy 10-minute walk. Our DC Inn is also located near some of the best Washington DC hotels so that car2go, buses, Uber, and Lyft are always readily available options as well.

Business Travelers

Business travelers choose to stay here for many reasons: the homey feel, the delicious breakfast, the cozy rooms, and the unbeatable location. We are conveniently located within minutes from many of the most popular convention venues, including the Washington Hilton (which is less than a block away!), the Omni Shoreham Hotel (less than a mile away), Marriott Wardman Park, the Walter E. Washington Convention Center and Renaissance Hotel (both less than two miles away). 

From Our Guests…

“We wished we’d stayed longer. The room was immaculately clean and well kept, with everything we needed and we loved the “surprise” they left in our room to help us celebrate our anniversary.”
