Certificate of Excellence
American Guest House is a well appointed 12 bedroom bed and breakfast with en-suite bathrooms located in a historic 1893 Venetian Gothic building near the Washington Hilton Hotel. We are located within a 10-minute walk to Dupont Circle Metro, and only a 10 to 15-minute walk from the Wardman Park and Omni Shoreham Hotels, known for hosting conventions. We are located about 1 mile from the White House and the National Zoo, and 2 miles from the Smithsonian Museums and Monuments. Our neighborhood is a trendy, upscale, safe and beautiful area in the heart of the city. Within walking distance, you'll find several of Washington DC's best restaurants, as well as Embassy Row, specialty shops, and Rock Creek Park with its beautiful cycling and hiking trails. Culture is plentiful in DC with its majestic theaters, shows, dining options, and beautiful monuments, all only a stone's throw away from our cozy guest house!
