Art Gallery and Guest House

Must Try

Smack in the heart of historical Washington, D.C. is the enchanting and awe-inspiring DC GuestHouse, which fairly overflows with rare artwork, kitsch, and personality. You’ll feel like you are spending the night in the movie “A Night at the Museum,” what with art-sensory overload and eclectic pieces like the Ming wooden statue from the late 1400s, a 3,000-year-old African stone carving, and glass pieces by sculptor Dale Chihuly. There are only seven rooms in this house, each with its own personality and flavor, and they book up fast. The sheets smell so good, you’ll want to bury yourself in the pillows and never come out. The four owners are the house’s “curators,” who also take up residence, greet guests, and prepare daily breakfast that is always a surprise. The house also attracts a unique clientele from celebrities and artists to business travelers and politicians who all enjoy cultural conversation and networking over breakfast.
