The International Guest House is 4 1/2 miles north of the White House in the picturesque, residential 16th Street Heights neighborhood. We are located next to three major bus lines that run every 10-15 minutes along 14th St. NW, 16th St NW, and Kennedy St NW. The bus lines go east to Ft. Totten to get the subway to Union Station or south to the National Mall area where the White House, national memorials, and Smithsonian museums are located.  The Yellow and Green subway lines are easily accessed by taking a short bus ride south on 14th or 16th streets.
