We took amex because being so close to D.C....these are the folks that use it. it did cost us a bit more, but to us it was worth it.I just had a business guest stay here who ALWAYS stays at B&Bs, if he can. He is the President/CEO of a 50+ employee company, with 2 offices. His client met him here and they chatted in our living room before going to dinner. He said he'd be back as it looks like they'll be doing business here.
He pulled out his AMEX card to pay. Don't rule it out! .
