My husband and adult daughter stayed in the Serengetti Suite which is in the basement of the hotel and has it's own private entrance. The website photos really do not do justice to this suite - it is very luxurious and extremely comfortable. Being in a basement meant that it was very quiet and the air con worked well. The...

I could not have been more delighted with the accommodations we received at the Swann House. Perfect for a weekend trip with my 15-year-old son who had never experienced Washington D.C. After a delicious breakfast we walked everywhere to see the sights and, when the temperature and humidity soared, we rented bikes or hopped on the metro back to a...

Very nice place. Wonderful breakfast. Accommodating and welcoming staff. We were visiting our son, who lives nearby, and they invited him to join us for breakfast, which was so nice. Great stay, will be back.

My wife and I were looking to try a B&B in the DC area and found this gem in the Dupont Circle region. We initially booked 1 night with plans to head to the eastern coast, but enjoyed the house/staff so much that we stayed for 5 days! European flair with careful attention to detail. Each morning the breakfast was...

Swann House is a beautiful historic home in a great location. We stayed in the Blue Sky suite with our 10 yr old granddaughter for 5 days. The staff was very friendly, helpful and catered to our granddaughter's food preferences. We loved their breakfasts, the very private pool, and separate small room for our granddaughter! They made us feel like...

Great location (to Metro) of the Swann House along with on-site free parking are both important features for a no-hassle Washington DC visit. To our delight, the owner and the staff at Swann House are all so hospitable and friendly! The breakfasts are delicious, offering both continental as well as a daily cooked dish. Sherry is also available in the...

The last minute chance to find a place to stay overnight in Washington, D.C. happened to be quite surprising! A beautiful mansion in the heart of Dupon Circle is very chic and antique. Each room has its own theme and charm, exceptionally furnished and designed. We stayed downstairs in a small yet cosy room with a spacious bathroom called 'Shanghai'daway....

The house if full of character and charm, the staff are exceptional and the breakfast is an added bonus. Afternoon tea is a treat each day. We stayed downstairs in the Parisienne Suite, it has a private entrance, plenty of natural light, well appointed and perfect for a family of 4. It is a quiet neighbour hood, a variety of...
