“Perfect stay”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

Added a few extra personal days to a business trip that coincided with the spring Cherry Blossom Festival. This was a wonderful place to stay! Beautiful mansion, helpful staff, very clean, and great location. Lovely balcony overlooked the dog park.

Stayed in the Nantucket room while visiting friends in DC. We booked last-minute and it was the only room available. While the room is snug (as advertised on their website), on the 3rd floor, and limited off street parking, the experience was very nice. Bed & pillows very comfortable. Continental breakfast buffet included hot entree. Mid-afternoon snacks and sherry was tasty. Holiday decor was festive. Staff were very friendly. Good location / easily walkable location next to Dupont Circle.

My husband, my 23 year-old autistic son, and I had a wonderful 4 night stay at Swann House in Washington DC. Since there were three of us we stayed in the Serengetti Room which has a living room and two bedrooms which was just perfect for us. The accomodations are very luxurious and very, very clean. The breakfasts and afternoon snacks were wonderful (particularly like the artichoke and spinach eggs, the pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, and the walnut & blue cheese torte with raisin bread crackers). The Dupont Circle neighborhood is very picturesque and has many shops and restaurants which are easy to walk to (Rosemary's Thyme restaurant is the closest and the food was really great!). The metro was only about 4 or 5 blocks away and was also an easy walk. If you love history, don't miss Woodrow Wilson's house which is a little further than the metro, but is also walkable from Swann House (the tour of the Wilson house is extremely informative and well-done). We met three of the staff at Swann House, Anna, Megan, and Debra, and they were all very helpful, warm and welcoming. We would love to someday go back to Swann House and will definitely recommend it to all our friends.

We stayed for five nights in September and what a welcoming, comfortable,peaceful place so near to Washington's many places of interest. We were late in arriving due to Rail problems but our room was warmly lit, with relaxing music playing, an inviting feather bed and a welcome letter waiting for us. Our room was Il Duomo which was beautifully appointed and luxurious with the most amazing en-suite.The breakfast was excellent and the amenities first class with helpful friendly and accommodating staff. If you want to experience the many attractions of Washington which are easily accessible, but want a quiet neighbourhood for dining and relaxing after a busy sightseeing day Swann House should be your choice.,

Room Tip: The second floor room Il Duomo is just wonderful.

The perfect choice for our small & intimate wedding…the staff was warm and accommodating, the house and our room were lovely. We enjoyed a nice fire in our room on our first evening and a champagne toast on our private deck on the afternoon of our wedding. Rick, Deborah & Anne were attentive and very responsive to requests. Breakfasts were excellent, and the afternoon snacks with sherry were a nice touch. Though the house was close to capacity during our stay, we only saw and heard guests at breakfast. We were there on Halloween night, and even got to hand out candy to the trick-or-treaters (lots of fun!). DuPont Circle is a great neighborhood for walking and exploring and the Swann House is within walking distance to lots of good restaurants (try Floriana for great Italian). We would recommend Swann House and would stay there again if in the area!
