I love love love the Mansion on O. It is the coolest place I have ever been to. Good food, awesome live music, great buys, wonderful hotel, great place to explore and discover all of the secret doors and themed rooms. This is a must come to place if you have kids or just by yourself. I came for Sunday... More

I had an opportunity to visit The Mansion on O St and I was so floored at how cool this hidden treasure is!!! It has had so many famous guest/visitors. I was just speechless. When you enter there just a "peacefulness" that takes over. At the time we were looking for a unique venue for a private party. This would... More

I have not eaten here nor stayed here (the prices are quite high for a hotel), but it was a fantastic place to explore! On the firs visit we spent almost 2 hours and found 16 secret doors (although several are small access panels, and 3 of them had signs saying they were secret doors but not to open them).... More

it has great quirky accommodations. The Lennon room, for example, has Julian's guitar in it and more. There are more than a dozen secret passage ways and rooms. The food is excellent and, well, ambiance is the best in all of DC.

This is a fun, unique place to visit. You need to make a reservation. In the DuPont Circle area and easy to get to. The mansion is full of memorabilia from notable people who stayed there. It is fun to visit the different rooms with some pretty amazing decor. There are also some 60 (maybe more) hidden doors which are... More

We visited here mainly to walk through the mansion and take in various rooms and interesting décor. Some rooms were filled with rock-n-roll memorabilia that was of much interesting. They do offer brunch which is reportedly very good, but we did not experience. Definitely worth a visit - leave yourself a couple of hours to fully explore and appreciate the... More

We did the Sunday brunch. The food was good. The wait staff was friendly. After brunch we walked around searching for secret doors...we found 8. There was so much to look at. It was a fun way to spend a few hours. We will be back.

A stay at 'The Mansion' is unique and magical. Each room offers it's own magic and a stay here will be remembered for a long time. The first time I stayed here I had to walk through a number of mirrors to find my room. Hidden stairways and corridors give you not only a sense of privacy, but the experience... More

I came there with an open mind The Valentines dinner was advertised for $160 with tax for two. The food was good but they gave you such small portions. Although my steak was a fair size and cooked perfectly. Service was average. Plates were not cleared promptly and drinks refills had to be asked for. Employees seemed friendly but stiff.... More

We hosted our company holiday party at this hotel and the guests were thrilled. For the first 45 minutes, guests went on a self-directed tour of the mansion and got to look for hidden doorways and random treasures throughout the house. After that, guests enjoyed cocktails and then dinner was served - an elaborate buffet presented beautifully. The staff did... More
