A waiter at J Paul's in Georgetown was so helpful by recommending we visit the O Street Mansion. Had he not - we would never have found it. Secret doorways (we found 6 and 2 others were opened and identified - there are many more). Eclectic goodies all for sale - art, clothing, furniture. If you love jumble sales, items... More

We took our 2 granddaughters to the Mansion for lunch/tour as a high-school graduation present. They were delighted and we had a wonderful experience. We arrived at Noon and were seated immediately for lunch. Our car was VIP parked for us, which was especially nice. Our lunch was exceptional, and of course the atmosphere was thrilling. There is so much... More

We received a gift certificate for the Mansion on O as a wedding gift, which we redeemed last weekend. I could not say enough nice things about this lovely and unique hotel, our kind and attentive hosts, and their amazing and friendly staff. When we arrived, we were greeted by Ted, one of the owner/founders, who gave us a great... More

This is a kind of museum. You can book a room and stay there, but we went just for the afternoon. 100 rooms and 72 secret doors - well, we only found about 8 of them, but we sure had fun looking. 5 former row houses joined together as one mansion, with an absolutely amazing assortment of antiques, old books,...

This Hotel is a breathe of fresh air from a conventional Hotel. Hotels when they first stared all were run the Way H and Ted run this place. Amazing service, food and lots of great surprises are filled in this mansion.

This was a perfect way to end our “surprise wedding” weekend at the Mansion on O Street. We invited about 20 friends and family to join us for Sunday Brunch on the morning after. We were seated at one very long table in the main room where we, just 12 hours earlier, had our wedding and reception. (These guys must... More

We had a perfect time at the Mansion. Everything from Eric taking such care with us when we arrived to the final bringing of our car around when we left could have hardly been better. I am sure we have never had an experience like this before. I am sure we have never been to a place that engaged us... More

We had a fabulous time at the Mansion on O Street. The mansion is so cool and we loved the treasure hunt. We only found 7 of the 30-something secret doors! The Drag show was outstanding. All the entertainers were great, but the first one was remarkable. Her comedic talent made the crowd bowl over with laughter and her singing... More

In the heart of Washington, DC, this agglomeration of five houses looks ordinary from the outside. But step inside, and you're transported to a magical place. It's a museum, a hotel, a residence, a fine restaurant, a conference center, an antiques emporium, maybe the home of a rich and crazy uncle... but those terms don't begin to describe the experience....

We went to the Mansion for a 4th of July gathering and scavenger hunt. I could have stayed for days exploring all the art work and furnishings and hunting for secret doors. It was a blast. They have so many unique themed guest rooms, and a great 50's diner kitchen too. Take the time and visit -- maybe even stay... More
