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

I did not stay at the hotel, but ate in the restaurant. Eclectic is an understatement for the decor at The Mansion on O Street. Excellent is an understatement for the food. The occasion was a large group dinner. While the salad was good but uninspiring, each course got better: the entrees were great and the deserts heavenly. Shrimp scampi... More

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
