Despite arriving later in the day (after 6), we were greeted by a pile of laundry on the floor on the room outside we were staying. Had to make our own breakfast (ended up spending extra money to purchase locally as we weren't even told how to set up the coffeemaker). Came back after touring each day to unmade beds.... More

The location is in a nice neighbourhood, with plenty of restaurants and nice houses. The underground station is 2 mins walk, the house is very nice and well maintained. The room we had was massive and quiet. The hostess was super friendly and gave us a lot of tips that helped us enjoying our visit to Washington.

The Ivy Mansion is a great place to stay while in Washington DC. Dana is an amazing host. Dupont Circle is a very quiet and beautiful neighborhood. The Dupond Circle subway Station is only 5 minute walk from Ivy Mansion. In our room, we had everything that we ever needed. We had our own bathroom, sitting area, pantry and even... More

The location of Ivy Mansion was great. The owner was very helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. It is in a nice neighborhood. Though parking in the area is at a premium, there was free on-street parking available nearby.

Came here for a concert at the Verizon Center and our weekend getaway for our anniversary. Excellent location; Dana provided a parking pass so it was not a hassle once we were stationary. Room is BEAUTIFUL; we stayed in the Ella Jo. Amenities have completely updated bathroom and bedroom. Was very relaxing and serene, and exactly what we needed. Would... More

Great location. Accommodating and friendly. We arrived late (100am) and they gave us the combination to the lock box that contained our key. Would stay here again on my next visit to DC. Room was large and clean.

First of all, the owner-manager is a very nice and helpful person, she will really make you feel at home. The room we stayed in was pretty big, very good bed and linens. The only not so great thing is the bathroom`s location, even though it is for your own use only, it is outside the bedroom. It was not... More

We loved the location of this place. We stayed in the Garden Apartment for a few weeks. The quality of the accomodation was average. Not amazing but not too bad. The owner Dana was nice, but a little disorganized. The kitchen was not stocked very well. Overall a good fit for what we needed but there are probably nicer places... More

Thank you so much for your honest feedback; guest commentary is the main way that I can improve the experience of staying at the Ivy Mansion B&B! Since your last visit, I replaced the cookware with a larger set and increased the dinnerware and cutlery sets from 4 to 8 place settings. The new microwave--larger and jazzier what with the...

We stayed in the Garden Apartment at the Ivy Mansion for 6 nights. Our son was living in Washington so he suggested this place. We drove from the Chicago area to Washington, D.C. Dana gave us a parking pass for the week at no extra charge. If you do drive and park there just be aware of the street cleaning... More
