I stayed at the Swann House for a week - I was on business travel. I can't say enough about how thoughtful, considerate, and caring they were - I felt treasured as their guest. The location is also wonderful - in a residential area but still close to the metro and taxis if you need. Walking distance to Dupont Circle,... More

What a nice place. A great place to stay. Breakfast was so pleasant access to the metro was great. Parking was not the best but manageable. I would not hesitate to stay there again. I enjoyed being in a neighborhood setting.

Swann House was hands down the best find in DC. We had a beautiful 'room" - it was more like a suite - that was so historical and just magical, adding to our DC experience. Having afternoon cookies, breakfast in the morning and a friendly and kind staff made our trip to Swann house a five star experience. When we... More

I came to DC by myself for a get away trip and to walk up the same steps that they have a picture of President Taft walking up was and experience. I enjoy staying where I can get right into a neighborhood and this is a fantastic way to stay in DC. Could not recommend it more highly.

Spent one night here. We had the Blue Room; perfect for my mom, son and me! Comfortable, great service, and beautifully decorated. We did not get to enjoy the pool, since it was raining. My 12 year old son did not find breakfast too appealing (not very kid friendly). My mother and I thought it was good, not great, but... More

Spent 2 nights at the Swann House; beautiful Victorian Inn with period pieces. We had the Il Duomo Room on the third floor; amazing with turrent room bath complete with claw foot tub and shower. Amazingly convenient to all attractions and restaurants. In Historic DuPont Circle it seemed there could not have been a better location for our tourist activities... More

We were graciously welcomed and made to feel at home with kind attention from Isabel and Nicole. The Parisienne Room is tastefully decorticated accordingly, and the oversized shower with dual rain heads is just what one needs after exploring DC on a summer day . . . or a dip in the pool that is surrounded by flora and fauna....

Our stay at Swann House was great. Not only is the building beautiful, but it is conveniently located near DuPont Circle. The subway is close by or you could hop in a cab and be at the Mall in roughly ten minutes. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were surprised to learn that there is even a pool in... More

We spent a week with my husband on this bed and breakfast and we loved it. Everything was amazing, the location, the room, the bathroom and the staff. The only thing we would change are the curtains on the rooms, on our room the sun was inside the room at 7 am every day.

As each of our grandchildren turn 10 years old, we take them on a trip to wherever they want to go. Our granddaughter Piper decided on Washington D. C. We stayed at the Swann House, an incredible B and B close to shops, parks and restaurants. It was such a great place to stay - delicious breakfasts, a wonderful neighborhood,... More
