This is the address you want when going to D.C. The Swann House is located in the Dupont Circle area and is walking distance to most everything you want to see in the capital. And if you need the subway, the stop is close by. But the Swann Inn is more than just a place to sleep – Isabelle, the... More

We recently stayed 2 nights at the Swann House in Washington DC. The location is ideal, among some embassys and close to Dupont Circle Metro station, 4 stops away from most of the sites. There are plenty of good restaurants within walking distance. The Swann House is a classy B&B and we'll stay there again on our next trip to... More

If you plan spending a few days in DC, there is one unique place where to stay: the Swann House. Perfectly located in DC, this charming house will provide all you can expect from a place full of history, decorated with taste (each room is unique), a splendid place full of romantism. You start the day with a nice breakfast,... More

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....
