We recently stayed 4 nights at the Swann House. Wonderful folks, very clean room, comfortable home, tasty breakfast, convenient location, and excellent service. The innkeepers and managers take very good care of you here; no need to look anywhere else while on your DC trip. Sincerely, Patsy & Phil, N. Calif. innkeepers and TA members

Our first visit to DC, our 13th wedding anniversary, and we enjoyed every moment of our stay at Swann House Inn. The gracious hospitality extended to us daily by all the staff here truly enhanced our visit. We stayed five nights in the comforts of Milano room and felt right at home in this tastefully appointed room. At the end... More

My wife and I went to Swann House for our honeymoon and everything there couldn't have been better. The photographs of the rooms on the site do not give them enough credit because they were better then pictured and my wife was taken away by it. The staff was friendly and helpful, it was peaceful and quiet every day, fantastic... More

Very pretty B&B with extremely helpful staff. We recently stayed for 5 nights in the Milano room. My husband stayed longer in the Jennifer Green room which had its own balcony. Both rooms were fabulous - nice bathrooms, comfortable beds, desk and chesterfield, windows that open. Spotlessly clean. The staff helped us figure out how to use the city shared... More

A wonderful setting for a reunion of high school friends after forty years. A long way up the stairs required some stamina but the room was perfect with space for sleeping and gathering around a nook to talk long into the night. Breakfast was tasty, especially the blueberry French toast. Our innkeeper, Isabel became a best friend with her interest... More

As a family of three we had a wonderful stay in the Swann House Hotel suite. The accommodation was ideal and we loved the friendly helpful atmosphere. An excellent base for exploring and experiencing the American Capital.

My husband and I stayed here for one night and I wish we could have stayed longer. I chose the Jennifer Green room and if I ever get the chance to go back I will chose it again (even though the other rooms look lovely!). This room was gorgeous and the bed was incredibly comfortable. The room came complete with... More

We spent 5 nights at Swann House while touring the Washington DC area. Dupont Circle is an excellent place to be - a trendy neighbourhood with easy access to the metro and many good restaurants near bye. The staff at Swann House, under Isabel 's direction are friendly and helpful. Making restaurant recommendations and arranging dinner reservations while we were... More

This was a great location for our visit to the capital. It is close to Dupont Circle which is a metro stop as well as a big bus hop on hop off stop. It is close to great neighborhood dining areas on 14th St. and 18th St. This is a gracious historic Victorian well furnished with very helpful staff and... More

We were looking at spending yet another few nights in Washington. My husband works in the area quite frequently and becoming a little tired of the same old, same old, I decided to look for another option. We stayed at the Swann House and it truly made the trip very enjoyable. I was able to walk and/or ride the Metro... More
