I had a most wonderful experience at this lovely B&B. My room had a nice view over New Hampshire Avenue to the dog park - being a dog owner this was fine with me. The room, although small, was perfect for me. Each room is decorated differently and each has all the amenities one could imagine. Even though I could... More

We had the most amazing stay in Swann House. We were coming in really late, and they took care of everything for us. We had no problem getting in as they left detailed instructions. The room was a dream! I felt like we were in a movie! From the classical music to the smell and the flowers. We stayed in... More

I stayed 3 days in this lovely B&B and enjoyed my entire time. Very classy. Very clean. Breakfast was perfect! The atmosphere is warm and inviting. Unfortunately the season for the pool is not in April so I didn't get to enjoy that perk, but I did take a glass of Sherry that they offer after 3pm and sat on... More

We had a wonderful stay here. Isabel goes out of her way to make you feel at home. The breakfast is delicious and all day there are wonderful smells coming from the kitchen. The staff were very helpful with metro information and anything needed. Very charming place and great location. We got married while in DC and our photographer Meredith... More

What a marvelous experience we had staying at the Swann House in DC, comfortably set in a handsome neighborhood in a turn of the century house that sees to your every need. We had two rooms and they were both delightful and special. The breakfast was delicious. Most of all the owner and staff were helpful, friendly and went out... More

Fabulous choice in the Dupont area - spotlessly clean, lots of victorian charm without being fussy, tall ceilings and big windows, a round tower on the corner, big featherbeds that you sink right into, an outstanding breakfast - really it's worth staying here for the breakfast alone. Definitely go for whatever special breakfast entree they're offering that day. They also... More

We have been to DC several times and love the Dupont Circle location. We have found the place that we will continue to come back to. Many excellent restaurants within walking distances. Even enjoyed the dog park across the street, made us miss ours even more!

Was inconvenienced by another hotel and sent to a bad hotel and then ended up at the Swann House. What a relief!!! This place is gorgeous! Pricey but worth splurging for an enjoyable getaway. Thank your for getting us in last minute and giving me a beautiful place to stay for my birthday night!
