We stayed here last week for cherry blossom season. It's a beautiful brick house from 1880. The common rooms are downstairs which includes a formal dining room for morning breakfasts, a big living room, and a day room with a fridge and self-serve drinks. The bedrooms are on the second and third floors. Our third-floor room was cozy, comfy bed,... More

If you want a cosy atmosphere, want to feel somewhere like old England or France, this is the place to be. If you do not want to have breakfast with others, there are small tables for 2 to 4 people. The breakfast selection is very good, the rooms comfortable and unique. The manager and staff are charming and very helpful.... More

We spent 5 days in Washington. DC and could not have chosen a better hotel or location. Friendly staff and comfortable room. Afternoon snacks and sherry was served every day. Fresh coffees and tea on demand

We loved our stay at the Swann House. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. The breakfasts were excellent. The staff was hospitable and helpful. We loved our room - we stayed in the Regent Room. This will be my go to place when visiting DC.

The staff at the swann house are very friendly and accommodating. I had reserved a much smaller room than I had intended, and they upgraded me to a truly lovely room, with a nice soaking tub. Rooms on the 3rd floor are very quiet and peaceful. Wifi is very good (better than a typical hotel). Breakfasts were tasty and healthy,... More

The title states it all...it was a wonderful weekend. From being graciously welcomed on our arrival, to wonderful dinner recommendations, through a warm departure--all activities were exceptional. We definitely will go back for another relaxing weekend at Swann House.

It's in a very distinguished home in Washington's beautiful Dupont Circle neighborhood, incredibly convenient too. The manager Isabelle could not be more helpful, and our breakfast, taken at a table by a scenic picture window, was delicious and just felt grand. A superb way to start the day. The mushroom and cheese omelet was very tasty, as was everything we... More

We were pleased beyond belief with our five-night stay at the Swann. Little did we know when we booked it on line that the historic home would be so lovely, the staff so friendly, warm and welcoming, and the breakfasts so delicious. From the moment we arrived, the staff made us feel right at home. The lovingly restored mansion was... More

Visited Swann House last weekend and had a wonderful time, as usual. We are frequent visitors and love the convenient location, just off DuPont Circle. The accommodations were superb, the food delicious, and the staff is always friendly and helpful. A quick ride on the Circulator bus took us to Georgetown for the day for a little shopping and sightseeing.... More
