The staff at this bed and breakfast really make the stay enjoyable. Breakfasts were great and so were the afternoon treats. The B&B is well situated in Dupont Circle. It's near great places to eat and a 10 minute walk to the Metro. We would go back!

My boyfriend and I only had a brief stay at the Swann House, but we stayed in the Ill Duomo. It was the most awesome room, especially the bathroom (the tub had the coolest features) . The bed was comfortable. The room was very clean. The balcony was pleasant also to enjoy the early spring weather. We were sad that... More

The Good- The Swann House was located in a beautiful historic neighborhood which was somewhat close to the Metro. The staff were extremely kind and helpful and gave us tips on the best places to eat and see. Their advice was spot on. Sitting on the front porch in the morning and evening seemed to be the best place. The... More

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.
