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

It was a treat to get to spend a Saturday at Swann House to learn how to bake bread with the amazing Emily, and then practice yoga with a wonderful yoga instructor, Jackie, while the bread was rising. Request this special package for your next stay and you won't regret it!

I hope this "secret" will be wildly shared. I stumbled into the 'Swann" by accident. I met Rita, one of the managers on a delayed lay over in Detroit last year. She was so un-assumingly friendly, I took her up on her offer to stay at the 'Swann'. My one night stay proved that nothing in the world is "accidental".... More

My husband and I stayed at the Swann House on our wedding night in the Duomo and have returned for our wedding anniversary and just for a winter getaway in the Regent. The Swann House is beautifully, impeccably decorated. With its history emanating from every corner, and teh staff leaving out cheese plates and cookie platters by the fireplace, one... More

We really liked this place due to it's location, the friendly staff (that didn't always know the answered but who tried to help) and the accommodations. We loved the room we stayed in Shanghai'd Away, though it wouldn't be for everyone (and the mattress wasn't the best). It's hidden away in the basement, but that was perfect for us. They... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here one night for a local getaway through a deal on Groupon, and we absolutely loved it. Service was excellent and the facility itself was nothing short of wonderful. We were out a majority of the day, so the innkeeper called us with specific details regarding our check in process in the event that we... More

The location is excellent. Within walking distance are great restaurants and bars and cafés-- and if you want downtown monuments and museums, a metro stop is also within walking distance. The house itself is very grand and historic. We found it comfortable and welcoming. Though management didn't hover, they were accessible if we needed something. They offered free coffee all... More

After travelling for 26 hours from New Zealand, and arriving in the early hours at Dulles airport ( to find my suitcase had not), it was a delight to be greeted by the warmth and comfort of Swann House. Our room was exceptionally comfortable, with a huge bed and soft pillows, ideal for battling jet lag. I can't really call... More

Stayed here for a night out with my husband. My only complaint is that we only booked one night instead of two! I wish we would have had the extra night so that we could relax the following day. We stayed in Il Duomo and the bed was so comfortable and the soaking tub was so nice, I wanted to... More

Was staying in DC for a few nights for a conference. I found the Swann House and was very pleased with what i found. I arrived and was greeted in a very friendly manner, checked in and given the tour of a lovely property that was well maintained. I was shown to my room which was nicely appointed and definitely...
