Spent 2 nights at the Swann House; beautiful Victorian Inn with period pieces. We had the Il Duomo Room on the third floor; amazing with turrent room bath complete with claw foot tub and shower. Amazingly convenient to all attractions and restaurants. In Historic DuPont Circle it seemed there could not have been a better location for our tourist activities... More

We were graciously welcomed and made to feel at home with kind attention from Isabel and Nicole. The Parisienne Room is tastefully decorticated accordingly, and the oversized shower with dual rain heads is just what one needs after exploring DC on a summer day . . . or a dip in the pool that is surrounded by flora and fauna....

Our stay at Swann House was great. Not only is the building beautiful, but it is conveniently located near DuPont Circle. The subway is close by or you could hop in a cab and be at the Mall in roughly ten minutes. The staff was friendly and helpful. We were surprised to learn that there is even a pool in... More

We spent a week with my husband on this bed and breakfast and we loved it. Everything was amazing, the location, the room, the bathroom and the staff. The only thing we would change are the curtains on the rooms, on our room the sun was inside the room at 7 am every day.

As each of our grandchildren turn 10 years old, we take them on a trip to wherever they want to go. Our granddaughter Piper decided on Washington D. C. We stayed at the Swann House, an incredible B and B close to shops, parks and restaurants. It was such a great place to stay - delicious breakfasts, a wonderful neighborhood,... More

We stayed for two nights in the Lighthouse room, which is very small but very sweet and romantic at the same time. The hotel is situated in a beautiful old building in Dupont Circle, which we loved for its proximity to interesting independent shops - including the fantastic Kramerbooks, and some lovely restaurants. All members of staff that we met... More

Our family was excited to visit Washington DC this week along with our WWII veteran father/uncle as he participated in a program at the Pentagon. We needed just one night stay but needed 3 rooms. We looked at a variety of options and fell upon the Swann House. To be sure we could arrange for everyone's needs we called the... More

The Swann Inn was an unforgettable experience for my husband and I. We came here for our wedding anniversary and we were out of words with the kindness and care demonstrated by the staff. We enjoyed every second of it, and we will be returning. The romantic scenery is the perfect place for couples to enjoy. Rita was awesome and... More

the hotel is very nice, it has a little pool to refresh. The location is very close to the important places in d.c. The breakfast is very likely and the housekeeping stuff very friendly. The neighborhood is quiet. They have a nice grand piano in the living room. Absolutely recommendable place to stay.

Our room was perfect. Spacious, great bathroom. Deck with table and chairs. Breakfast was good for continental would have liked full breakfast. They arranged for our favorite champagne upon arrival. Great dog park across the street. Very very nice stay.
