My first comment: if you stay at Ivy Mansion make sure you know its street address! We didn't, and when we arrived at night we had awful trouble finding the B&B because we didn't have an exact address for the bus/tax driver to enter into his GPS. We had the address from the website, which is a corner, but the B&B isn't actually on a corner so we were very confused.
Apart from that, we enjoyed our stay. Dana was out of town but still very friendly and helpful. Our room was spacious and had everything we needed, although it lacked some nice finishing touches (e.g. the soap dispenser was just about empty when we arrived). We heard people in the upstairs rooms, but I didn't hold that against it.
The location is excellent - the metro is a few minutes walk away, and there are very pleasant cafes and restaurants within 10-15 minutes walk.
When I hopefully return to DC, I'd stay in Dupont Circle again and would definitely consider the Ivy Mansion.
