“We loved this Bed & Breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2010

We stayed here while attending a convention recently, and thought it was wonderful. It was fun to be in the Dupont neighborhood amoungst beautiful homes, restaurants and shops. We walked to the White House. The people that manage te Swann are as friendly and receptive as we've ever encountered. Happy to book restaurant reservations for us and make recommendations. The bed is possibly the most comfortable we've ever slept in. We highly recommend the Swann House!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2010

We stayed at Swann House for 2 nights in Jan 2010 and had a great experince! The staff were so welcoming and accomodating of an early check in after an overnight flight from San Francisco. The breakfasts were amazing and the location was superb. After a month of travelling in the US, this was certainly our best accomodation all-round and excellent value for money. We'll be back!! Thank you Rick, Richard and staff.

My husband and I just stayed at the Swann House for the fourth time and again.. loved it!!
The rooms vary in size and are very tastefully decorated and comfortable. Lots of attention to detail.
In addition to the lovely rooms the service is top-notch. Breakfasts are outstanding as is the afternoon tea "treat". The tea/coffee/water/fruit/sherry that are available all day makes it feel so much like home.
Location is great, too... walking distance to everything. Great restaurants, shopping and all that DC has to offer are close by.
We've stayed in some of the top DC hotels (Hay-Adams, Jefferson, etc) but prefer the comfort level of the Swann House.

Loved the neighborhood, loved the staff, loved the rooms. I've been coming back for years b/c there's nothing better. It's super convenient and you can't beat DuPont Circle for a great location. Walk or metro to the Mall. There's a ton of great restaurants close by too. And the staff gives the best advice about everything. I can't say enough good stuff about this place. No boring corporate hotel experiences for me but with all the privacy I need.

We absolutely loved the Jennifer Green Room. Spacious private deck overlooking the swimming pool, oversized dressing area off the shower. Quiet, leisurely stay in DC.

My wife and I had an absolutely wonderful time while staying at Swann House. The rooms were clean and very nice. We were able to relax at all hours of the day. The staff was fantastic, they knew the city well and were able to point us in the direction of both popular tourist destinations as well as local hot spots. We had a wonderful trip and we owe it all to Swann House.
