The location of Ivy Mansion was great. The owner was very helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. It is in a nice neighborhood. Though parking in the area is at a premium, there was free on-street parking available nearby.

Came here for a concert at the Verizon Center and our weekend getaway for our anniversary. Excellent location; Dana provided a parking pass so it was not a hassle once we were stationary. Room is BEAUTIFUL; we stayed in the Ella Jo. Amenities have completely updated bathroom and bedroom. Was very relaxing and serene, and exactly what we needed. Would... More

Great location. Accommodating and friendly. We arrived late (100am) and they gave us the combination to the lock box that contained our key. Would stay here again on my next visit to DC. Room was large and clean.

First of all, the owner-manager is a very nice and helpful person, she will really make you feel at home. The room we stayed in was pretty big, very good bed and linens. The only not so great thing is the bathroom`s location, even though it is for your own use only, it is outside the bedroom. It was not... More

We loved the location of this place. We stayed in the Garden Apartment for a few weeks. The quality of the accomodation was average. Not amazing but not too bad. The owner Dana was nice, but a little disorganized. The kitchen was not stocked very well. Overall a good fit for what we needed but there are probably nicer places... More

Thank you so much for your honest feedback; guest commentary is the main way that I can improve the experience of staying at the Ivy Mansion B&B! Since your last visit, I replaced the cookware with a larger set and increased the dinnerware and cutlery sets from 4 to 8 place settings. The new microwave--larger and jazzier what with the...

We stayed in the Garden Apartment at the Ivy Mansion for 6 nights. Our son was living in Washington so he suggested this place. We drove from the Chicago area to Washington, D.C. Dana gave us a parking pass for the week at no extra charge. If you do drive and park there just be aware of the street cleaning... More

Our stay at The Ivy Mansion could not have been better! My BF and I were in D.C. for the presidential inauguration and happened upon Dana's place online. I spoke with her several times before our trip and she was kind and helpful. Upon arriving to her home, we were greeted warmly and found the accommodations to be top notch.... More

The big apartment in the top floor its great and very stylish, we loved it. Quiet although right at a major street. Dana is a lovely host - had some nice talks. Just look out to find... More

We really liked the house, our room and the location. The hostess was very attentive, helpful with advice on where to go and how to get there and a great conversationalist. It's close to everywhere we needed to be including Georgetown and close to a Metro station.
