Our room the Lighthouse room was quirky being round, not very big but very pretty and sunny. The devote was all in keeping and even the alarm noise of the sea and seagulls a little surprise in the morning. As for breakfast- wow a culinary delight every day. Couldn't wait to find out what was in store as I walked... More

The Swann house is a wonderfully elegant place to stay. The rooms are beautifully decorated and are rich with history. The Jennifer Green Room is the nicest in our opinion with a large balcony overlooking the pool and courtyard. The breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit, French toast one day and a ham crusted quiche the next morning. The staff... More

My husband and adult daughter stayed in the Serengetti Suite which is in the basement of the hotel and has it's own private entrance. The website photos really do not do justice to this suite - it is very luxurious and extremely comfortable. Being in a basement meant that it was very quiet and the air con worked well. The... More

I could not have been more delighted with the accommodations we received at the Swann House. Perfect for a weekend trip with my 15-year-old son who had never experienced Washington D.C. After a delicious breakfast we walked everywhere to see the sights and, when the temperature and humidity soared, we rented bikes or hopped on the metro back to a... More

Very nice place. Wonderful breakfast. Accommodating and welcoming staff. We were visiting our son, who lives nearby, and they invited him to join us for breakfast, which was so nice. Great stay, will be back.

My wife and I were looking to try a B&B in the DC area and found this gem in the Dupont Circle region. We initially booked 1 night with plans to head to the eastern coast, but enjoyed the house/staff so much that we stayed for 5 days! European flair with careful attention to detail. Each morning the breakfast was... More

Swann House is a beautiful historic home in a great location. We stayed in the Blue Sky suite with our 10 yr old granddaughter for 5 days. The staff was very friendly, helpful and catered to our granddaughter's food preferences. We loved their breakfasts, the very private pool, and separate small room for our granddaughter! They made us feel like... More

Great location (to Metro) of the Swann House along with on-site free parking are both important features for a no-hassle Washington DC visit. To our delight, the owner and the staff at Swann House are all so hospitable and friendly! The breakfasts are delicious, offering both continental as well as a daily cooked dish. Sherry is also available in the... More
