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

I went to DC for a one day stay with my wife and we were looking for a place to spend the night at. It was a last minute book but let me tell you, it was an amazing stay and the staff were really nice and helpful. The place is clean and was very cozy and comfy. I highly... More

The last minute chance to find a place to stay overnight in Washington, D.C. happened to be quite surprising! A beautiful mansion in the heart of Dupon Circle is very chic and antique. Each room has its own theme and charm, exceptionally furnished and designed. We stayed downstairs in a small yet cosy room with a spacious bathroom called 'Shanghai'daway.... More

The house if full of character and charm, the staff are exceptional and the breakfast is an added bonus. Afternoon tea is a treat each day. We stayed downstairs in the Parisienne Suite, it has a private entrance, plenty of natural light, well appointed and perfect for a family of 4. It is a quiet neighbour hood, a variety of... More

Lovely house in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood. The breakfast, our "light house" room and friendly staff really made our visit rememberable and... just GREAT! We spent five nights at the B&B for our honeymoon, and we will definitely recommend Swanns to our friends who wants to see DC (the location is great, too!) - or to ourselves the next... More

This was my first b&b. It was a very nice change. We stayed here on a college visit with my daughter and 72 year old mom. Our room was on the 3rd floor / Blue Sky. I was completely aware prior to booking that we would be doing steps, steps with luggage. Just take it slow. The beautiful mansion is... More

We spent two nights in different rooms. The rooms had class and character, were clean and nicely furnished. Provides a great environment to relax and enjoy the stay. The breakfast was very good.

I have been staying at the Swann House while in DC for the last 20 years. It is a beautiful stately mansion overlooking a dog park and steps to many restaurants, etc. It recently changed owners and I was wondering if it would be the same experience. Happy to report that manager Isabelle and team have maintained and even surpassed... More

This B&B is in a fantastic location. Close enough to a metro stop but far enough away from touristy DC to give you a feel of what it is like to live in the nations capital. Close to several embassies in New Hampshire and a few blocks from embassy row on Massachusetts Ave. great bars and restaurants are within easy... More

I have traveled and stayed at Bed & Breakfasts for business and pleasure for over 30 years. I prefer the personalized, intimate environment that still respects my need for privacy and safety. I like to be close to everything, but be able to get away from it all as well. The Swann House has figured out the way to do... More
