My husband and I just returned from a trip to Washington D.C. and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Swann House. It is an elegant B&B, built in the 1800s, with wood floors, heirloom rugs and crystal chandeliers. Each room is unique with lovely antique furnishings. It is located close to Dupont Circle and within walking distance to many...

We spent a week at the Swann House which was a few blocks from our daughter's apartment and conveniently located to the metro. Our flight was delayed so we did not arrive until 10 pm, but the general manager Isabelle made sure we had specific instructions on accessing the front door and the key to our room was waiting for...

We just spent three nights at the Swann House while in DC to visit our daughter who lives only a block or two away. We had previously stayed at the Hilton and the Carlyle Suites, both of which are in the vicinity. These hotels were fully booked, so our daughter told us about the Swann House, with which we were...

After long walks and navigating the city on a visit with my daughter, I was happy to have a charming well-appointed bed and breakfast to call home. The room are gorgeous and the house is larger than meets the eye. The pool was absolutely inviting. I arrived and it hadn't been opened as predicted but the staff did manage to...

We have just returned from a delightful seven night stay at this amazing bed and breakfast. The front garden and first floor common rooms welcomed and charmed us. We were greeted by Isabelle and shown to our beautifully decorated room.

My husband and I stayed at Swann House last May 2013. I cannot express how much we enjoyed our stay. We stayed in two different rooms so that I could have a bathtub for part of the stay. First we stayed in the red room and the room adjacent to it. Both were lovely. The red room was smallish, but...

I had a most wonderful experience at this lovely B&B. My room had a nice view over New Hampshire Avenue to the dog park - being a dog owner this was fine with me. The room, although small, was perfect for me. Each room is decorated differently and each has all the amenities one could imagine. Even though I could...
