We spent four nights in the White Rose room at this nice B&B. The room is small but has an extra room for wardrobe purpose. This room also contains the heating system which at least in wintertime makes noise at certain intervals during the night but we learned to adopt the noise in our sleep. Breakfast is marvellous with a...

My wife and I have stayed at Swann House twice, both for our wedding night and our first anniversary. On both occasions it's been a delight, with luxurious, unique rooms (we've tried two of the many available), a very friendly and hospitable staff, and a delicious breakfast. The common areas are also charming, beautiful and comfortable, and really everything about...

My son and I recently stayed at the Swann House for three nights--and it completely changed our minds about bed and breakfasts. Previous to this stay I had always cherished my complete privacy and anonymity while vacationing. However, the Swann House quickly and assuredly changed my mind about this on the very first day. The manger gave us excellent advice...

This is a wonderful place to stay in one of DC's best neighborhoods. Everything you need is right outside your door step - including great cafe and restaurant life as well as a short walk to Metro and Dupont Circle. The breakfast is delicious, there is coffee provided throughout the day and Rita - the Innkeeper - is a delightful...

We were delighted at not only the incredible comfort, kind staff and wonderful food (accommodating dietary needs) but the perfect location of walking distance to DuPont Circle was idea for lovely walks back after dinner. Room was comfortable, bed was luxurious and our time spent will not be the last! Only issue would be navigating the stairs if you are...

What a wonderful B&B! Very comfortable, great staff, convenient location, parking available, traditional decor and fabo breakfast. I have been staying at the Swann House for over 10 years on business trips and never been disappointed. So. Ugh more interesting than a sterile hotel. Breakfast conversation inside the Capitol Beltway is always enlightening!

My wife took me here as a surprise because she knows I love DC but that I always stay in sterile hotel accommodations while here on business. Swann House was comfortable like home but luxurious like a fine guest house. The room was spacious, the breakfast was a epicurean experience and the staff was welcoming and helpful. Great place for...

Our visit was made very pleasurable by the thoughtfulness of the staff at Swann House. The room was spacious and comfortable, and its decor was amusingly distinctive. Breakfast was excellent and varied. Best of all was the location, an easy walk to Dupont Circle and the subway, as well as a reasonable walking distance from the Mall. A great place...

The Swann House is located in the DuPont Circle neighborhood, a couple of minutes walk to shops and restaurants. Taxi or Uber to National Mall, Georgetown, airport....etc, all within 15 minutes. The Swann House is beautiful. Our room was spacious, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was great, lot of variety and served in the dining room. In between trips around town...
