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.

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...

I live right down the street from Swann House and don't have a guest room! My elderly parents stayed there last week and loved it. The especially raved about the breakfast and the comfortable living room where my Dad read the paper every morning. Would recommend!!

We recently stated 3 nights at this elegant 'Inn' in the heart of DuPont Circle. Well situated in a quiet part of the city but close to Metro and good restaurants. Friendly and helpful staff, nice touches (eg afternoon sherry and home baked cookies) that differentiate the establishment and made our stay a uniquely enjoyable one. Extensive freshly prepared breakfast...
