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 previously unfamiliar. Although it is pricier than either the Hilton or the Carlyle Suites, Swann House will now be our first choice for future visits to DC. The accommodations at Swann House are peaceful, well appointed and comfortable, and the staff is very friendly. We stayed in the Robertson Room on the third floor in the rear of the building, and we would be happy to stay there again. Breakfast is served from 7:30 to 9:45 am and is ample. We had different varieties of quiche each morning, along with an assortment of fruit, juices, cereals, hard boiled eggs and breads. There is a small swimming pool in the rear patio which was very welcome. The only disadvantage of the Swann House is the absence of an elevator. If your mobility is limited, you might have trouble negotiating the front stairs up to the porch and the stairs up to the rooms on the second and third floors (there are no guest rooms on the first floor). Swann House is in a very pedestrian-friendly area, close to both Dupont Circle and 14th Street. There are many very nice restaurants within easy walking distance. If you are a walker, it is a little over a mile down 16th Street to the White House and the Mall. If you don't want to walk, you can rent a bicycle from Capital Bikeshare from the stand at 17th and T Street less than a block away. We strongly recommend the Swann House.
