I bought our tickets at Groupon while trying to look for something to do. This was a great find. We did the champagne tour. This tour was truly unique. The mansion is a combination of a hotel, museum, and mystery tour. There were over 70 hidden doorways and we could only find 7. This was a great way to spend...

Five brown stone (30K Sq feet) tied together with secret doors with everything imaginable on walls,tables,book cases that is for sale. Also a hotel with odd rooms. Worth a visit. Great break from crowds on National Mall,

The Mansion is a unique stay. There are antiques, art, musical instruments, hats, secret passages and more. We loved the Champagne Tour and the Hidden Door Hunt. Our room was completely private. However, we loved chatting and jamming in the public rooms. The mansion is nothing like a hotel. It's more like staying in a museum/very rich townhouse. It's a...

If you've ever wanted to visit the Clue gameboard, or spend the night in an Agatha Christie mystery, this is your place. With guitars. Lots and lots of guitars. And musical nuggets. Studio tapes of the Doors, Beatles and Bruce working out lyrics in real time. Fascinating. The rooms are kitschy and rambling, but the whole experience is really, really...

The Mansion is a museum, an events space and a hotel. How does it stack up as a hotel ? Well if you are booking you know it is not a conventional hotel - rooms stuffed with curios, no restaurant or guest amenities. All that is fine and indeed welcomed. My problem with it was perhaps mainly with the room...

Who wouldn't love a big old mansion full of secret doors? The house is filled, top to bottom with unusual collectibles and secret entrances. Everything is unique, down to the bathroom fixtures. The scavenger hunt was a lot of fun!

My wife loves scavenger hunt games, so why not take her on a real life hunt? Instead of Geo tracking in the heat, we went to this beautiful, history drenched palace for a few hours of fun. The place is 3 homes merged together for a total of 30,000 square feet. It has 4 floors and 70 hidden doors. Rosa...

Took my deeply bereaved friend to a champagne tour that sounded like JUST THE THING. And....IT WAS!!!(Gotta love Living Social!!) We laughed hysterically and 'Oooohed and Aaahed' in every room, curving hallway and rickety stairway - enjoying (pricey, at $15.) seconds on champagne. An eBayer, I was LOVING eying all of the BRIC-A-BRAC crammed into EVERY NOOK AND CRANNY...AND ALL...

A very interesting experience (but probably not for everyone): the place is a curiosity cabinet, every room (and every space) filled with collectibles, antiques, boot sale finds etc etc. The management is personal, very helpful, and enthusiastic. I will return!
