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...

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...

After our days of soaking in US history and museums, the Swann House was the perfect place to come home to. Built in the 1800's it is furnished to match the era, elegantly and ever so tasteful. Each one of the staff is part of an amazing team that provides the best service and could not be more friendly or...

The Swann house is a wonderfully elegant place to stay. The rooms are beautifully decorated and are rich with history. The Jennifer Green Room is the nicest in our opinion with a large balcony overlooking the pool and courtyard. The breakfast was delicious with fresh fruit, French toast one day and a ham crusted quiche the next morning. The staff...
