This is the best bed & breakfast establishment we've stayed in over our twelve weeks visiting the USA. From first contact, we knew Swann House would be special. We arrived late, to find our key with a welcoming note, and the room's lights on with soft music playing. Moreover on departure, we were presented with a delightful picnic for our...

I was there for an interview and really enjoyed staying at the Swann House. The room was comfortable, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the pool was pleasant to cool off in during the heat. I also liked the location because I could park my car in the driveway and walk to anything I needed.

We recently stayed at the Swann House, and loved the experience. Of the three rooms we stayed in, each was great and had a very different character. Having the opportunity to not stay in only one room worked out very well as it gave us a chance to become better acquainted with all the house has to offer. And the...

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Washington D.C. and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Swann House. It is an elegant B&B, built in the 1800s, with wood floors, heirloom rugs and crystal chandeliers. Each room is unique with lovely antique furnishings. It is located close to Dupont Circle and within walking distance to many...

We spent a week at the Swann House which was a few blocks from our daughter's apartment and conveniently located to the metro. Our flight was delayed so we did not arrive until 10 pm, but the general manager Isabelle made sure we had specific instructions on accessing the front door and the key to our room was waiting for...

We just spent three nights at the Swann House while in DC to visit our daughter who lives only a block or two away.
