I had the pleasure of staying at Swann House last week. From the moment I arrived, the friendly staff ensured I felt right at home. I went ahead and booked The Lighthouse suite - a cozy room which is decked out in a nautical theme. It was very cozy! The next morning, I was served a delicious breakfast - including...

I am just completing a wonderful two night stay at the Swann House. I stayed here for business and it made it a much better trip than being in a sterile hotel. Wonderful people, my room (Jennifer Green room with a lovely outdoor patio) was fantastic. An overall great stay.

My wife and I love the select registry, we've stayed at B&B's listed with Select registry in Vermont, Texas, New York, Rhode Island and other places and enjoyed all. So we were really looking forward to Swann house in DC for my wife's birthday weekend. Unfortunately our experience was less than stellar. What separates Select registry B&B's from others is...

Dear Guest, We are so sorry to read you had a disappointing experience while staying at Swann House. I am the one usually greeting all of our guests with no exception in the dining room at breakfast but have sometimes to attend specific requests at the same time, particularly when we are full. Your points are well taken and we...

What a great find! In a word-fabulous! Our room was very large, had a fireplace that worked, a huge closet with a Nespresso coffee maker, a large wonderful bathroom and a second floor patio. Just terrific in every way. The pictures do not do this house justice. We will definitely be back as we come to DC often. This was...

From booking to check out our experience with the kind folks at Swann House was a pleasure. The staff was easy to get in touch with and kindly accommodated our need for a late night self check-in. All communications were graced with a warm and welcoming tone. The area is mostly residential permit parking only, so we were able to...

We spent four nights in the White Rose room at this nice B&B. The room is small but has an extra room for wardrobe purpose. This room also contains the heating system which at least in wintertime makes noise at certain intervals during the night but we learned to adopt the noise in our sleep. Breakfast is marvellous with a...

My wife and I have stayed at Swann House twice, both for our wedding night and our first anniversary. On both occasions it's been a delight, with luxurious, unique rooms (we've tried two of the many available), a very friendly and hospitable staff, and a delicious breakfast. The common areas are also charming, beautiful and comfortable, and really everything about...

My son and I recently stayed at the Swann House for three nights--and it completely changed our minds about bed and breakfasts. Previous to this stay I had always cherished my complete privacy and anonymity while vacationing. However, the Swann House quickly and assuredly changed my mind about this on the very first day. The manger gave us excellent advice...

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...
