The Mansion On O Street: Washington DC’s Interesting Boutique Hotel - Updated 2023

When trying to find words to describe this Washington DC boutique hotel, the word “unique” doesn’t come close. How else could you describe a hotel that provides lodging, a museum, bed and breakfast, weddings, onsite-tours, corporate retreats, parties and more; in a property made up of five interconnected, upscale townhomes, in trendy Dupont Circle? To make the Mansion on O Street even more off-the-charts of describable, virtually everything inside is for sale! With over 100 rooms and seventy secret doors, this is great place to come and get lost for a while, and maybe go home with a souvenir?

Music in the air

Suites vary from a one bedroom, two, three, four bedroom, or up to a seven bedroom suite. Pets are welcome-with permission, and many guests come for extended stays. With several kitchens, laundry, outdoor pool, and pool table room, it is easy to while away your time enjoying thousands of rare “out-take” songs playing in most parts of the mansion. Other amenities and highlights are: Gibson guitars to play, allergen free linens and pillows available, down pillows and comforters available, Gilcrest & Soames bath and body products, and over 30,000 books! If you are driving, valet service is available for 30 USD per car, per night.

A log cabin too?

Want a bit of country in your stay? Try the Log Cabin room featuring a rustic look in a two-level suite. A four poster, timber-frame bed has an aquarium behind it and Remington bronze sculptures add authenticity to the western theme. The bathroom has copper topped washbasins with hand painted tulip sinks, a hot tub, sauna, hot shower, spa, rain forest, and bidet. The Log Cabin room also comes with a full kitchen, plasma TV downstairs, and a big screen TV upstairs. This two bedroom paradise rents for 1,250 USD per night for those wanting a country escape in DC.

So many themed suites

If you are looking for a historical stay, reserve the Rosa Parks room where the famous figure of the Civil Rights Movement stayed while in DC on several occasions. The Safari room awaits those with an African theme in mind with an abundance of art and animal print designs to create an on-safari room. The Lennon Room plays only John Lennon music and inspires guests to imagine a perfect world.

The Presidential suite has two bedrooms; one featuring a king size bed and the other a queen bed. This special suite has a teak whirlpool bath with a separate shower. One of the bathrooms is so special a famous jazz musician had dinner in it! I won’t spoil the surprise of who this famous musician was; you will just have to come and see for yourself. With eleven rooms and twenty-three suites, you will find one that suits your fancy. Maybe even a suite so special you will want to have dinner in the bathroom?

Guests are encouraged to wander the property to explore the art, artifacts, and music memorabilia throughout the property-except occupied guest rooms. One room has only Beatles music where you might hear the fab four singing a familiar song or a song rarely heard. Guitars are all over the mansion, and most have autographs of famous musicians. Your visit might even coincide with a rock star staying here since many come and go on a regular basis.
