Farihah Sattar - DIT Solutions on Oct 18, 2017 said:

“Thank you so much for all your help and guidance. We really appreciate all you did for us. Our group enjoyed every minute spent in this beautiful mansion full of such amazing memories and history. ”


Champagne Tour Guest on Oct 9, 2017 said:

“Staff is very friendly and enthusiastic! Great for big and small groups, so much to see! ”


Champagne Tour Guest on Oct 8, 2017 said:

“Coming back to find more doors! ”


Richard Williams on Oct 8, 2017 said:

“Docent Tracy provided us a great tour, and even hinted ever so slightly which rooms might have hidden doors! ”


Robin Stinson on Oct 5, 2017 said:

“Thank you for offering this free concert. It was wonderful as was the entire O Street mansion experience! Bravo once again! ”


John Batdorf - Intimate Music Experience Guest on Oct 5, 2017 said:

“Wonderful evening in a fantastic place. The bartender was super friendly and made great drinks. ”


Tim Lorenz on Oct 4, 2017 said:

“I love this place and am considering donating my quirky collections of antique film gear, toys, and various & sundry odd-ball curiosities. ”


Alvin Stenzel on Oct 2, 2017 said:

“After the great 125th Anniversary Building Concert and Celebration, I went on YouTube and watched other performances by the artists. I was struck by the differences between the performances at O Street compared to their other performances, even the ones at the White House. The intimacy of the performances at O Street was worlds beyond what I saw on YouTube. The quality of the performances was not different, but the "feel" at O Street was so much more powerful. I think that speaks to many things about O Street, especially to the affection the artists have for H and Ted and the Mansion. I believe that when we talk about performances at O Street, that should always be mentioned . . . that an audience can almost assuredly expect to see aspects of the artists that they would not see in a larger, less personal venue. I love it at The Mansion and O Museum! ”


Nancy B on Oct 1, 2017 said:

“We had a great time - the grandkids were totally occupied looking for the secret doors and the adults enjoyed the champagne and hidden treasures! ”


Erica on Oct 1, 2017 said:

“I truly enjoyed my visit. The history, the tour guide, the staff...everything was like a magical mystery ride. Just fanciful. I absolutely loved looking at the all of the incredible items that decorate the property. There were some great finds in every nook and cranny. ”


Jim Nunally on Sep 28, 2017 said:

“We had to leave early on Thursday before anyone was up and about. As busy as we were I was unable to really enjoy the Mansion as much as I wish I could have. If I could have had another week I would have written at least one song inspired by your books H. Those insightful prose are inspiring. I especially liked the one I think was on page 62 or 63 about not being to blame for what happens to you as a child, that is a powerful message. Thank you for: Your caring Your kindness Your appreciation Your knowledge Your understanding Your support Your inspiration Your sharing Your open hearts For being yourselves. With love and appreciation. May the sun shine to brighten your days. ”


Mansion Tour Guest on Sep 26, 2017 said:

“We brought our two boys and they loved trying to find secret doors and clues. It was a great time for everyone! ”


Dan Foldes on Sep 23, 2017 said:

“We didn't get a proper goodbye with you, but I wanted to make sure to reach out and thank you for yours and H's hospitality with our group this week. Thank you SO much! We loved everything about the Mansion - the people, the decor, the secret doors, the music, the inspiration - and we can't wait to come back. ”


Jeff Streed on Sep 22, 2017 said:

“The museum is the best place we have visited in years. ”


Champagne Tour Guest on Sep 21, 2017 said:

“It was terrific. We enjoyed ourselves so much. How great to think that you have provided shelter to artists and rising artists and others such as Rosa Parks. Tremendous. We will be back. ”


Nell Robinson & Jim Nunally Band - Intimate Music Experience on Sep 20, 2017 said:

“Meeting Ted and seeing the Mansion!! Wow, combine it with music from Nell Robinson and it was just fantastic! Can't wait to see more concerts here! ”


Jeffrey Streed on Sep 17, 2017 said:

“Just amazing. We stayed two hours but could have stayed two more. It was rich and creative. We found 7 of 70 secret doors and felt pretty good about ourselves! And the idea of sharing the space with rooms for short and long term guests and artists is such a open and trusting. We will definitely be coming back and sending our friends too. Thanks for being there! ”


Helena Ferret on Sep 17, 2017 said:

“Excellent presentation by staff member. Plenty of time to explore. A fabulous outing! ”


Kim Eley on Sep 16, 2017 said:

“Thank you for being a beacon of creativity, wonder, imagination, fun and play-fulness! Such a delight sharing the wonders of The Mansion with friends and family. Love you! ”


Madeline on Sep 16, 2017 said:

“We had a great time! It was really fun searching for all the secret doors. Also, the person who explained the "rules" to us was really great. ”


Tom Beers on Sep 16, 2017 said:

“What a fantastic evening, the mansion was a perfect backdrop for my wife's prohibition-era themed 40th birthday party. The staff were so attentive, no detail was left unplanned. Our friends (and more importantly my wife) have raved about the evening. We will definitely be back and so will they! ”


Marni Coleman on Sep 14, 2017 said:

“A wonderful time once again! My 5-year-old talks about "secret doors" all the time now! ”


Aaron Copeland on Sep 14, 2017 said:

“You guys were wonderful. The planning of this retreat was very last minute for us. Your patience was truly appreciated. Everybody had a good time and the planned outcome was achieved. We look forward to being frequent visitors to the mansion. You probably hear this all the time; but, we had a Great Experience. ”


Stevie Combs on Sep 14, 2017 said:

“A great night of friends and music! The staff were extremely nice and helpful and Ted was the most gracious host! Thanks you O St Mansion! I will def be back! ”


Kathy Matlesky on Sep 14, 2017 said:

Champagne Tour Guest on Aug 28, 2017 said:

“This was a great Groupon find! We told our friends about it and they loved the idea as well. The volunteers are helpful and friendly. Thank you! ”


Debbi on Aug 28, 2017 said:

“We had a fantastic visit and plan to return again, soon! We have some out of town friends who will definitely be brought on a visit to the museum on their next visit. ”


Elizabeth Miller on Aug 28, 2017 said:

“I've been to the mansion several times with multiple groups. My guests did have a blast. I appreciated that there weren't too many ppl in the mansion. Just enough that I could mention here and there to someone leaving a room that I found a secret door in there and their face would light up and they would venture back to look harder. I will continue to bring guests to the mansion for many years. ”


Amanda Nave on Aug 22, 2017 said:

“It was super fun :) The champagne was awesome and the history of the place was super cool. You know a lot of memories were made there. ”


Jessica Maestas-Wilson on Aug 21, 2017 said:

“Awesome experience, definitely coming back and bringing the kids. ”


Don on Aug 19, 2017 said:

“The volunteers sharing stories about the house were delightful and informative. The house itself was an incredible experience: educational, mysterious, and fun. We loved our time there! ”


Gail Griffith on Aug 19, 2017 said:

“There's nothing quite like an evening at the Mansion. Wonderful vibe, great music and terrific hosts in H and Ted Spero. ”


Barrett Caldwell on Aug 17, 2017 said:

“A fantastic and intimate evening of great music, both very familiar and quite excitingly new. I have seen Esperanza twice before, and this is by far the most relaxed and "tuned in" that I have seen her, allowing me to appreciate what a profound talent she is. I had never heard Leni Stern before, but now I want to go and buy some / most (all?) of her albums. Of course, JD Souther's songs are iconic and pervasive, but his stories and his soul weaving them was a particular joy. Again, I had never heard Ida before, but her voice (and the spot-on accuracy of the duets with JD) was a true treat. ”


Carolyn Howell on Aug 17, 2017 said:

“The concert was a true phenomenon. In that intimate setting we were both entertained and transported away. Thank you to you and Ted. ”


Esperanza Spalding & JD Souther - Benefit Concert Guest on Aug 16, 2017 said:

“Amazing show, excellent performance. Excellent reception. Our first time there....but for sure not our last time! ”


Esperanza Spalding & JD Souther - Benefit Concert Guest on Aug 16, 2017 said:

“The performances were good. Esperanza was especially amazing, as was the woman who accompanied her. The acoustics sounded very good. Overall, a very fun night, and again, Esperanza was phenomenal. ”


Champagne Tour Guest on Aug 16, 2017 said:

“A super unique time and the staff is very friendly. ”


Esperanza Spalding & JD Souther - Benefit Concert Guest on Aug 16, 2017 said:

“One of the best concerts I have ever attended and a beautiful venue. Thank you. ”


Christopher Walker on Aug 16, 2017 said:

“Friendly staff, cozy setting, good acoustics, and outstanding performance! ”


Christopher Latterell on Aug 16, 2017 said:

“Inspired indeed! Both the setting and the artists were simply extraordinary! What we found so charming and intimate, was the way the people in the audience -- friends and personal business contacts of Ted & H -- made the setting and the overall night something never to be forgotten. Speaking with the artists, engaging and encapsulating their music, their storytelling in a way that made it feel like Home for EVERYBODY. A truly gorgeous and fluid evening of laughter, shared expression and WHoa... AMAZING treats, sweets and devilish chocolate!! Thank you Ted & H., it meant a lot to share such a moment with you and your tribe of artists and humans! ”


Self-Guided Tour Guest on Aug 15, 2017 said:

“Love it. So much fun! ”


Hotel Guest on Aug 15, 2017 said:

“I wanted to show this place to my kids. My wife and I wanted them to know that a place like yours is life, is culture, is knowledge, is peace! ”


Virginia Goodwin on Aug 14, 2017 said:

“Our visit to The O Mansion was a delightful experience. It was well worth the trip from Atlanta. The history of the Mansion, the amazing decor mixed with nostalgia, celebrity memorabilia, and the festive ambiance were unique and captivating. One visit can only provide a glimpse into a world reminiscent of T.S. Elliot's initial Invitation through the wardrobe. H provides a unique venue for authors, artists, collectors, musicians, brides and grooms and celebrants to enjoy those special moments in an unbelievably almost surreal "world". One visit is surely not enough. ”


Wedding Guests on Aug 14, 2017 said:

“Everything was fabulous! The staff did a wonderful job, it could not have gone better. All the guests were really impressed by the dessert room. ”


Greg - Julian Tours/ Disney on Aug 11, 2017 said:

“Thank you Ted, H, V, and the Mansion Staff - for your hospitality and service. ”


Espionage Scavenger Hunt Guest on Aug 10, 2017 said:

“An absolutely phenomenal and unique experience, I plan to come back! ”


Stephanie Ann Nagg on Aug 10, 2017 said:

“Loved walking through the mansion and finding secret doors! All of the decor was fun to look at as well. I hope to stay as a guest in the future. It was a pleasure talking to you H. ”


Teri on Aug 10, 2017 said:

“I was looking for something fun and different to do with my 86 year old mother and happened upon your Groupon ad. When I picked her up, all I told her was she had to wear walking shoes. She's an adventurous soul so she changed her shoes and we were off. On the metro, mom kept eyeing the map trying to figure out where we might end up but I wouldn't tell. On the short walk over from Dupont Circle she mentioned she hadn't been in the area in years but that we were near where her mother went to finishing school in the 1920s (the Colonial School for Girls). At the mansion, we were ushered to the bar to start our Champaign tour by H herself (what a lovely woman!). What an adventure we had! Every room and corridor was overflowing with creative charm. We had such fun talking about all the wonderful art, antiques, books, and knick-nacks. The crystal chandeliers were beautiful! Although we found only a few of the secret doors, the hunt brought out the sleuth in both of us. Thank you for a very special mother/daughter adventure day at the O Mansion. ”


Victoria on Aug 10, 2017 said:

“My husband and I had so much fun looking through each room and finding the hidden doors. We found about 9 of them so we want to come back another time soon and find more. The staff was informative and pleasant. Highly recommend this place and we will absolutely tell others of our experience. ”


Penthouse Tour Guest on Aug 1, 2017 said:

“H - you're a great entrepreneur. You've created a very unique experience for DC; would like to have the opportunity to donate some items in the future. ”


Sydney on Aug 1, 2017 said:

“A great experience for our first time! We came to celebrate our anniversary and it was a fun way to explore and work as a team and be surprised! We wish we could have had more hints or clues to find more doors - it was difficult but we found 8! Great, great experience! ”


Ashley Storm on Aug 1, 2017 said:

“We had a wonderful time! We loved how eclectic the mansion is and how each time it's different! Its a place that if you wait for a bit and return, it's entirely new! Would highly recommend. ”


Jennifer Ward on Aug 1, 2017 said:

“Will definitely be coming back. ”


Marie Gambino on Jul 27, 2017 said:

“A truly wonderful experience!! The best and most unique experience during our stay in DC! We will be back! ”


Mansion Tour Guest on Jul 25, 2017 said:

“Thank you! We truly enjoyed our visit! This has been one of our favorite experiences in D.C. so far. We took a Monuments by Moonlight tour last night on an Old Town Trolley. We were picked up by the driver at our hotel and we rode alone with him for a while. He asked us what we'd done and we told him about The Mansion. He hadn't heard of it before! He was interested and researched it on his phone while we were off at one of the monuments. By the end of the tour, he was recommending it to the whole bus! ”


Mara on Jul 24, 2017 said:

“I brought my kids to tour the mansion and we had a blast looking for secret doors! They loved it! ”


Sherif on Jul 24, 2017 said:

“It's a unique and intriguing place, full of mystery and quirky decor ranging from antique to modern, including a full log cabin. We had fun exploring and enjoyed looking for the secret doors. We found about 5 ... Would love to find some of the others. ”


Desiree on Jul 20, 2017 said:

Bill Eisnaugle on Jul 18, 2017 said:

“Amazing place. We had a fantastic time wondering around. Thank you for all the work that goes into a place like this. ”


Self-Guided Tour Guest on Jul 17, 2017 said:

“What an amazing imagination to create this wonderful place. Could have spent hours looking at vinyl or old Life Magazines (comics too). We took some really fun candids. Staff was friendly and informative. Enjoyed the bluegrass music. Met other interesting guests wandering. Love that all the items were for sale and many of the proceeds go to the foundation. We'd definitely come back and try the specific treasure hunts based on theme. We had a great afternoon! ”


Richard B. Rosenblatt on Jul 17, 2017 said:

“My wife and I had a very enjoyable time. Staff and owners/caretakers were very friendly and we had an enjoyable experience. Would definitely recommend and come back again. ”


Self Guided Tour Guest on Jul 15, 2017 said:

“I live in the city and I have visited the Mansion at least 6 times prior, and my last visit still felt like a mini vacay. I will continue to spread the word and bring more friends. ”


Hannah Hansen on Jul 12, 2017 said:

“Moved to DC a few months ago, and by far one of the best date night activities. Lack of crowds, exploration, and the feeling of being cut off from the outside world- so refreshing! I didn't think I would actually shop either... next time I really am bringing my shopping bags! ”


Emily Ball on Jul 10, 2017 said:

“Brought my boyfriend for his birthday and we absolutely loved it! Thank you so much for the lovely experience! We'll be back! ”


Chris Crooks on Jun 19, 2017 said:

“The Mansion on O was seriously one of the coolest places i have ever been. I have lived in Amsterdam, Paris, and Boston. I have travelled extensively and outside of the natural wonders of this world the Mansion is one of the coolest, fun experiences I have had. Highly recommend this place, will be my go to when people visit me in DC. ”


Champagne Tour Guest on Jun 19, 2017 said:

Bob Miller on Jun 19, 2017 said:

“That was a lot of fun ”


Ellie on Jun 7, 2017 said:

“We had a wonderful time exploring on our own! We will definitely pass along the word that this is "the" place to visit in DC, and plan on returning in the near future. Definitely a hidden treasure! Lucky us, we were able to have this experience. Thanks to all who had a part. ”


Sophana, International Finance Corporation on Jun 6, 2017 said:

“Stayed the night in the St. Andrew suite to celebrate a good friend's 50th birthday. Us 5 ladies had a fantastic time! Upon our arrival we were greeted by V who escorted us to our suite followed by a great tour of the Mansion. We wandered around the Mansion searching for hidden doors and looking at all of the unique and quirky items all of which are for sale! Thanks Mansion on O Street for a great experience! ”

Patty Rangel on May 26, 2017 said:

“A journey of the self where many memories were triggered..some good, some bad but inspiring spiritually in the lesson of "Letting Go". What a treasure of a creative space! My soul was able to breathe. My mind was inspired to create! ”


Kimberly K. Parker on May 26, 2017 said:

“We loved it! It was the best field trip I've had since beginning my career at the college. Thank you! ”


Dr. Robin Belamaric on May 23, 2017 said:

“O Street Mansion is mind-blowing Lu awesome! It reminded me of C.S. Lewis - meets - Willy Wonka! This is the place my childhood self always dreamed existed - and it does not disappoint. Getting to know H through her relaxed and welcoming hospitality was an equal delight! Kindness, wisdom, character strength, and beauty radiate through the Mansion's visionary founder and hostess. My family and I keep thinking of events that will bring us back...treasure hunt, sleepovers, birthday parties, fundraising dinners, corporate retreats, etc. I HIGHLY recommend this as a Must-See Washington Museum! ”


Champagne Tour Guest on May 23, 2017 said:

“We had a fantastic time! Such fun trying to discover all of the secret doors and exploring all of the memorabilia and art you have throughout the house. Thanks for a wonderful experience! ”


Eve Young on May 17, 2017 said:

Aimee LaMere on May 13, 2017 said:

“I travel quite a bit and this place was a great find! Relaxed and intriguing place! So much too see, surely come back to actually stay and find more then the three secret doors we found. Hours and hours of fun. We were even offered umbrellas to borrow because of the rain which we returned after a jog to a restaurant of their recommendation, which was amazing (Asia 54)! So generous and kind. Love love this mansion! A must visit! ”


Carrie Pritts on May 12, 2017 said:

“It was so fun! We found 5 of the hidden doors. It's the little things that prove quality and attention to detail. I definitely want to come back and try some of the other events. ”

Adrian Nesta on May 6, 2017 said:

“What an incredible experience! The venue was spectacular, I was lucky enough to come early enough to explore most of it and I still felt like there was so much I had yet to discover. Truly a 20th century music/pop culture wonderland. Additionally, all of the staff were very professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. As for the concert, it matched the energy of Mansion and was a moving performance by a talented artist. Made for an unforgettable Sunday evening!”


Kathy Dircks on May 4, 2017 said:

“Fantastic combination of museum and flea market ever with a glass of champagne and secret doors to find!! What's not to like?? Something for everyone. Not to mention it's a hotel that's definitely kind of quirky. Room after room hidden staircases!! What a find!!! ”


Champagne Tour Guest on Apr 29, 2017 said:

“Our Group had a great experience at the mansion. All of the staff was extremely generous and accommodating. The owners are a joy. We were able find 5 secret doors/ passages and the hidden wine cellar. Even if we had not, this place would still have been a pleasure. Its truly a unique experience and hidden treasure in DC. ”


Champagne Tour Guest on Apr 29, 2017 said:

“The tour was definitely a conversation starter. It made us curious and we perused the Mansion's website. We found more interesting information. My daughter next attended a concert and found out a lot more and kept texting me surprising factoids. We will certainly put The Mansion on O Street on our list of where to send friends and family for a bit of eccentric fun when they visit DC. ”


Kelli Ackiewicz on Apr 29, 2017 said:

“Loved it! Our students fell in love with your place. It is a true fun house for adults. So much to explore and see...and the history! They had a blast. I thought the pre-talk was excellent and really set the stage for the fun to come. Thank you for having us! ”


Laura on Apr 26, 2017 said:

“We had a great time, but next time we are bringing our curious sons, without them, we only found five of the hidden doors! ”


Mipso Concert Guest on Apr 26, 2017 said:

She had such a great time that now her teenage son and our mom want to visit to try and beat the 8 doors that she and I found! Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful building and all of its treasures! ”


Mansion Tour Guest on Apr 18, 2017 said:

“I am glad that I found out about your existence. We had a marvelous time exploring the mansion and trying to find the 70 hidden doors. We only managed to find 5. However, we enjoyed looking at the way you decorated the mansion. We hope to visit again in the near future. ”


Kathryn on Apr 18, 2017 said:

“It was cool to find various secret passageways and rooms. I like the theme rooms and some items that fit the theme. I loved the historical building itself and find that to be cool enough to explore. Will definitely come back with friends. This would be an amazing bachelor/bachelorette party location if you do such things. ”


Laura Cernansky on Apr 17, 2017 said:

“We had an amazing time at the Mansion on O Street. The owners and staff were friendly and knowledgeable. We were given an amazing tour of the house before going to our suite. The room was fantastic. I would definitely go back to the Mansion on O Street because it is truly a unique experience! ”


Susie Markland on Apr 16, 2017 said:

Alaina on Apr 12, 2017 said:

“My friend and I were not quite sure what to expect and the Mansion delivered the most unique experience! Our host - Vinayak - was a perfect gentleman and answered all our questions. Touring the mansion was our final stop on our few days in DC and it was the perfect send off. There is so much to see we can't wait to come back. Thanks again! ”


William Kinsman on Apr 10, 2017 said:

“I can't believe that a place like the O-street mansion exists. It seems like a hidden treasure and a must see of D.C.. The O-street mansions is one of the best places in D.C. to see the history and culture of the city encapsulated. Its incredible charm and unusual layout makes the experience of spending time in the hotel engrossing. I had such a great time on the tour searching for the rooms where certain musicians stayed or Looking for hidden doorways that I had to go through all the floor twice to make sure I did't miss everything! The hotel not only seems like it would be an incredibly fun place to stay but also it seemed like the staff - who were incredibly welcoming - managed to let people explore the hotel on their own without impinging on the privacy of those staying there. I also really admired how open and welcoming the mansion is with it's residency programs for artists and heroes which hosted Rosa Parks for many years as a resident! I! am really glad to have found out about the O street mansion. I only have praise for the staff and owners who have managed to create an incredibly unique experience that is welcoming to both those who wish to stay there and those who attend the museum tours or the events that are held there regularly. ”


Ann Beasley on Apr 3, 2017 said:

“We enjoyed our visit to the Mansion. We come to D.C. Each year for business And have seen most of the monuments and museums over time. This was something different and fun. First we were looking for treasure hunt items and admiring the Mansion. Then we were just looking for hidden doors. We were entertained for over 2 hours. ”


Guayi on Apr 3, 2017 said:

“Great place!!! We had a wonderful time. ”


Richard Arenberg on Apr 1, 2017 said:

Self Guided Tour Guest on Apr 1, 2017 said:

“We came in as a family; 2 adults and 2 pre-teen boys. It was hard to tell who enjoyed the experience more. The introduction was great before running off to explore! We appreciate the coat and bag check. Luckily we were able to uncover 7 different secret passageways/rooms. Overall, great experience! Would recommend. ”

“Mansion on O Street is one of my all time favorite destinations and places to bring people. Everyone I have introduced the Mansion to has loved it. From young kids to my mom. ”


Karen Cohen on Mar 27, 2017 said:

“The Rock and Roll Hunt tour was awesome, every room and niche is filled with memorabilia, not all rock and roll related but fascinating all the same. We were just amazed at the accumulation of noteworthy, silly, serious items, Janis Joplin's death certificate, guitars signed-we found the Springsteen one, dolls of all shapes and sizes, paintings, so much and ALL FOR SALE. I can't wait to go again! And I will bring all my visitors to this place, a DC landmark for sure. ”

I know there was a lot of changes and you hit every mark, from the food to the meeting space and private setting. You also helped me stay in budget. Our team had a very successful meeting and I can't thank you enough. ”


Champagne Tour Guest on Mar 20, 2017 said:

“A must-see place in DC! I lived in the metro DC area for more than 20 years, and I can't believe that I found out about this place only two weeks ago. My girlfriends and I visited the mansion during a girls day out. It was great fun. ”


Chris Starr on Mar 12, 2017 said:

“Brought my niece there for the self tour and glass of champagne. We so enjoyed roaming the house and the history. All the lightening was amazing to think it was all donated. The guest rooms were fun and quite special in their decorations. The thoughts of having events there seem special and fun!!! The hidden wine and dinning room was so great. I can see having a small special dinner in there for sure. It was also very informative to speak to you and your husband of the love and work that was put into the home. Will definitively pass along the tours to my friends to come and visit. Also a special thanks for letting us leave our car at your lot while we went off to have lunch. Thanks again for a fun couple of hours. ”

“My boys had a great time exploring the mansion. The experience was unique, fun and a little mysterious! We had a great time. ”


Self-Guided Tour Guest on Mar 2, 2017 said:

“Really fun to see this hidden museum of DC. Plus, it wasn't too crowded, which was a huge plus. Walking through as self-guided visitors was the way to experience this place. Being self-guided allowed you to spend more time in areas that interested you, and let you find hidden passages, rather than having them pointed out to you, which was more challenging and made it more interesting. I think it would also be fun to come visit at a private party/event. ”


Graciela & Leigh on Mar 1, 2017 said:

“What a wonderful find in DC! We had a wonderful time exploring and observing all the things this place has to offer. We wished we could have stayed there for longer than we did, and will definitely come back if we're back in the area! ”

Breakfast Tour Guest on Feb 28, 2017 said:

“The mansion is amazing, the staff are all gracious and attentive. The quality and presentation of the continental breakfast was good. Everyone had a great time and we look forward to many future visits. Patron comments - Great and unusual trip to a most interesting place. Truly enjoyed it. This trip was unique and informative. The knowledge that Rosa Parks lived there was new information for me. Wonderful! Spectacular - lovely. Different and tons of fun. Thank you! Really neat, unexpected experience. It was amazing. ”


Jon & Jennifer Worman on Feb 26, 2017 said:

“For so long we have heard wonderful things about the Mansion on O Street and we finally were able to experience it for ourselves. To say we absolutely enjoyed it would be an understatement! From our unique and eclectic room (Garden Room) to the impeccable and friendly service, the Mansion gave us limitless possibilities. 22 hidden doors, compartments, and passages we found during our stay! Can't wait to come back and find the rest. Thank you for a once in a lifetime experience, Mansion! ”

Christina McCurry on Feb 17, 2017 said:

“This was my first visit to the mansion and my expectations were more than met. After seeing the mansion on a TV show on travel channel I decided to check it out for myself. I brought my boyfriend with me and we had a magical day exploring the Mansion. It was fun to do something different for a change and explore a piece of history. We both love music and very much enjoyed all the different items in the mansion that showcase so much music history. We actually managed to find 5 hidden doors and were very proud of ourselves. We hope to return again and hope to one time stay the night at the magical mansion. Thank you so much. ”

Think it would be an amazing venue to host an event. Loved the Rosa Parks and John Lennon rooms. but my favorite was the log cabin and the secret wine cellar! ”

“Loved the experience. We had tons of fun exploring and discovering all of the hidden wonders and gems. Everyone we met and talked to were interesting, helpful and enjoyable to talk to. Wine cellar might have been our favorite location but it is truly hard to choose. We would have loved to go out on unoccupied balconies and additional glasses of champagne were very pricey. But other than that, the entire experience was wonderful! ”

“Vinayak was very helpful and fun giving us the "need to know" speech at the beginning of our self-guided tour. My friend and I found seven of the hidden passages, mostly because we heard other people exclaiming over them. It would be cool to visit on a quiet day when you can just explore and look for the passages. I'll have to go back and look at all the items lying around, as this visit was more focused on the excitement of the treasure-hunt aspect. Definitely a cool place. ”


Laura Ewan on Jan 31, 2017 said:

“It was fantastic. In addition to an experience and environment you just can't find anywhere else, the Mansion staff were welcoming, accommodating, and added to the fun of our New Member event. We will definitely be back for a larger event that our entire chapter can enjoy. ”


Irene Garcia on Jan 31, 2017 said:

“My husband and I visited the mansion for my husband's birthday. We had a great time doing the treasure hunt. I attended a party in the evening and recommended the mansion to everyone at the party as a place they must visit. When I arrived at work today, I told everyone I worked with to visit the mansion. It was surprising how many people have lived in the area for years and never visited the mansion. Visiting the mansion is a must do. It is on the top of my list of what I will recommend to people that visit DC. ”

There was so much to see and experience. I loved all the different bathrooms and mini kitchens.

You must be asked the same questions 100 X a day and yet your responses did not sound beaten down with repetitiveness but came out as sweet as the freshly baked cookies. I liked how I felt trusted to go around unsupervised and yet every so often there would be someone to attend to any question or need we had. I did not like that the cook told us where the secret door was. but we realize he was cooking up a storm. we had such a fun time finding them. I think we got 10. ”

I found myself smiling all throughout the tour. I would've stayed longer if I didn't have to move my car! The only thing that would've made the experience better is to have the option of an audio tour to learn more about each room. I read some of the card plaques but was too distracted by the rooms themselves and looking for the secret doors. I got a little history fix lounging in the second story of the log cabin watching the short TV clips about the Mansion. I get that part of the point is the mystery and secrecy...just a little difficult for a "nosey rosey" such as myself! ”

“Our event far surpassed our expectations . Unfortunately a number of our guests were late due to traffic , but the staff were wonderful waiting for them and were able to adjust the schedule , so we were all able to enjoy a tour of the mansion , before sitting down to tea . And the tea ! Each course was more delicious than the preceding one. We just loved the presentation ... using different stations . This of course gave us the opportunity to move around and talk to each other which was just what we wanted . We were truly amazed when we saw the cake stands with the chocolate Capitol buildings , WOW . The cakes themselves were absolutely delicious, hard to choose a favourite. I had originally thought that we would be confined to one dining area so it came as a wonderful surprise to realise we would have a reception area , as well as the food stations , and a beautiful dining area, with a fantastically presented table . I know Roger had planned on coming down to meet with you again , but our time has not been our own with a lot of friends and family invites . So he plans on sending you his thoughts as soon as we are back in the UK. Thank you once again for making our event so memorable and special , Margaret ”

We gave them your information to let them know who help us plan the event. We really told them that all we did was make the call and you pretty much handled everything else! So we were allowed to be guests and enjoy the event too. That was really outstanding! You will probably get some calls soon.

When you check in you don't only get a key and code to the door but more importantly you immediately adopted into the Mansion family. My stay was the most relaxing stay I have ever had in any hotel and the most inspiring. Climbing the stairs to my room the "5th Dimension" was like taking a stairway to heaven. ? ”

We only found about 5 main secret passage ways (the bartender stated there were possibly 60) so i was expecting to find more. The only other downside is that we didn't get to see all of the rooms since guests were staying there but i guess this means we'll just have to come back. Thank you for the great experience!! ? ”

“Thank you, Ms. H and Ted for a truly memorable and magnificent experience. Last night was everything I could possibly have hoped for. Alto did a wonderful job on the tour and our chef was perfection. My most important guest said it was the best meal she had ever had. That could be an exaggeration, based on the overall experience, but I agree, it was an incomparable meal. ”

Sharon Treacy-Dunne —CEO Cross Border Orchestra of Ireland on Apr 1, 2016 said:

“We have just about come back down to earth after our whirlwind visit to Washington D.C. The entire experience was like a dream, beginning with our stay at the stunning Mansion on O Street which set the scene for what was truly the trip of a lifetime for our young musicians. The Mansion is simply the most amazing, unique and gorgeous hotel on earth; full of fascinating curiosities, with all the rooms so exquisitely decorated, we felt like royalty! Since we came home, the Mansion has been a real talking point, with everyone fascinated to know what made it so different and special. Thank goodness we had photos and videos! For us, it was a combination of Alison in Wonderland captivation and Louis X1V elegance, luxury and style; coupled with the warmth of your welcome and personable approach, that made staying there such a wonderful and memorable experience. Thank you for allowing us to have such an ideal space to rehearse in - this was essential for us in our final preparations for performing at the White House. Finally, a huge thank you for the very generous rate which made the entire trip possible. Sincere thanks and best wishes until the next time, Sharon and CBOI ”


Mike B. — Briteskies on Mar 31, 2016 said:

“Thanks to you and your team, we had a wonderful retreat and experience in Washington for our group. From the special rooms, dinner, having Jessie Jackson at breakfast, Capitol Hill experience, and finally a tour with the FBI, you made everything wonderful. I believe that the groups favorite event was sitting with you and listening to the demo recordings. We appreciate you sharing that experience with us.”


Kelly, Bill on Mar 29, 2016 said:

“The Mansion on O is a Wonderland of visual and aural surprise and delight. In your wildest dreams, you have not imagined surroundings so eclectic, comfortable, lush, humorous, and over-the-top -- all of it at once homey and grand. It's a magic trick. It's a living museum. It's immersive theater in which the guest is the actor and the entire mansion is the stage. The Mansion and its lovable inhabitants embrace people, creativity, and community. I am already counting the friends to whom I will recommend it as a travel destination. ? ”


Brett, Michelle on Mar 27, 2016 said:

“The hotel itself is amazing and beautiful! But the kindness and welcoming manner of the staff made it an even more amazing experience.

Vollmer, Kristina on Mar 20, 2016 said:

“It was a lot of fun and took every bit of 2 hrs. We only saw 6 secret doors out of a possible 60-70 so we were very disappointed.

Bristow, Jennifer on Mar 19, 2016 said:

“Absolutely loved everything! The house(s) are amazing, a radical departure from anywhere I've ever stayed. The bed in the Fireplace room was like being at home, I slept incredibly well.

I will recommend to everyone I know! ? ”

Anderson, Donna on Feb 11, 2016 said:

“Janis Joplin would have loved this weird and whimsical house. It seemed like a cross between a hoarder's flea market, a Bates Hotel on Route 66, a Rock & Roll hangout, a luxury party venue, and a spy fantasy of hidden passageways thrown in for good measure. I couldn't get over how clean it was considering how packed it was with huge chandeliers, books, and stuff everywhere. The rooms looked comfortable and like a fun place to stay with family. I give it 5 stars for it's uniqueness. ? ”


Larue, Florence on Feb 9, 2016 said:

“WOW!!! Words cannot describe how much I enjoyed my visit to the mansion!!! My only regret is that I could not stay longer!!

We came with our 22 year old son who said it was the highlight of our trip to Washington. He said everyone knows about the monuments and museum but this is a well kept secret. We brought our friend who has lived in DC for 4 years and he had never heard of it! Loved that the staff shared their passion about this very cool place! Will definetely pass this travel tip along!! Next time i want to stay in the hotel and swim in your gorgeous pool! ? ”

Skeens, (Mrs.) Karen on Jan 3, 2016 said:

“My first visit to the Mansion was for a corporate function in early in December. What a treat and I immediately thought of several people I knew would love a trip to the Mansion. I was absolutely delighted to find oyster plates on my first trip and gave them as Christmas gifts. On January 2nd, I shared this treasure with my husband and our close friends from Radford, VA. We spent several wonderful hours wandering through the rooms to see all the Mansion has to offer. My husband particularly enjoyed searching for and finding many of the secret doors! Many of our conversations began with I remember... or remember when! We have several other friends and relatives who will enjoy a trip to the Mansion. Thank you for a great way to begin the New Year! -- Karen Skeens ? ”

Siart Self-Guided Champagne Tour guest on Dec 31, 2015 said:

“I've been wanting to visit the O Street Mansion since I first heard about it a couple of years ago but just hadn't found time to go visit and also wasn't totally sure how interesting it would actually be. This year, for Christmas, I decided to get tickets for me and my family as a Christmas present (we did the self guided champagne tour). We had a BLAST looking through all the rooms, getting lost in the twists and turns of the house, and finding secret doors (we found 10 of the 70 in the house)! We were there for two hours exploring the house and definitely would have stayed longer if it wasn't closing. Also, everything in the Mansion can be purchased and my mom and sister found some interesting items that they ended up buying and taking home. We had so much fun and will definitely be back to find those other 60 secret doors :) We are also planning on returning to celebrate for New Year's Eve. If you are looking for a fun outing in DC that is not museum or monument based I would definitely recommend checking out the O Street Mansion! ? ”


Biles Self-Guided Tour guest on Dec 29, 2015 said:

“We had a great time. My kids had never been to the mansion before and they thought it was very cool. Hard to impress teenagers but you did! Love finding the hidden passageways and rooms. I tried to buy some chairs but they were sold, It is awesome that your inventory really moves. I will come back again soon to look around. The only suggestion I would make is When getting people started on their tour, self guided or other, tell them that when they find a hidden door (mirror or book case..) to close it quickly so it does not give it away for others looking. ? ”


Castonguay, Pascale on Dec 29, 2015 said:

“Really original concept. We appreciated our visit even tough we clearly should have plan to stay longer (we were not able to visit the whole mansion, but we wish we could have). It was a great experience! ? ”


Womack, (Mr.) John on Dec 29, 2015 said:

“We had a wonderful time. The whole place was very cool, and we had a blast hunting down secret doors while we sipped on champagne. We are already talking about coming back, but this time we want to stay there! ? ”


Etzkin, Lena on Dec 28, 2015 said:

“This was simply a magical place! It's truly a hidden gem. Or rather, gem upon gem upon gem! The food was fabulous and fresh and we felt so welcome from the moment we arrived. The valet knew who we we were and congratulated us on our engagement. I was continually amazed the entire day and we can't think of a better place for our wedding. Now we need to figure out logistics in the next week or 2 before we pick a date. But this place is everything I could have possibly wished for , and MORE! ? ”


Polanz Self-Guided Tour guest on Dec 27, 2015 said:

“It is one of my favorite place on earth! I travel the world and really, there is NOTHING like this mansion! I had a chance to meet the owners and tell them in person how grateful I am to be able to visit such a wonderful place. It is magical, inspiring, crazy, funny....I never get tired of going there. The staff is extremely generous and friendly. I mean how many mansions do you know that you can walk in any day?? I spent usually 3 to 4 hours marveling at the rooms and objects. So far, 10 secret passages found, but there are 70! I do always buy objects since I fully support their art program, read more about it! Artists live there! thank you thank you so much for making a secret mansion dream of mine come true!!!!!!!!Doe ? ”


Liu, (Ms.) Christine on Dec 25, 2015 said:

What a treasure. We will be back and will continue to support the O Mansion. Thank you. Chief Judge Covette Rooney OSHRC ? ”


Crenshaw, Cynthia on Dec 10, 2015 said:

“I had been planning this milestone birthday dinner party at the Mansion for months. From day one to the actual event, the entire process was smooth and painless. I was so nervous and anxious about the details as the date approached but my event planner Sally, was beyond patient and supportive. We had a dinner party in the wine cellar. The food was exquisite! The service exceeded my expectation! The mansion itself is such of an unique place with many different and interesting activities. My quests were beyond impressed . My event supervisor( Rogelio),and personal server(Astrid), were beyond attentive and made sure we lacked or wanted for nothing. I have nothing but great things to say about the entire experience and would highly recommended this venue for your next event be it something casual to an elegant dinner as I had. Will definitely come back to The Mansion on O street. Thank you for making my Birthday celebration unforgettable. ? ”

I certainly will return to The Mansion - an unforgettable place.Happy holidays and warmest regardsUlrike Bergner ? ”


T. Bruce on Dec 7, 2015 said:

“On behalf of everyone at Tempus Inc. I would like to say thank you for a wonderful night! We received great feedback from our guests both at the event and in our office today. Our guests were mesmerized by each object and secret passage way they could find in the Mansion. The food was phenomenal and I can certainly see why your pastry chef is one of the top 10 in the country :). I would also like to commend our event supervisor and his staff. I unfortunately did not get his card so forgive me for misspelling his name! Rogelio was an absolute delight to work with. He went above and beyond his call of duty and from observing the way he interacted with me, his staff, and our guests I can tell that he is a great leader. I wanted to arrive early for our event but wasn't able to due to traffic and unforeseen circumstances. Once I arrived (15 minutes prior to our guests arriving), Rogelio found me and we went through some last minute changes I wanted for our event. Instead of being flustered by the changes, Rogelio sprang into action and directed the staff to assist with our needs. Throughout the night he would check in on me to make sure our guests had everything we needed. He was vigilant and acutely aware of everything about our event and he even offered suggestions to make our night better ( Such as the location of our photo booth, moving our podium etc). Even though I only worked with him briefly, I can tell he has great character, amazing work ethic, and embodies the brand of the Mansion brilliantly. My boss, the General Counsel of our company, loved working with him as well. I would also like to thank Sally, the director of catering, H, and Ted for working with us as well. This was my first time planning a Holiday Party for our company and each one of them helped me throughout the process. I would love to thank them for their patience, answering my questions, and offering suggestions as well! The mansion has now become my go to place to show guests around when they come to DC. ”

“The experience was better than what I imagined. From the greeting at the front door to us being walked over the bar for our champagne. We explored every floor and loved all the different themes that went throughout the mansion. There were hotel guests there so there were some restrictions about which rooms can or can't be entered. Other than that we enjoyed the experience and the secret rooms. ? ”

You all did an amazing job setting up the space just as we wanted it, the food was plentiful and delicious, the bar was well stocked and your bartender a super nice guy, the staff was gracious and patient with our (by the end of the evening!) inebriated guests... In sum, we could not have asked for a more special evening. Also, you were all so accommodating with allowing us to spill into the entire first floor, I know the kids loved the extra space to run around in, and also with allowing us to drop our flowers off at the Mansion and assemble our centerpieces there. Thank you again. Thank you so much for making our wedding so memorable and stress free! We hope to be back soon! ? ”

Their French chef described everything on the menu and how it was being prepared. They were also able to accommodate our vegetarian guest. It was a lovely experience and I will definitely go back. A+ food, service, and venue!! ? ”

“Everything about the Mansion was wonderful. It's a truly unique venue for any kind of event. We loved it so much, we will go back again and again and again.

The moment you enter the Mansion, you feel like you're part of the family!!! I'd HIGHLY recommend using the Mansion for a meeting, special occasion - or go, just for fun and see if you can find all of the hidden doors. Also a great place to find one of a kind gifts for that special someone!!!!! I'd give it 10 stars if it was an option!!! * * * * * * * * * * ? ”

“The museum tour was phenominal!!!! The Gwendolyn Britt Senior Activity Center participants thoroughly enjoyed the visit! We searched and found the secret doors, which was a lot of fun. We explored the many bedrooms labeled by celebrities and they were simply beautiful! The items donated were all very interesting and many unique! The staff was very friendly and helpful! Our assigned informant, Veronica, was extraordinary in her delivery of information about the museum. She greeted us with a smile that made us feel very special and cared for! We conversated on the bus as we returned to the Center that we will bring our families and share with our friends the wealth of possessions and interest held in the museum! Thank you and we wish you continued success! ? ”

“I love that we found something unusual to do in dc since we have done all the tourist things for years. Feels like we found a gem hidden in the city. We only found 3 of the hidden passage ways so I guess being a spy is not in our future. Might be nice to provide some clues to guest who would like a little help finding them. Thanks ? ”

“To future visitors: Entrance is access to the entire hotel; passages to kitchens, hidden door to wine cellars, hidden doors to the penthouse suites, etc. You need to look for the hidden doors as you traverse all of the 4 floors and basement of this expansive building. While walking you will get lost and start to look at all the antiques and other eclectic items that are all both on display and for sale. ? ”


Georgia, Theresa on Jun 22, 2015 said:

“An SRO evening at the Mansion on O is to feel the weight of the world lift and a door to the universe of possibilities open wide - like being on the inside of a dazzling snow globe, while beautiful music swirls and floats through the air, finally settling into your soul.The Mansion on O is magnificent. The Mansion on O with Chris Berardo and the DesBerardos in the house is an evening of pure joy. Thank you all. ? ”

“We just had our wedding at the Mansion and it was an absolutely wonderful experience! It was like a fairy tale. Our guests loved the decor and the food, and of course the chance to explore the Mansion on their own for a little while! We found out after the fact that the Mansion was also hosting another wedding on the same day, and we never would have known, because the service was impeccable and the waitstaff were so responsive. They took care of every request we had, and were even able to make wonderful accommodations for several disabled guests. I would recommend the Mansion as an event venue to anyone who is willing to let go a little and allow the event planning staff to work their magic. They definitely know what they're doing! We stayed two nights in the Octagon Room, and really enjoyed the funky bathroom fixtures. The tub was pretty sweet! ”


Morgan Self-Guided Tour guest on Jun 7, 2015 said:

Scott Tait on Jun 4, 2015 said:

“Thank you again for creating a truly magical place. The Mansion is an oasis of love, creativity and challenge (in the best sense of the word) that is unparalleled. The look on my 5 year old daughter's face as she explored the music, art, food and architecture was wonderful. Seeing her cognitive dissonance as she wrestled with your answer to her question "why are there secret doors?" (you answered: "why shouldn't there be?") was both fantastic and more enduring than you might know - she has since answered every question with "well, why shouldn't there be?". I hope that question will permeate the rest of her life and I owe you the tuition of an ivy league college for it.”


Linda Faberman from Marriot International, on Jun 1, 2015 said:

Todd, (Mr.) Dwayne on Apr 24, 2015 said:

“Andreas and Darling were exceptional hosts. It was my wife and I's first time at the mansion, and it was one to remember. No question was silly. Our access in and out was easy. I felt vey secure. At one point I lost my wife in the building, and the staff actually helped me find her! They did everything to make us feel at home and comfortable. My room was very clean, and fully stocked with linens. If I had to find anything, perhaps the hot tub wasn't very hot.. Tho it was so cool to use, who cares! I haven't stopped talking about it to my friends since I went, and I will definitely return. Our room was the Garden Room, tho it seemed like we rented the whole place. We wandered around all night, and no one bothered us. Priceless experience. And the artist, Tom Constanten was great. He received us as friends, talked with us candidly. I just have nothing to compare it to! I hope you continue to get great music. Cheers! - Dwayne Todd ? ”


Kane, (Mrs.) Leigh on Apr 23, 2015 said:

“My daughter and I had a blast. Thoroughly enjoyed the music and a cocktail while we poked around the mansion. There is so much to see that we plan on a return visit. Our only regret is that we didn't find more secret passages. But we look forward to exploring the mansion again in the future. ? ”


Miles, (Ms.) Toni-Lynn on Apr 15, 2015 said:

“Lots of fun - SOOOO much to see! We kept forgetting to look for the secret doors because we were distracted looking at all of the cool items. We did find more than dozen once we knew that not all were "doors" in the strictest sense. Log cabin was our favorite guest room, and the wine 'cellar' was our favorite room. (we recommend visiting early to have the best chance of having the most guest rooms available to view!) Found several great books to purchase. Looking forward to returning - finding more doors and finding more books! Thank you for a wonderful creative time. ? ”


Basore Self-Guided Tour guest on Apr 15, 2015 said:

Appel, Donna on Apr 13, 2015 said:

“I thought the food was good, the service and staff were excellent and the mansion was out of this world crazy good. I can't wait to come back. I didn't even get a chance to explore 3/4 of what you have. It is an amazing place that anyone could visit and walk away with lots to share. What a hidden treasure this is. A real gem. Thank you for sharing it with me. All the best, Donna ? ”


Folliet, (Ms.) Anne on Apr 7, 2015 said:

Steele, Norma on Apr 6, 2015 said:

“Everyone in our party had a spectacular experience....I wish I could have afforded a treasure hunt for the kids - but it was just over my pocket book.. The food was wonderful - drinks & service superb - when friends visit from out of state, I definitely intend to have them visit "O" Mansion. Menu items were not to be believed, the variety, quality and quantity met everyone's expectations of a gracious and super tasty affair! Thanks so much - Best, Kim Steele ? ”

The show was wonderful, however, my self guided tour and search for the hidden doors was even more wonderful. I found 3 of the 70 doors and had to ditch my Treasure Hunt due as there was so much to see. I even met a new friend on my adventure. Thank you for providing such a great experience. ? ”

Paul and Michele Nathanson on Jan 1, 2015 said:

“The Mansion was the perfect, unique venue for our daughter Rachel's Bat Mitzvah. Rachel and her friends had a wonderful time exploring the Mansion and dancing and playing games with the DJ. The adults were amazed not only by the decor of the Mansion, but by the fabulous food and desserts. The Mansion staff could not have been more accommodating and were great to work with throughout the planning process. Our immediate family stayed at the Mansion for the Bat Mitzvah and it was a weekend that we will all remember forever. I strongly recommend the Mansion to anyone who is looking for something different than a hotel or country club ball room for their child's Bar or Bat Mitzvah.”

The brunch was beautifully presented and displayed with an abundance of breakfast and lunch choices. We had members of our party who played in the jam, which sounded awesome! Great bunch of talented musicians ~ it was wonderful to hear. Meanwhile the rest of us got to tour the mansion. I never get tired of seeing all the treasures. It leaves quite an impression. Thanks for all the care and love you show to art and artists ~ we will definitely be back! Have a wonderful New Year! ? ”

The holiday decorations are wonderful, the food delicious and the unique interior design and decor are marvelous. The owners are lovely people, both hospitable and personable.

“Mansion on O Street is one of those Washington DC "Gems" which makes you scratch your head and say, "Why did it take me so long to discover this magical Mansion." With over 100 rooms....only found 67 and the 70 secret doors .... only found 8 makes you want to return. Add the Showstoppers Drag Show and you have an evening of fun and laughter.... Bravo! ? ”

Ou, Christina on Dec 15, 2014 said:

“The baby shower I had planned was an amazing experience. Everyone was so helpful in making this special day the best. After we had set up in the room we were assigned, the event coordinator felt it was too cramped for everyone we had and they seamlessly moved us to a bigger room and allowed us to stay for a longer time to make up for that move. They continuously checked in on us and made sure everything was running smoothly. I definitely felt they went above and beyond and everyone had such an amazing time and I'm sure many people who came to the event will definitely be back to visits again! ? ”

My wife and I celebrated Thanksgiving Day 2014 at the O and felt as though we were celebrating the holiday with family and friends. The warmth and welcoming atmosphere created by Ted and H, and the entire O staff, made our holiday one to remember for the ages. Our waitperson, Germain, was especially wonderful, as he was both friendly and personable, while at the same time being attentive and professional. Many thanks to Ted, H and everyone at the O. We'll be back soon! Cheers, John & Erin Caslione ? ”

Mr. Hayes checked in with us and gave my guests a lovely introduction and welcome to the Mansion. Needless to say, they marveled at the surroundings and explored the beautiful rooms. It always has been (perfect) for my events and this was no exception! I look forward to seeing you soon.? ”

I'll definitely have to come again. ? ”

Culbertson, (Ms.) Elizabeth on Oct 24, 2014 said:

“I had the pleasure of seeing The Jayhawks here for the first time. It was an amazing show! The room was intimate and cozy, and there were just enough seats. The sound was great, and we got to meet the band after the show. It felt very personal, and the owners of O Mansion were there as well, which was so nice. This is a very special place to see a show! My only wish was that The Jayhawks had played longer! ? ”


Hughes, (Mr.) Mark on Oct 24, 2014 said:

Prior to our event in the preparation stage, we were a pretty demanding group with all of our changes and requests, and not once did the staff there let that interfere with their professionalism and quick response. During the event itself, they took their expertise to a whole new level. Andres received rave reviews from the attendees at our reception, as well as the entire staff the night of the event. I have been asked to ensure we use this venue again for future meeting requests. A big THANKS to everyone at the Mansion O for making our event an experience to remember and talk about!

Michal Conger on Oct 7, 2014 said:

“I went to the mansion for the second time for Mustache Monday, which was a hilarious adventure. My first scavenger hunt here was fun, but the addition of mustaches, drinks and food made this one even better. I can't think of many more fun things to do on a Monday after work than discovering a secret room behind a bookcase while wearing a mustache that makes me feel like I'm in a cartoon detective show.The rooms have the best themes, too. There's a John Lennon room, a cabin room, a safari room, a billiards bar... we found new rooms this time and probably will never find them all.We also heard some fun history on the house itself, and found some old books and antiques. Almost everything in the house is for sale, so if you like antiquing, you can multitask. ;) My friend brought home a book, and I was tempted by several pieces of beautiful china.We'll definitely be back, especially for another mustache Monday! ? ”


Eric Safern on Oct 7, 2014 said:

“I stayed here last week, and will be staying again this week.I was very excited about my visit, based on what I'd heard - but the place exceeded my expectations.Imagine the quirkiest bed-and-breakfast you've ever seen - filled with weird and interesting furniture and objects, with classic rock playing in every room - Beatles, stones, paul simon, etc. etc. According to the owner, some of the music is unreleased demo and outtake tapes from their archives.If you're looking for the polished 4 star hotel experience - professional and swanky but a bit sterile - try the Marriott or the Westin instead. If you're looking for something a bit different, but still feels like a hotel - try a Kimpton. If you want something unique and non-corporate, try the Mansion, You'll feel more like a guest of your slightly batty aunt than a corporate drone looking for a quiet night's sleep... Everything is a bit different, right down to the plumbing, which was, for me, a really great deep soaking whirlpool tub and a fantastic shower housed in a telephone booth with six separate powerful jets. ? ”

Fuller Self-Guided Tour guest on Sep 2, 2014 said:

“Such a gem in DC! The mansion is so unique and is a great getaway from the typical hustle-and-bustle of the Smithsonian museums, national monuments, etc. We found several hidden doors but I must admit I was expecting a bit more (apparently if you find two you are already "above average"), but who knows--a return visit might reveal completely new portions of the house! ? ”

Inyang, (Mr.) Adam on Aug 26, 2014 said:

“It's extremely difficult to find anything wrong with The Mansion. I love the attention Ted pays to the guests. I also like the humility of the proprietors; they still take a very active part in the day-to-day operations of the business. The Mansion itself is a self-admitted wonder that needs no further glorification. It's frickin amazing. I'll be back several more times until i find at least 50 of those secret doors, and i'm bringing friends and family with me each time. ? ”


Ahern, Kelley on Aug 21, 2014 said:

“What a unique, happy, creative place! We had a great time! Yes, the Mansion on O is filled with one of a kind items and secret doors but (for me) it is mainly about gracious, inclusive people who invite you into their world and make you feel like one of their own. Trust me - you want to be included!! ? ”
