This is an old set of row houses turned into a hotel. The rooms are all very different ranging in ones with sitting areas, others that are literally the size of the bed, and others that have communal bathrooms. Everywhere there is art. It is almost like an eclectic art museum with everything from a manikin in a tub to... More

This review is a little late. We stayed there at the beginning of February for our son's wedding. The hotel is in a great location - right off of Dupont Circle, so it is very close to the metro station and easy walking distance to restaurants. The hotel has a sense of history, and therefore has its little quirks. Every... More

Great atmosphere and patio, but sparrows are flying Everywhere, on the tables, picking at napkins. Maybe cute for some but repulsive to others....French toasts were very good but I ordered a smoked salmon and goat cheese omelet and it was blend. I am not a big fan of salt but that had absolutely no flavor. The goat cheese tasted spoiled... More

Well it look quaint on the internet, but the cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired. We were there for a number of days and complained about roaches in the bathroom twice. Little did I know until I was home that I was informed that the living area was also a problem. Many times the room was not dusted and... More

Older hotel that has a real sense of history. We stayed in room with a shared bathroom. It was clean, comfortable and good value and we would recommend this hotel. We also ate at the restaurant as well and it is a little expensive it is worth it.

This is a great hotel with fab food and wine. End of. The rooms are in the french countryside style circa 1900 but with all mod cons EXCEPT Tv and mini bar. Frankly i have no need for either. I drink in the bar and get news and entrainment on my wifi enabled device. I'm sure I could cook up... More

We stayed 7 nights at the Tabard Inn based on other reviews on Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. Remember that this Inn is located in 3 townhouses which have been connected and restored. The antique furnishing, wooden floors in the rooms and decor take you back in time. There is wifi in the Inn but not a television in... More

I've stayed four times at the Tabard and have been glad I did every time. The place is a gem - fabulous location, rooms at a range of price points that are all good choices, and mainly it's just the atmosphere that wins me over - the old wood-paneled lounge with a wood fire going every night (in the cold...

We love the Tabard! it's in Dupont Circle, a terrific liveable neighborhood; the Luna Cafe around the corner on Connecticut is a neighborhood joint, delicious & cheap. The rooms are very variable. Some seem like great deals, others are tiny, others are expensive given the hotel's drawbacks. (Yes, it's eccentric and quirky, sound sometimes travels between rooms, the first floor... More

Imagine my surprise when I got home and checked my email, only to find an alert from my bank....I was nearing the balance that would activate my overcharge protection. Hmmmm. There it was....two charges from Tabard Inn. One when we arrived, and one when we left. Apparently, the person behind the desk re-swiped our card, when it was not necessary;... More
