This peculiar hotel should actually be classified as an in city B& B. It is beautifully located near Dupont Circle, and is created by the joining of two former row houses.We requested an in suite bathroom, ( there are some rooms with shared bathrooms).The first room we were assigned, had a tub,sink and toilet, a step up from the bedroom...

This a strange hotel, with multiple stairways to dark rooms in various nooks and crannies; at least on bedroom painted in black with a painting of a woman whose eyes follow the viewer; a scantily clad mannequin in a turban poised in a bathtub outside a room with a sliding door with a white fox sandwich board looking on; deeply...

Not your high rise hotel. Boutique and friendly. Pleased to find live music in the "drawing room" in the evening to be enjoyed with a fine selection of wine and drinks from the bar. No sneaking around since nearly every step on stairs or in our room creaked, but oh so charming in an old world kind of way. Very... More

Got a reservation so we skipped the usual 1 hour wait for brunch, though it would've been worth waiting for (and I will walk across a city to find a meal if it means no waiting). Everything was delicious, from the coffee to the fresh baked doughnuts to the eggs. The only complaint was that as an old building, there... More

I lived in DC for a long time and always admired this hotel. Great food in a cozy, slightly quirky atmosphere. Brunch and hot, buttered rum are highly recommended. We went for the cheapest option: shared bathroom. We got a tiny, cozy room with just enough space, a view of the beautiful street, and got the bathroom to ourselves because... More

The first time my Bf and I went to DC 3 years ago we came to have breakfast at the Tabard inn after reading tons of reviews of how it was the "breakfast/brunch" spot of DC. The reviews didn't lie, what they didn't mention was how quaint and magical the inn was. So there during our breakfast we decided next... More

My former colleagues and I keep coming back to this Victorian style hotel near Dupont Circle whenever we are in DC. The rooms are all individually furnished and although they could do with renovation they are still charming. The choice and quality of continental breakfasts included in the price is great.

My wife and I stayed for two nights over the Valentine's Day weekend. This was our 3rd time to stay at The Tabard. Each time we have stayed in a different room, and each time the decor was very different. We love the history of this Inn, and we love that the ambiance is that of walking into a different... More

We've stayed at the Tabard Inn several times and were there recently again in February. We love the quaintness of this hotel. The rooms are charming and I love the antique decor. We stayed in a larger room and had a nice seating area. The bathroom was a bit quirky, but it was pretty clean. I do wish that the... More

Once again a visit to DC was made bearable by a stay at the Tabard Inn. If you are looking for something different, rooms similar to what you might see in an old victorian. Each room has character - not everyone's cup of tea so to speak but very comfortable. Staff are very nice and helpful. Restaurant provides a simple... More
