I loved my stay at the Tabard Inn. My room didn't have a television, shock horror, so I was forced to read instead. Everything about this place slows you down and adds to a feeling of comfort and tranquility. The public areas are really inviting and the restaurant is a popular destination in itself. We had breakfast and lunch here... More

I was given a thank you gift card for the Tabard Inn so went on the generosity of clients. We didn't read reviews ahead of time so may have made some different choices if we had. The room we had was at the front and quite noisy- we were in Room 7 and ran the fan all night to cut... More

Read the reviews- this Inn is not for everyone. But after a week of blaring sirens in NYC, the Tabard Inn was an oasis of quirky charm, quiet and cool for my first visit to Washington DC. It was recommended by local friends who must be thanked. Staff were helpful (printing out directions to a local Church when I enquired)... More

Lovely brunch, great service and cozy atmosphere. Suggest double-check your credit card statement for additional, phantom charge. Likely honest mistake but management slow to correct - still waiting after 5 phone calls and one email.

Located in a series of historic townhouses, it has a wonderful patina, and feels like an old New England inn. Warm fireplace in the lounge for the winter, nice cozy bar, and homey rooms. The dining room isn't the most scenic, but it's comfortable and the food is amazing!

The Tabard Inn is a nice choice for a trip to DC. The 90 year old building is decorated very eclectically and maintained fairly well. It isn't a posh hotel but is very unique. We were on the third floor(top) which was quite a hike up the stairs after a long day of site seeing. The restaurant and bar are... More

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
