Spent 3 days at the Tabard Inn in July, 2015. Had a lovely stay, but we like quirky and different. Definitely not a mainstream hotel experience which we prefer. Each room is unique. Ours was huge packed with shabby chick Victorian style furnishings, but bathroom although charming rather strange. Lots of steps everywhere. Any one with walking issue problems should... More

We are so sad writing this. We loved the Tabard, quirky but always enjoyable. Unfortunately the Tabard no longer rises to the occasion. Room maintenance was ordinary, lights remained burned out, the room fan sounded like a wheezing old man, and piles of sheets remained on a chair outsie our room for three days. The staff seemed more interested in... More

Stayed for 3 nights late July, loved the hotel, the rooms, made me smile wherever I looked. If they could only add some comfortable pillows and mattresses it would be great. Easy walking distance to the white house monuments and shopping. We had breakfast included, we did not return after the first day. Staff rude and totally disinterested. Buy your... More

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
