I was lucky to end up at the Taft Bridge Inn in late September 2013 after I found that I couldn't get a room for under $200/night at the Hilton or Doubletree in Dupont Circle. My room (18) was spacious and had a tasteful Asian motif. The bed was big and firm, although the pillows were flat and lumpy and could use replacing. The shower in the large en suite bathroom had perfect water pressure. The highlights of my stay: (1) a gourmet breakfast prepared every morning by Yoshie, the inn's charming owner, or her lovely assistant, Jennifer, and (2) the inn's location. The Taft Bridge Inn is on a quiet street just a few minutes' walk from the shops and restaurants of Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle. The Dupont Circle Metro stop is about 10 minutes away by foot. The next time I go to DC on my own or with my husband, I'll happily return to this cozy and centrally located B&B.
