We came here for restaurant week, and first this little gem tucked away on N St is so quaint that I wanted to just book a room and spend the night and morning there! It feels cozy, like a place you want to stumble into on a blustery winter's night, and get warmed up with a hot toddy and a... More

If you want a bland, generic, corporate hotel where every room is the same, look elsewhere. The Tabard is full of antique furniture, and oozes history and character. We struck up a conversation with the gentleman at the next table at breakfast. He turned out to be the hotel's GM, and when we told him we were parked on the... More

This lovely and 'fin de siecle' decorated city house was a pleasure to stay in. We stayed in room #3 which is very spacious and has a nice street view.

This restaurant is tucked away inside a cute old brownstone that has been turned into an inn. Bottom floor is a cute bar and lounge. Upper floor is restaurant. You will feel like you have been transported back in time to an old cozy European inn. Food is on the upper end of the price scale, but was very nice... More

I have stayed all around DC but always wanted to stay here. It is a charming old property in the heart of DC (closest Metro-Dupont Circle). Room is very quiet especially since there is no TV in any room. There is no elevator either so be prepared to climb up to 4 floors. Free coffee in the morning and continental... More

Although we only stayed one night, we were quite impressed. Most hotels were booked due to a city-wide conference and we were still trying to find a room at a reasonable price (considering it's DC). We were about to book a room in Silver Springs when we came across a Tripadvisor review mentioning this Inn. The hotel is close to... More

This is a charming inn near Dupont Circle. The lighting in our room was a bit dim, but the lovely furniture made up for that. The staff was very helpful and the meals were fantastic! We all loved our stay and would definitely go back!
