“Affordable convenient option with lots of charm”
Reviewed October 17, 2012

Came to DC for a quick three-day conference and could not find any decently priced hotel in the area as there were lots of things going on in the city that week. Looked into B&Bs instead and found positive reviews about Taft Bridge Inn and I can also add to the praises. The home is quaint, charming and clean, the staff are friendly and the location is perfect (less than 10 minute walk to Dupont Circle metro). The breakfasts were absolutely delicious although a bit later than ideal for me as I had to wake up early to get to my conference sessions on time but I still managed to squeeze in the meals. One small negative was that my room was in the front of the house, so any time the front door open and closed, I could hear everything (slamming, voices, etc.) which woke me up a few times on occasion when people came in late. The other thing was that there was no desk in the room so it was difficult for me to work in the mornings/evenings but it was a minor inconvenience.

On my recent trip to visit Washington, DC my brother and I stayed at the TBI. The price and location were right, but of course I wondered if it would be okay. I was thrilled to find the place way above my expectations. Yoshi the host was very welcoming and helpful, the rooms were comfortable and cozy and the whole place is spotless. Jennifer, the innkeeper took excellent care of us, offering up a wonderful breakfast every morning, with delicious coffee, an array of tea choices and water infused with lemon and mint. There is a nice parlor on the first floor for all to enjoy, as well as a small sitting area outside our bedroom on the third floor. A refridgerator on the third floor offers a place to store perishables and an opportunity to buy water and soda. When the outside temperature dropped suddenly, we were provided with a nice portable radiator and our room was warmed up for us while we were out. I can't say enough about how wonderful this place is. The surrounding neighborhood is upscale and very safe and the White house is only 3 miles away. It's a short walk to eateries both on 18th street and near Du Pont circle. There is a bus stop nearby which will take you downtown and it's only a $15 cab ride to the White House.

This hotel is a place to stay if you want to feel at home while traveling. The building and rooms have a personality that is inviting and welcoming. The breakfasts made and served right in front of you are delicious and add that extra touch that makes you want to come back. The drawback of the place is that it is an old building that requires one to deal with suitcases dragged up and down the stairs as there is no elevator. The cooling/heating system is of the old type that cannot deliver the comfort of a well regulated temperature. Overall, though, I would pick this hotel over all other older hotels in DC.

Room Tip: Rooms on the ground floor are best if you cannot walk up the stairs as there is no elevator.

After two weeks at Taft Bridge Inn, it felt like home. Jennifer, the inn keeper, is great, making breakfast specials nearly every day in addition to the standard three options. She also put the coffee pot on early so we could go down and get a cup before the breakfast time began. She is friendly and welcoming.

I've been going to the Taft Bridge Inn for several years and have now stayed in four different rooms, one on the first floor, one on the second floor, and two on the third floor. The rooms vary quite a bit, but I have been able to sleep well in all of them because the inn's location is generally quiet (my favorite was on the second floor). The less-expensive rooms on the third floor with shared bathrooms vary from very nice to drab and functional. My preference is a room in which the windows will open because, otherwise, the room can feel stuffy and stale.

The location can't be beat--easy walk to Dupont--and I'd much prefer to stay at the Taft Bridge Inn than in a large and impersonal hotel.

This was a great find, we would go back for sure. Great location, lots of shopping and eating nearby. A good 20 minute fast pace walk to downtown, but we enjoy walking, metro is nearby as well. We found the city easy to get around in. The staff do all to make your stay comfortable, place was clean and had everything you needed, it was just a great experience. They had cookies and such in the afternoon, it was all I could do to let my husband leave some for other guests. Take the trolley tours for sure, they are great. Lots to see in Washington, one needs to pace themselves. Very happy with this pace.

I was looking for a place for my father to stay while he was visiting DC. I chose the Taft Bridge Inn and he couldn't have been any happier. Very clean, friendly staff, and a great location. Thanks Taft Bridge Inn!
