Taft Bridge Inn
Ranked #12 of 35 Washington DC B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 4, 2013

It has been so wonderful to stay here at the Inn. The staff are genuine, caring, unpretentious, and responsive; I am privileged to have met Yoshie, Jennifer, Lewis, and Juana. It is a rare treat to find such comfortable accommodations in D.C. Rooms here are cozy, calming, and reflect the stately old world charm of the Georgian exterior. The location is perfect - quiet, and just steps away from the fun and bustle of Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle. My stay at the Inn has been a genuine pleasure, I rank it "Excellent" and whole-heartedly recommend staying here.

Room Tip: There is no swimming pool or fitness center.

We enjoyed the hospitality of Taft Bridge Inn for Inauguration Weekend. The atmosphere was helpful and festive with caring staff, lovely rooms and beautiful artwork. For inauguration day, the helpful staff provided a hearty breakfast to go and warm wishes for the day. The inn is on a quiet street near to wonderful restaurants. If you want to escape the tourists and feel at home, this is the place to enjoy DC.

When all the other hotels in DC were charging $800 a night + 15% or more for the 2013 presidential inauguration the Taft Bridge Inn kept their normal prices.

The people of Taft were warm and welcoming. The rooms were beautiful and comfortable. The breakfast each day was fantastic. They even made everyone breakfast to go on the day of the inauguration since everyone had to leave so early.

The location was great, just 5 minute walk to the DuPont circle Metro station. There were also plenty of taxis and buses.

It was a wonderful place to end the long cold days in January and grab a hot cup of tea and chat with people next to a crackling fire...like a home away from home.

A beautiful place to stay in DC. A charming 3 story place that is reminiscent of an Asian themed Upstairs/Downstairs. As a Downton Abbey fan, it is a pleasure to be served breakfast in the morning by staff eager to serve, to help you feel at home, and delight your taste-buds with their latest creation.

Room Tip: As a single business traveler, the third floor rooms are quaint, servant quarters. The bathroom on t...

I have visited Taft Bridge Inn for five days every year for the last 15 years or so. I always recommend it to my friends and colleagues. Yoshe and her staff are wonderful! I'm a vegan and they cater to my vegan needs without me even asking. The Inn's decor and ambiance are fantastic. It is great to sit around the breakfast table in the morning and chat with old friends and meet new ones. It is nice to sit in the lounge in the evenings in front of the fire and chat with Yoshe or friends. When I think of Taft Bridge Inn the following words come to my mind: friendly, peaceful, comfortable, soothing. I recommend it highly.

Ideally you would keep a place like this to yourself, so that next time there will be space for you... A fantastic alternative to the impersonal Hilton 5 minutes away. Great to have breakfast in the morning with people you know, rather than hiding behind a newspaper at a buffet. Lovely to come back after a meeting and sit down in the big and comfortable sitting room. Lots of restaurants nearby. A 10 minute walk from Dupont Circle. Very friendly staff (home from home). And so much character!

Room Tip: Try a different room every time you stay. They are all different!

I am staying at the Taft Bridge Inn for a business conference, and what a treat it is. The rooms are wonderful, my bed is very comfortable, the breakfast is amazing and the staff are warm and helpful. Moreover, the wifi is good and efficient, and working by a warm fire in the sitting room was a really nice bonus. I couldn't think of anywhere else I would want to stay if I was in Washington.
