I recently stayed at the Taft Bridge Inn while waiting for furniture to arrive at my new apartment in DC. I have stayed at several B&Bs in the district before on short trips and this one is by far the best that I have been to.
The historic mansion is beautiful with a lot of character in the common areas and the rooms. Someone obviously spent a lot of time making sure the decor and design of the interiors was as welcoming and comfortable as possible.
I originally booked room 19 (one of the cheaper options) with a shared bathroom. Upon arrival I was offered a room upgrade to a room on the second floor with a private bath for only $10 extra a night (The room I was upgraded to would normally have been $60 more a night). While I don't mind having the shared bath the cheap upgrade was certainly appreciated.
The inn seems to draw an interesting international crowd. I had breakfast with an orthopedic surgeon from Luxembourg and his family and a Norwegian oil driller...all of whom provided excellent conversation to start off the day.
The breakfasts were phenomenal and the staff genuinely cared about making something each morning that the guests wanted to have rather than just imposing a fixed choice. Pastries and drinks were set out in the afternoons and were a tasty and refreshing addition.
All in all I have nothing bad to say about the Taft Bridge Inn and will definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the District.
