“Great Location - Friendly Host”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

We needed a place to stay for a couple of days in DC and decided on Taft bridge inn. That was a good choice. Great location, parking (for a reasonable fee), close to the metro, lots of restaurants within walking distance.

The host was very friendly and we enjoyed the breakfast. Rooms were very nice though the AC was a bit noisy.

We highly recommend this place and will go back next time in DC!

Stayed September 2013, traveled with family

It has been a pleasure staying at Taft Bridge Inn. Perfect location, very friendly ownership, good breakfast. I had the shared bathroom, which was absolutely fine. My room was tiny, but clean and well kept. I particularly enjoyed the bench on the front porch - a perfect way to end the day.

Room Tip: 21 is very small, but good value

This was our first trip to DC and decided on a B&B instead of a hotel. I can't say enough about our stay at the Inn. From the historical home to the people who made our visit so special. Jennifer who prepared our breakfast each morning, always helpful with places to see, how to get around town, and making us feel so welcomed. We met so many interesting people from around the world each morning at breakfast. The hardest part was saying goodbye on our last day at the inn. It was like spending time at a good friends home. Thank you all at the Taft Inn for making our trip so special. Already miss the delicious breakfasts. Pam & Ruben

We had a great stay! Great service with a great breakfast. Our two-year old boy was welcomed and was very comfortable. Jennifer was great! Taft BB is a great deal as the larger hotels in the area are more expensive. If staying in DC again, we will return!

Room Tip: Room 11 has a back door which can be nice if you parked your car in the back.

I have stayed at the Taft Bridge Inn on three separate occasions and each time it has been a great place to stay. The Inn itself is classic and beautiful, including the front garden. There is a nice variety of attractive rooms to choose from, depending on your taste and budget. The location is in a safe and handsome neighborhood full of foreign embassies and the architecture and lush trees and plants in the area make for beautiful walks. I love the Taft Bridge Inn and wholeheartedly recommend it.

This is a wonderful place to stay while staying in the downtown DC area. It's located a short walk from the Dumont metro station and is a great alternative to the nearby Hilton.

This B&B is a warm and charming place. The rooms are clean and well appointed, the staff very friendly, and breakfast is nicely done (and tasty!). The Inn is quiet and I found that any question I had was quickly answered. They have a membership with a local gym which is free for guests to use.

On a minor downside, the room I stayed in was lacking enough electrical outlets so you may need a powerstrip if you have several items that need to be plugged in. Also, they tend to go a little too much with low power lightbulbs - I had to have all the lights on to get the room bright enough.

I heartily recommend a stay at the Taft Bridge Inn. You won't regret it!

was concerned when first booked that may be too far out but only 10 mins to dupont circle metro and 10 to 15 more to main sights. Lots of restaurants to chose from within same distance. Lovely old inn, Jennifer and Yoshie very welcoming , nothing too much trouble. I was not feeling well when arrived so Jennifer did me fresh fruit for breakfast whilst hubbie tucked into fresh pancakes one morning quiche another, nice size , have often felt overwhelmed at breakfast in other American stops but excellent quality. Rooms elegant and bed supremely comfy, hot water took a while to come on but as long as patient no issue. WI if was a bit intermittent so made looking stuff up more difficult but if we had asked at the desk sure they would have done this for us. A far cry from bland business hotels and would highly recommend if you are ever in washington

Room Tip: as on a quiet street so even facing the road was not a problem , all rooms are very individual ours...
