“Great Value & Gourmet Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

I was lucky to end up at the Taft Bridge Inn in late September 2013 after I found that I couldn't get a room for under $200/night at the Hilton or Doubletree in Dupont Circle. My room (18) was spacious and had a tasteful Asian motif. The bed was big and firm, although the pillows were flat and lumpy and could use replacing. The shower in the large en suite bathroom had perfect water pressure. The highlights of my stay: (1) a gourmet breakfast prepared every morning by Yoshie, the inn's charming owner, or her lovely assistant, Jennifer, and (2) the inn's location. The Taft Bridge Inn is on a quiet street just a few minutes' walk from the shops and restaurants of Adams Morgan and Dupont Circle. The Dupont Circle Metro stop is about 10 minutes away by foot. The next time I go to DC on my own or with my husband, I'll happily return to this cozy and centrally located B&B.

We stayed here in September and were impressed with the friendly staff and generosity of the owner and manager (they lent us their Metro cards). Also the guests of like mind from across the US and overseas who contributed to great breakfast conversations. The room was comfortable but we would have liked to have opened a window as the aircon was noisy.
The overall atmosphere is fantastic and the breakfasts were the best we had during our tour of the US east coast. It is very conveniently located for public transport and good restaurants within walking distance (especially the French). We will definitely stay here again if we're back in Washington. Many thanks to Yoshi, Jennifer and Louis. Helene & Lindsay.

We stayed at the Taft Bridge Inn for four nights the last week of September. We were warmly greeted by Louis, and given a beautifully presented delicious breakfast the next morning by Yoshie, the owner of this lovely inn.
The inn is well appointed with comfortable sitting areas, dining room and relaxing bedrooms. Our room had a terrace where it was great to enjoy a glass of wine and some relaxation after busy days sightseeing.
Metro, buses and a variety of restaurants are in close proximity and Jennifer answered any questions we had in addition to providing excellent breakfasts and home-made banana bread.
We enjoyed great breakfast conversations in the morning with other guests and were pleased to meet repeat visitors, which in itself speaks volumes regarding this B&B.
Yoshie, Louis and Jennifer, thanks so much again for you warm hospitality and making our stay in D.C all the more enjoyable. We look forward to meeting again.
Warm regards,
Kathie & Bob

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!

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.
