Stayed for a couple of nights in April. Loved the unique decorating and our dinner was outstanding! The room was very comfortable. Need to be able to walk up and down stairs and step into a claw foot tub. Staff were very accommodating. Good vibe throughout!

Love this place for brunch when the weather is nice and you can get a table in the back patio. It really feels like a little secret in the big city. Never stayed at the hotel so can't say anything about that.

Wandered over to the Tabard Inn over the past weekend for a late afternoon meal, and it was a wonderful experience. It is charming - and unpretentious. We sat in the lounge area which is mostly large old sofas and upholstered chairs - very dark and quiet - which was just fine on a day with a temperature over 100...

My husband and I recently spent a week in Washington DC and wanted a different experience than a larger hotel. We found the Hotel Tabard Inn on line and decided to check them out. The rooms are quaint, very comfortable bed, and VERY quiet at night. We didn't have to experience the heavy door slamming you hear at large hotels....

We stayed at Tabard Inn for 2 nights and absolutely loved it! The rooms are very charming and the staff is very friendly! We stayed in the Penthouse and it was absolutely wonderful. Very spacious room with a private kitchen with fridge. The decor in the rooms is absolutely unique. Our friend stayed in a another room with a private...

Depending what you’re looking for, the Tabard can be a dream or a headache. It has 1890s charm and architectural details in abundance and free wi-fi, but there’s no television. The woodwork, furnishings and décor is gorgeous, but there is no elevator so be prepared to walk up 2-3 flights if your room is on the 3rd or 4th floor....

Hard to believe you are in DC with all it's glitzy new hotels, this Inn offers very well appointed period decorated rooms with new foam mattresses, delicious breakfasts and a great location. Our stay was marred by incompetent and very slow front desk check in but that was forgotten by the end of our memorable stay.

My boyfriend took me to this quirky Inn for my birthday this past memorial day weekend. I was pleased by the ability of the hotel to capture such a quaint feel while being only minutes walking distance from the bustling Dupont Circle. Whether having a drink on the outdoor patio, walls adorned with ivy, or warming by the fireplace in...

We had a birthday dinner in their upstairs restaurant room overlooking the patio area with friends, and we can highly recommend it. Reasonably priced champagne and good wines to follow. Food and service was excellent. You will ned a reservation as it is very popular and an in-house hotel restaurant.
