This place is charming and unique, but I won't go back. I had reserved many weeks in advance for a 3 night stay and told the hotel I needed a first floor room since stairs are difficult for me and there's no elevator. I was assured of a first floor room. A few days before my arrival I got a...

I love this place, feels old yet it's comfortable and the food is amazing. If the weather permits, sit outside. It's a great breakfast spot and well worth it. Afterwards you can continue touring around DC because its not out of the way.

Charming, historic building in a great location. I loved eating breakfast in the courtyard and I enjoyed a few dinners that were more than respectable. The rooms are tiny and there are shared bathrooms which is to be expected with the price. I spent one night in the penthouse suite which was lovely! I have to say, though, that the...

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....
