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.

Just got back from 3 days in DC and stayed at the Tabard Inn. At first I was a little worried, no TV, but did not miss it once. The rooms are so quaint. Also did not mind the 3 flights of stairs to get to the 4th floor. The entire staff was very nice and always helpful. Our floor...

We stayed at this charming hotel and loved its quirkyness and amusing decor. Our dinner reservations fell through, so we reserved a room in the bar. The food and interesting drinks were superb, as was the service. We did need to jolly the front desk staff along a little in order encourage them to be cheerful. But we are most...

What a lovely hotel. I had the pleasure of staying at the Tabard Inn for 3 nights and it suited my needs to perfection. The people working at the reception were all so very charming and helpful (Joel and a young lady working days). The room was very clean and the bed, pillows and linens were all of good quality......

I'm writing this review from room 59 of the Tabard Inn at 10.30 on a Saturday night. I'd like to be sleeping, as would my wife and infant daughter, but we can't due to the wedding band that is playing outside of our window. The desk clerk, Meriel, was very apologetic, but informed us that the band would be playing...

Ups and downs with this place. Either you'll see it as being 'characterful and quirky' or you'll think the place could do with a makeover. (You have to embrace the feeling that you're in a journalist in a John Le Carre or Graham Greene novel to enjoy it. If you're after a luxury stay, best to go elsewhere...) Bags of...
