The Tabard Inn is a great place to stay in the city, but be far away from the cookie cutter chain hotels. It is the place to stay for a unique and quaint experience. Hospitality is great, food is excellent and atmosphere very welcoming! This was a ladies long weekend trip to experience the city and The Tabard Inn fit the bill.
However, this may not be the place for everyone. If you want a quiet romantic restaurant, it's not for you. The restaurant is small and noisy with an eclectic clientele that creates a warm and boisterous experience. The food was fantastic, and don't skimp on desert. You will walk it off the next day anyway! If you want elevators and pampered luxury, it's not for you. We found brownstone charm but no elevators, only winding staircases which took you to your room, each unique from the next. If you want Jacuzzi tubs, you'll find small bathrooms with charm instead of miles of marble. And if you have to have a TV in your room, it's rumored they have one that can be taken to your room but why watch TV when you can find someone famous in the restaurant?
All in all, a great experience and a very memorable stay!
