This review is a little late. We stayed there at the beginning of February for our son's wedding. The hotel is in a great location - right off of Dupont Circle, so it is very close to the metro station and easy walking distance to restaurants. The hotel has a sense of history, and therefore has its little quirks. Every room is different and each are beautiful in there own way. We stayed in room 7 which has 2 queen beds and a private bath and overlooked the street. The room was large and spacious, but the street noise at night from people leaving bars and nightclubs in the area made it difficult to get a good night's rest. Other people in our party had rooms to the rear of the inn and did not have the issue with noise. Since it is an old building, the stairs are very narrow (no elevator), so if that is an issue, I would request a lower floor. There is a wonderful lounge area downstairs with a roaring fire, which was great on cold nights. This hotel will not be for everyone, but if you like a place with character and want a great location, then you will love it here.
If you are looking for fabulous venue for a small wedding, reception, etc, THIS IS AN AWESOME PLACE. Our son had his wedding and reception here. The special event staff was superb. They did all the set-up and also catered the reception. Everything was beautifully done and the food was delicious. The reception rooms are simply gorgeous. I highly recommend the Tabard Inn for any special event.
