My wife and I recently stayed at the Tabard Inn to see all the sights of Washington. Our friends recommended the Tabard. I typically stay at Marriotts and the like but I thought I would give it a try. What a delight, set a on a quaint tree lined street off of the Dupont Circle area the hotel has the feel of an Inn in old Europe. From the moment we checked in we were treated warmly and graciously by a great eager staff. The room was absolutely charming, filled with antiques and amazing, creative touches. The bed was quite comfortable and the room quiet and peaceful.
The restaurant is quite good with lots of inventive takes on traditional dishes. Be sure to spend some time at the Bar as well, Mark (the bartender) is a great source of things to do in the city and is a real card that will be sure to make you smile before you retire for the evening.
Be warned, the rooms do not have TV’s. However, we were so busy we not notice them and it was nice to be away from the all the news, even though we were staying were lots of the news breaks.
We will definitely return to Tabard soon.
