Hotel Tabard Inn
The Hotel Tabard Inn is located five blocks from the White House in the Dupont Circle neighborhood. The hotel, opened in 1922 by Marie Willoughby Rogers, is made up of three 19th-century townhouses and boasts 40 individually decorated guest rooms. Each room has period décor, including artwork, rugs, and furnishings, as well as wireless Internet, but in order to maintain a historic feel, the rooms are not equipped with televisions. The hotel also has an on-site restaurant, run by chef Paul Pelt, that features seasonal cuisine and a lounge that offers live jazz on Sunday evenings.
