There are no views of the Capitol or the Washington Monument. Rather than awe you with marble, the Tabard aims to create an oasis from D.C. Located on a quiet stretch of N Street NW, the Tabard is unassuming from the outside and is downright cozy within. The rooms, which range from tiny nooks to the spacious penthouse, are each uniquely decorated. Aside from its high-quality restaurant, there’s also a lounge with a fireplace and a brick-walled garden where you can enjoy the weather. If you can avoid overhearing conversations and depending on the weather you’re “enjoying,” guests at the Inn can feel like they’re actually on a country retreat and not in the nation’s capital.
