For over 90 years the Tabard Inn has provided a charming, unassuming and relaxing environment for guests from around the world. Known as the oldest continuously operating hotel in Washington D.C., the Hotel Tabard Inn opened its doors in 1917. Initially designed as 3 private residences between 1887 and 1907, the Tabard Inn originated in the single building at 1739 N Street in 1917 expanding in 1920 to include 1741 and 1737 N Street forming the Tabard Inn as it is known today.
The current owners have injected a new life into the present surroundings which has often been described as “inspired eclectic” while preserving its turn-of-the-century charm and quiet dignity. Forty rooms are available for overnight guests each unique in character and design. Lounges for the comfort of Tabard patrons are scattered throughout the main floor and the bar is a favorite haunt for journalists, publishers and those involved in the arts and congressional intrigue.
