There is not enough room here to tell you why I love the Tabard. But it mostly comes down to this: STAFF. At every turn, the staff has been the thing that has kept me coming back. I have stayed at the hotel (even when I lived in the District!), eaten at the restaurant many times, and had one of the more special events in my life take place there, in one of your banquet rooms on the second floor. I know and trust many of these staff members. The deserve our support. Don't give up the fight!!
