Naturally, our expectations were very high as we headed to Little Washington. The town is charming, the inn is lovely, and the staff is friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Our room was quiet and every detail was well thought out. We enjoyed the grounds and meeting the garden staff (Very helpful and informative! They gave us some tips for...

My wife and I had a wonderful stay at the Inn. We used to live in Washington, but haven't been to the Inn in probably 20 years. It is still a spectacular experience.

Having always heard about the Inn, I decided we would treat ourselves for our tenth anniversary by staying for a night. I must preface by saying we've stayed in some nice places, and eaten in quite a few excellent restaurants, so my expectations - especially considering the price - were rather high. That said, my wife and I agreed that...

The Inn at Little Washington is a singular property. If you have ever wondered about going there, do it!

My wife and I recently spent three nights at the Inn at Little Washington in Washington, Virginia. This is a world-class hotel and a complete indulgence in luxury and service.

okay, I know I am in a minority here, or perhaps saying what others are afraid to, but I just don't get the panache this place clearly has. Yes, the service is impeccable, but in my book it is so impeccable as to border on creepy. Who of us really needs that much attention. The decor is extravagantly eclectic, but...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in the small town of Washington, Virginia, The Inn at Little Washington is the only Double Forbes Five Star, Double AAA Five Diamond property in the Washington metro area. The Inn's eighteen bedrooms and suites are sumptuous hideaways created by Joyce Evans, a London stage and set designer, for whom The Inn has become a life's work. Many of the furnishings were purchased in England, numbered and shipped to Virginia to be assembled on site like a giant jigsaw puzzle. The Inn offers a range of accommodations from well-appointed rooms to luxurious, two story suites many with balconies and garden views. The Inn's dining rooms are pure fantasy - a wondrous cocoon of luxury. Rose-colored, silk lampshades float above each table creating a private, romantic world below. Chef/Proprietor Patrick O'Connell's creations arrive as if served by invisible hands, course after course more dazzling than the last. From the award-winning 14,000 bottle wine cellar, which includes the finest offerings from Bordeaux, Burgundy, California and Virginia, the Sommelier plays matchmaker between you, your dinner and the wine. ... more   less
