This review is only for the restaurant; we chose not to stay at the hotel because the price was just extraordinary and there were other excellent options nearby. On to dinner, first off, this is worth the splurge. It is something you will remember and the staff is phenomenal! From start to finish, they cater to our every need and... More

Last August we celebrated the birthday of our dear friend and decided to do something special. With 10 friends we flew from Maine to DC and made our way to beautiful Washington VA, where the inn is located. With help from the excellent staff the whole trip from DC to Washington was organized. A cruise to Mount Vernon, lunch in... More

I wrote a separate review of our outstanding dinner at the end: one of the most memorable meals of our lives, and a great way to celebrate my partner's birthday. We also stayed at the main house of the Inn for the night, and for the most part we greatly enjoyed the attention, the additional treats (tea, breakfast) and even... More

This was our second trip to the Inn at Little Washington and it was once again perfect. They have a great staff. What I like is that they can be the best without being pretentious. Dinner was fabulous. I especially liked the lamb carpaccio with the Caesar ice-cream. The sommelier selected a Chambolle-Musigny that paired perfectly with everything. Being innkeepers... More

My husband and I celebrated my birthday at the Inn at Little Washington, and knew that it was going to be a grand experience based on friends' prior visits and other reviews we read.

We were there for an overnight stay while enjoying the fall foliage in the region which included stays in other hotels and the Inn knocked everybody else out of the park. We arrived for check-in and were immediately treated to a champagne cocktail and a very warm welcome by the GM and then given a short tour and shown to... More

We stayed and had dinner at the Inn At Little Washington this past weekend. It was one of the most amazing experiences we've ever had. I want to start by saying that anyone who rates this Inn/restaurant as average, let alone terrible, couldn't have been at the same place. Those ratings are just preposterous. So, now for the review --... More

If you believe that perfection is unattainable, than I suggest a stay at the Inn at Little Washington, complete with dinner, of course. The Inn is comprised of a small and intimate main building accompanied by a number of smaller houses that have been converted to accommodate guests. We stayed in room #14, and found it to be comfortable, roomy,... More
