The Inn is one of our favorite places in the world. We began coming when the floors were cement and the decor was basic. The food never was. It was always, and continues to be, among the best in the wolrld. Patrick O'Connell, by his own admission, is a perfectionist. New dishes don't see the dining room before being endlessly... More

My husband and I have stayed here twice - once in January and again in May - and both visits were absolutely superb. What makes The Inn at Little Washington truly unique isn't the opulent decor or delicious meals, though both are unforgettable; it's the luxury of feeling utterly relaxed in such an extravagant setting. Very few hotels of this... More

Totally lives up to the hype. One of the best hotel experiences I have had in the U.S. I felt like I was transported into an old American world of luxury from 150 years ago. They think of EVERYTHING. The minute we arrived they whisked us into the tea room for a snack and it was something out of an... More

We visited the Inn in celebration of our Son's 50th birthday. He and his wife had visited before but only for dinner. It was our first visit and what a delightful surprise it was to fine this beautiful Inn located in the small town of Washington Va. We felt like we had gone back in time. The Inn itself is... More

The Inn and all its splendor is a testament to its dedicated and friendly staff. Every moment was personalized from the greeting as we drove up to the letter from the chef and proprietor, to the menus and more and not in a cheesy or overstated way, but it was heartfelt and sincere. We were ushered in the Inn and... More

If you're in this area for a horsing event, you'll feel right at home. If not, be warned. The locals are known for their aloof and somewhat snobby behavior. I mean, you're in horse country and last time I checked, horses (and anything having to do with them) aren't cheap so, there you go. I got a little of this... More

It is hard to write a review of a place that is sheer perfection. I can say that the service was exceptional. Not overly hyped, not pushy, not too much at all. It was JUST Right. Check-in, what check-in? They seem to know who you are before you come through the door. They had our room ready, gave us a... More

This famous establishment is often rated as one of the best, if not the best, restaurant in the world. And that is no exaggeration. Impeccable service and the finest meal you've ever experienced. A beautiful, setting in a beautiful area, with people who make you feel like family. Everyone should be fortunate enough to enjoy this at least once.

We just returned from a visit to The Inn. My sisters and their husbands had not been there before. I think the Inn is the most wonderful place in the world to visit. Now my family thinks so too.

A wonderful small hotel in a idyllic setting. The staff are excellent and even call you by name when they meet you walking about the town of Washington. With wineries, horse country and National parks all around the setting could not be better.
