We just had our 25th anniversary yesterday at the Inn. My expectations were already high when I knew that the institution is already a member of Relais and Chateaux and on top of that a 5 star rating from Forbes Travel. The presentation from start to finish is excellent. I must admit I have a very keen eye when it... More

Yes, it is pricey - but what is a once-in-a-lifetime experience worth? For most of us, The Inn at Little Washington is a little out of our normal price range and it may be hard for you to hit the "book this room" button. I advise you to pluck up the courage and click it! Especially now that spring is... More

Celebrated my birthday with dinner and an overnight stay (Thomas Keller Suite) at the frighteningly expensive Inn at Little Washington, but it was worth every penny. This place never disappoints. The food, of course, is sublime, but the service is second-to-none. Everyone at the Inn goes out of their way to take personal care of their guests. You feel like... More

Every single thing about our stay and dinner there was spectacular. From the moment we pulled up to the moment we left, we felt like we were treated like royalty. The service was perfection, and the food--oh, the food! [I'm fantasizing about it as I write this.] I don't know how to put it into words. Amazing, outstanding, superb, etc.... More

The Inn at Little Washington is a great gem of a place to hide out for a day or two. The atmosphere is a mixture of casual elegance and pure luxury. The dining room is beautifully appointed and afternoon tea is a must do. Our room was in one of the out buildings and it was warm and cozy. Thank... More

We spent a Friday and Saturday evening at the Inn. We arrived and checked in just in time from the DC area for high tea in their outdoor garden, then chose to eat at a local restaurant. The room and the weather could not have been more perfect. I highly recommend a two night stay so that you can fully... More

After more than 30 years of being in DC and having heard about the Inn we finally stayed there on jan 17. It surpassed all our expectations and more.

If you want pure decadence and opulence with personalized customer service, go to the Inn - point blank - period. Since the Inn opened in 1978, the year Greg and I got married, this has been the tenth time that we have visited and to our amazement, Chef O'Connell and his staff have continued to surpass our expectations.

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
