Our stay at the Inn was the most perfect 21 hours we've ever experienced. We came with high expectations to celebrate our tenth anniversary- the Inn exceeded every one of them. Hard to imagine ever finding a place where the staff take more pride in what they do, or do it better. Just being close to that was pure pleasure.... More

We've dined at the Inn at least annually for fifteen years. This time we booked a room for two nights, and made reservations for two dinners. The room was gorgeous, and spacious for our needs. Bathroom was quite roomy and well appointed. It wasn't a gastronomic overdose. The menu selections were diverse, and as wonderful as ever. We spent the... More

I am so happy to brag about my mentor, Patrick, who shared so much with us in perfecting White House and Camp David service when I worked there. He continues his terrific work here! We gladly enjoyed the gourmet dinner and drinks.

Had a memorable dinner experience at this delightful place, celebrating a 60th birthday. We enjoyed exquisite food, flawless yet warm and friendly service. We were lucky enough to meet the chef and visit the kitchen after dinner--a thoroughly professional establishment!

No. Really. Don't read all the reviews. You can read this one though. Here's the thing. This place is awesome. Beautiful accommodations and the best fine dining you will ever experience. Creative and pretty food that is also delicious. Don't bring the kids. We were there in the summer and for dinner, some men had jackets (mostly the 60+ crowd)... More

Your comments are appreciated as is your sense of awareness regarding anticipation and expectations.

Worth every penny, without a doubt- I chose to celebrate a milestone in this, O'Conell's colorful inn and restaurant. Class pours from everything. Beauty wraps in the velvet and playful papers on the furniture and walls. You feel the love in every detail and taste the effort in every bite. Perfection is every way. If you do nothing else, experience... More

The Inn at Little Washington provides the best of everything and is among the best Relais & Chateaux properties we have visited. The Inn is absolutely beautiful and no expense or detail is spared. We stayed in "The Parsonage' (across the street from the main building) and recommend it highly. My wife and I loved the dinner and felt it... More

We appreciate your review and compliments regarding your stay with us. The Parsonage was a restoration of a beautiful older Victorian home that took us over three years and has quickly become a part of the heart and soul of The Inn. And one of our most highly requested accommodations. We're pleased you found it comfortable and complimentary to your... More

You will not be disappointed. This is arguably the best restaurant in the country and the rooms are gorgeous. I typically write long reviews detailing every aspect of a property, but I'm perfectly content simply telling folks that spending a night at The Inn at Little Washington (and having dinner there) should be on everyone's bucket list.
