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. The service is superb, with full attention to every detail -- upon arrival, at dinner, the included breakfast the next morning, with every member of the staff trained, polite and attentive. We stayed at the Inn, but the high point, as expected, was the dinner. It was terrific and creative, and we were delighted to see that this had not changed in our long absence. We both ordered the degustation menu, with associated wine pairings and enjoyed every course. The portions were just right so that we weren't, as often occurs with set menus, completely full at course 5 of 10. If I had anything to criticize, it was that the server missed one of the wine pairings when the particular course was served and we had to get his attention to pour it before we started the course, but that was the only slip from near perfection. If you stay at the Inn and have the included breakfast, what is served without supplemental charge is both enough and very good as opposed to an after thought. So resist the initial urge to also order the eggs benedict. One suggetion -- both the rooms at the Inn and dinner are very expensive, so I would reserve going for those special occasions when you feel like slurging.
- 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
