As is my custom, I have attached my recent letter to Jason Waterlow, the Managing Director at the Inn at Little Washington, after my recent visit. For those of you reading this who think I am too picky and should lighten up on my comments, I would say that, having been in the hospitality business for ten years, I appreciated...

I waited for the initial buzz to wear off, but it didn't. This is what 5 Star looks like in the Real world. From the minute we arrived until the minute we left...EVERYTHING was perfect. Having an F&B background, I know how difficult it is to get everyone on the same sheet of music. This place is choreographed perfectly, from...

The afternoon tea is complimentary and ushers in the exquisite luxury of service for your stay. The chef, Patrick O'Connell is an icon among the international scene for being self-taught but a highly engage entrepreneur in making a memorable visit whilst paying exorbitantly for it. Turn-down service offers a memento (don't want to spoil it for you) and morning breakfast...

You just know it's going to be special when you pull up outside the front door. And at every turn, it absolutely is. Beautiful rooms, fabric everywhere, wallpaper, coziness. Our room was the Jacques Pepin room and had a fireplace, heavy draperies and a little balcony. Homemade treats and drinks were waiting in the room when we checked in. Beautifully...

We went to celebrate my birthday that ended in a zero. The inn made it special. Every course was so good. The chef makes the food look and taste so good. We have been here before, and look forward to our next dining experience at the inn. I just wish it were not so far from home.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Inn for one evening and we both wished it could have been one week. From the moment you arrive, you know that you are entering a magical place.

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
