Over the moon

Dec 5th, 2019

The Inn at Little Washington is an American treasure. The Inn itself is spectacular, drenched with warmth and charm. I had chosen to stay there because I wanetd to have dinner there, but the Inn would be a marvelous destination in and of itself even without a restaurant. But the restaurant.... Fully deserving its three Michelin stars. Hewed in the classics but beautifully modern as well. I dreaded leaving and I cannot wait to return. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Excellent escape to the Virginia countryside.

Nov 13th, 2019

This review is from June, I just haven't had time to put it together. This was our second stay at the Inn. We once again stayed in the Parsonage, which is the building across from the main building. The best way to sum up a stay at the Inn is relaxing and enjoyable. The checkin experience was once again flawless. We pulled up, a doorman welcomed us inside the main building and we were provided a welcome cocktail while our room was prepared. They moved our car to the Parsonage lot, took our bags inside and then someone retrieved us from the bar and escorted us to the room. My only nitpick was the AC was out in the Parsonage and the hotel had installed window AC units. It was obviously a very last minute issue because there were three HVAC trucks outside and it looked like they were trying really hard to get it working again. I appreciate the effort, but it would have been nice if the staff had mentioned the issue and potentially offered another room. It is possible they were full (it was a Wednesday night). The rooms are five star all the way. High end finishings, fixtures, linens. Housekeeping is flawless and they seem to know whenever you're out of the room and tidy up. I came back from dinner and my sunglasses had been cleaned and placed on an Inn branded cleaning cloth. It's these little things they think of and do so well. The Parsonage also features a snack and beverage center that features tea, coffee, water and soft drinks as well as scratch-made cookies and the Inn's awesome granola. Before dinner, guests at the hotel are invited to afternoon tea. It's awesome. They bring out a variety of sweet and savory bites and the tea list is extensive. Service is five stars. Dinner this time was excellent, as always. When we arrived for dinner, they placed flowers on our lapels. It appeared hotel guests had these, possibly as a way for the staff to identify who was staying at the hotel? As an apology for the AC issue they started us with a complimentary glass of Champagne. I had one small dietary restriction and to help the staff remember, they changed out my water glass to a different style so everyone on the staff would know. It's these small little details that push them to the top. The food was fantastic. Wine director Bill Harris was great, as always. They have an impressive list and he is a wealth of knowledge. Also, don't be intimidated, give him a budget and he'll make great recommendations. If you stay the night, your room also includes breakfast the next morning. Our reservation included the full breakfast. The breakfast is amazing and starts with fresh fruit, pastries and amazing juices that they blend on site. My last comment, and this may sound surprising, is that the Inn is actually a good deal. Our room, middle of the week, was about $1300 including tax/gratuities (excluding alcohol at dinner). That included dinner for two and upgraded breakfast. Dinner alone is over $200/pp. When you factor in the five star accommodations, afternoon tea, dinner, and breakfast it's a good deal. (by comparison, MiniBar in DC is $275/pp prior to tax/gratuity/alcohol) At the Inn, you're basically paying $600 for dinner and $600-700 for the room. For this level of service that is a good deal.

WOW!

Nov 12th, 2019

What an unbelievable experience. Veryt interesting place! Hard to describe: It’s a Michelin Star restaurant. Ridiculously expensive, but it's totally the experience. What you think is five, six, or seven courses becomes like 10. The wait staff is actually quite young, but super professional. They cater to you from the beginning to the end and just keep on surprising you: Pre-printed menus with your name on it and happy birthday wishes: Little house filled with candies at the end, extras on extras: It just didn't stop. Everybody there around us was celebrating some kind of monumental moment, either a birthday or an anniversary. Place actually is quite large, but all private like rooms. Fire pits on the outside: just a great experience. Definitely need a second mortgage after you're done paying the bill, but worth it for a once in a lifetime experience. Make sure you get Cameron the cheese guy: He's a total trip!! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Excellent Service, Excellent Presentation of Food

Nov 10th, 2019

Received a gift certificate to go here - typically could not afford this establishment. Overall food was very good - some items I personally did not care for (Seafood Sausage)- but the quality of the food, the service and the presentation was 2nd to none The Pan Seared Sea Bass - I could eat all day - cooked perfectly. Most of the items were very good - Apparently a pear - outstanding desert. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Best anniversay ever!

Nov 5th, 2019

My wife and I celebrated our first anniversary at the Inn -- with an amazingly delicious dinner and an extremely comfortable room. I believe the restaurant has two Michelin stars, and it was the best dinner we have ever had -- and we have both traveled in Europe. We plan to return for our next anniversary. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
