After a memorable experience three years ago, we decided to come back for another anniversary celebration...we also decided to upgrade to a larger room with a small sitting area. With taxes, the room was over $800, and ridiculously overpriced. We've stayed in lovely hotels all over the country, and this one, although the staff and service are impeccable, simply doesn't match the cost being charged. The room is nicely appointed. period. Our room did have a small balcony and we walked out to view our surroundings--the parking lot in front of the hotel! I've stayed at 5 star hotels all over the country for half the price here --with views of ocean, rolling hills, mountains, major monuments-- a parking lot view for $800?
Finally, a good night's sleep is top on my list of what's important-- The whirling of a vacuum cleaner going full blast at 6 AM on Sunday morning just beneath our room was quite a wake up call.
We'll definitely be back for dinner but not the lodging.
- 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
