No. 19 Inn at Little Washington, Washington, VA
This 18-room inn describes itself not as a hotel, but as “the private home of someone who likes to entertain a lot.” London stage and set designer Joyce Evans has added a theatrical flair to each of the rooms, individually decorated with sumptuous materials. The staff work at both the hotel and the property’s AAA Five Diamond restaurant, so guests see familiar faces throughout their stay. It’s enough to make this tiny town (70 miles from D.C.) a destination in its own right.
