Though you may not find all of these languages within the concierge, The Inn at Little Washington’s staff members speak a total of 13 languages. Whether you need someone to translate the menu into Thai or you want to brush up on your Kenyan, all you have to do is say so. You’ll also find staff members that speak French, German, Italian, Spanish and Japanese. Of course these are just the mainstream languages that you are more likely to know.
In addition to the five major languages, there’s a staff member at The Inn at Little Washington who can welcome you in your native tongue of Romanian, Hungarian and Bulgarian. If you are making the longer trek from Kenya, you have no need to worry about the language barrier during your stay, as there is someone on the staff who is fluent in Kasigau. If you get the urge to brush up on your Thai or Scottish while you are in Washington, Virginia, feel free to ask the concierge who speaks those languages in the house so you can practice all you want.
When you sit down for breakfast, your menu of homemade seasonal jams and jellies is complete with “good morning” in the 13 languages spoken at The Inn at Little Washington.
