If you’re a fan of the mini-bar, then you better book one of the several suites that has one at Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star The Inn at Little Washington. As a nice little perk of upgrading to a suite, you can enjoy refreshments at any hour, without having to call room service. You’ll have to book one of the two bi-level suites, Room 16 or the Claiborne House (also known as the Presidential Cottage) to enjoy a mini-bar. You’ll find those adorable glass bottles of Coca-Cola, Diet Coke and Sprite, as well as bottled water — both flat and sparkling. If you decide that you want something else to go with your soft drink, just call down to the concierge or in-room dining and they’ll take care of you.
The Claiborne House doesn’t just offer a mini-bar; you’ll have an entire kitchen. That being said, you can take advantage of this perk and arrange for one of the chefs from The Inn at Little Washington restaurant to come prepare a Five-Star meal for you. The standard rooms, unfortunately, do not have mini-bars, but you can always call room service, which is available 24 hours a day. So if it’s a necessity, make sure to let the staff know when you are booking your room. We think the upgrade is totally worth it.
