I have traveled 3 times from Connecticut to have dinner at Gala Restaurant. On my last visit, it began to snow upon my arrival to Gala. During dinner, the manager came through the restaurant to let the patrons know that the Mass state police had issued a 3 hour warning for driving conditions. I decided to check with the hotel...

My boyfriend and I decided to take a getaway before Christmas and wanted to leave Boston for the Berkshires. I got the Mass MoCA package and it was just wonderful. It was very quiet as we arrived just before Christmas and it was heaven. It was definitely a lot older than I expected, but not in a bad way. We... More

Husband and I stayed overnight at the Orchards on December 30th. We booked the "Couples Escape" package. Just wanted something within driving distance of upstate NY and this location was perfect for us.

I wanted to like this property more and I hope that some day I will. But this is another of my tales of 2 hotels. In this case, the 2 sides are not just his and hers but also day and night.

After staying in several of the motels in the Williamstown area during our son's tenure at Williams College, somehow we saved the best for last. Of course, one must pay a bit more for better accommodations, but our one night stay truly seemed more like a mini-vacation than other weekend trips to the area. I relaxed in our very spacious...

Stayed at the Orchards for the second year in a row at Christmas time. The staff is always welcoming. The rooms are large and comfortable (each room has a door bell, which my wife found charming). Great common room with fireplace, coffee and tea available all the time. The Gala restaurant is great, will document that in another review.

Nestled in the Berkshires the Orchard Hotel reflects the essence of this old college town. The unique architecture starts at the welcoming entrance and carries through to spacious rooms with gas fired fireplaces that add to a unique relaxing stay. The Gala Steakhouse restaurant and pub are the icing on the cake. The menu is eclectic and the service is... More
