We only stayed one night and had a lovely time exploring the region - the location is very close to Mass MoCA, Williams College and other points of interest. The hotel itself was very quiet and our stay was relaxing even with 2 children (they enjoyed the modest outdoor pool on a hot day). Our room featured 2 comfortable full... More

We loved our visit to Williamstown and the Orchards Hotel seemed the perfect place to stay. Our weekend included a play at the Williamstown Playhouse and a visit to the wonderful Clark Museum all easily reached from the hotel.The hotel has many free amenities. Coffee is always brewing in the morning, tea and dessert at 4PM. The rooms are quite... More

This is a lovely hotel. That being said, they have a beautiful garden area which seems "off limits". Also, I like to have an evening cigarette (would never smoke indoors) and the only option they offer is the parking lot. I know this would not matter to many travelers, but most places at least offer a bench and a receptacle... More

Spent Saturday night here as a place to base our stay for the Williamstown Theater Festival. Got to the hotel at 1:30PM, hoping to check in a bit early (3PM official check in) as we had a show at 3:30PM, they told us our room had been assigned, but was not yet clean, and to check back in an hour...

We have been coming to the Orchards almost every year since it was built. It was once a luxury destination that rose and fell with each new owner. Last year we lamented that this once outstanding luxury destination was in need of another renovation. the management agreed with us, installing new carpeting, painting, and starting to make it eh showplace...

The hotel has large rooms but could use an update. The hallways are very nice but the rooms could be modernized. The bathroom appeared to be from the 70s or 80s. We wanted to go the restaurant for breakfast but were left waiting to be seated with no one in sight so we left. There doesn't appear to be many... More

The hotel was lovely - comfortable bed, coffee in the lobby, and a small pool and fitness center to boot! Was in Williamstown to go to the Playhouse and to the Clark Museum, both well worth it! Probably the nicest the hotel in the area.

We've stayed at The Orchards four times over the years. It has large rooms and a lovely garden, but is sorely in need of an update. Wall coverings are tatty, toilet seats are missing supports, closet doors don't close easily, chairs are too soft to give good support, and the wi-fi signal is unacceptably weak in the guest rooms. And... More

When we arrived, everything seemed nice, the room was very nice. The bathroom had no place to put your shampoos, etc in the shower other than on the floor.
