I had never heard of Linden Row Inn before booking our stay but was excited to experience staying in an historical inn. The inn is beautiful, full of Richmond history and charm! The staff went above and beyond to make our stay an enjoyable one! The continental breakfast was more than I expected, they even had a waffle station. The... More

Room was large and decor was fabulous. Bathroom was modern and clean. Breakfast was adequate and staff were helpful. Only real complaint is that some of the antiques used to furnish the place really showed their age and there was some dust in the room and bobbie pins all over the floor from a previous guest.

I love historical inns, or anything that has a historical charm, but sadly I was not a fan of Linden Row. I was expecting historic charm, what I got was old musty building that requires a lot more money to be dumped into it before it gets there. I had been wanting to visit LRow for years, since ive tried... More

The Linden Row Inn provides a change of pace from typical chain hotels. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. The air conditioning worked perfectly--which is critical for a summer stay in Richmond. The old-fashioned parlor which serves as a lobby is comfortable as well. The porches overlooking the courtyard could be very inviting, but they need to be spruced... More

This hotel is actually a set of joined row houses - it's beautiful to look at on the outside, and the outside is a good indication of what you'll get on the inside, which is a well-preserved, historic hotel, with rather stiff Victorian furniture. Aside from the formality, however, this hotel is very comfortable and pretty affordable. The historical significance... More

Thank you for your detailed review of the Linden Row Inn. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. We did want to take a moment to clarify that the row homes that comprise Linden Row Inn today were not yet built when a young Edgar Allan Poe played in the garden where the property now sits. We...

Linden Row Inn Is a charming, historical place to stay when visiting downtown Richmond. I have stayed there multiple times over the years since it opened in the 1980's. I highly recommend this Inn. Wonderful staff!

The hotel is comprised of seven row houses built in the mid-1800’s, and meticulously restored over the years. The hotel’s guest rooms are furnished with antiques from the middle and late 1800’s, and the hotel is proud to be featured on the National Register of Historic Places. Edgar Allan Poe spent his childhood playing in the garden that is now the hotel’s garden courtyard, and local legend has it that the property is home to the “enchanted garden” that Poe mentions in his famous poem “To Helen.” ... more   less
