“Historical but interior a bit shabby”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We enjoyed our one night stay at the Linden Row Inn. We were in town for the Chihuly exhibit at VMFA.
The room was quiet. No noise from other guests. A litte street noise but less than a typical day since it was MLK Jr holiday.
Our room could use sprucing up. Tired looking bedding. Water spots on ceiling. We chose the Inn specifically for its historical charm and were happy with it in that aspect.

Room Tip: I'd recommend the top floor to minimize street noise.

Thank you for your candid review of the Linden Row Inn. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us, and are sorry to hear that aspects of our interior were not up to par. We are continuously making improvements to the property (for example, we've just completed a revamp of our Parlour Lobby) and hope that you will see some changes during a future visit to the property!

Wasn't sure what to expect and was pleasantly surprised. Charming. Old --- but not tired.
Friendly and accomodating. Deffinately will be back. Interesting history. Breakfast could improve; however, everything we needed.

We stayed at the Linden Row Inn the first part and January and loved it. We had a room in the old part because several TA reviews had recommended that the few dollars more were worth it. Our room was huge--twice the size of a normal hotel room. The bath was completely modern. The inn is a 20 min walk from everything in Richmond. Or, if you don't want the exercise, there is a van that will pick you up and drop you off anywhere within a two mile radius. We also discovered an upscale restaurant, Chez Foushee', only a block away. All in all, a great place to stay.

We had a lovely stay downtown at the Linden. Fine dining within walking distance. We walked over to the Jefferson and had a great time gawking at the five star lobby. After that the Linden did look a little old and run down but in a lovely, Richmondy kind of way. It's a Southern shabby chic bed and breakfast. We got our room for $80 on living social.com. For the money it has a fantastic location, huge rooms and walkable downtown.

We came for a visit to see the Chihuly art exhibit at the Virginia Fine Arts Museum. We had a lovely room, a nice breakfast, in a great location with helpful staff. We enjoyed the visit. We had lunch at Amuse, a wonderful restaurant in the Museum and dinner at Tarrants an equally wonderful restaurant....We will be back.

To keep it short: I can not understand the issues some people have with this hotel. It is charming and clean. Staff was very helpful. There might be better locations. But they have a complimentary shuttle. Would stay there again.

Stayed for two nights, and no real complaints. Hotel is well-priced, love the high ceilings, and love the write-up on the history of the place. Super comfortable beds, Ceilings are ridiculously high and the rooms are much larger than average. The Television was a bit on the fritz, but we’re not much of TV watchers on the road anyways. Staff was extremely helpful, valet ($12/day) and the shuttle service was big plus as well. Breakfasts are adequate, nothing too fancy, there is a waffle maker, and there are a selection of pastries and cereals – no complaints. Coffee is advertised as available around the clock, but the few times we went to fill-up, it was empty. As you can see – only minor grievances; The Linden Row is a fantastic choice for downtown Richmond, and about half the cost of the Jefferson – which is a 2 block walk away.

Thank you for writing a review about your recent stay in one of the Main House rooms at the Linden Row Inn. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us.

We do apologize for running out of coffee. Our 24-hour coffee service is rather popular, and the pot sometimes finishes up before we get a chance to replenish it. Needless to say, our Front Desk is always happy to make a fresh pot upon request.

We look forward to seeing you again soon!
