We had a wonderful visit at the Museum District B&B because of Anna's warm hospitality. Our room was spacious and included a relaxing steam bath. However, what separated this b&b from others we have visited, is that the owner is friendly & generous, and seemed to want to get to know her guests. She even arranged for us have a history tour of Richmond with a neighborhood friend who is also a professor at University of Richmond. After the tour, we enjoyed chatting with Anna and the professor over some quality wine and an excellent and generous cheese selection. Breakfast was ample with freshly made quality croissants & other breads, bacon, eggs, a selection of fruits..... more than I could eat!
The location is great. In fact, it is right across the street from the art museum which is free. It is a short walk to Careytown with interesting shops and restaurants. Two blocks down the street from the b&b is a wonderful restaurant, but I forgot the name.
There are other b&bs with more elaborate furnishings and elegant settings. This b&b is a gem because of Anna. Stay here for her personal touch and a taste of Richmond hospitality.
