I stayed at the Linden Row Inn for two nights while visiting Richmond during the holidays. It may be leaning on its historic designation too heavily.
VALUE: The price on Hotwire was very reasonable for this hotel. Note that this place is particularly easy to deduce on opaque sites like Hotwire and Priceline, because it's basically the only property in Richmond described as "historic".
LOCATION: To the extent that you want to be in downtown Richmond, the location is excellent. However, because we are talking about downtown Richmond, there is not much of interest in the immediate vicinity.
SLEEP QUALITY: Adequate. No noise problems, but the rooms themselves do not put you in the mood to sleep.
ROOMS: The access to our room was more akin to a motel. The room was a bit rustic, which is to be expected from an historic property, but it felt as though the management was using that as an excuse to avoid doing renovations.
CLEANLINESS: No issues here.
SERVICE: Staff were courteous and breakfast was well stocked. No problems storing my luggage on the day of my departure.
Historic hotels like this, if properly maintained, are nice departures from ubiquitous chains, especially in mid-sized cities. However, if left as is, they simply feel old. The Linden Row Inn is somewhere in the middle of this spectrum.
