"Back at the Linden - still the best place in Richmond"

5
Jonathan K, Virginia 19/11/2020

During the past two years I have stayed at the Linden well over 50 times. When the pandemic started in March, I stopped coming into Richmond but starting in July I resumed my regular trips. At first I was leery about staying just about anywhere, and then thought maybe I should stay at a chain place in terms of COVID protections. But ended up back at the Linden, and they have done a tremendous job of managing safety while continuing to be the best and most comfortable place to stay in Richmond.

"Lovely place."

This is the second time I have stayed with them -- the rooms are comfortable and good size, and clean. The location is good. The staff is really wonderful. I especially appreciate the outdoor area within their space during the pandemic.

"Raven Review of the Poe-tel"

User 28/10/2020

Loved my stay here. The first was for a night in a quaint and cozy courtyard room, the grounds are well maintained, and the staff is very accommodating. It's the small details really - I asked for throw blanket from the front desk and was given the most comfortable wonderfully smelling blanket. Also, the soap, in which I'm planning on calling the hotel to get the name of. My second stay was in one of the bigger two person rooms, which was very roomy with high ceilings. This hotel maintains the integrity of infrastructure while highlighting Richmonds unique historic charm. P.S. covid-tip, this hotel also maintains an unspoken rule of keeping the rooms empty for what I believe to be 48 hours between guests as pre-caution.

Savara Hospitality, Owner at Linden Row Inn, responded to this review

"A Welcomed Oasis In Downtown Richmond"

Randy K, Atlanta, Georgia 28/10/2020

We selected Richmond as a approximate halfway point in our drive from Albany, NY to Atlanta. We were looking for a place with charm, comfort and character as sort of a splurge to self. We found it in the Linden Row Inn. It is a higher end affiliate of the Best Western chain. The property itself dates from the 1800's with ties to the Edgar Alan Poe family. The rooms have a charm dating back to that era yet, maintaining comfortable contemporary standards. The staff always provided for our needs. Despite a small wedding party given the age of Covid we were provided a quiet room. Despite rhe restaurant being booked solid, the staff provided a take out option where we ate in one of the parlors. The entrees of shrimp and grits and crab cakes were tasty and filling. Only saw two issues, parking in the area is limited to on street or a local pay parking deck. Also, would recommend staying in the hotel after dark given the array of street culture one may encounter outside.

Savara Hospitality, Owner at Linden Row Inn, responded to this review
We want to thank you for taking the time to write this detailed review. We are thrilled that you were able to discover Linden Row on your trip down to Atlanta and enjoyed your stay with us, from our guest rooms to the food from our on-site restaurant, Parterre. We hope you will come to stay with us again should your travels bring you back to Richmond!

Setting and service was exceptional. COVID restrictions were well maintained while guests felt honored. Manager and staff incredibly responsive. Will stay here whenever we can. On site restaurant serves weekend brunch, recommend reservations or takeout as courtyard seating is limited.

"Always a go-to stay when in Richmond"

User 26/10/2020

Perfectly located near downtown and convenient to restaurants. I enjoy a morning run down Franklin and Monument Avenue, and Linden Row is in a perfect spot for that. Like anywhere else downtown, parking can be tricky depending on what time you arrive. With no valet due to COVID-19, you'll want to plan ahead and prepare to walk a block or two from your car.

Savara Hospitality, Owner at Linden Row Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for your review and for choosing Linden Row Inn as your go-to stay in Richmond! Our location to in the downtown Richmond Arts District is appreciated by our guests, and it is great to hear that we offer the perfect spot for your morning runs! We can't wait to welcome you back for your next visit.

"When In Richmond, Choose Linden Row"

User 12/10/2020

My wife and I have been coming to Linden Row for 5+ years whenever we visit Richmond. The staff is always incredibly kind and attentive, and have gone above and beyond when we are celebrating our anniversary. The rooms are gorgeous, and the courtyard makes you feel like you aren't in the middle of a city. It is centrally located, and the staff always has great recommendations for bars and restaurants. Please do yourself a favor and stay here whenever you can!

Novatraveler4, purcellville 05/10/2020

Stayed on a Friday evening and had a beautiful, large room. Loved the ambience of the hotel and the interactions with hotel staff--everyone was extremely friendly and welcoming. Room and common areas were spotless. Really enjoyed the charm of the hotel and location in downtown Richmond.

"Nice and Upgraded Vintage Hotel in Downtown Richmond"

User 30/09/2020

I found this hotel when looking for a hotel that we can stay during the day (hotelsbyday.com) while waiting for our dog to have a surgery at the Helping Hands Affordable Vet Surgery Center. The hotel has a vintage look outside but it is nice, clean, and upgraded inside. The room was roomy that had 2 queen beds, the beds are nice. The staff was flexible to accommodate us for an early check-in. Shower was nice with nice toiletries. Wifi connection is not that great, it connected with no issues in the hallway, but connection dropped constantly when staying the room. I will stay here again. Highly recommended.

EdwardL259, Naples, Florida 29/09/2020

The Parlor Suite was perfect for our experience. It is a perfectly placed gem right downtown, central for our experience. We felt safe, with the rooms facing a courtyard ... and a rocking chair on the porch. The feel of the Deep South is part of history, good and bad, and this hotel gave me the feel of what was good about that history.

"Lovely little hotel in the heart of downtown Richmond"

FamilyE3, Palmer Springs Virginia 28/09/2020

Our weekend stay here was so very nice and exactly what we were looking for. It was a quick getaway for our anniversary and we were so pleased. We were greeted warmly at the front desk and the clerk there was able to offer dinner recommendations in the area. We stayed in one of the Main House Rooms and the room was beautiful and the spa bathroom was to die for. There was a surprise waiting for us when we entered our room, a Linden Row Inn mug filled with truffles! And a happy anniversary note from the staff. We had planned to go out for dinner but we couldn't resist the convenience and the atmosphere of Parterre. (Don't miss out on the pork skins and jalapeño pimento cheese! ) The service and food were outstanding, and were only heightened by the atmosphere. Our room was HUGE and the bed was so comfy with all of the pillows, which I loved. The climate control kept the room at a perfect temp and I had a great nights' sleep. I would absolutely recommend this hotel without hesitation, and we will be back!

"A dreamy Richmond weekend in the times of COVID"

Jay P, Washington DC, District of Columbia 23/09/2020

This is a wonderful hotel in a great location in Richmond. The hotel itself has many outdoor spaces, including the dining area, where you can meet with friends or just read a book in a rocking chair. It's low profile make walking up the stairs (half outside if you prefer) easy vs having to get in an elevator. The rooms are large and roomy with wonderful furniture that compliment comfort and the historic inn experience. They are a pleasant walk to the riverfront trails and around the corner from a roof-top bar (get a rez). Across the street is a bikeshare stand and the bikes are electric! Perfect for riding through VCU and the historic cemetery that is on a large hill. I hope to make the Linden Row Inn my go-to home base for future visits to Richmond.

Savara Hospitality, Owner at Linden Row Inn, responded to this review

What a wonderful find for our first trip to Richmond. The hotel was clean and spacious with a lot of beautiful touches. We enjoyed the outside decks and the rocking chairs that were located all along them. It was a nice place to unwind after a long day exploring Richmond. Would definitely recommend the Lindon Row Inn as your place to stay in Richmond.

Savara Hospitality, Owner at Linden Row Inn, responded to this review

"Average room and mediocre wifi service"

ER N, alexandria, Virginia 22/09/2020

We spent two nights here on a short visit to the art museum and Mayfair gardens, choosing it rather than a chain hotel after reading about its history. Pros: Parking nearby was convenient and inexpensive. You need to drive down 3rd Street and turn right on Grace, ignore the $7 for 4 hours and drive in. Pay $7 and put the receipt on the dash for a 24 hour stay. The room was large with a queen bed, decent lighting, lounge chair, ottoman, another easy chair, desk and desk chair, refrigerator, microwave, TV, and coffee machine. There was a closet in the small hall with two hangers and a wardrobe in the room with six hangers. The room faced the street but was quiet in the evenings and early mornings. There was good hot water for the shower. Amenities included two sets of towels, soaps, shampoo, shower gel, and lotion. The room had plenty of outlets and one by the bed included two USB ports. There are two comfortable sitting areas downstairs. We found a good deli for breakfast around the corner on Grace Street and had a perfectly acceptable dinner at Tarrant's Café on our first night. Staff is friendly. Cons: Wifi was practically non-existent in the room! Per advice from reception, we took the laptop and smart phones to the lobby in order to login. After returning to the room, nothing connected. If we opened the door and sat on the steps outside the room, we could get a faint connection. Otherwise, any connection was erratic and feeble. The mattress sags in the middle and needs to be replaced. We could hear people walking and talking in the room above ours on our first night. It was unoccupied and therefore quiet the second night. The take-out food from their restaurant is practically inedible; they must use frozen hamburger patties, potatoes, and buns. Everything tasted bland and was completely overcooked. (We only used their take-out because the hurricane's drenching downpour our second evening prevented anyone from venturing out.) Because of Covid-19, there is no housekeeping service, which we did not realize until returning in the afternoon. It would be nice if there were a message in the room advising us of the absence of housekeeping service and what to do. We had to request replacement towels, bathroom amenities and coffee fixings. If wifi is not important or necessary and you get a quiet and comfortable room, this is an acceptable, somewhat modest hotel with character.

We had a great stay here! Rooms are well kept and a great size, great distance from a lot of places, and all of the staff was wonderful, including Michael who helped us a ton when we got in late with a smooth check in and recommendations on where to go. Definitely staying here if we come back!

User 09/09/2020

Every little bit from the outside, to the reception desk, to our room was incredible. Linden Row has really kept the historical touches so well and makes you feel so comfortable. The rooms were very spacious and well kept. The high ceilings made the room feel even larger. We will 100% be staying here again on our next visit to Richmond!

"History brought to life - with plenty of room!"

User 16/08/2020

We've stayed at Linden Rowe twice. First time was the night of our wedding, before leaving town for the Honeymoon. To me, it's the perfect combination of historic old-timey feel and large unique rooms without the super expensive bill. Makes you feel like you're back in Edgar Allen Poe times. Restaurant / bar downstairs is quaint, not related to the hotel so you can't charge to your room, but they do a great job. Each room has been pretty different from the previous.

Savara Hospitality, Owner at Linden Row Inn, responded to this review
Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review.

From the moment we stepped through the door at Linden Row, our experience was top-notch! They are quite attentive to the current requirements of the times, and that is evident from the pens on the counter, to the elevator reminders, to the sanitizer available on each floor, among other things. The front desk clerk was exceptionally pleasant and kind. Our assigned room was on the fourth floor - a quick elevator ride up to an outdoor walkway, then past lovely rocking chairs and through the doors to our room. The room itself was MASSIVE, with luxurious, high beds, plenty of comfy pillows, high ceilings, a HUGE tv above the historic fireplace, along with a Keurig, microwave, and mini-fridge. And that's not it! The bathroom, too, was gigantic, with a tub/shower combo (exceptionally clean!) ample towels, and fabulous-smelling bath products by Archive. The shower pressure, too, was wonderful, with plenty of hot water :-)) On top of all that, wifi is free and reliable. After a short walk to Capital Ale House for dinner, we returned to the room and our plush beds. My son fell asleep almost immediately - he "blames" it on the extraordinarily comfortable mattress and bedding ;-)) After a long day of travel, it was just what we needed!! If you're looking for a lovely hotel stay, and a hotel with all the BEST kind of "character", then this is your spot. Added bonuses are the staff friendliness, and attentiveness to the needs of the times. Well done, Linden Row!

Staff were bright and cheerful, not cloying. Got me into the room almost instantly. Parking valet out of service due to Covid-19 (of course), but garage was a quick walk next door. Room was cozy and bathroom totally modernized with great water pressure. The location was a short walk from Perly's Diner, a great Jewish deli-themed eatery, and the hotel's restaurant, Parterre, was a wonderful treat right next door. I don't generally leave reviews, but I do when the staff is genuinely pleasant. Thanks, Linden!

"Great Historic Inn"

RetireWorldTraveller, Melbourne, Florida 15/07/2020

One night stay in Richmond. We wanted a boutiwue hotel in the historic district and Linden Row was perfect solution. Ante Bellum row house combined to make wonderful hotel with beautiful multi level garden and patio. Our room was spacious with period tall ceilings and roomy bath. Older furnishing could be spruced up a bit but all clean and comfy. We did take out because that's all the nearby restaurants offered during Covid. We got a bottle of wine and ate a leid=surely dinne on the wrought iron furniture on the garden patio. Really want to return when common areas are open to enjoy the historic building completyely. The checkin was sterile and clean. The hotel is following the guidelines. All the staff is polite and eager to help.
