I enjoyed the hotel and the location. It's across the street from many great attractions such as the museum and a brewery. Most restaurants were at the most a 5 minute drive. You could walk if wanted. I had a massive room in the red building. Each room's TV was equipped with wifi so you are able to watch Netflix....

I am so glad my husband and I chose to stay at The Porches Inn! The two of us desperately needed to get away and we wanted to incorporate our love of the arts into every aspect of our stay. The hotel was conveniently located - we were just a stone's throw away from Mass MoCa (which was amazing), Williamstown,...

We have been to Porches several times. We have always enjoyed the heated pool and hot tub especially in the winter as well as the Sauna. We have had some fun times sitting at the fire pit or on the hill above the pit. The rooms are always clean, comfortable (sometimes too much my sister did not want to get...

After hearing from a couple of friends/acquaintances about how wonderful this inn is, I decided to book it for a weekend getaway from Boston. If you love interior design and appreciate kitschy, but tasteful decor you will LOVE this inn. It was so cozy and very clean. The staff was incredibly kind and helpful. I enjoyed breakfast, although it wasn't...

The Porches has an interesting history making it unique and conveniently located to Mass MOCA and museums in Williamstown. The funky and fun decor is a perfect complement to the museum across the street as it doesn't take itself too seriously! Our room was comfortable and more than adequate for our two night stay. Given the 20 degree temperature we...

Dear nancyinct2016, We appreciate your business and your positive feedback. Funky is a good word to describe us, given our history as blue-collar housing and the regular musical programming at MASS MoCA across the way. You really should return to the Berkshires this summer, when the museum's gallery space will have doubled in size and will feature exciting new installations...

The Porches is not your usual hotel stay, and that's the point. It is an intimate, art inspired re-imagining of industrial housing that is comfortable and unique. The staff is very friendly and add to the welcoming atmosphere. I loved unwinding by the fire at the Pop-up bar and meeting a few other travelers. I stayed here while my daughter...

They know how to host at The Porches! Here's a list of some of what we experienced: Fresh baked cookies at the check-in desk (I'm always a sucker for these, especially after a drive), very helpful, down to earth, casually dressed staff that made us feel immediately at home, totally cozy Pottery Barn style room (simple, elegant, comfortable), firm comfortable...

Visited museums and decided to spend the night here at a "historic hotel". Not quite what I had expected. I would call the decor 'shabby chic'. I guess the interior was designed to reflect the original use of these attached houses and places for mill workers. The single window sized curtains were hung by a string run through grommets. The...

Dear Swampmimi, We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed our decor, bedding and complimentary continental breakfast.
