My wife and I decided to spend a weekend in Richmond visiting the museums and historic places before the Christmas holidays. I had read the good reviews about Linden Row on Trip advisor and decided to try it out for the first time. I am very happy with the decision I made. The Inn just happened to be in a near central location to most of Richmond's historic attractions (Confederate White House, Edgar Allen Poe museum, Hollywood cemetery, Richmond Museum of Arts, etc.) as well as some popular shopping districts.
The room was very clean, quiet, and decorated beautifully. Because of the season deal I was able to receive online (their website) for our weekend stay, I splurged extra $ for wine and chocolate truffles to be placed in our room as part of my reservation. My wife really enjoyed both items (extra points for me!!!). The continental breakfast was the usual simple fare (cereal, fruit, pastries, waffles, etc.). I would suggest the valet service due to the limited parking spaces around the area of the inn. For the daily fee it was worth it (unlimited in & out until 10pm) because the inn uses a nearby (across the street) private/reserved parking garage. All you have to do is call the front desk and let them know when you want to use your vehicle. Linden Row also offers a shuttle service to take you anywhere within a 3 mile radius of the inn.
The staff at Linden Row was very professional, courteous, and helpful with providing us with tips on where to go and what to do with the limited time we had in the city (We did take up several of their suggestions which made our stay that much more enjoyable). One evening, when my wife and I were picked up by the shuttle service in a popular shopping district (where we were dropped off hours earlier) we had to take a different street route (due to construction and evening traffic) back to the Inn and ended up receiving our own guided tour of Monument Avenue. Our driver pointed out and explained every historical monument to us as we crept along in street traffic heading back to the Inn!
My wife and plan on coming back to Linden Row Inn for more future weekend stays in Richmond. I can't wait to see the courtyard in full bloom in the spring time.
