Linden Row Inn
Linden Row Inn is a 70-room boutique historic hotel located in the heart of Downtown Richmond located at 1st and Franklin Street. The hotel is comprised of seven row houses built in the mid-1800’s, and meticulously restored over the years. The hotel’s guest rooms are furnished with antiques from the middle and late 1800’s, and the hotel is proud to be featured on the National Registry of Historic Places. We have a beautiful outdoor garden space that is regularly rented out for rehearsal dinners, wedding ceremony and receptions and other private events and adjacent to our Board Room via French Doors which is perfect for smaller, intimate affairs. The Linden Row Inn offers indoor and outdoor event space for weddings, rehearsal dinners, and receptions for up to 125 guests.
Edgar Allan Poe spent his childhood playing in the garden that is now the hotel’s garden courtyard, and local legend has it that the property is home to the “enchanted garden” that Poe mentions in his famous poem “To Helen.”

I cannot say enough positive things about Linden Row Inn and their staff. My wife and I had our ceremony as well as our reception there. On the day after we couldn't stop talking about how wonderful and how perfect our wedding was. It brings tears of joy to my eyes to think about it!
People always say there will be something that goes wrong, but as I look back I can't recall a single detail that was out of line. I cannot begin to express the gratitude we feel toward Linden Row Inn and their staff. On the day of the wedding everyone was so accommodating and did so with a huge smile on their face. However, being one of the brides, and doing a lot of the planning, I want to specifically call out Casey Watson, the Senior Sales Manager. She was easy to work with and knowledgeable; she made me look like a master at this wedding planning thing. My planning process with Casey and their exclusive caterers, The Urban Farmhouse, was stress-free, truly. They kept all of the details straight, kept to my master plan, and treated all of our guests wonderfully. Because the process was so smooth, on the actual day of our wedding, I was so relaxed because I had full faith in the Linden Row staff.
We also had a room block for all of our guests, and my wife and I stayed in the beautifully appointed Parlor Suite. The rooms do not disappoint. They are charming, comfortable and in the heart of our beautiful city.
You must use The Urban Farmhouse as your caterer if you are planning a full reception there. I will write up a separate review for them, but Mat Lloyd and his staff were absolutely phenomenal to work with. I received happy, happy, positive reviews on the food and setting from all the guests.
Honestly, our wedding was the best day of my life and I have Linden Row Inn, The Urban Farmhouse, their staff and all of our vendors to thank. Thank you for giving us the best celebration of our lives.

My wedding at Linden Row Inn couldn't have been better! Not only was the location exactly what we wanted, but it perfectly accommodated our guests. And the staff were so wonderful to work with. From the first email until the end of our reception, they were on-point, hard working and dedicated to making our wedding vision a reality. I would enthusiastically recommend the Linden Row Inn to anyone wanting to get married in a gorgeous urban setting with a vintage feel and a fantastic staff!
We had our daughter's wedding at Linden Row Inn. We booked over half of the hotel rooms for the weekend and had the ceremony and reception in the courtyard. It was an amazing weekend. The hotel and catering staff were so accommodating and no detail went unattended to. We are so glad we chose Linden Row. We highly recommend them!
Great Experience at Linden Row Inn
If you are looking for something intimate for less that 90 people, I highly recommend Linden Row. A cute courtyard hidden in the midst of Richmond, that's private, cozy, and convenient! Price is great for Richmond, staff are pleasant and easy to work with. I really loved that my out of town friends and family (a majority of our guests) could stay at the hotel and not worry about travel.

Our daughter had her wedding and reception at the Linden Row Inn last October. Overall I would give it an A- or B+. The Inn uses The Urban Farmhouse as their exclusive caterer for all events. There is a small café located at the Inn but the restaurant can handle all their on-site catering needs. The food was Delicious! I think it was reasonably priced and nicely presented. As for the actual Inn, our daughter stayed in one of the historic rooms in the old section the night before the wedding with a few bridesmaids. We also reserved the room for her and her groom on their wedding night. I asked that the room be serviced in the afternoon to make it nice for the wedding night. (The wedding was at 3 p.m.) In any case, housekeeping never serviced their room even though they were still there servicing other rooms at that time. The Inn refunded us $25 for the oversight. They only have outdoor space for large groups. The courtyard is nice, not fancy. We rented the Board room in addition for our food service as there was quite a bit of rain and wind that day. The Inn does not have any tenting to cover their outdoor spaces. You have to contract with one of their preferred vendors to rent a tent cover (if desired) The tent vendors are VERY expensive. I really think the Inn needs to purchase some tents and have their own staff put them up and then charge a reasonable fee if you add them on. In all, it was a good experience.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your daughter's wedding weekend here at Linden Row. We are so glad to hear that you enjoyed our in-house cafe & catering through Urban Farmhouse and also appreciate your feedback in regards to the tenting in our outdoor Gardens. We have previously looked into purchasing tents to provide this type of service for our clients, but unfortunately as a Historic Inn we simply do not have the storage space to house the inventory. We are so glad to hear that overall you had a great experience, we loved being a part of Lindsey and Vernon's special day and enjoyed celebrating with your friends and family. We hope to host you again soon!
