What a wonderful hotel. The customer service was fantastic. We came to visit Williams for our daughter, but will be back for a romantic getaway...for sure. There was good room for us and the kids and we loved the double sinks, room space and charm of the appointments in the room. We had Sunday dinner at the Gala and although...

We made a last minute decision to stay at The Orchards. What a wonderful decision! It turned out to be one of the most memorable vacations ever! It all started and ended with Mitch. He assisted us with the initial reservation and advised us about various events in the area. The hotel itself is marvelous; however, it all starts and...

Great hotel, spacious and well appointed rooms. They had a roaring fireplace with comfy couches and tea and snacks every afternoon. Chocolate Chip cookies left in your room once you cam back was a particularly nice touch. Staff was very accommodating and courteous. Mitch at the front desk was incredibly helpful and friendly at every turn. Only 20 minutes from...

This is a lovely hotel in Williamstown. We reserved one of the fireplace rooms, because we were escaping cabin fever at home (outside Boston) in winter. The room was large and very nice.

The Orchards is a stone's throw from Williams College, just off Route 2 which runs through the school. We stayed for two nights while skiing at Jiminy Peak, about a half hour away. There are closer hotels, but availability is usually better and cheaper around Williamstown and we like the college atmosphere. The Orchards is a charming smaller hotel, built...
