While we were staying at Porches, my daughter had a terrible stomach flu and Chris, who was working that night, could not have been more helpful. He came by about five or six times to help us, and even brought us directions to the ER because our cell service was not working. It was a horrible experience, but I never...

Dear providencegirl, Thank you for recognizing our staff. We consider ourselves very lucky to have Chris working for us--he's genuine, diligent and unfailingly upbeat. And did you know that he's also a part-time teacher at the vocational school here in North Adams? Two additional employees deserving of shout-outs are Madalin in our housekeeping department and Glenn in laundry; she's a...

Dear Guest, We're delighted that you enjoyed our outdoor amenities, namely the heated pool, hot tub and fire pit. You also mention our location--our most notable outdoor amenity, although we can't take credit for it, is the natural beauty of the Berkshires, in particular Mt. Greylock State Reservation, a 12,000-acre park which includes the highest peak in Massachusetts, a summit...

We heard about The Porches from a co-worker who stays regularly. We were not disappointed!! From check in to check out; this was one of the most pleasant and relaxing experiences we've had in all of our travels. The entire property is well appropriately appointed and very well kept. The inside of the main house, where we stayed was spotless...

One of a kind hotel with a real fireplace and cat in the lobby for a wonderful homey feeling. Hot tub and pool are open in the winter which is terrific. Breakfast is low key but pleasant and the rooms are very comfortable.

We had a sisters weekend in the western part of MA. Neat hotel across the street from MoCA. Delicious cookies, a fireplace and a comfy bed in a quirky house. Very close to downtown and had very nice amenities. We will be back!

We made a reservation to stay in a standard room with a queen bed and private porch on April 1 for $199. When we arrived, we were given a room with a king bed and no porch. When I raised my concern about the obvious downgrade with the manager, he said that $199 was the going rate for the room...

Dear Mr. Trautman, Thank you for your recent stay and the feedback. In the hotel industry, it is very common practice to make changes in the room categories until the guests arrive as long as the guests are not downgraded. After I searched your booking, I have found out that your original room category was a Deluxe Standard Queen bed...

We visited with our daughter, who loves the pool and hot tub at Porches, and will even put up with hours of gallery hopping in exchange. The pool is heated, so even if the weather's not cooperating, you can still swim.

The room that we had was nice enough. Cute antique items and a big bathroom. BUT, beware this property is at the edge of a busy road and if you are a light sleeper it will be a major challenge if you are in a front room which we were. What was particularly disappointing is that we specifically asked for...

We loved Porches. It's within walking distance to great art, great food, and the hot tub and heated ppol are wonderful even in the snow. It's a perfect place to start and end the day and I would definitely stay here if you're visiting MASS MoCA and The Clark.

We attended a matinee drama performance at Williams College, a mere five miles away, so instead of a hurried trip down and back we decided to stay two nights at The Porches. The nostalgia of yesteryear décor was intriguing enough to make us want to experience a stay here. Old framed photos of stern-looking people from the early 1900s, statuary...
