Wm Farmer and Sons Boarding & Barroom
Ranked #2 of 17 Hudson B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 November 2017

During our wedding weekend in Hudson, we used Wm Farmer as the base hotel for our closest friends -- we could not have been happier with the choice.

Shannon and the Wm Farmer team were extremely accommodating in the build-up, receiving packages, dropping welcome baskets in the rooms before our guests arrived and getting us space in the bar for drinks on Friday night.

When renting out all the rooms, Wm Farmer becomes the optimal mix of a hotel and house; the rooms offer the comforts associated with hotels, and the shared spaces are huge and comfortable for hanging out in groups.

My wife and I stayed in The Fawkner @ the Merchant House, which provided ton of space, great views and the charming design found throughout all their rooms. Our friends all raved about their individual rooms, and everyone who ate at the restaurant had similarly good things to say.

Thinking back on the wedding weekend, some of the best memories took place at the hotel. Wm Farmer & Sons will always have a special place in our hearts, and we'll be visiting again soon.

Room Tip: Merchant House is great for groups, also for pre-wedding photos

We stayed at the end of September on a Sunday night for one night in the Abigail Suite. The bed was large and very comfy. The aesthetic of the room was superb. Lovely getaway (we were traveling from Boston,) from city life. Hudson has great restaurants and the surrounding area is very charming. It was so nice to have dinner (also fantastic) and cocktails and then just walk upstairs to our room. The streets right by the restaurant/hotel are a bit run down but you are only steps away from the main street with restaurants/shops/cafes.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience! We are glad you enjoyed both your stay in The Abigail and your meal in the Barroom. In regard to our neighborhood, the beauty of Hudson is its revitalization and one of the aspects we are most proud of is the mixed demographic. In fact, Hudson is a recent recipient of a Governor Cuomo's Downtown Revitalization Initiative, which will be focusing on the Bridge District, where Wm. Farmer and Sons is located! It's an exciting time in Hudson!

My wife and I loved Farmer and Sons. Our room was perfect. The decor was great. We enjoyed the oyster happy hour and the awesome cocktail menu at the restaurant. Will be back for sure on our next trip to Hudson.

My husband and I recently spent a weekend in The Pint at Wm Farmer and Sons. We were greeted warmly from the minute we arrived and met with nothing but kindness during our stay. We loved The Pint - the decor was on point, the ease of getting around fantastic and really loved the B&B vibe the whole Wm Farmer and Sons collective gave. We had dinner one night at the restaurant and had a great meal. It seemed every time we were on the street we ran into one of the GMs or other hosts - always a smile, always an inquiry as to how we were finding everything. Hudson is a charming town and this property an even more charming place to call home for a few nights during your stay. Will come again!

Room Tip: The Pint would be great even for two couples or a family - the full kitchen is a bonus.

This small hotel and bar/restaurant is wonderful! We stayed in the James Louis Suite for the weekend and we absolutely loved it.

Here are some of the great things about Wm. Farmer:

1. Location is terrific - right near the river, less than 2 blocks from the train station, less than 2 blocks from the main street with all the shops and restaurants.

2. The people are so friendly and helpful! Everyone we encountered, from check-in to check-out and in the restaurant, was super nice and helpful.

3. The rooms are beautiful and well-appointed - the room is stocked more like a day spa than a hotel room. They give you things that you wouldn't expect these days from a hotel, like shampoo, shower gel, Qtips, cotton swabs, ear plugs! The bed linens are luxurious and the bed was very comfortable. Check out the website before you book - the photos are very true to real life, in a good way. There was also a bar in our room with mini bar offerings, a coffee machine, and an extra sink - so great!

4. The tech is amazing for an old building. Our room had an awesome TV with Dish Network, excellent free WiFi, and an air conditioning unit that worked well. Plus, there are no keys - you get a code to open the front door and your suite door, which is so much easier and you never have to worry about losing or deactivating your key!

A few things to keep in mind that weren't amazing, but were totally ok:

1. The lighting in the bathrooms is not great for putting on makeup, so consider bringing a makeup light or makeup mirror.

2. It's a really old building, so there is no elevator and the stairways are reallllly narrow, so pack light.

3. Parking is street parking only, and the overnight parking rules are overcomplicated and confusing. We didn't have a problem finding a spot, but it took a lot of thought to figure out which side of the street we could park on at which time.

Overall, we LOVED out stay at Wm. Farmer & Sons and we would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Hudson!
