In the Northern Berkshires of Williamstown, Mass., the Williams Inn opened as a new three-story, 58,000-square-foot, 64-room property. Inspired by the architectural vernacular of New England, the inn is positioned at the town center, and was designed to fit into the community.
The Williams Inn is operated by Waterford Hotel Group. Cambridge-based architecture and design firm, CambridgeSeven, oversaw the architecture and design of the property.
The Williams Inn has a restaurant and bar, a fitness center, and a combined 3,200 square feet of meeting and event space with natural lighting and transitional indoor/outdoor options. The exterior features a 3,500-square-foot greenspace that can be tented for seasonal outdoor functions.
The inn's 62-seat restaurant, The Barn, is run by executive chef Kevin DeMarco previously of Newport Restaurant Group. It has two private dining spaces in addition to seasonal outdoor dining.
Contemporary art pieces were integrated into the property, ranging from paintings and photography to sculptures and pottery created by area artists.
The property is located close to The Clark Art Institute, Tanglewood, the Norman Rockwell Museum, Mass MoCA, the Williams College Museum of Art and Jacob's Pillow. In addition, the inn is adjacent to the Taconic Golf Club.
Kevin Hurley is the general manager of the inn.
