Consider The Essex Inn as an alternative to Tappahannock, VA hotels for your Richmond and Williamsburg, Virginia business travel lodging. We are very aware that our corporate guests have some needs that differ from those on a holiday. Business travelers generally want more privacy and quiet, faster wireless service, and a copy machine instead of the local tourist map.

Our corporate guests will be pleased to know that we have anticipated their requirements and have done our very best to provide an atmosphere conducive to getting their work done in a comfortable and stress-free environment. Our guest suites have a full kitchen, living room, queen bedroom, and, of course, a private bath with tub/shower. These efficiency units are not only spacious but very quiet.

Aside from free wireless Internet access throughout the property, we also offer scanning and copy service free of charge. Each room or suite has free local and domestic long distance calling.

Business travelers tend to eat at restaurants or hotel coffee shops most of the time. In order to break that routine, we offer an evening meal plan, a great extra on an extended stay. With a little advance notice, you can have dinner prepared for you, at a time convenient to your schedule and with a choice of menu items. What better way to end the day?

A glass of wine or a cold beer from the butler's pantry (compliments of the house) and a home-cooked meal. You just might think that meeting wasn't so bad after all!
