DON'T DO IT! Booked a room here. Issue with bed bugs. They would not consider a refund. Would not stay here. Wasted money. Bad choice. Take the time to read all reviews and book somewhere with higher stars.

After checking in we made our way to the room... More

Traveling and arrived at The Richmond Suites Hotel without reservation. We were pleasantly greeted by Veronique at the front desk and assigned a quiet, updated, clean room. We stayed only one night on 12/11/13 and thoroughly enjoyed the tastefully Holiday decorated decor that welcomed us in the lobby area. The GM - David Bartlett - introduced himself and welcomed us...

Wanted to thank Josh for all his help with the check in and the wonderful room he assigned to me. Josh was very kind. Then David Bartlett, General manager, welcomed me and offer me a cup of coffee. The room was terrific and the breakfast was very nice. Both men deserve a big thank you for making me want to... More

The hotel service was excellent! The front desk and cleaning ladies were very friendly and did not complain. The hotel needs a renovation! The rooms do not have good locks! They need new carpet, new cabinets for the TV's and a lock for the doors outside that will make the residents feel safe. The hotel residents need to be able... More

Very nice hotel.Room was very clean and comfortable! Front desk employee was friendly and polite. Had a very nice breakfast served with a choice of waffles, oatmeal, cereal, juice, milk, coffee (regular or decaf), pastries etc. Used a coupon from Hotels.com book, which made it very affordable. Will definitely stay here again on my next trip!
