The beds were like sleeping on a hard rock, which was ok with me but I know that some people don't like that. The pillows went flat as soon as I put my head on them, The hand soap made my hands smell like rancid oil, the trash trucks woke us early in the morning. Otherwise this is an ok... More

Two years ago I visited this hotel while my spouse and I were still dating and it was really unique and relaxing - that has all changed. There were multiple problems this time that will assure that I never return here: Checkout was prolonged and confused by the fact that the person at the desk tried to sell me some... More

I'm a business traveler who is on the road most of the time. I look for hotels that are quiet, comfortable, have stand-up showers and cold a/c. How I rate: * - I left the hotel and went elsewhere ** - I stayed, but wouldn't return *** - Would return if I had to **** - Enjoyed the stay *****... More

Poor staff attitude, housekeeping is horrible,multiple staff members on their peronsal cell phones, both maintenance & housekeeping needs to pay attention to detail, to sum it all up as a business leader I would clean house.

I checked into this hotel only to find that the toilet was plugged up. The front desk said they would send someone up to fix it. While I was waiting I found out the safe wouldn't open. I called the front desk and they informed me that no engineer was available at night. They also admitted that they couldn't fix... More

My wife and I stayed here while attending a wedding in the area. First visit to one of these properties. We would stay again. Very compact and very efficient layout of the room. Upstairs for commercial spaces. Located in a new walk/drive community with lots of places to eat, drink and shop nearby. Very nice staff.

First of all - from the moment we walked into this place, it was clear that we were not the target group for this hotel brand, and this will be reflected in my review. This hotel is obviously marketed to 20-somethings who want something that's hip and not too expensive, so my husband and I are 10+ years away from... More

We recently stayed at the Aloft during a visit to University of Richmond. We had been told of the Short Pump/Glen Allen area and wanted to see what it was about. The Aloft is situated near tons of restaurants and shopping, some of it within walking. The staff there was very hospitable, especially Meredith, who checked us in. She was... More

Very disappointed in this hotel. It tries to be cool and fails miserably. I felt like I was staying in a college dorm hall. When I checked in, I asked if the restaurant downstairs was open. I was given a typed menu and was told I could order at the bar. I asked if it was the same food as... More
