We were in Richmond for a dog show at the Richmond Intl. Raceway last weekend and wanted to stay close to the venue. We had two of our three dogs with us and thus needed to find a pet-friendly hotel. I was surprised to see a Hampton Inn that accepts pets. In my experience, most don't. We were very pleased with our stay. Our room was large, well-furnished and most importantly, spotless. The beds and pillows were very comfortable. The staff was very helpful in coordinating the cleaning of our room during times when we were out with the dogs. Loved the wi-fi and free breakfast too. Anytime I can get make-your-own waffles for breakfast, I'm a happy camper. This hotel is situated about 10 minutes away from the raceway and is adjacent to a large restaurant/shopping center development, which is very handy for getting dinner, groceries, gas, etc. There are also plenty of grassy areas on the property to walk the dogs. We will definitely stay at this hotel again if we come to the same dog show next year.
