We stayed at the Commonwealth Park Suites while attending a concert at the National (a local music venue about two blocks away). The parking options are sub-optimal - either valet for $12/day (I think, but can't swear) or park in a handful of lots nearby (though the bulk of the nearby lots are designated for St. of Va employees for the office buildings). Parking was the only slight 'pain point'.
The staff was nice and the room was a large multi-room suite. The rooms had snap wooden floors and the furniture wasn't 'worn'. There's a frig and both rooms had TVs with multiple sitting areas. Also a desk and small kitchen table for those interested. I think there was also internet service. Overall, I thought it was pretty good for the price.
Location-wise, there is relatively little immediately nearby - unless your going to the Gov's house. That said, we walked to Shockoe Bottom (maybe 6 or 7 blocks) which is full of bars and restaurants. In the other direction, is Shockoe Slip (which we walked to a late night diner after the concert).
If you're going to the National, it's a perfect location. If not, it's a solid place for the money with large rooms and a nice staff. If you're considering it, go for it!
