“Great stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I've stayed here twice on business trips. The hotel has the usual Embassy Suites perks - cooked to order breakfast, manager's reception (free drinks) at night, and large suite style rooms. It's located just off Broad Street, which has every restaurant, store and fast food joint you can imagine. 7 miles from the mall, which has more stores and places to eat. Staff was very friendly and helpful when I needed to tack on an extra day to my stay. A lot of people I work with stay at the Westin nearby, but when I return I'll stay at the Embassy again.

One drawback - the bathrooms are small.

This was a 2 night stop for us and last time we stayed here we did not like it very much. It has been about 6 years since our first visit and this time it as very good. The room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Great Managers Reception, one of the best we have ever attended, Breakfast was also very good. Staff friendly, helpful. Good location. Would highly recommend this stop.

Room Tip: All rooms are clean, good bedding, good location.

I have made yearly visits to the Embassy Suites Richmond for a Women's Conference for the past four years, and since the first Conference, I ALWAYS look forward my time there!! The hotel is absolutely beautiful and relaxing, the staff is always very professional, kind, welcoming, and willing to go the extra mile for the guests, the amenities are awesome (spacious suite, very comfortable beds, etc.), and our Conference included the cooked-to-order breakfast (available to all guests), dinner, lunch, and snacks, which were delicious!! They also have a Manager's Reception which was a very nice touch and there are also restaurants within walking distance. If I were to visit the Richmond area other than to attend the Women's Conference, I would definitely stay here...I highly recommend this hotel!

I've stayed there twice now, both on business trips. The rooms are spacious, the bed comfortable, the staff very accomodating. They have an excellent breakfast where you can get your breakfast cooked to order. Nice lounge for after work. Really nice pool and workout facilities. The rooms all face inside with the atrium in the center.

Honestly, I wish every hotel I travel to were just like this one. You really can't beat it.

We stayed at this hotel on a Saturday night during a trip to SC. The staff were super friendly, from the front desk to the restaurant staff. The rooms were well appointed and the hotel was pretty quiet for a Saturday. The breakfast layout was great and again the staff were more than helpful with my requests. A definite must stay on future trips.

We were here only over night and I must say I would have been glad to stay longer. The suite was really wonderful -- after 2 weeks on the road in hotel rooms, the larger space was great. The welcome cocktail and appies in the central courtyard area made me feel like we were on a Mexico resort holiday again. Having filled up on appies we didn't feel like having supper until after 9:00 pm so we ordered room service. Dining in the room at the table after non-stop restaurant meals was very comforting and the "black and bleu" salad was super. The bed was comfortable and the room quiet. Breakfast was included and very good. We paid about $150.00 I think it was for suite and breakfast and that was in our view a more than reasonable price for all that we got. Thank you very much!
