“Better than expected”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

The hotel and the rooms in particular were cleaner and nicer than expected for the price, and than expected from the rather drab exterior. The hotel was fully booked with kids in a soccer tournament, but we thought the staff did a reasonably good job of managing the crowds, particularly at the pool and during breakfast. Location turned out to be a bit too far from the center of the city for us (all those traffic lights on Broad Street, ugh). Also, we ordered in room service for dinner and were very pleased with the quality. Get the shrimp and corn beignets (not really beignets, but still delicious)!

An overnight stay while traveling on I 95 brought us to this recently remodeled Embassy Suites. Everything was new, crisp and clean. We always appreciate the 2 room suite with fridge & microwave, where a door can give a nice separation. As usual for Embassy Suites, the included full breakfast buffet was plentiful.

The only negative is a very small bathroom, although an extra sink area is provided in the bedroom.

Extra Hilton Honors points were accrued for eating in the restaurant.

Arrived mid day and was told our room was ready (around noon). We checked in and were sleeping (between 1 and 2 pm) when housekeeping knocked on the door and woke us up to ask when we would be checking out and leaving! Yes, the hotel was full (soccer tournament in town -- which we were participating in), but we had been told our room was ready (and it was), so why did housekeeping come to clean an already clean room?

The manager's reception was a bit disappointing --- yes, free drinks, but the "light appetizers" consisted of tortilla chips and salsa, veggies and dip, crackers and mixed nuts.

The next morning as we packed up (between 8 and 9 am), housekeeping knocked on our door AGAIN (thank goodness we didn't sleep in!) to find out when we would be leaving. If you advertise a 12 pm checkout, why are you knocking on doors before 9 am??? I have never felt as rushed to leave a hotel by the employees as I did with this stay. I like Embassy Suites, but I would hesitate to book at this property again.

Dear Valued Guest
While I was pleased to read we were able to check you in early, I was disappointed there was confusion with your room’s departure date and we caused you to feel rushed the next morning. I have shared your comments with our staff and thank you sharing your thoughts with us. We do hope you will give us another try if in Richmond and we hope you enjoyed the soccer tournament. Best Regards, Kathleen Lyons

I stayed here for business and it was very central location to everything - including the mall! The KONA GRILL near there was really good as well! I also ate at their great restaurant, happy hour, breakfast. I will definitely stay again. The employees were great too. They were very accommodating and rooms were very nice and clean.

We have stayed at this hotel twice so far, and have really enjoyed it both times. The furnishings and interior are slightly worn - our last room could use a paint job. But everything else about our stay was enjoyable. The suite was nice and spacious, and the bed was quite comfortable. The kids loved the inside courtyard, and indoor pool. The happy hour was a great way to unwind after traveling, and I think this point alone could convert me to an Embassy Suites loyal customer. The staff was welcoming and friendly, and made us feel right at home. The free hot breakfast was a great perk - an omelette station, fresh fruit, great coffee....and who doesn't want endless amounts of bacon? We really enjoyed the stay, and we will definitely be returning to the Embassy Suites during our next stay in Richmond.

We stay here once or twice a year, and have always enjoyed the experience. This Embassy Suites offers roomy suites that seem well maintained, and it does what all these properties do in providing a generous manager's reception for a couple of hours every afternoon and an equally generous cooked-to-order breakfast every morning. Depending on your capacity (as well as hunger and thirst), these benefits could be worth $40 per person, so that you get a $140 suite for two for what amounts to $60.
I can add that the place is laid out in an usually complex design, so that it can be difficult to find the public restrooms---but that is by no means a serious drawback.
