Embassy Richmond/Henrico VA
I normally stay at Hilton properties to build up points with Hilton Honor program. This was my 3rd or 4th time to this location over the years.
Managers Happy Hour
Nice gym and pool area,
made to order breakfast,
either free wireless or it was part of being a Hilton Honor’s member
This property is showing its age
Bathroom was dirty.
Parking lot driveway is hard to find
My fiancé and I stayed overnight while I attended a 1 day conference she decided to work out of the room. Check in was easy I asked for a late check out and was told 1pm, I asked if I could go later I was told by the front desk that they would have to charge me ½ day if I left after 1pm. Long story short we slipped the maid $5 and she told the Fiancé she would make that the last room she cleaned – so we got to stay until 2:30. My real amazement in room 704 is the stained and mildewed grout in the bathroom. I also noticed a black ring of mold around the back and sides of the toilet. Otherwise it was a typical Embassy 2 bedroom suite with pod style coffee maker, mini refrigerator. Lighting is the usual dim hotel light we all suffer with these days. Manager special had ample free beer, wine, and liquor. The food put out was mediocre some cheese, some sort of “out of the box” triangle thing with sauce, and some cut up vegetables. Breakfast is great pretty much anything you want including made to order eggs and meats. Parking is surface parking and it’s free the lot is somewhat dim after dark but it borders an office complex and appears to be safe. Across the parking lot is a TGI Fridays and a Sheetz gas station. Since Richmond is an easy city to maneuver I may end up staying at the new Hilton 8 miles west.
