We stayed as part of a volleyball tournament but our room was paid for so I'm not sure what the cost was. The only parking option is a pricey $18/day valet (which we also didn't pay for) but the car was always ready when we needed it. I actually mistakenly left my wallet in the car one night and it was still there with everything intact the next morning!
To be greeted with a warm cookie makes a great first impression, as did the room upon arrival. The beds and pillows are so cozy it was very difficult to get up in the morning. The double bed room was quite large and we had requested a refrigerator which was ready for us when we arrived. Bathroom is quite small, just barely enough room to open the door without hitting the toilet but the shower is spacious and I'm usually picky about water pressure but ours was fine.
We were on the 9th floor and with three elevators we never had to wait long. Since the hallways have several turns, I never heard anyone in the halls (this included the numerous teenage volleyball players who had filled the hotel for the weekend).
We enjoyed a late dinner in the bar area since the restaurant seating was about to close. The chef's special sauce on the buffalo chicken wrap had just the right amount of kick and the burger and fries were delicious. He delivered it himself and was quite proud of his work, as he should be! Not your normal bar food.
The hotel also has two vans that offer free shuttle service which we used to and from the convention center. If the weather had been warmer, it is close enough to walk.
Definitely a great choice for a visit to downtown Richmond or VCU.
