From the first arrival throughout the stay the staff were very nice. Everyone greets you warmly from the front desk to the maintenance staff. The location is quite comfortable being near the university and the free hotel van will take you to the Slip or anywhere within 3 miles.
The only negative I noticed was the mustiness of the property as a whole. The hallways, elevator, the room and even the van smell like they need a thorough cleaning if not a renovation. My room heating/cooling system could not be set above 70 but since it was not all that chilly out I did not complain to the front desk.
I will return if I need to spend a night or two in Richmond as overall it is acceptable.
