“Enjoyable Stay - Pity About The Milk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Mrs Seat64K and I stayed twice at this Hyatt property: at the start and at the end of our VA holiday.

Overall, I rate this hotel as very good, We stayed in a studio suite, equipped with mini kitchen, huge TV, sofa and comfy bed. Unfortunately, due to the lighting (very low wattage?) the spotlessly clean bathroom appeared dingy. Perhaps lighter walls and different lighting would make for a more appealing bathroom. But this is a minor quibble. Although we didn't fully use it, the mini kitchen had everything you'd need to eat-in in the evening.

Service was minimal but helpful. Breakfast choice was extensive, the usual US breakfast staples being provided.

I found that the room had two drawbacks, the first was the fridge which was rather loud, especially as the room itself was very quiet (easy enough to deal with: turn off before going to bed, turn on in the morning...). Secondly, although the filter coffee provided wasn't too bad, the Hyatt House ONLY provided that ghastly synthetic "coffee creamer" instead of little pots of real milk or half-and-half. Apparently, according to the helpful desk clerk, they used to have real milk, but Hyatt decided that powdered creamer would be the standard (c'mon Hyatt, surely your customers deserve better than synthetic "stuff" for their morning in-room coffee?).

In all, a very good place to stay. Near to shops and restaurants, nicely fitted out and reasonable prices, I'd certainly suggest Hyatt House Richmond West for anyone wishing to visit Richmond, but bring your own milk (or filch a mini pot of half-and-half from the Hotel's entrance coffee bar).

Traveled to Richmond for a two day meeting. Previously stayed at two other hotels, but this hotel has me sold. The lobby is just beautiful and better still it is adjacent to the Short Pump Town Center, great stores and eating establishments. I tried to attach pics of my room. Comfortable bed, full kitchen, big screen tv, spacious bath and quiet, but site will not allow. If I can attach later I will. They also have a wonderful fitness room, pool and spa. So you ask okay they have what most hotels have so what won me over. It was the "BREAKFAST" other hotels say free breakfast and it consist of juice, bagels and instant hot cereal. But this hotel offers an omelet station, and a very big selection of hot and cold foods. This is a thumbs up for the hotel, location and features. In addition the staff was friendly and quick to accommodate. I think it is a winner!!

Stayed here while on a business trip recently. Very clean, good public areas and very comfortable bed.
Would be particularly good if you were taking an extended stay as there are cooking and refrigeration facilities in the suites.
Breakfast is great, and there is a lady who works there clearing plates etc who brightens your morning with her chit chat. She's 63 apparently!
I would definitely stay there again when travelling to Richmond.

Wow- what does this hotel not have going for it? We have stayed in many hotels across the country with various brands...and this one is by far the best. We didn't hear a single sound from our room. The breakfast was great- it didn't offer as many ultra healthy options as we would like (vegan/gluten-free) but it was all better than other "hot breakfasts" that come with our hotel price. The beds were extremely comfortable. Every staff member was friendly--making sure we were comfortable and greeted each time we walked by them. We look forward to returning. We'll definitely be staying here for all of our Richmond weekend trips. The location is great! We almost booked the Hilton down the road but they had a parking fee...can't figure that out since they are located by nothing of interest to us. Can't beat walking downstairs to the mall and all the restaurants. We didn't pack swim suits but we will next time- the pool, hot tub and fire pit looked amazing from our room...like a resort. (Or at least as close as we will come to a resort with a 1 and 3 year-old!).

To reiterate what others have said.......This hotel is fabulous.
We had a huge corner suite which had a separate bedroom, large bathroom with walk in shower and a soaking tub that was out of this world. Our room was spotlessly clean and well appointed.

Breakfast was adequate. It was a busy Saturday morning and they kept up with replenishing the food stations.
The staff was helpful and friendly.

Loved the location with shopping and restaurants right outside the door.

I only wish the Hyatt House was closer to our home as it would make for a great weekend getaway.

We stayed here for 4 nights in September. The hotel is very nice and in a convenient location. The rooms were spotless, service was great. Breakfast is included in the room rate, however, we only ate breakfast on one of the 4 mornings as we were on PST time and didn't make the breakfast hours. The one day we did eat breakfast, it was good with a nice selection. The hotel is located next to the Mall. The only negative was the Signage to the hotel. It is located towards the back of the Mall with no signage on West Broad Strre. We had to call the front desk at 1:00 AM to get directions from W Broad Street. I would definitely stay again!
