Nice to be back. Rueger's Restaurant and Bar atmosphere summons me to slow down, take a minute and just be present. The wall of history is a wonderful display that reminds me of entrepreneurial determination. The menus offer classic comforts, as well as some surprises...More

Thank You so much Queenbee1300! The snow-pocalypse was interesting to say the least. We hope next time you come to town the sun will be shinning and you can explore all that Richmond has to offer.

About
Description
You may think you know The Commonwealth, as it has been a landmark hotel in Richmond for over 100 years. And much of what we have been known for—excellent service, spacious suites, and a location that can't be More beat—remains. But we have totally reinvented ourselves, and now offer a uniquely Richmond experience. From the tattooed entrance doors on our suites (did you know that RVA is the 5th most tattooed city in America?), to furniture and art hand crafted from some of the area's most talented artisans, to java from Richmond's own Black Hand Coffee Company, The Commonwealth will surprise and delight you at every turn. All guestrooms feature: Handcrafted furnishings and artwork from local Virginia artisans and artists; Beds with Simmons Beautyrest mattresses, luxurious cotton sheeting and your choice of pillow firmness; 50” flat screen TV with HD programming; Complimentary high speed wired & wireless internet; Clock radio with bluetooth music streaming; Refrigerator/freezer & microwave Less

There is no free parking for this hotel. I parked on the street (for free) and had to move the car by 08:00. The hotel has valet parking only, under the hotel, for $20 each night.
