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 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 Carytown Coffee, 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

This old hotel sits next to the US Court of Appeals and across the street from the Capital building. If you are a fan of of architecture (and I am) then you are going to love this location. Be prepared for the quirks of an old hotel - ie small elevator. The suites are huge and the beds super comfy.

This is a great place to stay. This is everything you would always want away from home. The staff is friendly and quick to provide whatever service they can. When I go there it feels like my home away from home.

The hotel's location is wonderful! Within walking distance of many restaurants and Richmond sites. The front desk personal were very helpful, knowledgeable, and responsive. The Valet gentlemen were wonderful as well. The hotel is doing a superior job during a very difficult time with COVID. The restaurant is only open for dinner but was very good and the bartender was incredibly friendly. Our room was huge and clean I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
