We spent two nights at the Stonewall Jackson Conference Center and enjoyed it very much. Parking was very convenient in the adjacent public garage (which has an elevator dedicated to serving the hotel). The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice, and the corridors wide and well-lit. The lobby has a high ceiling that gives the feel of a grand hotel of an earlier era (which it actually is, having been restored within the last 10 years). Overall, the hotel seemed quiet and restful. We were glad to have stayed at the Stonewall Jackson.
The lobby had some displays on the history of the hotel. Interestingly, the hotel has its original 1920's Wurlitzer organ on the mezzanine. We asked, and though it has been restored, they do not have anyone who plays it. Such a shame. We would have loved to hear a concert. It would have been nice to get a bit closer to it to check it out (we have an organist in the family).
The facility has a nice restaurant and lounge but it is a bit pricey for those of us traveling with a family. However, since the facility is downtown, there are many small restaurants and shops on the surrounding streets which are somewhat more cost-effective.
The hotel is also immediately adjacent to the Blackfriars Theater (Shakespearean theater). This would make it very convenient for anyone coming to see a show at the theater (we would have liked to take in a show, but when we tried to get tickets several days in advance, they were sold out already). Many of the people at the hotel were attending performances at the theater.
The facility has an indoor pool on the Basement level. It is a fairly large pool with a hot tub. Our son enjoyed the pool. The décor could have been a bit livelier (just large expanses of wall painted light blue)...a potted plant or something would have made the space a bit more attractive, and would make it seem less like being in the basement. But hey...the kids don't mind.
