“Very spacious suites in a great Richmond location”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

We stayed at the Commonwealth Park Suites Hotel last weekend when visiting our daughter at VCU. The suite was beautiful, with a very large living room where our daughter stayed in a comfortable sofa bed, and a charming bedroom with a king-size bed. The bathroom is perfectly situated between the 2 rooms, with privacy doors to both rooms. The towel warmer didn't work but the bathroom was nice otherwise. We had a perfect view of the State capitol and the hotel was convenient to everything. The staff were very customer-service oriented. The price was excellent for a suite. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit.

The start of our stay didn't go so well - we were given a smoking room that looked more like a depressing one bedroom college apartment at first. We called down to say we didn't reserve a smoking room and the woman said she'd call right back....after we realized that she wasn't we went downstairs and she was just standing around. Se also told us there were no pack n plays even thought we had confirmed one...after calling the manager we got both a nice nonsmoking room and a pnp. So I think it was more just bad service from one person.
Everyone else has been very helpful. Extra blankets were brought up more quickly than any hotel I've ever been in and the valet guy is very nice and quick.
The best by far is Mr. James P. who runs the breakfast diner on site. Excellent service: friendly, quick, and genuine. He could work anywhere he wants I'd bet but I think he really enjoys running the store here. Makes an average hotel breakfast feel one or two stars higher.
The room we got (after the first awful one) is very large with large windows and a comfortable bed.
Heat lamps in bathroom are nice.
Bedroom is separate from living and bathroom which is good since we have a toddler who naps and goes to bed before us.
We stayed here for the marathon - it's walking distance robots start and finish line which is great!

Room Tip: Ensure your room is or is not smoking before hand. If you want a view, make it known ahead of time s...

The front desk person did call me to find the location of the pack and play. She was waiting for the valet to get back with the pack and play before calling you, and that is why your probably noticed her just standing around, as she is not supposed to leave the desk unattended at any time, though she should have called you to explain what was going on.
I am happy that you were moved to a non smoking room and enjoyed the rest of your stay.

For our suite from orbit for a great price. Loved our suite, felt like we took a step back in time. Loads of charm. James in the restaurant is wonderful, just as everyone says! We will stay here again next time we here

While our room was nice, including a bidet and a towel warmer, the bidet leaked from the wall, and the towel warmer didn't work. I feel like this place was really nice at one point but fell into disrepair. Also, at times it was hard to sleep from all the street noise even on the 7th floor.

Dinner at the restaurant was mediocre (great onion rings but limited selection, and frozen hamburger patties that were still cold), but I don't blame the service staff because there doesn't seem to be much traffic through there anyway. Prices were still reasonable.

The shining star of our stay, I must acknowledge, was the buffet breakfast. The food was good, reasonably priced, and our server/chef (James P.) was pleasant and on the ball despite the number of guests all entering at once.

Room Tip: Try to avoid the North Side if you don't like street noise when sleeping.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review . The bidet in your room had a faulty valve and was replaced. The towel warmers do take a little while to warm up because of the size. Being a downtown property we do get a fair share of ' Sounds of the CIty'. I apologize for any inconvenience.

I needed to extend my stay in Richmond and was put off by a rate increase at the Hotel I'd booked for the original period. I needed a more economical place to stay an extra night in Richmond, and this fit the bill.

Very conveniently located, great value and perfectly comfortable. Having been to the Pub down the street, I felt like I could have been staying in London! Don't be put off by the charmingly tiny elevator, the rooms are a great size for the location.

Great room! Most comfortable bed I have ever slept on in a hotel. Huge rooms for downtown. Do not leave in the morning without stopping by the restaurant and meeting James! He lights up the room with his personality and bends over backwards to make sure that your breakfast is PERFECT! Thanks James!

We had a wonderful experience at this hotel. Location is great! The hotel employees were all so kind and friendly. Everyone was always willing to make our stay pleasant. The rooms were very large and clean. James P. made the best breakfast. He greeted us with a smile and was very attentive through the meal. The food was delicious.
