“Overpriced with tired rooms”
Reviewed April 2, 2008

While it offers a location adjacent to the Convention Center, this hotel is overpriced for what it delivers. At $270 per night, I expect a business center with free internet access and free internet access from the room - not here. Additionally, the rooms are of average quality - particularly the bath area. The staff is very friendly and accommodating, but the value is still below expectations for the price.

I'm surprised by the bad reviews on the site. Everyone was incredibly nice, the hotel itself was fine if not as luxurious as the Jefferson. The rooms were like every other hotel room on the planet. No free coffee in the lobby (there is a Starbucks). No free wifi, which i find annoying.

I'm glad I didn't read the previous reviews before booking! On arrival, the valet was extremely professional but also personable, not snooty at all. It was only $3 more to valet it, so we did. Check in was a breeze and again, the staff were very professional but also chatty and fun. We were told about the free shuttle service immediately, which was a godsend, as driving in downtown Richmond is not a preferred activity. The room was spotless and very inviting. I didn't want to pay to use the internet in the room but had no problem finding a quiet sofa in the lobby and even enjoyed a free cookie while I was at it. The shuttle driver was a real southern gentleman, an elderly character with surprising driving skills (he could put a NY cabbie to shame) and stories to tell. What a fantastic experience!

To the gentleman who wrote that there is nothing to do in Richmond, have you been there? We had an incredible time at Capital Ale House and the shuttle driver showed up exactly on time to pick us up and take us to the Tobacco Company for dinner. We were a bit the worse for ale and wine with our fabulous meal, and he showed up within 5 minutes of our summoning call (he gives you his cell number!) to ferry us back to the Marriott.

Jennifer at the lobby lounge was a treat. I ordered coffee and she not only made fresh, she warmed my mug for me before pouring the coffee. We had a great conversation with her and then retired to our room with dessert to go from the lounge.

Maybe we had a better experience because it is the slow season and they are not as rushed, but every single, valet, clerk, driver, server, bellman we dealt with was a lady or a gentleman. I really felt like I was at the Ritz Cartlton, without the attitude.
