This hotel is bad! Terrible! My Lady and I spent two nights at this hotel because of a New Year’s Eve gala that was being held there.
When we arrived, there we three people to take our car, but no one to help with the luggage. The room had inadequate heat. A repair person came to the room, replaced a motor in the heating unit, but said the pipes were not as hot as they should be … hence inadequate heating. Our room was not provided maid service. When we had to request for the service, we wanted to make it easy and asked for just for towels and soap … and soap ... and soap. But, no soap was left. Three of the 4 glasses were taken but not replaced. Someone … the glass lady? … was supposed to bring up glasses, but never did. On the way to the gala I stopped by the front desk, and explained our lack of service. I requested that 2 bars of soap and 3 glasses be available for us to pick up at the desk after the gala. Of course after the midnight gala … the staff at the front desk were unaware of our request.
The hotel catered the New Year’s Eve gala. They served the worst tasting hors d'oeuvres in my memory. My martini tasted as though is was all vermouth. Things didn’t get any better at dinner … the salmon tasted closer to sardines … and the beef was tough. Enough! You should get the point. Oh, and when temporarily leaving the hotel, the auto attendant gave directions that began with driving the wrong way one a one-way street.
One needs to experience the terrible in order to really appreciate the great. If you need a reminder of the terrible, this downtown Richmond Marriott is a place that will do it.
