If you're attending an event at the Greater Richmond Convention Center, this is the place to stay. Located literally next door to the facility and offers a skywalk that's convenient in case of bad weather.
The hotel appears to be under some renovation, and I ended up with one of the rooms that wasn't renovated. It wasn't bad, but definitely suffering from the old hotel blues. I'm sure the rooms will be better once they're all renovated. The lobby is impressive and the one thing that stood out is how clean the common areas and rooms are. The bathroom in my room was spotless and it was one of the cleanest rooms I've had in awhile.
Prepare yourself for a lot of extra expenses. The parking is $18.00 for valet service, which takes a long time when you pick up the car. The first time I picked it up the wait was over 30 minutes. Self parking is $16.00 per night. You'll also pay $9.95 a day for internet service (they don't offer WiFi). There is small gift shop that offers some Starbucks items open until 10pm, but again...prepare yourself for very high prices. Room service has a pricey menu and again takes an exceptionally long time to deliver, one morning forgetting to bring a breakfast order. All this with paying $189 per night and that was supposedly a discounted rate.
Overall this is a nice place, but with so many less expensive brands offering free breakfasts, free WiFi and not charging for parking it makes me wonder why this property can't give you a little more for the money. But if you're at the convention center and want convenience, it's probably worth the expense.
