Comfortable beds, hotel service is SUPERIOR, but housekeeping leaves a little bit to be desired. Can be a little noisy so if you like it quiet, ask to be away from the elevators. Because of the fantastic conference facilities,this is a choice hotel for any group and the staff is "over the top" accommodating."
Some rooms have a great view of the Capitol but you may want to ask for that too. Others overlook parking lots but with all the activities around you may not want to hang out in your room too much anyway.
Large comfortable beds have clean white linens and spa robes. Spa soap, lotion and shampoo products are provided in the rooms. The towels are large and soft. Bathrooms are nice with tub/shower combinations and travertine marble. A little dated, but still very nice and large. The room has a mini bar and coffee maker and a safe, however my safe was broken. It did not matter, because I travel with very few valuables. Average, bit nice closet space with a levered door and extra blankets.
Overall, I would stay again since I know what to ask for. The hotel has a shuttle service that will take you within a five mile radius. Use it. Parking is expensive and limited downtown, but be prepared to wait 15-25 minutes for the shuttle.
The hotel provides valet and self parking but both are about $21 a day.
Richmond has some of the best genealogy resources, cemeteries of famous colonial figures and USA colonial history sites and this hotel places you very close to many of them. Loved that it was close to several historical sights, has restaurants close by, a coffee shop and sweet downstairs in the lobby and access to a YMCA for fitness.
It was easy to find and return to the highway.
