“Lovely”
Reviewed March 4, 2014

The hotel is perfect for DMAS and Virginia Premier meetings and well as Civic Center events. Room service is excellent! No to-go coffee sales at the Hilton Garden Inn. (Starbucks across the street at the Marriott.) Non-smoking facility and no comfortable/safe place to smoke outside.

The stay was great. The staff made us feel like we where at home. It was in a great location to the convention center which was hosting the wine expo. I highly recommend this hotel to everyone. Specially if you need to stay near the convention center. The breakfast is excellent and dinner was great too!!!

Thank you for your recent "Wine Expo" visit. I heard it was a wonderful event, and they even had some running events too. Yes, we are very convenient to the convention center, as well some great new local restaurants and attractions in Downtown Richmond. I will share your review with the team especially our F&B crew related to your wonderful breakfast and dinner you had with us. Hope to see you back for the new Expo, or just a weekend in RVA.

Sincerely,

John - GM

Easy check in from the friendly staff. Rooms were clean, comfortable and spacious. Checked out the pool and hot tub which were very nice. Really good nights sleep. Centrally located to my business meeting. Will definitely stay here again.

We stayed for two night just to get away. We arrived at the hotel to check in 10 min prior to 3pm. We were informed that our room was not ready. We waited past the check in time and our room had to be changed because it still was not ready. We did not receive a sorry for the wait free breakfast voucher nothing. Their customer service was horrible but the rooms are nice. We were over charged for room service and make sure you don't think you're getting a free breakfast because it's not free. Go to Holiday Inn Express, better treatment, better quality and free breakfast.

Thank you for sharing with us about your recent experience. I am sorry to hear this was the case for you - I can assure you this is not typical. I would love to speak with you privately and address your comments about the room service charges. Feel free to contact me via email.

I will share your arrival experience with my front desk staff. While long check-in times should never happen, if they do my team should go above and beyond to rectify the situation (and typically they do!). It's good to know what can happen when we drop the ball.

Thank you again for sharing, and I look forward to speaking with you privately.

The Hilton Garden Inn Richmond Downtown is like… Richmond.
It's convenient, reasonably priced, welcoming, but nothing to write home about.
Breakfast is good, rooms are clean (but not new), staff happy to help.
Very good value for money.

Room Tip: Ask to be close to the elevators, as some corridors are looooooooong.

I really enjoyed the hotel and bar staff especially Linda, Ted and James. There was a problem with the heating in my room and my bed would not adjust to my comfort. After explaining my issue to the Front Desk, they resolved it immediately by putting my into another room as well as providing me with free breakfast for two people. My overall stay was wonderful and I do plan on staying there during my next trip to Richmond. The hotel shuttle arrived and departed in a timely manner and I never had to complain.
