Nice hotel downtown

My husband and I were in Richmond to visit some friends and this hotel was a walkable distance to their apartment as well as several museums. The front desk was very nice, when needed our car was brought around promptly with a call downstairs, and our room was very spacious. It was very comfortable, cold AC, spotless bathroom, and comfy bed. One bedside lamp was missing a bulb, but that tiny oversight was the only thing wrong. My husband used the sauna in the morning before we left and thought it was one of the best, hottest electric dry saunas he'd ever used. We were only in town one night, but would definitely stay again if we find ourselves back in Richmond.

VCU visit

I needed something close to VCU for summer orientation. The hotel was technically within walking distance, but since it was 95 and super humid, decided to drive. There were only about seven non-valet parking spots, although I did manage to snag one the second night. On first morning, valet was very prompt and courteous. Front desk staff was also very helpful and friendly. Room was large, clean, and comfortable with a very nice bathroom. Only negative I would say is try to get a room on a higher floor. I was on the 2nd floor, and every morning I was woken by sounds from the street below - garbage trucks, tour buses, etc. Other than that, this was a very nice hotel.

Just OK

The room smelled of stale smoke, outdated/business furniture inside, no real food in restaurant. This property could use a real renovation. Otherwise clean and very friendly/helpful staff.

VCU Medical Center

Our daughter had an accident, was transported to VCU Medical Center. Commonwealth Suites is a short walking distance away. Directly in front of State Capitol. Very good location for sightseeing and restaurants. Staff very pleasant and helpful. Hotel very clean and neat. Nice breakfast to get your day started. Very nice to walk across the street and you are on the State Capitol grounds. Would recommend the Commonwealth Suites.

Couple staying for one night

Very well staff and the cleanliness was good. However, you can literally hear everything from the neighbors next door and I mean EVERYTHING. Let's hope your neighbors are much quieter than ours.

Quick Business Visit

This is a great hotel in a great location. It is older and lacks the modern amenities of newer urban hotels but the rooms are great and the comfort is good. My only negative is the old noisy air/heat conditioner which is less than comfortable.
