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.

Great location with great facilities

We were doing research at the Library of Virginia. The hotel is across the street from the state capitol, a three block walk to the library and an abundance of excellant restaurants within walking distance. The staff was friendly and helpful. The suite was perfect. Also, the hotel is pet friendly which made Buster a very happy dog. This hotel is a real bargain, especially when compared to other choices in downtown Richmond.

Nice Place Close to VCU MCV

I was here because I had an interview at MCV. It's walking distance to the campus and you can wake up 30 minutes prior, get ready, and be in the interview with a lot of time to spare. I recommend this place if your interviewing at MCV. There's a nice living room separated from the bedroom with closed doors, so it can give you some privacy if you have guests.
