Visit with friends

Would not recommend Tue, Oct 20, 2015
Room was not what expected, dark, view out window was brick wall, like being in a cave. Very outdated and old furnishings. Breakfast did not look appealing so went elsewhere.

VCU visit

Would recommend Mon, Jun 22, 2015
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

Would not recommend Sun, Nov 16, 2014
The room smelled of stale smoke, outdated/business furniture inside, no real food in restaurant.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.

Great place to stay. It's a good hotel, but it's in a good location and the room was very large and quiet.

VCU Medical Center

Would recommend Tue, Sep 9, 2014
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.

Dining

Nice breakfast at hotel. Very nice dinner restaurant around the corner, Tobacco Exchange

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.

It is in the heart of downtown of Richmond, which is a plus. However, you can hear EVERYTHING from the room next door, and I mean EVERYTHING. Let's hope your neighbors are quieter than mine were...

Time saver

Capital is literally right across the street.

Would recommend Fri, Mar 28, 2014
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.
