In town for a wedding

Pleasent stay - weren't in the room too long. Surprised that we didn't get two new bath towels each day and had to keep asking for them. The bed was comfy and the pillows were fantastic! Water ran very very HOT so had to be careful.

Renewed my faith in hotels

After a couple lack luster experiences at other hotels this month I was excited to be staying at the Crowne Plaza in Richmond. The amazing staff made me want to only stay in Crowne Plazas from this time forward. At 1 in the morning the room beside me got really loud. I'm assuming they were returning from the bar to continue to party in their room. I called the front desk and they were VERY nice and sent someone up. I didn't hear anything else that night. The next morning I had a handwritten note from the front desk apologizing and they gave me restaurant vouchers for a free breakfast. Much appreciated and thoughtful!

Good stay in Richmond

Crowne Plaza has helpful & professional staff. My room was clean, & comfortable. Maintenance & house keeping had to come to work on the tv & changed out the coffee maker. They came within 15 minutes of my notification to the front desk. A front desk employee helped me to print out my boarding passes. They have a shuttle bus to drive guests within a 2 miles radius, & they drove me to the opera.

Arrived at the same time as several wedding parties using the hotel, so there was a 15 minute wait to check in. The desk person was very helpful though. Nice hotel but not cheap.

I needed a room.

While booking this room, the price went up 20 dollars within the 10 minutes of me searching. I just needed 1 room for the weekend. We got there and the room across the hall was a group of about 8 guys being extremely loud for about 5 straight hours so we moved rooms and then the next floor had two women talking and laughing loudly until after 2am. This hotel needs quiet hours and to monitor the hallways. The breakfast was big but it was 13.50 per person and I thought it was complimentary. The parking is a parking garage 12$ not bad but that should be free in my opinion.

Just okay

While the staff was kind and welcoming and the amenities and breakfast were nice, the room, although tidy, was dirty with marks and stains on the walls. We decided to pay a little more in hopes of staying at a nicer hotel, especially since it was our first time in Richmond and some downtown areas are a little sketchy in some cities. The area felt safe, but we didn't feel like we got our money's worth out of this hotel.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

We had a nice meal at Kitchen on Carey. It was about a 15 min walk. The bruschetta was delicious. We also dined at a burger joint just a couple blocks away called Capital Ale House. They had nice menu options, including a vegetarian black bean burger that was really good.

As expected

Staff was accomodating and friendly, allowing me an early check-in but the room itself showed some age. Clean and well appointed, but sound travels through the walls and the door to the room didn't seal at all, so hall sounds, and light came in throughout the night. All in all, the hotel delivered adequate value for the cost, but nothing to write home about

Down the street toward James river is a very nice island with trails and historical attractions. Worth the effort on an evening stroll.
