Nice Place

I was really surprised when we got this hotel for the price we paid. Well worth the money, and I recommend getting a room on the James River side; the views are very nice.

great hotel but avoid the 12th floor

we wanted a hotel that was conveniently located for travel to various areas of town and this was the best site for us to go south, west, and east without using a lot of gas and wasted time in traffic. We asked for a smoking room which were all located on the 12 fl. However, it was the noisy floor in the hotel and we had a very restless night, had to call the desk 3 times and thought about calling police. The desk mgr and hotel staff tried to take care of the problem guest and we were given 2 breakfast buffets for our discomfort. We thank them for the courtesy.

Good Service

My girlfriend and I decided to take a weekend to just get away from the hustle and bustle of our life and couldn't have been happier. The hotel was located within walking distance of where we wanted to eat and the hotel itself was great.

relaxing hotel

Hotel was relaxing. Front clerks took their time and answered all questions. They had a free washer and dryer for guests to use. The pool and hot tub was great. Close to the airport and the highways. Cheaper than most hotels. Decent place to stay.

Very nice comfortable stay

The staff were pleasant, but did not give much information about the hotel, like their amenities. The room was very clean and comfortable.
