Nice hotel.

Stayed here one night while in Richmond. Plenty of street parking if you don't want to valet. Room was clean and comfortable. No fridge or microwave in the room. I'd stay here again if I come back.

Wasn't up to Doubletree Standards

The shower had mold, the floor was uneven and the carpet had loose threads. The toilet sang when flushing it and I had trouble with the shower (keeping the shower head from flopping). I parked on the street but they charged me for parking. When I drew this to their attention, the bill was still incorrect.

Pretty good- a little expensive

Hotel experience was okay- hated that there was only on street parking. However, there is valet that is between $10-$20. Other than that everything was good and I liked the location.

A little disapointed

Staff was excellent, room was clean but thought for the price you pay for a room there should be a blow dryer. .fridge or microwave what I thought all hotels have as a standard.Shuttle was nice but I thought $20 a night to park was rediculous. I also thought 4 dollars for toast or $12 for pancakes is insane. Last but not least NO installation in walls dont find it apealling to hear my neighbor going to the bathroom.

Great convention location

I can't say enough great things about the valet staff, although I had a hard time swallowing the $20 a day parking fee. They were friendly and very accommodating. The front desk staff could be friendlier, but were very busy so that could explain their shortness. I loved that they shuttled me every day to the convention center. One tip- bring your own coffee maker or plan on purchasing out. The coffee in the room was awful!

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

If you're in town for a conference, they will shuttle you for free. So helpful!
