    • 4.0.Fair

      We received a handicapped room, which we are not. They were behind on rooms being ready. The room was okay except the bathroom was terrible. It had all kinds of handrails for handicapped but lacked a simple towel bar to hang a hand towel to dry your hands after washing. The sink was small and no vanity or room next to sink to put anything down like makeup bag or even a toothbrush. We had to use the toilet to hold our toiletries. Was very disappointed. I felt price was too high for what we got.

      Big disappointment

      The bathroom was filthy. The shower curtain had come loose at one end. No shampoo in the dispenser. The elevators don't automatically retract when something is blocking like my suitcase (could have been any extremity). This was a big disappointment given the cost of the room.

      Not bad

      The place was ok but the carpet was wet. There was a heavy rain the day before and we were on the top floor so I’m assuming it was from that.

      Wonderful little place.

      I’ve stayed here a couple of times and the staff is nothing short of amazing. Every employee is friendly, knowledgeable, and very respectful to LGBTQ guests. Will stay here every time I visit Richmond.

      Great lobby, rooms are a little outdated. Pillows had makeup stains on a couple of them from previous guests.

      Don't go out of your way for this one.

      The hotel was fine, but over-booked with weddings. We requested our care from the valet service and was told a valet was unavailable. Accordingly, we were unable to visit a museum that we wanted to see. I went downstairs and saw that they had one valet on a night when there were 6 wedding parties at the hotel.

      Decent hotel for Richmond VCU and Fan

      Overall - not bad. We will stay again. Great location for VCU and the Fan.

      Front desk personnel wasn’t very attentive, we couldn’t get a wagon for our luggage, and had to make multiple trips. Was told they had 3 for the whole hotel. Had a problem with my room key, and the reservation person did something and said it would work. Unfortunately it didn’t. I gave up.

      Good night’s sleep.

      The property was conveniently located and nice. It was a bit of extra-thick paint to hide some sins, but still pretty nice. I little more of an investment in the rooftop railing and pool would have been nice. …at least dust off all the spiders/cobwebs from the rooftop railings.

      Parents Retreat

      I gave my daughter and son in law a night away for their anniversary. They had a corner room and they loved it. The bed was comfortable and they enjoyed the rooftop pool and bar.
