The hotel is very easy to find off the highway. We called ahead to have the room ready a little early, which it was. The valet will park your car upon check in. The hotel is decorated nicely in deep rich wood tones and is very welcoming. We had a very large corner room with 6 large windows on 2 sides, and a bonus sleeper sofa, which worked well for our group. The staff are friendly and very quick to address your needs. The beds were comfortable and room had a keurig coffee machine. There is also gratis coffee in the lobby.
We decided to eat at The Dining Room in the hotel as we had been walking around all afternoon. We loved all the entrees and the fried green tomatoes. The food was very tasty and had a lovely presentation.
while walking around town, go to the observation deck in the City Hall building for 360 views of the city, or to the Kabana rooftop bar for drinks and views.
I would recommend staying here.

"This time, not so great. But they fixed the issue."
We have stayed here twice before and loved it. It is within walking distance to VCU where my daughter is now a freshman. This time, a loud noise woke us up at 3:30 a.m. and kept banging until we called, and the maintenance guy had to fix it. It was a loose screw. It literally sounded like a washing machine was in our room washing loads non-stop. Also, the air wasn't working so we had to be moved to another room for our second night, which was an inconvenience. We had to beg to be moved-their first solution was to bring us a big dusty noisy fan! The only reason I'm leaving this review is because these issues could've been handled better. They did discount one of our nights for the noise and moved us because of the air, but I had to ask for both of those things to happen. They should've thought to fix the problems themselves. And they kind of acted like we were complaining for nothing, but air not working when it's over 90 degrees outside and a continuously loud noise waking you at 3:30 a.m. and keeping you up all night are not little issues!
Overall, the staff is nice, the rooms are clean, and they have a good free breakfast. That and the fact VCU is a ten minute walk away is why we love staying there. The hotel is old and has a lot of charm, so that is nice, too.
We found out (after staying there 3 times for orientation, audition, and move-in, all VCU-related events) that they give a VCU discount. We will know now for next time! :( If there is a next time- still debating.

This was one of the best hotels I've ever stayed in! The staff was great, it is super modern and clean, it is located such that you can access MANY things to do and see easily. The room was very comfortable and clean. I can't wait to stay here again!

First hotel I did not want to leave
My daughter locked herself in the bathroom to watch the mirror tv. She would have stayed there forever. Really close to great restaurants and the concierge gave us some really good recommendations.

We liked the layout of the hotel, the digital elevators, and the comfortable room. The rooftop bar was a delight. And the morning breakfast was tasty and inviting. The staff was very welcoming, as well.
The only problem was that we did not receive our usual honors points for staying there.

The hotel shares its building with another hotel. Each uses a different floor for the lobby. This hotel uses floor 2. Elevators are digital, punch in floor you need, you will be directed to appropriate elevator. Staff is warm and professional. Rooms are immaculate. Breakfast is great. At 10'pm the hotel fire alarm went off and we were evacuated in our pjs down 12 flights to the street while firefighters investigated. No one came out to tell us we could return to our rooms and we waited quite a while among all the beautifully dressed club goers who were there. So, I can report that their fire alarm system works well. It's loud and scary. It will wake you up. No worries. We didn't get apologies or free parking or anything to take the sting out of the experience. Besides that, we liked the hotel. Parking costs about $16.

During the American Civil War, Richmond was the capital of the Confederacy. Today, it is a center for arts, commerce, and state government. The Canal Walk, running 1.25 miles along the James River, is a trendy zone of restaurants, shops, and residential lofts. Other attractions include St. John’s Church (the site of Patrick Henry’s “Give Me Liberty” speech), and the Edgar Allen Poe Museum.
