“Nice hotel with Huge Rooms”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

Stayed here recently for work. This hotel is in a great location if you are going to be going to many of the state government buildings/offices. It is right across the street from both the Capitol and Supreme Court and many others are right in the area.

The staff here is always friendly and helpful (I have bugged them more than once to send a fax for me - no charge). We actually overstayed our welcome a little bit (got held up and did not get to check out until about 30 minutes after check-out time) and the staff did not say anything about it, just checked us out as usual. I was relieved because I was worried about not being out in time.

The rooms are huge with a separate living area, hallway with bathroom, and bedroom. The beds and pillows are comfortable. Most everything is a little bit outdated, but not damaged or dirty.

They have recently added a new fitness area. It is still small, but slightly larger than the old area and I appreciate that it is available.

While I usually do not get a choice when going to Richmond for work, I am not disappointed when I am told reservations have been made here and if I did get to choose, this would definitely be a good option.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the Capitol if possible, it is a nicer view than the back side of the hotel an...

Numerous members of my family and I stayed at the hotel. The suites are great, with a lot of room. The hotel and restaurant staff are friendly, attentive and kind. I was made to feel welcome. Thanks to James P. for encouraging this review. Order the fruit and cheese tray for your room and it will be waiting for you when you get there! The downtown location is convienient and the view of the Statehouse was lovely. I will stay at Commonwealth Park Suites Hotel on my next visit to Richmond, Virginia.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite facing the Statehouse.

I have used this hotel numerous times over the past years on business trips. The rooms--suites, actually--are roomy and pleasant and the location is very good for transacting business or attending meetings in downtown Richmond. The staff is pleasant and accomodating. One of the most pleasant is the manager of the small restaurant, "James." James is genial, pleasant and helpful. His cheerful personality brightens the mornings at breakfast for my wife and me.

Best part of the hotel is the staff. Everyone is very friendly. Especially James P., in the restaurant....can't get much better service than what he provides.

We stayed a night at this hotel and in all it was a decent enough pick. Could’ve done with breakfast included with the rate and we opted to park across the street for free rather than use paid parking (the city is dead at weekends so no need for paid parking). It is right across from the Capitol but we didn’t get a view of it from our room. It was walking distance to a couple of the sites but there aren't many places to eat or drink nearby… though Richmond is pretty sleepy anyway. It was clean and comfortable but somehow didn’t meet expectations. Staff were so so, poor coffee in the rooms, but does have useful free wi-fi.

NIce hotel with accommodating staff. We arrived, and immediately upon entering the hotel we were asked if we needed help with luggage or parking. Our AC was not working so they quickly got us transferred to a larger room within 15 minutes. The hotel is older but nice. The bathrooms had bidets and towel warmers and were very clean. The beds were comfortable we had a fridge and microwave along with a small coffee maker. There was no view, but it was quiet and we felt very safe. The only problem would be the elevators. They were very small due to the age of the building so if you had a lot of luggage or a large family, you may have to make two trips.
