“Just what we needed”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

Was looking for a nice place to stay close to the Nattional and gave the Marriott a try. Perfect location. Staff was really friendly. Nice clean room. Bunch of field hockey players staying for a tournament but it was very quiet. Pricey parking but the room rate was great. Definitely would stay here again.

Central to downtown and right by the coleseum , this hotel is a good location for anything you want to do in the city. Walkable to VCU. The hotel has all the ammenities you would expect from a Marriott.

We stayed at the Richmond Marriott for the Virginia Wine Expo. There was a special rate, so very reasonable cost.
Pros: clean room, very quiet (I didn't expect this because of the expo), Starbucks in the lobby
Cons: you can either valet or use public parking--the hotel doesn't have it's own garage so you pay (a lot $18) each time you leave on a weekday. Weekend rates are cheaper. There is an enclosed walkway connecting the garage to the hotel and the convention center. The garage locks the entrance to the hotel at 10pm. Your room key is supposed to let you in but it was broken. A hotel employee said to use the aluminum can to prop the door (I feel so safe). The restaurant didn't serve breakfast so you either has room service (exorbitant for a 2-3 star hotel, or you can have a sugary Starbucks calorie trip.
I'd probably only stay in this hotel again for the convention center. If you have a convention, I'd highly recommend it for value and convenience (too bad about breakfast).

Consistent with Marriott quality although not as nice as the resorts or vacation club properties. Clean room with nice decor. Drive up and check-in was a hassle...better with two people: 1 to check in and the other stay with car to drive around the block. Staff was pleasant.

Reviewed 24 January 2012

The Marriott Hotels are my favorite places to stay based on the overall amenities, decor and service. However this one left me wanting more. The downtown location was probably not my best choice due to it's close proximity to the Convention Center and many people of questionable integrity coming in and out of the lobby. The parking was close, however the price changed over night while we stayed and when leaving we were expected to pay double. We of coarse refused since we paid the night before however this was not what we would have expected. The decor in the lobby was nice however the lobby had a bar/restaurant r in it with an open concept which made being in the lobby an unpleasant experience. When I asked for a copy of the "Marriott Story" I was told by the front desk that I could not have one. This was interesting to me and not at all what I expected. I would choose the Marriott in Short Pump if choosing the area again.

Room Tip: I would choose the upper floors since this is downtown location and not far from the VCU hospital.

The hotel is nice but is not competitive with the surrounding facilities. It does not include wireless, microwave or refrig. Next door the Hilton does and is equal to the quality, pricing and location to the convention center. Marriott needs to update their amenities to stay competitive. Additionally Marriott decided the day before our arrival to not run the shuttles for the weekend because "there were too many people in the hotel". One reason you stay at a downtown hotel is to take a shuttle because taking the car in and out is expensive. I liked the service and facilities but it is simply not competitive. They assume since they are next to the convention center they do not need to remain competitive.
