We recently stayed 5 days and 4 nights at the Omni Richmond. I was a little leery after reading some of the recent reviews - however, we couldn't have asked for a better stay. Express check-in was fantastic, our room requests (high floor, corner room etc) were all waiting for us. ALL of the staff were friendly, accomodating and some of the best we have ever encountered. The free shuttle within a 5 mile area from 7am to 7pm was a plus!! We were going to walk to alot of the sites we wanted to visit on the first day - but Resi, the driver at this time, suggested the shuttle since it was 90+ degrees and several miles to our destination (it looked alot closer on the map). He handed us ice cold bottles of water and away we went. It was like having a personal tour guide : ) The Doormen and Bellmen were equally great! We used the connected YMCA fitness facility every day - excellent!! We used the valet parking ($20 a day - with in and out priveleges as much as you want vs $21 a day for self parking and no in and out priveleges - pretty much a no brainer) and by the time we took the elevator down to the lobby after calling for our car it was ready and waiting for us each time. You should join the free OMNI member program - it gives you free WiFi (otherwise it is $9.95 ea day), free breakfast beverage delivery to your room (at the time you select) each day - on the last day I hand wrote a request for 5:30am - even though 6am was the start time) and YES . . . at 5:30 there was a knock at the door and we had coffee and juice - WOW!! This program also allows you two garments to be pressed every day, a shoe shine and turn down service : ) The facilities were very clean and the hotel was right in the middle of the historic downtown area. There is a nice indoor pool and a large outdoor sundeck that we used one afternoon to relax and read. We felt safe in the evenings going to dinner and there were several quaint shops on Cary Street. All-in-all we have absolutely no complaints - we would definitely stay here again!!
