Great hotel in Shockhoe Slip. Accommodations and staff excellent. Walk to great restaurants and city attractions. Rooms are very comfortable and amenities are wonderful. Very nice getaway for a weekend. Highly recommend!

We recently stayed here for a night before taking a flight out of Richmond. My daughter goes to VCU so we have been trying different hotels in the downtown area. We thought that our room here was bigger and more luxurious than the Omni and Jefferson. The Staff were very helpful and friendly. The restaurant here had a nice variety to choose from and was superb. (Try their Crab Bisque!) It's location allows for walking exploration of the downtown area and is directly across from the Tobacco Company which was a bustling place to grab an after dinner drink. We will definitely stay here next time we are in town!

My husband and I were delighted by our entire experience at this downtown Richmond hotel. Friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Small, intimate bar. Restaurant that actually serves inventive, fresh and tasty food. Clean, comfortable room (ours had a private terrace as big as the room). The hotel is directly across the street from a popular night spot--so choose your room location carefully if you are sensitive to noise, largely a weekend issue. We will definitely return.

This was a very nice place. Very romantic. I love a nice robe in the room. the staff was very friendly. we did not eat there but I had a nice glass of wine at the bar. a glass was 14 so with a tip it was pretty pricey but exactly what I asked for! we will go back!

Room Tip: music pounded until midnight but it is downtown so that is to be expected

We just spend two great days on a "Girlfriend" trip with our daughters. The hotel staff was wonderful, we arrived late but they were all smiles and ready to greet us. The rooms were spacious and clean.

Ms. Beverly and Starletta were so nice.

Room Tip: We wanted adjoining rooms and stayed on the 2nd floor. It was very loud because you are in the city...

Rated as a 4 diamond hotel. While nice, we found the bed was uncomfortable, the "business center" was just a computer in the lower level, and one of the keys given to us of the room door did not work. While the room size was decent, it was not spacious. The bathroom, on the other hand was spacious. Because the hotel is only 5 stories or so, and is next to other much taller buildings, there is no view of anything except other buildings. We had a balcony, which was shared with the room next door. There was a fair amount of street noise from the restaurant across the street (it didn't help that the Redskins were staying at the Omni and the Redskin groupies hung out at the Tobacco Company.

On the positive side, the staff was very attentive. The room and furnishings were pleasant. The air conditioning was easily controlled in the room and it was relatively quiet. The hotel,is in a great location for sightseeing in downtown Richmond.

Like some other recent reviews, we obtained a "Capitol Deal" /"travelzoo" deal ( which many referred.to,as a,Groupon deal. At the discounted price, we thought the price was appropriate. Glad we did not pay full price.

Looking for a hotel in Shockoe Bottom and this was the place. Wonderful rooms with plenty of space. The cost was exceptional for a place this grand. The staff was accommodating and friendly. Excellent restaurants within walking distance.
