I stayed for one night but was very impressed and will return next time I am in Richmond. It was fun staying in such an historic set of buildings. I was in a garden room. The bed was a bit too hard but everything was clean and quaint. I enjoyed the complimentary breakfast. All staff members I met were very kind and helpful.
I paid for the valet parking since there didn't seem to be any convenient street parking nearby. I did not take advantage of their complimentary van service but I will next time. I attended a concert at nearby Virginia Commonwealth University and parking on campus was very difficult. It would be great to have them just drop me off and then come pick me up.
During the day, I found that the area is pleasant for walking.There are some beautiful buildings near there, including the (pricey) Jefferson Hotel. I'd feel much less safe at night. I didn't see any restaurants that were close by. I think I might use their van service for that as well.
It's really not all that far to walk down to the beautiful Capitol building. (Tours start on the hour).
I walked past the YMCA which was very close by, but didn't have time to use their services which are available for free for hotel patrons. The YMCA looked busy and pleasant.More
