This was my first stay since the renovations. The Hotel is very attractive; perhaps sleek or elegant would not be too much of a stretch. The rooms are still enormous, and the bathrooms are completely redone. Best of all, the same folks are still working...More

The room is really a suite with a sitting room and separate bedroom. The room is spacious, bed comfortable and great value for the price. The location is across the street from the Virginia State Capitol Building and there are restaurants close by.

Classic hotel with feel of old Richmond-great staff, gracious sized suite with all amenities. Staff was attentive and congenial without exception. Only drawback was parking not convenient without valet at $20 per night. Will be returning to see the results of their renovation.
