My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in April 2011. We booked the hotel blind from Hotwire and the prices including tax came out to be about $210USD for 3 nights. We are extremely happy with this hotel and its service, and we will definitely be back.
Check-in was a breeze. Parking requires a key card entrance, so check in first before heading to the garage. Gated parking is $8/day plus taxes. There are 2 floors for parking and the key card access wasn't the most responsive. There were plenty of parking spaces during our entire stay.
Our room was on the 3rd floor near the elevator and it was spacious and clean. We had a king size bed and a chaise and there was plenty of room to walk around. The bedding was soft and comfortable and the soft and firm pillows provided were much appreciated. We had no issues with in room complementary wi-fi, although there were times when connection was slow. The black out drapes were a nice surprise! And even though we were close to the elevator, the hall noise wasn't really an issue. One of the nights our neighbors were rowdy (sounded like they were playing drinking games and banging on the walls), we called the front desk when they persisted until 1:30am, and within 5 minutes, they quieted down. We were very impressed with the efficiency of the hotel.
Bathroom was spacious and had a huge counter. Tub was a decent size and the water pressure was just right. We made coffee with the coffee maker, and the coffee bag the hotel provided wasn't so tasty. They also provide 2 bottles of water in the room for $2.50 each.
It would have been nice if there was a mini-fridge in the room. There are about 40 channels on tv. Our room had an umbrella that we used during our stay, so that was very nice. We had one robe in our room, and we saw that other rooms had slippers as well. Not sure if that's in all their rooms, or you have to request it. The gym is located on the 2nd floor, and has 2 treadmills, 2 bikes and 1 elliptical machine. They provide towels and water at the gym. Mcdonald's is right next to the hotel. Great location to the Richmond area restaurants/shops. Aberdeen center is only a 5 minute drive.
Overall, we had a very comfortable stay here and we highly recommend it.
