I was here on business and throughout experienced service with a smile and felt valued as a customer and guest. Checked out very early and left for the airport at 4AM and even at that early hour had a friendly conversation with the front desk staff. Comfortable, spacious rooms. The hotel is quite unique in its history which I enjoyed reading about.

Great location, clean, excellent valet service, roomy suite and newly renovated! This hotel was everything we hoped it would be. Breakfast at the hotel restaurant was delicious. Easy check in and out too. No negatives at all.

I just checked into Commenwealth Hotel with an inspiring view of the grounds of the Virginia state capital, where Jefferson once walked. Welcoming me was Henry at the front desk, offering exceptional service of catering to my requests of a room with a view and early check in of my luggage. As for the hotel room, it is a suite with luxurious space. Most striking is the innovatine look to the room and the public spaces of the hotel. Yes, standardized chains offer predictability and comfort, by contrast, the Commonwealth is a classical hotel on the exterior and eye-catching experience of furniture and art inside the classical hotel. That said, the human makes the difference. Thank you Henry for your generous welcome.

Room tip: 505 = a room with a view

My husband has always wanted to visit Richmond and see the historic site. This hotel is in a perfect location. Right across the street from the Capitol. We have a suite which is very Spacious and comfortable. Wonderful bed and pillows. Staff very attentive and helpful. I would stay her again.

We could hear every word, sneeze, giggle, cough and snore from everyone on our floor. The walls were incredibly thin. View was terrible- right into another guest’s window that was only somewhat obscured by noisy HVAC machinery. Plumbing was noisy and hissed through the night. Shower handle and room door knob were loose when we arrived. The room was cute but the noise and lack of privacy were not worth a stay at the commonwealth
