4.0 Mediocre
Older hotel. Shower did not drain. Smelled a little musty. Breakfast was very limited.
10.0 Wonderful
The staff was excellent. Raven went above and beyond and made you feel so welcome. Utterly charming!
7.4 Good
Cons:Did a similar review for Expedia right after I had checked in. In my review I suggested updating some of the rooms and hotel features. My review got sent to the hotel staff immediately and they responded promptly. When we arrived downstairs the next morning for checkout the receptionist was gossiping with the bellmen about our review and speaking negatively about us. When she noticed we had arrived to the desk she confronted us about our review and said she had received it. She tried to make us feel uncomfortable and sorry for leaving them a poor review. Will not be returning to this hotel for this reason alone.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Elegant clubby atmosphere. Well appointed room and comfy bed.
Cons:Plumbing made noise during the night.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:-Great location -Beautiful hotel -Very friendly and helpful staff -Pizza deliveries right to room door
Cons:-Menu was not as expanded as I thought it would be -Reserved room w/ balcony. To our major disappointment, our balcony had a 5 1/2 foot wall that was not noted in advertisement - major let down.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Clean. Great location! Comfortable bed.
Cons:Broken coffee maker. No biggie, Starbucks is across the street.
8.2 Very good
Pros:Room / Hotel staff overall was clean and hospitable
Cons:I didn't like the fact that we were stuck in a room in the back facing a wall. I will probably go back to the Omni or try the Renaissance Hotel next time in Richmond. At least there you're not looking at brick walls. I parked on the street couple blocks up due to over priced simply isn't needed with the parking garages around.
8.0 Very good
Pros:Staff was friendly and helpful, room was clean and quiet.
Cons:Lighting in the room was not bright enough; at least one mirror should be available in the room, outside of the bathroom; headboard was not attached firmly so it banged against the wall with any movement(had to wedge a towel between it and the wall).
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Quaint and location was great! Staff was fantastic! Every one of them during our stay-- from the valet to housekeeping.
Cons:The noise from the street and the bed mattress seems to be old.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The staff was extremely helpful and willing to support with all our needs! Great location in downtown Richmond. Walking distance to great resturants and bars.
