Richmond Hotels

A blend of the old and the new, with a good old dose of Southern charm, Richmond is the warm and welcoming capital of the Commonwealth of Virginia. One of America’s oldest cities, its glorious architecture, monuments, and quaint neighborhoods reveal a centuries-old history, whilst its multi-story urban epicenter boasts a cornucopia of 21st century offerings. From sleek museums and first-rate restaurants, to eclectic shopping and rafting on the fast-flowing James River – ‘River City’ offers plenty to get stuck into.

Things to see

Set within a modern architectural masterpiece, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts houses a world-class trove of artworks and decorative objects from around the world. With exhibits ranging from African Art to Art Nouveau, the collection even includes several opulent Faberge eggs. For history buffs, the Museum of the Confederacy is not to be missed. Thoroughly detailing the Confederate States of America and the American Civil War, artefacts, photographs, and manuscripts detail life, war, and politics in the 1860’s. If you’re in need of a little peace, take a tranquil stroll in Monroe Park. Surrounded by the Virginia Commonwealth University Monroe Park campus, the pentagonal-shaped parcel comes adorned with lush laws, leafy trees, and a decorative cast iron fountain. For a glitzy evening’s entertainment, Landmark Theater is the place to be. Housed within a dramatic piece of local history, the popular venue plays host to musicals, theater, and concerts.

Hotels in Richmond

Southern hospitality abounds in Virginia, and the hotels in Richmond are no exception. From contemporary and chic to historical and elegant, the city’s luxury accommodation spares no creature comfort, with on-site restaurants, swimming pools, and indulgent full-service spas. The more affordable hotels in Richmond offer a comfortable stay too, whether you opt for quiet locally-run guesthouse or an amenity-packed chain name establishment. Those seeking a thriftier stay will find no shortage of cheap and cheerful inns and motels, though many of them sit a few miles out of the city center.

Where to stay

Alongside plenty of places to eat, shop, and be entertained, a hotel in Richmond’s high rise downtown area keeps you close to the city’s best attractions. At the heart of the district is the Roman temple inspired Virginia Capitol Building, and a few blocks away from it, the 1740’s stone house that contains the Edgar Allan Poe Museum – not far from where the writer himself once lived. The historic portion of downtown includes the Shockoe Bottom area, with its Italianate brick architecture and cobblestone streets. Restored and revamped, its historical facades now house a fashionable collection of boutiques, restaurants, and galleries.

How to get to Richmond

Those coming from further afield can jet into Richmond International Airport, a convenient gateway around 7 miles from Richmond’s downtown district. Well-connected, it provides links to many major US cities, including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, and New York. When you’ve arrived taxis, shuttle services, and rental cars can all whisk you into the action in no time. The city is also reachable via the Greyhound bus, the Megabus, and the Amtrak train, with the latter making a stop a few miles north of downtown. For those driving in, the city is situated at the intersection of Interstates 64 and 95.
