4/10 Fair

Disappointing
We arrived an hour early and was charged $25 for early check in. I would understand the early check if it was busy but this place was dead. Afterwards I found out that the restaurant was closed for the day. While the room was spacious, it was not clean. There were two drawers that would not close, got water in the shower took 10 minutes to get hot, and there was a mouse nesting between the walls that we could hear while sleeping. The ac did not work well. The pictures look nice online but this place is old and run down.

Richmond Historic District Cool
The location of this historic hotel with great modern updates can't be beat! What a pleasure it was to explore the capitol grounds right out the front door. And it was a close walk to great restaurants, and the beautiful trails along the canal. Hotel staff was so friendly and helpful, we really enjoyed our stay and the city of Richmond.
