Decent hotel but good employees

The hotel was nice for the most part other than one of the elevators weren't working. The employees were very friendly to us. Overall it was a good hotel with good placement. Right in downtown.

Nice play to stay!

Cons: The smell of gas from the van that picked us up from train station
Location: A lot of eating establishments but no place to park! So thankful hotel had another van to take us places
The experience at the Holiday Inn Express downtown Richmond was great! The only bad part was when they came and picked us up from the train station in a van that stunk like gasoline! Almost made us sick so thankfully the ride wasn't very far to the hotel. Other than that it was great. The staff went out of their way to let us know accommodations for places to eat and go visit. Would definitely stay there again.

Good choice

Pros: Price, location, breakfast
Location: One of the closest places to eat was called the 3rd St Diner. It has a very interesting history and even some ghosts!
This hotel was a good choice for us. We wanted to be where we could see more of Richmond on foot, yet we wanted somewhere reasonably priced. The hotel was over all very nice. The room we had on the 6th floor had a nice view of the city lights at night. It had been recently fixed up, with nice touches, new lampshades etc. Cleanliness was OK. Do note that the hot water was VERY hot. Parking could be a real problem for people with large cars. We drove in with our smallish pickup truck and the antenna was hitting the ceiling of the parking garage, it has only a 6 foot clearance. The elevator can only be used with the room key, an extra safety feature, but perhaps a sign of a troubled area. There were plenty of places to eat that you could walk to within 15 min, but it is in a neighborhood where you might not want to walk alone late at night. The breakfast that was included in the rate was very good, something for everyone. Warm items were included, sausages, gravy, omelets. We also used the free hotel shuttle that will take you anywhere you want to go within a 2 mile radius. All the people working there were very pleasant and helpful.

Excellent Hotel

I was not sure what to expect after reading earlier reviews of this hotel. I was happy to find a clean hotel, newly renovated rooms, and a friendly staff. The staff at the front desk were very helpful when I needed directions to get to an event. Even the cleaning staff were cheerful and friendly. I plan to stay at this hotel during my next visit.

Terrible

Awful. Old old old, they are trying to renovate, but that seems to consist of just painting over the filth. The bathroom was dirty, hair on the towels and floor, mildew on the tile. I would NEVER stay here again. AWFUL.
