I used Hilton points to mostly pay for my stay, first time doing that This seems the best rated hotel in the area and it was packed I’d appreciate more parking, there was a big truck with trailer across 7+ spaces on Sat night and I had to circle the building twice before parking

Breakfast was good overall, I didn’t appreciate having to look at Fox News though! We liked the look of the pool but did not have a chance as our trip was to visit Kings Dominion and there was also a major storm during our visit Room was quiet, except some noise from the stairwell door I was pretty happy with the overall size of the 2Q Bed room and bathroom, very clean too


The room is very humid It’s more obvious when I’m in bed and step on the mat with bare foot – feeling like the room was flooded beforeWhen I was opening the fridge, a cockroach ran out

It’s still somewhere in the roomThe coffee machine is missing the plate thus not functioningThere is no iron to use (nor closet); they advertised it in their room “clean stay” stickerThe accessibility bath tub seat is not properly installed The movable accessibility shower head is not working The plug/stopper is broken as wellThe dinning room staff kicked my service dog out (she was just sitting quietly under the table; I was sitting at the conner of the dinning area and no one else was in that area)My partner had to bring the food out of the dinning room and to talk to the front desk The front desk staff asked us if the service dog provide physical assistance We bring our service dog to many hotels but never received discrimination like thisOverall, the hostel staff could use some training on assisting people with disabilities and the hotel amenities could use some fixture to make sure it’s at least functioning Costumers didn’t pay this much to be treated badly in a hotel that their basic needs are not met

I got married here 4 years ago today and when I say it was the most wonderful experience of my life I’m not exaggerating The staff was absolutely amazing and there isn’t one detail about my wedding or reception that I would change I relive this day with my family and friends all the time and to this day I get compliments on my wedding the location how accommodating the staff was and how wonderful and clean the entire hotel was

Everyone I worked with there was extremely professional and friendly And the Fragrance the minute you walk in is amazing and it’s all over the hotel Most of my guest spent the night and enjoyed their stay My husband and I had such a marvelous experience that we went back for our first anniversary and plan to book again next year for our 5th wedding anniversary You will not be disappointed if you decide to stay a night, a weekend or make a lifetime memory! Thank you indefinitely to the Marriott Short Pump staff! I am forever grateful!

This was nastiest Marriott I have ever stayed inWhen we walked in the hotel room it was so hot the ac was on 60 in the room already set to that before we came in and it was so hot but I’m pretty sure the ac was broken in the entire building So walking into the room all the lights in there where extremely dull and dark could not get any bright light

The room smelled musty and unclean The couch in the room was tears and rips and stains all over it The towels where so old and gross that there seriously ripping in half it was like paper The wall paper was ripped and stained all over the room I felt like I was in a motel not a high end Marriott I would never ever stay here again Not up to the Marriott standards for a hotel More like a remodel that ran out of money If I did not check in at midnight I would have gone somewhere else but it was way to late and I was way to tired

Jeff Glancy

Terrible experience We had to change rooms because the bed was so bad in the first room Also we booked online with rewards points and they double charged us and also charged the card we put on file for incidentals for the nights we already paid for

We have called 10 different times and each time they acknowledged the double charge and told us we would be refunded It has now been 3 months and no refund We had to dispute the charge with our credit card company and have provided proof of the double charge and they are fighting the charge back This also happened to another couple in our group We feel like this hotel is committing fraud Do not stay here

This is the second hotel stay I’ve had in the Richmond area (previously stayed at the graduate) and for the price, I must say this is the better pick It’s a quick drive into downtown Richmond, the immediate area did not feel threatening for two woman travelers and the hotel is well maintained and cleanIt is atrium style so I will say you can hear the lobby and bar area but honestly it wasn’t too loud as to be an issue

We got the two bedroom with the pullout and it was perfect for our situation The pullout was nothing fancy but I wouldn’t say it was uncomfortable by any means The bathroom is quite small but did not pose an issue to us Having a door between the two bedrooms was perfect for privacy and both rooms were quite largeThe lobby was great and even offered a nightly snack, we didn’t partake but I believe it was things like a vegetable and meat and cheese tray Contrary to other reviews there is definitely a bar, pictured belowMy only issue and one that definitely could have been avoided with a question on my part was the deposit being the same price as the the entire stay so you’re essentially having double your funds unavailable at once Not an issue for everyone but definitely something to ask about or keep in mindThe front desk staff was very friendly and helpful although the housekeeping staff did knock multiple times one morning when we had a do not disturb sign on the doorOverall I recommend this hotel and I would stay again next time I’m in town

Leslie Theodorakakos

First I would say the front desk staff was very nice…always smiled and greeted us The breakfast was also very nice We were in town for a graduation and it was Mother’s Day weekend, so the hotel was crowded and VERY noisy on Saturday night

We went to graduation on Sunday and when we returned, our room had not been cleaned When I called the front desk for towels and coffee on Monday morning I was told that, since the start of the pandemic, rooms have not been cleaned daily because staff shortages I understand, but there are no signs in the room letting guests know The rooms are comfortable but quite outdated No bottled water was provided and only shampoo and conditioner as far as toiletries were provided The bathrooms are extremely small For the price we paid, I wouldn’t recommend the hotel nor would I stay again


I read several reviews and decided to stay here to see how it was Overall experience was EXCELLENT I would definitely stay here again

Jason the guy who checked us in went above and beyond They even started up the two free drinks at 530pm Indoor pool was fantastic Continental Breakfast was AMAZING Even though its a fancy hotel, I think to go plates for breakfast would be great

We checked into the hostel by chance while driving though the area on our way to Florida The gentleman at the front desk was extremely friendly and very nice He gave me a choice of floors to be on which was appreciated

The room was standard size, with 2 queen beds a desk & dresser & fridge together The beds were comfortable, but I hate the 1/2 pillows The room & the bathroom was clean If I have a complaint there were many scratches and spots that looked like stains on the walls The place could use a new coat of paint Breakfast was a simple fair of waffles, cereals, muffins & breads, instant oatmeal There were no eggs or hot foods, but there were those microwaveable sausage, egg & cheese on a croissant They were actually pretty good It was a Friday night, so it was roughly $180 for the night Not terrible

Don Bisi

My only concern is the fraudulent billing The room and breakfast were great and I have no complaints about the stay I later checked my credit card and found an additional $15 charge

I was told it might be a hold, but it did not drop off, and when I called the hotel I was told that the owner added a $15 charge for a missing “small soap dish”? I was never notified of the charge He had email and phone number, but all he really needed was credit card number I wonder how many people get billed additional without knowledge? If anything was really missing, then it was gone before we got there

Airyl Reed

Staff is friendly, patient, helpful and the only good part about this hotel The building itself is extremely outdated The fitness center had rusted equipment that isn’t even worth using (only had 3 cardio machines and one seated cable machine, no mats, dumbbells, or even a bench)

Despite seeing the house keeping staff work hard, everything felt super dirty (probably because of how old it is) We even had a blanket from the closet that smelled like urine and our bathroom towels had stains on them Also despite what it says on the website, they did not have their signature eggs for breakfast, the only hot item was if you made a waffle Highly recommend choosing elsewhere for your hotel

Not sure what i liked more, the place, the room or the stuffSuch a nice place to stayGot there for one night, the front desk lady was super helpful and placed us in a high floor room with amazing city view

The valet service is super efficient and help us get things from the car three timesAt the bar, the bartender was very creative, but also managed to serve us with a refreshing and on spot old fashionAll their recommendations were just on pointThe room, actually, suit we got was so nice, from the spacious living room, the extra nice bedroom with city views, the shower was so nice and welcomingThe stay was just a pleasure

Sean Sullivan

The staff and property were amazing I stayed for one night and then came back a few days later to stay 3 nights and it was awesome Sarah was an awesome bartender who gave me great recommendations on where to go in the city

Mark was the nicest and most attentive valet there is Jessica was always checking in to see if I was in need of anything The rest of the staff that I did not catch their names were extremely warm and friendly Top notch service and amenities, will definitely be staying here again when I am back in town for business

Brenda Jackson

Awesome experience Staff was great at all levels but valet parking attendants were even greater Rooms are fantastic, large spacious and up to date

Excellent location and safe to walk and run Elevators are small but everything else makes up for it Not convenient to public transportation but only a short walk or drive to restaurants, quaint shops and the convention center Loved it

This hotel is amazing! My daughter and I had a wonderful experience The rooms were clean and staff were extremely accommodating especially one of the managers, Megan She was very pleasant to deal with

Location is prefect as it is next to the convention center and right in the downtown area Would definitely use this hotel again in the future

Philicia Ross

Overall, I had a good time Wouldn’t recommend for more than a week? Or if you’re going to be active in the city then this hotel will be fine Stayed at this hotel for a weekend to celebrate a birthday and what I will say is that the hotel is great for it’s convenient location and it recently has been remodeled so the atmosphere is wonderful

Everyone we encountered staff wise was very nice but Ray, who checked us in, really went above and beyond So I hope he gets a promotion Super friendly, got us set up, explained everything in detail and for me I love that type of service and rapport whenever I visit another city of town that I’m unfamiliar with Me and my partner instantly felt welcomed One thing about Marriott is they will give you just enough space so I don’t go in expecting any more or less The water pressure in the sink wasn’t the best but luckily the shower pressure was fine As I mentioned before, the location is super convenient, you are in walking distance to alot of food places and sight seeing The only thing I found myself a little frustrated about is that I had to call a few times to get service and then there was a charge on the bill that didn’t belong and luckily that got sorted fairly quickly so I recommend to really pay attention to the charges during checkout

Jeff So

You can tell the hotel was recently renovated and is very clean during our visit Fall Line restaurant bar is great place for a bite, and their M Club is opened The M Club has a variety of juices, bottled water and Pepsi products stocked

Coffee and teas during breakfast hours Hot breakfast buffet is great (eggs, sausages, bacon) Didn’t see any desserts though for our 2 night stay Room is a bit small for sure 2 double beds instead of queens No microwave Small bathroom with shower (not tub) Very convenient location with the convention center right across the street connected with a skybridge

An overall great experience! Everyone was so friendly and service was great When I arrived in the room my mini cooler wasn’t working, I called the front desk and a maintenance man arrived within 10 minutes with a new one Check in and out was easy

The room was clean and beautiful, Starbucks in the lobby Valet was amazing as well Thanks for a great stay, if I need to stay in Richmond again, this is where I’ll be!

Angie Dotson

The common areas of the Omni Richmond are lush and peaceful The room was comfortable and clean We were on the side of the hotel overlooking the highway and enjoyed the view of the river, the trains, and the area surrounding the city

It was nice during the day and stunning at night The location is great Be aware that the parking deck is not associated with the hotel itself, so if you self park is is essentially at least $25 per day vs $30 per day plus tax and tips to valet park If you want to go out expect to pay about $5 per exit in addition to the $25 you’ll pay overnightIf we are back in Richmond, this will be the place we went to stay

Natalia Mesfien

My father stayed here for 7 months on business in my teens and I stayed with him for long periods of time so got to know the workers They are amazing, terrific, perfect especially Stewart he is amazing the best of the best The setup great valet expensive but they are very nice

I’m staying here now again with friends and insisted to come here and so glad I did The restaurant, Starbucks is great and if you are nice at check in they give tickets for free drinks at Starbucks or at the bar It’s a nice location to walk or drive around The restaurant is great and there is a amazing chef and very nice aesthetic There is a Wells Fargo bank across from that Next to the restaurant there’s a store that sells smoothies and açaí bowls All of that it’s amazing love it second home There is also great gym pool etc

Stayed here for a few nights over Thanksgiving It was fine Not great

Not bad Just fine The rooms we had were good Clean, comfy and nothing to complain about The facility itself? It’s tired It’s like the conference center that time forgot about Brick sidewalks settling too far, creating uneven paths Weeds in the landscaping beds Wallpaper nicked and ripped in the hallways Any of these crucial things? No, not at all But just not as a pleasant as other places Perhaps the prices (which are good) reflect that? In summary, the Burger King cup in the picture was there, on the post in the parking lot, the entire time we were there No staff thought to remove it and throw it in the trash/recycling I think that’s a testament to the place A fine place but the details are overlookedThat all being said, it’s a good value and I will being staying there again because I’m OK with the flaws Others might not be and should know in advance

The Hotel is outside the city of Richmond but just a short drive The hotel buildings and grounds are very charming

All the wait staff were wonderful and very accommodating to your needs The food for breakfast which was included with our stay was very good Plenty of choices to choose from on the buffet Dinner in the Tavern was very good too Everything was freshly made

Recently stayed at the Virginia Crossing Hotel The hotel is under some renovations as with any construction project there are nuances that are part of the project so because of that the hotel itself rates a ⭐️⭐️⭐️However, the staff at Virginia Crossing Hotel are the real gem of the hotel

They are fantastic! Seriously, I have not met a kinder, friendlier, and hospitable group of people I did not take all staff members names but, Tamara, Dakota, Katie, Carla, Taylor, Selene, and so many others that I didn’t get their name are truly of a servant heart! ✝️⭐️They wanted to truly take care of me and even exceed expectations! Oh my gosh, I love them! And because of this the hotel gets ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️The hotel is very close to many things one would frequent in their own town like gas, grocery store, fast food, and nail salons, etc So if you left home without ityou could find what your needing within a mile of the hotelBlessings & safe travels 💫

A solid 45 stars Pros: the shower is absolutely amazing!! A rain shower waterhead with tremendous water pressure

The rooms have extra large windows for a great view The beds are super comfy and the pillows are like sleeping on a cloud Very clean hotel with complimentary shuttle and complimentary bottles water (total thumbs up on that) The true jewel at this hotel is the friendly and helpful staffCons: The a/c in my room did not work well, the bartender closed early one night and would not even allow me to get a couple of bottles of beer to go because he already settled his books for the night and parking is an additional feeOverall it was a very pleasant stay and I would highly recommend this hotel

Tracey Greene

I went here for a tax lien conference that they were having The hotel staff was exceptional When I asked for directions to where this conference was being held everyone was exceptionally friendly, and the attire of the staff very clean cut

I was very impressed with the hospitality that they showed me I had issues with the parking ticket I don’t go to hotels like this often so I ended up placing the ticket in the machine when I was supposed to just take the other ticket they gave me and scan it at the gate but anyway the young lady took care of everything and straightened it out for me I thank you for the great experience that you provided I just want to say each and every person that was at the desk was phenomenal And the doorman I really like him Very friendly individual Thank you all for the great experience maybe next time I can get a room and just kick back and relax

Gregory Clarke Money Mindset Academy

It has been a fine experience staying here for a couple of days during our running around Richmond The room is comfortable without feeling cramped The amenities offered are in line with some of the other brands with the Marriott family and the parking has been an added value to the stay

If you are a business traveler especially if you are doing business in the Downtown area of Richmond then the Delta Hotel should be an option for you

I am SO impressed with our stay here I picked Aloft because I was staying with my dog and I would definitely choose to stay here again First of all the staff was so friendly, accommodating, and helpful

The room was clean and a great size with spaces to get work done! It was so easy to park the car in the garage (and free) Last but not least the location was awesome Right outside the hotel is green space and a dog waste station There are a ton of restaurants to walk to or to just get exercise since it is in a mixed use community We LOVED our stay here!!

Kennedy Pino

When my family and I arrived at our hotel, we were quickly checked in and given a room When we went up to the room, it was still dirty from the previous guest We immediately returned to the front desk and reported what happened

There was no apology for the inconvenience but, we did quickly receive a key for another room Unfortunately the breakfast supplied by the hotel was quite expensive! A single banana was $125 and small cup of oatmeal was $350 My family requested more towels the second night of our visit and the staff reported they did not have any clean towels to give us In the morning, around 6:30am, we went back to the front desk in hopes to receive fresh towels but, staff explained they would not have any clean towels until 9:00am I would not recommend staying in this area with young children as the hotel and close by restaurants play loud music at night that can be heard from even the top floor Nice workout facility!

willam gowen

I’ve stayed before and I like the hotel, however when the reservation is paid for in advance and I arrive to check in only to get charged almost the identical amount of reservation(5 dollars less) for “incidentals” which are usually a $50 charge, even the front desk employee said so, when I ask him about it and show the amount being charged he’s just dumbfoundedNormally this wouldn’t have been such an issue but this money is well was for my daughters birthday party tomorrowShould this incompetence affect my daughters birthday this will be my last stay and will never be recommending this hotel

Stayed here for 4 nights last weekend of June ’22 for a lacrosse tournament and a trip to Kings Dominion I can’t say enough about the front desk staff, super friendly and helpful The room/bathroom was clean and I would say updated, but I don’t know when it was built

So I will just say it was up to date It had a wall mounted 50 inch tv and the bathroom mirror was a nice touch Also, the location is great It’s close to everything you need because you forgot something, from sporting goods, grocery stores, restaurants and a very nice outdoor mall

The only reason I am giving this hotel a two star review is because of the location, other than that it was an actual nightmare To start off our stay here, my family and I got stuck in the elevator with our friends When the elevator finally situated itself and let us out, a woman standing on the floor told us that it has gotten stuck multiple times that day

With that knowledge we went down to talk to the staff at the front door who did nothing about it No closing the elevator or telling guests that the elevator may trap you for a while Saturday afternoon we asked the front desk for towels for the pool We were told there was towels out there already, funny enough there was no towels (of course) So we go back in and ask for more and after having eyes rolled at us someone was sent out with hand towels for the pool My friend was swimming in the pool after all that and got a shard of metal stuck into his toe and the light for the pool came out of the wall and was floating next to the wall Let’s just say that was the end of our time in the pool This experience has made us rethink ever staying in a Holiday Inn again

At this location: Front desk staff when I arrived was great Breakfast is the best of all the chains especially for vegetarians Love the pancake machine

The rooms look pretty new, nicely maintained Love the KeurigIHG: The only thing missing to make this my favorite and the superior chain is access to streaming programs from the TV like Netflix or Amazon

From the moment we walked into The Berkeley Hotel, we felt welcomed Alfreda greeted us so warmly, I felt like I was staying at a family members house The woman who helped us with checkout was also super nice, but I didn’t catch her name

The hotel definitely has a vintage feel, which my husband and I really enjoyed The room was clean and comfortable and had such a charm to it The location was fantastic We utilized a nearby parking deck and walked where we needed to go; there are a lot of cool places to visit on/near Cary Street We really enjoyed the vibe of The Berkley, and will definitely stay there again when in Richmond!

My boyfriend and I liked our stay here We arrived here on Tuesday and stayed for a night I have a service dog with me so the front desk lady got me a corner room which is quite spacious

The room is clean and neat Bathroom is huge The bedding was very comfortable too It’s nothing like a motel I was on a road-trip and definitely experienced what a motel is like This is way much better than a motel… Berkeley may be a bit old but is totally comfortable The location is good too Many restaurants close by We had no issue finding street parking here during our stay


My husband and I stay in Richmond 2 or 3 times a year Just stayed in the Berkeley Hotel for the first time We will definitely be back

The woman at the front desk was helpful and courteous We were allowed a very early check in with no problemsThe location is great – close to restaurants and shops Within walking distance of the riverThe room was clean and the shower had plenty of water pressureSome of the fixtures were slightly worn, so I did not rate the hotel as 5 out of 5, but that would not prevent me from booking this hotel again

A newer hotel that opened during the pandemic still has a new feel Open parking, nice staff, clean and fresh Evening the stairwells are fresh and clean with soft carpet

One bedroom suite is a great choice, with plenty of room and is very comfy I wish the fridge had ice makers, especially because the ice maker on the 3rd floor was broken during my entire stay However, the appliances are full size The staff is very friendly Comfy bed, very nice fitness center with plenty of equipment for a hotel of this size, the towels are still newer and soft The breakfast is hit or miss Some days it’s eggs and sausage, other days they have wrapped breakfast sandwiches There are a few restaurants close by, both sit-down and fast food

A.K. Walker

I loved my experience here My room had everything I needed (Sink, stove, appliances) It made me feel at home

The coolest amenities I seen was the basketball court and stainless steel outdoor grillsMorning breakfast is always a plus They provided everything I needed and the food was flavorfulI liked the design and setup of my room so much, I had to record it This is a memory I surely want to remember Google should allow us to post videoMy only reason for rating the service 4 of 5 is because there was an extended time where the host was not at the deskI most certainly will book my next stay at the Residence Inn by MarriottI’d suggest you do too It’s worth it

My husband and I stayed for a month, with our dog, while waiting to move into our new house Our suite with mini kitchen was perfect! Everything was cleaned on a regular basis The daily breakfast was wonderful

But, best of all was the staff! We only had two minor problems the whole time and they were rectified swiftly The staff was super friendly and kind

The suites are in run down condition It is a pet friendly environment and all you hear at various times of the day and night are dogs barking, growling, and/or howling This is NOT a place to stay if you have any type of sinus or allergy issues

I repeat: DO NOT STAY HERE IF YOU HAVE ANY TYPE OF SINUS OR ALLERGY ISSUES! The deadbolts barely turn, the anchor for the latch doors were barely in tact Our room was absolutely horrible The carpets need to be replaced The bathrooms were not cleaned properly The mattress on the pull out sofa was covered in yellow stains and needed to be BURNED! There was a group of 7 or 8 girls who were allowed to run up and down the staircase and throughout the halls with no adult supervision They were loud and disruptive As a Marriott member, I was disheartened to see this location in such conditions (Please note: there is a Residence Inn by Marriott hotel and a Courtyard by Marriott hotel alongside the The Residence Inn & Suites where we lodged and what I am writing this review on)Those, I didn’t have the opportunity to check out The ventilation system needs to be replaced and ducts deep cleaned The first room I was in had black dust on the bed and tables from where it came out of the air ducts The ceiling showed signs of water damage as well The gentleman was quick to switch my room However, the bedding was quite uncomfortable I broke out in hives For $300/night, customers should be getting better accommodations

My dear friend worked here and she has a physical disability I have known this woman since she was 7 years old and she is the kindest, sweetest, most loving and caring person I have ever had the privilege of knowing This hotel management is ABLEIST and fired her

Not only this, but they blamed her termination on her behavior towards guests, stating lies about her character The management here has treated her badly since the beginning of her time there I am disgusted and appalled My friend is the most innocent and considerate person you will ever meet She only ever treats others how she wants to be treated I will not let this go lightly and am of the mind to contact the Better Business Bureau If you have loved ones or know of others with disabilities, do not insult them by supporting this disgusting hotel and their shameful management SHAME ON YOU, MARRIOTT!

K. Nguyen

The room was ok The first room we got, the A/C didn’t work It took several calls and complaints to management before they switched rooms for us

Management keeps saying they turned on the A/C and that it was smart despite us saying it wasn’t running at all The second room’s cleanliness was a bit questionable and there were some smells and food stuck behind the doors Breakfast was the usual that you would find at many Marriott that offer free breakfast The pool was a bit cloudy more than I would like

I love this hotel! My stay was very luxurious, clean and every amenity was available for use The room itself was decorated very well and very functional for working and relaxing I love that there’s an indoor pool and jacuzzi and access to a washer/dryer to wash my clothes during my visit

I was able to use the computer to print with great ease Hot breakfast was available, but my only suggestion to offer other meat options other the pork and having a small amount of vegan cheese available upon request I was very limited to what I could eat to ensure a hearty meal because the main options were pork

Amber S.

Stayed for the weekend, Friday night to Sunday Greeted with a smile and staff was very helpful Was allowed to change rooms upon arrival then previously booked (2 beds not available when booked)

Enjoyed the breakfast but beware coffee was very hot Hotel was clean and comfortable, worth the money Blankets on bed were a little light, if your cold natured I recommend bringing a blanket My friend and I did not get to enjoy the pool or hot tub due to hours Wish it was open a little later, maybe 10p to 11p for Adults only It would be nice to relax in hot tub after spending the day exploring And pool/hot tub were closed on Sunday which was a bummer because we wanted to use hot tub before checking out since check out is 12 pm (which was great) It’s near many local restaurants and bars so we loved its convenient location Definitely would recommend

Chad Desorcie

We stayed here 4/4-4/5 2022 I would recommend this place to to anyone that would love to kick back and relax go for a swim or maybe use the hot tub The room was big with everything you could ask for Was trying to hook up Xbox for the kids and they sent maintenance right up and he took care of it

Great job Breakfast was great and place was clean Great job to All of you that make this happen keep up the great work We will be back
