As one of the oldest cities in the United States, Richmond has a lot of heritage to explore. It is also an important administrative as well as economic center of the country. A trail of delightful museums and monuments, coupled with a bustling art scene makes the city worth a visit.
Linden Row Inn
If you want to experience the rich heritage of Richmond yet don’t want to spend much, consider Linden Row Inn. It is a classy Victorian era building and each of the rooms are also adorned with valuable antiques. It offers complementary breakfast, high-speed internet, and health club privileges through the local YMCA. It is also centrally located and some of the most important attractions such as the Edgar Allan Poe Museum and the Museum of the Confederacy are not very far from this hotel.
Richmond Magnuson Grand Hotel and Convention Center
Richmond Magnuson Grand Hotel and Convention Center is a good option for business travelers. It offers free Wi-Fi, local calls, and a business center. There is an indoor pool, fitness center, and spa facility to relax after work. It can help you escape the usual hustle bustle of the city but it is still close to important landmarks such as Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, Country Club of Virginia, and University of Richmond. The rooms are pet-friendly too.
For a perfect stay at heart of the downtown at reasonable rates, look no further than Richmond Marriott. In fact, it is connected to the convention center with a skywalk and most other major attractions are also nearby. The rooms have climate control, premium cable TV, and internet access. There is an indoor pool, a fitness center, and a sports bar to keep you busy. However, do note that the hotel is smoke-free.
Americas Best Value Inn
If you are on an extremely low-budget, you should consider Americas Best Value Inn. The rates are as low as $50 in this hotel but that does not mean that the rooms are devoid of modern amenities. Surely it does not have the usual frills but the rooms are comfortable and you get free Wi-Fi as well as cable TV at that price. Also, the desk remains active 24/7 and they can help you in all kinds of ticket booking. The Virginia State Capitol is not far from here and there is a bowling alley, a golf course, and even an ice rink nearby.
The Jefferson Hotel
Finally, if money is not a concern at all and you want to experience the best Richmond has to offer, go for The Jefferson Hotel. The rates here are higher than most other hotels but there is a reason for that. It is a historical venue with an opulent setting that can never be found in contemporary hotels. The rooms are furnished with all the modern amenities. A comprehensive business center caters to corporate travelers while the rest can just relax at the indoor pool. There are two restaurants inside and the quality of food is taken very seriously by this hotel.
