I enjoyed my stay at Holiday Inn Express Richmond Downtown. The people there were friendly, service good and the room was comfortable. Breakfast there was good and convenient.

It was good. I would have liked better pillows. the ones we had were small and there were only two. Also the bed board was really dirty.

Many members of my family were in town for a family wedding over the holiday weekend. The breakfast selections may be limited, but I was most impressed by the friendliness of the staff. We were made to feel welcome by everyone from the front desk staff to the maids in the hallways. My sister rented the breakfast room as a gathering place for the family the evening before the wedding. Mike, from maintenance, bent over backwards to help us set up and get anything we needed. I wish I had the names of some of the others that were so kind and helpful so that I could give them the credit they deserve. We were sorry that the shuttle was not available the day of the wedding but we managed to work around it. Thanks so much to all of you.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bernie999 Friendly staff but this property is due for a freshening.
The furniture in the room and the bedding all showed their age through wear & tear. Crowne Plaza a block or two away – definitely worth the extra cost.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BMB122533 Nice, clean hotel - good location
We came into town for ht eRIver Rock Festival down on Canal Walk and the James River. Easy walk to the river as well as nearby restaurants and bars. Good service, clean rooms. Parking is $10 or $4 across the street. We had the jacuzzi tub room which was hilarious. Only issue - my wife gets excited when we stay at Holiday Inn Express bc of the pancake machine - theirs was not working on the Sunday morning when we woke up for breakfast... ) :

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rob4herd Breakfast too early
I stay at Holiday Inn's all the time and rarely have any problems. I always find the room ncie and clean as I did with this one. I usually stay at the HI Express because breakfast is included. On this trip to Richmond my wife and I had to leave by 6:15 and breakfast does not start until 6:30. No problem. We looked in there and found a few things that had already been set out so we sat at a table and ate these items. One of the employees came out and saw us so she turned the light on and appologized that breakfast did not start until 6:30 but help ourselves to anything already out. She returned to the kitchen and I overheard someone tell her no breakfast until 6:30! 6:30! 6:30! Then the lady that was screaming came out and turned the lights out. The first lady came back out and appologized and said that she could not turn the lights back. Who ever that was that was screaming and turned the lights out, it was not necessary as we were not asking for any assistance, food or even light. We just helped ourselves to what was already out. No problem except for the lady with the poor service attitude.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sorrythistime Needs management oversight
Closing down the main entrance for 2 days during a sold out week and forcing guests to walk through the parking garage to enter and exit the property should have been re-considered . Hot breakfast selections were limited, scrambled or prepared cheese "omlets" and bacon one day, mostly sausage patties other days, plain biscuits everyday along with the cinnamon rolls. Ran out of bananas on the weekend of a sold out house. Newspaper delivery was sporadic. Don't expect the shuttle service when it's not convenient - like on Sunday. One computer and printer in corner of the lobby for guest use.

Hello - I just want you to know that all your staff that was on duty during our two day stay was absolutely fantastic. With all the travelling I have done, mainly business, every continent except Australia, I (we) have never experienced the high quality of service exhibited by your staff. They were friendly, helpful and transmitted the feeling that they were genuinely happy to have us there with them. Our stay was totally enjoyable because of them. Thank you and please thank them. I asked the young lady at the front desk to do this on our behalf when we were checking out. I hope she did.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by DFWtraveler2014 No eggs for breakfast
This is an older building so not cookie cutter rooms. Mine was large and oversized. Felt great to have some room. The amenities were standard HI Express. The breakfast is standard, though do not like it. No tea selection, they did not have any eggs. Said they ran out of eggs from the weekend. I do not eat bread so nothing for me.
It is near some cool restaurants.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ****** dissapointing service
I stayed here this past Thursday night while on business in Richmond.
When I inquired at the front desk if there was local shuttle service, I was informed that there was, for a limited distance.
I was going to The Savory Grain on Broad Street for dinner.
The woman that was working the front desk informed me that I could not use the shuttle service for this restaurant as it was outside of their service area.
When I inquired what the service area was she replied that it was 2 miles from the property.
Her map was telling her that the restaurant was 2.1 miles from the property.
The software on my phone was telling me that it was 1.4 miles from where I was standing at the front desk.
Probably as the crow flies.
She very politely declined to accept my distance, and stuck to her stand that a .1 of a mile was too far out of the way for an HIG Rewards member to make use of their shuttle service.
I found this to be completely unbelievable.
I know that properties have to have rules and regs, but even if her map was right, and mine was wrong, the decision to not offer a ride to a local restaurant over .1 miles is pretty crazy.
Everything else about the stay was fine, but this I found to be very, very disappointing.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Momo1207 Not what we expected
We got to the hotel and we had to park on the street because the parking deck was to low it is less than 6 ft high and we payed to park in it they would not give us our money back for parking. The shower had not been cleaned. We also wanted to pay cash and they said we had to pay with credit card. We WILL NOT BE GOING BACK THERE !!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by shhwang Good but bad
I stayed one night with my kids at suite. Room had full of smoking smell when I entered the room. Even the hotel is smoking free. Tried to change to another room but all rooms were occupied. At front, a lady step speaks real fast and hard to follow.
Hotel location is good and breakfast is really good. But I would not recommand this hotel to stay, especially at suite room

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Claire22 Great hotel, exterior needs some TLC
Unfortunately, the exterior of this hotel needs some serious TLC. I'm sure it's a work in progress, as is most of Richmond, but there are a lot of improvements that could be made to the outdoor patio, stairs, parking deck, and landscaping. Also not in the best location, but convenient as it was within walking distance of the convention center. Otherwise, staff was very friendly and accommodating. Room was clean, but felt a bit musty. The air filters could have possibly stood for replacement.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jeny Being waken up all the time at night with all the unwanted noise
Unlike other holiday inn express, the room of this one in the downtown Richmond is really old. The air conditioner horns like a train. And that was not the worst part. Being waken up at night several times by all the unwanted sounds made me want to retreat in the middle of the night. Plus, this hotel charges 10 dollars for parking, I found that very unreasonable.
In one word, this hotel is overpriced and not worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sfogner Christmas Day =)
I was staying over Christmas and although there weren't as many breakfast choices as there usually are the staff were very welcoming and accommodating. The room was comfortable and when searching for a hotel I liked that they offered free internet, free continental breakfast and they had parking available for the night (at a cost of $10 though). It was a very safe feeling hotel, you had to have a hotel key to get to the higher floors from the elevator. I would recommend this hotel if you want to be in downtown Richmond. We were even able to find a restaurant open on Cary Street on Christmas day! Less than a 5 minute drive.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by stre weekend get away
This was a nice location, close to the James river and restaurants. The only downfall was the breakfast. We stay in many Holiday inn express motels and have always been impressed with the selection. This was disappointing, no hot water for tea, no bread, sausage, fruit. We landed up walking to Starbucks for fresh coffee and breakfast.

All good and comfy except for the heater seemed to be slow in heating up and was blowing most of the night, making it a little hard for our baby to sleep. And the breakfast buffet was missing eggs. Otherwise another great stay at holiday inn express!

Upon arrival at this property I was very surprised at the deteriorated condition of the building and general grungy appearance of the interior. The staff while polite was not the professional caliper I have come to expect from IHG employees. This is the first time I considered canceling my reservation and going to another property.
This location is overdue for physical and professional upgrades.

My friends and I stayed here on 11/8 and had the most wonderful expirence. The ladies up front were very helpful from the start when I called to inquire about a last minute reservation all the way to check out. Room was wonderful especially for one of or friends who was on crutches and needed ample room to get around. I have stayed at more expensive hotels with "great reviews" that were terrible stays. This stay left my party and me satisfied 100%. Will definitely stay at a holiday inn express again!!

I stayed over Richmond Marathon weekend. The hotel is walking distance to the start and from the finish. The staff was super helpful and answered all my questions about things from parking to restaurants and directions. Race morning was rainy and the front desk was handing out garbage bags to help runners stay dry. My room was clean & quiet. Having a microwave, fridge & coffee machine was terrific. I highly recommend and will definitely return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pasquale73 Very helpful staff and good location
Our stay was marked by great service and a comfortable room. The only negative on the room is that the HVAC unit fan was noisy and there was no option to manually set the speed lower. The staff was extremely helpful in assisting us in various ways. One staff member in particular, helped us by allowing us to get breakfast when our schedule required us to leave the hotel a few minutes before the breakfast bar opened. Overall, we would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone needing a place to stay in downtown Richmond.

No heat in the room and the coffee pot did not have the internal parts, so it was worthless. I informed the clerk on my departure but seemed less than concerned.
I doubt I will be back.
