Hilton Garden Inn - Richmond / Innsbrook: "Good corporate hotel" Richmond Hotel Tip by mrtourne

Richmond Hotels: 38 reviews and 45 photos

A perfectly comfortable hotel with very friendly staff, the Hilton Garden Inn in the Innsbrook district of Richmond (far west end) is a good alternative for business travel. I stayed here for 3 nights this week - the room was very spacious, with full cable (70 channels), central AC, a small refrigerator, microwave and coffeemaker. The hotel has the usual small gym, but also adds a small swimming pool and spa to the ammenities. A pantry right next to the front desk covers some last minute needs, but just in case there's a CVS in the corner where you can get snack and other sundries at better prices.

The other great feature is the free high speed internet access in the rooms - the speed was great with barely a slowdown at peak time (around 7-8 PM) but much better than some of the cable modem systems you have in other hotels. There's a remote printing capability as well, where you can send a document to the printer in the business center downstairs for free - a great convenience

I didn't try their breakfast but it seemed decent - the usual assortment of breakfast buffet items. There's plenty of quick food options in the immediate area as well as some bigger restaurants. There's also a gas station right around the corner, great for filling up before heading for the airport.

The only blemish - the shower wasnt too good, pressure was on the skimpy side and the shower head seemed to be a bit busted. I am sure I could have had it replaced though...

Unique Qualities: Very clean, new, free high speed internet, free document printing. Small swimming pool in the facilities.
