Historical Traveller Reviews of Omni Richmond Hotel
Great Locationfrom Zabelle
Parking is expensive but with unlimited in and out it was what I wanted and frankly with prices in New York and Boston at over $30, $18 is not a bad deal.
The free shuttle is a great asset too , we used it to drop us off at the Museum of the Confederacy.
There are many excellent restaurants in the area and even the hotel bar isn't bad.
I really only had one issue with the hotel and it was the restaurant. On our last day we ordered english muffins and a bagel with our complimentary juice and coffee and they arrived cold and not cooked. Gross. I called down and we had to bring them down to show them. Please!!!. We also only got one coffee and one juice. The other two days were fine but we didn't order food. The coffee and juice with newpaper was delivered right when they were scheduled to arrive.
I would not hesitate to stay here again especially if could get the price I got from priceline.
Great Hotel for the Priceline pricefrom NC_rider
Dirty, dinge-y but exceptional staff!from A TripAdvisor Member
The good things about the Omni Richmond? The free wireless internet and the great staff. Everyone is friendly, overly accommodating and personifies the true meaning of southern hospitality. From the housekeeping staff, the front desk, management and valet staff -- everyone is top notch and professional. Hotels should have their customer service training at the OMNI RICHMOND!
However, the highest marks are for the staff, only. If only the staff had better facilities to match their hard work!

Pros and Consfrom Anita40
My only complaints were the price of parking; $17. A bit much for a small city like this one. I also needed to use the internet to conduct some business but when I got to the "business center" I found one computer in a small room with a post-it note saying that they were having connection problems. When I tried to use the internet on the TV in my room it was completely worthless. The screen was magnified so that you could only see 1/6 of a web page at a time, you couldn't see the text it was so blurry, it took about 2-3 minutes to load a text page and it wouldn't let you chat with anyone, which is what I needed to do to take care of some business that I NEEDED to do. The last straw was when the TV started buzzing and the screen turned to nothing but horizontal lines of snow. I made them take the internet use fee off of my room charge when I checked out. They should not promote this hotel as good for business travellers until they fix this problem!
Aside from the internet problems, I was very comfortable at this hotel and will stay here again the next time I need to be in Richmond.
Not as luxurious as expectedfrom falconhtcm

On the downside: we were not able to get a nonsmoking room with a King-size bed. Also, parking fee is too high in comparison to $3 overnight parking across the street (hat tip from another tripadvisor user). Right next to a bunch of highways, the views are not that great.
All in all, an anjoyable experience at the quality hotel.
Thank goodness it was only one night.from A TripAdvisor Member
Upon checkin, we were not told of the unlimited garage use with the $19/day valet service. Thus, we spent about $10 extra on parking with the hourly rate.
When we arrived to the "smokeless" room, my wife immediately noticed a strong smoke smell in the room that stayed with us for the entire night and morning. The room itself seemed to be in decent condition, however, I did notice some stains on the carpet and chipped and cracked furniture. In fact, most of the furniture around the hotel seemed to be very old -- and not in a nice, antique way, but busted up like a cheap chair.
The elevators were extremely slow on many occasions. Is there only one elevator running at 4pm in the afternoon?
On Sunday, while in the lobby area of the hotel, we were approached by someone begging for change. There was not any security in sight, and thankfully, the man went away peacefully.
Having stayed at a very nice hotel the previous weekend, the Omni shocked us both into mediocrity. The Omni is not a step up from any other budget hotel.
Great hotel in a great locationfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Additionally, the omni special guest program is running a deal for 1/2 price weekends if you join before your reserve the room - worth the effort and got us a $56/night rate.
As for parking, use the $3 public garage across the street and skip the $19 valet or $18 self-park.
The only real negative is that the fitness center, located in an adjoining building's YMCA, costs extra and is only open limited hours.
A so-so expierencefrom A TripAdvisor Member
All in all not a bad hotel but certianly not a place I would stay again for more then $100 a night.
