    Marriott Richmond

    by

    I came here for a victory party in the grand ballroom in February, 2000 and the following year during the state party convention (held at the nearby Richmond Coliseum). The food served at the victory party was much like that at the George Mason University dining hall (catered by Marriott). You would think they would pop more for the food at their hotels where guests or people renting out the ballroom would be willing to pay more. The eve of the big state convention, the only thing that sets these rooms apart from other less expensive chains is they are ever so slightly better and the lifts are a little cleaner. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't enough to justify the extra price the delegation had to pay. On another occasion, I was there for a post-election panel discussion at lunch. The food was better this time than before (see the extra photos). We started with fresh seasonal tossed greens with dried apples, walnuts, and a raspberry vinaigrette; boneless chicken breast with a raspberry glaze served over couscous with portabella mushroom and artichoke relish presented with zucchini, squash, and red peppers. For dessert, there was a chocolate tray.

    Unique Quality: The Marriott Richmond was built in the mid 1980s as part of a downtown urban renewal project together with Richmond Convention Centre and the Sixth Street Marketplace (a good idea at the time, now defunct). It serves as downtown's largest hotel and is the anchor to the convention center. They are talking about adding on another 18-floor wing with the completion of the new convention centre. I guess the thing that sets it apart is the sheer height. From the right vantage point and assuming clear skies, you can get a good view of Richmond by day or night.

    Directions: Adjacent to the Richmond Convention Centre and the Coliseum.

Sixth Street Marketplace

by b1bob

Built in 1985, Sixth Street Marketplace was an enclosed 3-level shopping centre spanning 3 city blocks. There were several kiosks and shops including a food court. Connects the Carpenter Centre, the Richmond Marriott and the Richmond Centre. It straddled Broad Street and was linked by a pedestrian bridge. Sixth Street Marketplace did what it set out to do in its first few years of existence. However, when Miller & Rhoads and Thalhimer's department stores closed in the early 1990s, the aforementioned bridge became a bridge to nowhere. Sixth Street Marketplace failed to lure shoppers back into downtown from the suburban shopping malls. (At the time the two downtown department stores closed, yet another suburban mall- Virginia Center Commons- opened.) Ultimately, developers razed Sixth Street Marketplace in 2003 including the "bridge to nowhere" which some citizens wanted to keep as a symbolic gesture.

Hotel near Richmond

by ShadesFan

I will be traveling to Rosslyn, VA in April but can't check in to my hotel until April 13. I am looking for someplace about an hour or two outside of Washington DC where I can get a nice hotel room for not a lot of money on April 12th. I will only be there for a few hours in the evening and so don't care about the location. I'll be coming up I-95 so anywhere along the Interstate would be fine.

You might want to consider bidding on www.Priceline.com for a hotel room in PL's Richmond South, Downtown Richmond or Glen Allen zone which lie alon Route 95.

I just did a quick check on the Virginia etc. message board at www.BiddingForTravel.com (BFT) for winning Priceline bids posted recently for those zones. (BFT is an idependent website where Priceline customers post their Priceline winning bids and bidding strategies.)

These are the most recent winning bids posted for those zones:

Richmond South -- 2* Candlewood Suites $35; 2* Holiday Inn Southeast $37.

Downtown Richmond -- 3* Richmond Marriott $45

Glen Allen -- 2.5* Holiday Inn Richmond North $40; 2* Homestead Village/Innsbrook $26.

Priceline accepted bids are noncancelableand nonrefundable, but bids are accepted in most PL zone up to 6 p.m. on the day of arrival.

Priceline bidders frequently make cancelable reservations at a hotel then bid on Priceline. If they are successful, they cancel their original reservations.

I suggest that you log on to the BFT website and read the Hotel FACs and Bidding Tips sections and look at the VA posted winning bids before bidding on Priceline.

You may also want to consider staying in Ashland which is a few miles north of Richmond on I-95 at Exit 92. Lots of chain hotels right there.

RE: Hotel near Richmond

by VABORN

I would agree with Hopkid - if you don't care and aren't coming for the tours, Ashland is relatively close and you would pay less for a Hotel plus they have many restaurants/gas right off 95.....if you do decide to stay in Richmond - stay either downtown (pay a little more) just don't stay south of richmond - anything that lists as Jeff Davis Hwy (just not a good area).
