When planning a visit to Richmond, Virginia, the state capitol and former capitol of the Southern Confederacy, take some time to investigate hotels in Richmond. Richmond hotels are numerous and there’s at least one or two to fit the style and budget of every Richmond visitor.
Richmond Virginia hotels, especially those hotels in downtown Richmond Virginia, can range from the historic to the newly built and renovated. For a more historic experience, try the Jefferson Hotel, a historic hotel opened in 1895. The Jefferson offers 264 guest rooms and suites, each with marble bath, mini-bar, bathrobes, in-room safe, CD player, dual-line telephones with voice mail, Frette linens and cable television with on-command movies.

Another example of historic hotels in downtown Richmond Virginia is the Linden Row Inn. This hotel was originally built in the 1840s and is a boutique 70-room hotel located in historic Richmond. Features include fireplaces, chandeliers, and high ceilings as well as all standard modern conveniences, in addition to free continental breakfast.
Hotels in Richmond also include those built in the modern day, such as the Marriott Residence Hotel, the Radisson, the Red Roof Inn and more. For hotels in downtown Richmond Virginia that cater to the budget minded, try Econo lodge, or Days Inn, economical hotels that offer all standard guest amenities as well as outdoor pools. For many, Richmond Virginia hotels are more about a place to lay your head than somewhere to luxuriate, so don’t worry if your hotel doesn’t feature 400 count linens, even at budget hotels in downtown Richmond, you’ll feel comfortable and well taken care of.
