Rated 5 out of 5 by BayouBorn Trendy and Pleasant; Super Pet Friendly!
Great Stay. This was our 3rd stay at the Richmond Westin and are never disappointed. It is probably a 15-20 minute drive from the airport. The hotel is nicely appointed with gym, indoor pool, restaurant, bar, Starbucks, and complimentary infused water in the main lobby. The hotel and rooms are undated and trendy. The room was super comfortable as was the bed. The shower is the over-head rain type in a tiled shower with glass doors. A robe is provided in the bathroom. Ample mirrors both in the bathroom and in the room. There are ample outlets for electronics and the wi-fi was easy to set up. Mini fridge and one-cup coffee maker featuring Starbucks brand coffee is in the room as well. The only disappointment (if you can call it one) was that there was not complimentary coffee available in the lobby each morning. We made the coffee in our room instead.
Room service is available and fairly affordable with a nice selection.
We traveled with our 10-pound service pup. Upon entering the front door we were handed a doggie biscuit-how cute is that? Staff were very receptive to our pup. They even offer a complimentary bowl and bed as well as a doggie hanger for the door to notify staff that a pup is inside.
Staff were extremely helpful. One lady in particular, used her card to activate the elevator for us so we didn't have to fumble for our card. She also later offered to dispose of take-out food trash when I exited the room to look for a trash receptacle. She was very friendly and ready to help!
You will enjoy your stay-don't hesitate to book your room!

Had a lovely weekend stay with the family. Lounge and lounge staff were amazing despite a soccer tournament being in town (lounge was crowded). They helped with everything and smiled the whole time.
Check-in was a breeze, and received a great upgrade. If you come to Richmond, stay here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by five5s A wonderful place to stay
The Westin Richmond is a great place to stay. I am here just about every week for a few days. The Westin Richmond has become "my Cheers) where everybody know my name. The facility is first class, but the people are even better. Warm, genuine, friendly and enthusiastic.
A wonderful place to stay.
You will love your stay and remember your Heavenly Bed!

I have stayed at the Westin Richmond at least a dozen times and it only gets better. The renovation was done right and the beds are even more comfortable than ever. The guest rooms and common areas are immaculate.
The staff is truly what makes this place a home away from home. In the years I have been coming here there is a very low turnover in staff; that says a lot about how a place is managed.
I would highly recommend this property and their restaurant to anyone coming to the Richmond area,

Rated 4 out of 5 by Budsmom Check in was awful
I've stayed at this location several times for a yearly conference and have found until this time everything went smoothly. I have a service dog who has always been with me. During my check in I was told I must fill out a pet form for my service dog. I told the front desk person several times he is not a pet, none of the things on her form apply, he is always with me 24/7 which is what a service dog does yet she continued to call him my pet and want me to sign her form. I then talked to a person who said she was the manager when I checked out about it and felt I got insulting excuses for their seeming lack of training about service dogs.

I stay at spg hotels weekly. It had been a while since staying here--but I fell in love all over again. Really nice renovation. And the beds are even more heavenly then other Westin beds I've been too!! For a business traveller this hotel is perfect. Staff couldn"t be nicer. It feels like home away from home.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Airius1 Outstanding As Always
The quality of sleep you receive at Westin is unparalleled. The staff is great. The food is exquisite. Just an outstanding hotel chain overall. I was glad that they finally built one in my hometown. I don't have to go far to go to one. It's good for a great, short getaway.

The hotel experience met all expectations. The room and bathroom were very clean and spacious. The only thing I had a problem with is they ran out of the turkey burgers on the room service menu. Overall, I will return and recommend to family and friends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CKLambert Short stay - but great hotel
My wife and I were catching a train out of Richmond at 3:30AM - so we didn't have much time to spend at the Westin Richmond. Needless to say what we did experience was wonderful.
Beautiful hotel lobby. Great check in experience. Club lounge was nice and not overly crowded for evening hors d'oeuvres. Pool area was nice (hot tub just slightly too hot).
Restaurant was off the charts. The chef even prepared a special scallop appetizer for us that was brought to our table (no charge).
Overall great experience. Thanks Westin Richmond!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BusinessTravelerV Amazing service and staff for extended stay business travelers
There is no doubt that this is the best Westin I have stayed at (and I have stayed at many Westin hotels). The service here is exceptional and so attentive. Everyone, from the General Manager, the Front Desk Manager, Room Service, and the Service Express attendants are unbelievable responsive to any guest need and take care of it within ten minutes. They even arranged for a mini-birthday celebration in one of the conference rooms within a five hour notice and got a cake with candles. The rooms are nice with big bathrooms and plenty of lobby space (indoors and outside). Some of the call-outs on the hotel furniture that I really like compared to other Westins are a full length mirror in the bedroom, a table stand in the bathroom to put extra clothes on, weight scale in the bathroom, and a desk pad on the table so you can work on your laptop in bed (who doesn't like doing that). Location is great as well. It's near a Walmart, Starbucks, Chipotle, and Target making it very easy to pick up toiletries and other things that you may have forgotten to pack. It's also a 10 minutes car ride away from Short Pump, which has a nice outdoor mall and good restaurants. If you are in Richmond, I would forgo the hotels and downtown and stay here instead (even though, it's ten minutes north of Richmond). Also, this Westin has one of the better club rooms so great breakfast in the morning. Don't get Valet. If it seems that all the close parking spots are full, just swing to the parking lot in the back because no one parks there and it's still close to the hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Marinedad1 A phenomenal second home.
The Westin Richmond is the most phenomenal place to stay. Our family has had the honor of being a part of a stupendous experience at least twice a year ever since they opened there doors. Andrew is by far the best manager of a hotel in the world and his staff bar none is the best always making our families stay to where we consider it a home away from home. Richard is always going the extra mile just to make sure we're settled in. We stay at alot of hotels and no one has even come close to there talents not to mention the high quality of the hotel it self. Y'all rock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Rach10 Absolutely perfect
This hotel was one of the BEST I have every experienced. I have traveled to many places, both domestic and overseas, and I'm familiar with top rate hotels. The Westin Richmond is on par with any of these wonderful hotels, with the exception of a much lower room rate. From the excellent service to the fantastic food to the wonderful rooms, guests feel pampered and rested. A very pleasant stay and if I'm ever in the area again, I will be sure to stay at the Westin Richmond.

Second time in two months staying at the Westin Richmond. Andrew and staff were amazing. Room was super clean. Had dinner and drinks at the bar which was top notch. Bartender was great. Everyone is professional. I cannot say enough about my overall experience. Will most likely be back in August.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Visitor237 Comfortable, pleasant hotel
Nice hotel; reservation not quite as expected. Asked for two queen beds and one king, adjoining rooms. Got two rooms with doubles. No one offered to fix the mistake.
Had been traveling for a week when arrived, no laundry service on site.
Great staff, very pleasant and polite.

The Westin is a very nice upscale presenting hotel but even with the excellent PR... I believe the prices charged for the location is too much.

AS ALWAYS THE WESTIN IS THE BEST HOTEL IN THE WORLD. WE ALWAYS HAVE A GREAT TIME WHILE THERE. THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS THE BEST THERE IS. EVEYONE FROM RICHARD TO THE BARTENDER AND RESTAURANT STAFF WERE EXTREMELY COURTEOUS AND PROFESSIONAL.
WE ORDERED A NICE DINNER BUT THE PORK CHOP ORDERED WAS EXTREMELY WELL DONE AND WE COULDN'T FINISH EATING THE REST. THE BARTENDER WAS VERY RECEPTIVE AND MADE THE BEST DRINKS EVER TASTED. I ALSO LIKE THAT YOU HAD CHANGED BARTENDERS FROM THE LAST VISIT WE HAD LAST YEAR. THIS WAS A GREAT MOVE. YOU GUYS ARE THE BEST. THANKS AGAIN TO THE ENTIRE STAFF AND THE MANAGEMENT TEAM.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wigstheome Solid Stay
Checked in on a Saturday afternoon. Check in was quick and simple. My Platinum status was acknowledged, although my preferences were not addressed and I was not offered an upgrade (a perk, not a privilege so no big deal). Unfortunately, the room I was given (725) suffered from significant elevator noise, including the sound of the cabs rising and falling and opening and closing. When I called the front desk, I was promptly relocated to another room (750), which was much quieter (and meet my Platinum preferences including a non-adjoining room). The new room was fine, and generally seemed clean, although there were cobwebs in two of the four corners of the bathroom. The concierge/attendant in the executive club was very gracious and helpful. Checkout was simple, and my bill was in order.

This was my first stay---definitely not my last! Was wowed from the moment I entered the lobby. The concierge was fabulous! She handled my transportation needs and ALWAYS addressed me by name. The service on the club level was superb. The room was nicely appointed and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Ordered room service and the server was delightful. 5 star all the way!

Rated 4 out of 5 by ConnieS11 Restaurant was disappointing
The rooms and concierge/front desk service were excellent. The restaurant was terrible. Had 2 meals. Both were very disappointing. Lunch took forever to order and then arrive, and food was cold. Did not have time to send back because it took so long. (Had to get in to a conference.) Breakfast next morning was a disaster for entire table. Response of restaurant manager was not satisfactory. We had some kind of gross sludge in the coffee. Coffee getting cold due to wait time for creamer. My order came out of kitchen right but fellow diners (4) all had trouble with orders.
