Scores of New Hotels for Downtown Richmond

3 posts in this topic

With the constant, positive press the city has received in recent years it is quite noteworthy that airport passenger traffic is steadily increasing and as a result an influx of hotels are popping up all around the city center.  

 

1. Courtyard by Marriott (135 room)

6.  Hilton Hotel

This is simply a proposed hotel in Shockoe Bottom that may or may not be linked to the baseball stadium debacle:

7.  The Doubletree is CLOSING!  

But not for long!  The hotel is about to begin extensive renovations and will rebrand and reopen as The Graduate Hotel (200 Rooms)

It's too bad that the Westin built new in the West End versus downtown.  

 

Also, I live across the street from the new Courtyard in Shockoe and the increased foot traffic in the neighborhood has been great.  

 

I hope that a massive hotel will soon build along the Canal Walk.  A draw for pedestrian and canal level activity would be huge.

I see you mentioned the possible hotel in Shockoe near the propose stadium. Well, I found these design's on Odell's website showing what the call "The Pavilion Residential Community" with up to 700 units. One of the images also shows a VCU logo on the top right corner. Makes me wonder if they would scratch the hotel and go for residential only.  Also, I wonder if they would develop this separate from the stadium.

Good observation.  Also, it was announced that the hotel would be a Hyatt and not a Hilton; either plan would be good for that area, however.
