Weekend in Richmond

The past few weeks I have been traveling and on the go nonstop. It seems like there has barley been enough time to breath between Thanksgiving and the Christmas season this year let alone Christmas shop for all those on my list. Phew!

After Thanksgiving in Florida, I flew back to DC and then headed to Richmond for the weekend to celebrate one of my close friend’s weddings. Everything took place in the Downtown Richmond area and I was lucky enough to be hosted by the Omni Richmond for the weekend.

For those of you who haven’t been to Richmond before, the Omni is in the perfect location downtown close to the train station, restaurants, bars and businesses. And while Richmond is less than two hours from DC, I felt southern hospitality at its finest upon walking in the lobby.

Not only was the staff incredibly friendly and accommodating, there was also a gorgeous fireplace and Christmas tree in the lobby to welcome you. After a very exhausting traveling day full of planes and trains, I checked in and settled into my room. To my very happy surprise, I was upgraded to a top floor king suite that was more like the size of an apartment than a hotel room.

I quickly indulged in a glass of wine and cheese plate in my room before heading off to kick off wedding festivities.

The next morning, I had scheduled brunch in bed a la a menu card that I left on my door the night before and it showed up right on time. Fresh coffee, an assortment of beverages and of course, perfectly scrambled eggs with cheese plus fresh fruit. Absolutely delicious!

It’s safe to say I will be back at the Omni the next time my travels take me to Richmond and I hope you book a stay too if you’re in the area to experience it yourself.

{Special thank you again to the Omni Richmond for hosting the weekend stay. All meals were also complimentary.}
