The Omni Richmond (Va.) Hotel completed a $10-million guestroom renovation. The hotel renovated décor and amenities in each of its 359 guestrooms, including hallway corridors and five suites. 

The hotel’s design bridges its history to its present, with details inspired by tobacco, hemp and flax iron. Corridors and guestrooms embrace the vivid blue water of the James River while the in-room artwork reflects the city’s 300-year legacy. Renovated guestrooms now include 49-inch flat-screen TVs, Keurig coffeemakers, desks, club chairs and ottomans. Bathroom upgrades include new vanities and backlit mirrors, rain shower heads and makeup mirrors.

Overlooking the James River in downtown Richmond, the hotel is situated at the center of Richmond's financial, judicial and legislative district, near the Virginia State Capitol and financial institutions and federal courts.
