Hilton Richmond Downtown completes multimillion-dollar renovation
Renovation includes 1,400-square-foot meeting space
Hilton Richmond Downtown’s multimillion-dollar renovation is complete, New Orleans-based management company HRI Lodging LLC announced March 24.
The renovation includes a new lobby bar and lounge and hybrid meeting space, as well as updating the fitness center, indoor pool and guest room bathrooms. The 250-room Hilton Richmond Downtown occupies the former Miller & Rhoads department store building at 501 E. Broad St.
“This renovation will significantly enhance the guest experience and serve the needs of savvy business and leisure travelers,” John Cario, the hotel’s general manager, said in a statement. “Given the property’s history as the iconic Miller & Rhoads, we knew the importance of preserving its unique character while ensuring modern day relevance.”
Hilton Richmond Downtown has more than 10,000 square feet of meeting space, including two ballrooms. Its new hybrid meeting space, called Ensemble, is 1,400 square feet and has an open space for collaboration, a projector display, a full kitchen and dining area and a private breakout space with a TV and conference table.
Columbus, Ohio-based private investment firm Rockbridge Capital LLC owns the hotel, and HRI Lodging LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of HRI Hospitality LLC, provides hotel management services.
