By applying his 'immense powers of concentration and memory' he managed to finish 19th in has class at West Point. Fought in the Mexican war and met Lee there. He retired from the Army and became a professor although his pupils nicknamed him 'Tom Fool' because of his teaching style and his idiosyncrasies, like lecturing with one arm ...
Finished the tour early and it was so nice I thought I'd go for a walk to Belle Isle. There is a footbridge suspended under 2 freeways to get to the island. (Getting the road lingo here) Wee bitty worried I'll be all American in another week!!
The bridge was busy with leisure walkers, runners from the nearby university and cyclists. The park is not much as it used to be an industrial hub and has some rusty buildings preserved as a landmark. ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Omni Richmond
I came into Richmond with my mother who had business meetings at the Omni, so naturally we (are currently) staying here as well! It's a lovely hotel our room is a corner room with windows covering 2 of the 4 walls....the bathroom is very large and the meeting rooms are nice....as for the previous remark about the business center, if you have a laptop they have DSL plugups AND wireless net in the rooms(for free), the power stays on no surges. They also have a hotel van that will take you anywhere within 5 miles of the hotel, that will definatly get you to Cary street which is full of of about 100 eclectic stores (semi-pricey) but well worth the visit. This will also get you to Virginia Commonwealth Univ. if you're here for college visits... also if you're flying not driving well there's not a $17 fee!! ....and just for the humorous side of my review...my mother does forensic science so I did a "black light test" on our room...it passed with flying colors...NOTHING strange!! The staff is excellent.
Looks like I'll have to spoil the good reviews. Here's the good I found during a 2-night stay with my girlfriend....EXCELLENT downtown location. This place is within walking distance to just about everything in the Shockhoe Slip/downtown Richmond area. Beautiful lobby, friendly staff, friendly bell service.
Nice Hotel in a Nice City
I stayed at the Omni for 2 days over the holidays. The hotel is really lovely and the staff was very nice. The hotel is well located but he area seems a bit desolate at night. This was the first time I was in Richmond and I was surprised by how nice and interesting the city is. I walked all over and enjoyed different parts of the city. I was dissappointed that the Art Museum was closed (on a Tuesday.....which was rather strange) because I heard that they have a fine collection. All in all I enjoyed my stay in Richmond and at the Omni.
Great Staff & Comfy Room
This was a pleasant experience, from the moment we walked in and were warmly greeted by the desk clerk. Check-in was fast, and the room was spacious and had a nice pillow-top king bed, which felt great after coming back from a concert at Alley Katz. While riding the elevator down on our way to check-out, a staff member asked how our stay was. Hint: We parked in a garage right across the street -- $3 for the night. Nice accomodations, convenient location, + great staff puts this hotel at the top.
I stayed here on my wedding night and got a great room I believe on the 17th floor. We were very impressed with the hotel and really enjoyed our brief stay at the Omni. By the way--we got a great deal for our room through Priceline. So do some research before you pay full price.
Great experience, but sticker shock!!
We stayed at Omni to attend a wedding. The service was wonderful, as were the banquet facilities and the indoor pool. We had a lovely room, but it did have the smell of lingering smoke even though it was a non-smoking room. Our bathroom, although not modern, was luxurious with a TV. The staff was helpful with directions and much of downtown and the canal restaurants were within walking distance. The breakfast buffet was one of the best we've ever tried. The only cons were a $10 a night overcharge from the price listed on the OMNI website for "fees" and the $17 parking charge a night, which was also not noticed anywhere. We would stay there again, but would ask beforehand about any hidden costs
Very nice hotel
We stayed at the Omni for our wedding night in September 2001. They knew we had just gotten married and provided us with a room on a private floor (you need a special key to access it through the elevator). They also had champagne, strawberries, and some dessert goodies waiting for us in our room. The service was excellent. We enjoyed our stay!
Discovered the Omni while walking through downtown Richmond. We were thrilled to find such a lovely, welcoming hotel! Had made reservations for the previous night at a local hotel that turned out to be a nightmare. Omni was clean, beautiful, and right in the middle of the best places to visit. Must say that the staff was fabulous! Extremely polite, and went out of their way to make sure we were cared for. Never worried about a thing... Helpful directions were offered whenever we needed them. One very polite valet made sure we had $5.00 discount tickets to dinner. Cannot say enough about the beautiful room on 17th floor. Exceptionally clean, fresh, lovely. Only problem: low water pressure, but we were more than willing to deal with that in order to stay there. Would go again anytime!
This is likely the nicest hotel I have ever stayed in. It isn't cheap, but is well worth the upscale rates. There are no negatives. Highly recommend!
