SHORT PUMP, VA--(Marketwired - Sep 10, 2015) - A major change has been completed at the former Richmond Marriott West. The new-look Short Pump hotel has embraced the latest in Marriott's Brand Standards, joining premier Marriott properties nationwide.

New renovations are extensive. The newly added MClub Lounge on the hotel's first floor is an exclusive benefit for Gold and Platinum members. It is a versatile space, ideal for wrapping up some work and casual socializing. Walking into the sprawling Great Room, guests can enjoy craft cocktails and light fare at the trendy, on-site Short Pump restaurant.

While those aspects of the hotel have been greatly improved, the guest rooms are completely new at this Marriott hotel near Richmond's booming Short Pump area. Rooms boast newly designed work space and 55-inch Smart TVs. The former double-double rooms have been upgraded to double-Queen rooms. The hotel has added a brand new Presidential Suite, and most impressively, 30 cutting-edge Stay Well Rooms have been added to the hotel. Stay Well Rooms offer an upgraded experience for discerning travelers and are dedicated to creating the healthiest, most nourishing environment possible for guests, a mission Marriott shares.

Business travelers staying with the Richmond Marriott will find the hotel's convenient proximity to local office parks is essential to a successful business trip, while downtown Richmond and the Convention Center area are fifteen minutes from the hotel, and the airport is just 20 short miles away. What's more, the hotel's meeting space has been upgraded with extra space and dynamic business amenities like electronic reader boards and Marriott's new Red Coat Direct app, where meetings and events are Imagined, thanks to Marriott's new Meetings Imagined initiative. The Richmond Marriott's commitment to improvement is unique among Richmond Convention Center hotels and should inspire every traveler, business and leisure alike.

With such drastic changes, this Richmond Marriott will also be updating their name from the Richmond Marriott West to the Richmond Marriott Short Pump. The name change will be effective as of September 2015 when the final renovations will be complete.
