Quirk Hotel is a boutique hotel in west downtown Richmond, Virginia, the city's arts and design district. The hotel has its own art gallery rotating exhibits from local artists. The hotel is set in a former department store from 1916 in Italian Revival Style. Details such as the lobby’s segmental arches, groin vault ceiling and ornamental ironwork staircase have been preserved throughout the hotel. The lobby’s focal point is an art installation titled “Pile,” created by local artist Susie Ganch, comprised of white coffee lids collected from Richmond’s coffee shops.
The hotel’s guestrooms are designed with a color palette composed of warm-pink, gray, walnut brown, white and black. Historic highlights include original wood floors and repurposed 100-year-old Virginia wood beams used for bedframes. Room also include modern elements such as contemporary millwork, sculptural glossy white lacquered furniture and frosted glass shower enclosures in the guest bathrooms. Facilities includes a flat-screen TV with cable channels, safe, workdesk, iron, board, coffee/tea making facilities and a minibar with locally sourced items. Bathrooms come with robes, complimentary toiletries and a hair dryer.
The hotel's restaurant "Maple&Pine" uses locally sourced ingredients, as does the European-style coffee bar serving blends from local coffee roaster Blanchard's Coffee Roasting Company. The area surrounding the Quirk is home to numerous restaurants, cafés and small independent boutiques.
Guests can use the on-site fitness centre or relax in the garden.
