I’d been to the Richmond Quirk for lunch earlier than and completed at Staycation on the Charlottesville location, however I’d by no means stayed at this property. It’s severely one of many cutest lodge lobbies there may be! 

Perks with Capital One Enterprise X

I booked our stick with my Enterprise X card, which is my favourite journey card. I had a $300 journey credit score with this card and a few factors to cancel out the $50 stability, so our keep was no value to us. PLUS, because it’s a Life-style Assortment lodge with Captial One, we had been upgraded to a set and given $90 of on-site credit to place in direction of drinks and breakfast! I didn’t understand we had these perks and we used them enthusiastically. Learn extra in regards to the Enterprise X advantages right here.
