Richmond’s newest boutique hotel is an adaptive reuse of existing buildings on Broad street in the heart of downtown Richmond. The Italian Renaissance style building was built in 1916 for the J. B. Mosby and Co. Dry Goods Store, Richmond’s first fireproof department store. The hotel features an expansive lobby with original columns and groin ceilings.
The Quirk Hotel offers 75 guest rooms and suites. Dining options include the Coffee Bar, bars in the lobby and on the rooftop and their signature restaurant, Maple & Pine. Meeting spaces include the mezzanine, gallery courtyard, rooftop and two interior meeting rooms. The Quirk Gallery and Gallery Store feature art exhibitions of innovative work by both established and emerging artists.
Guest beds are made from salvaged floor joists of the original building. The maple and pine hardwood floors are original as well, refinished for a contemporary, sophisticated elegance. The Quirk Hotel was named one of the Top 60 Best New Hotels and Resorts in the World on the 2016 Condé Nast Traveler The Hot List.
The project won a 2016 Engineering News Record Mid-Atlantic Region "Best Project" award in the Residential/Hospitality category. Projects were evaluated on the ability of the project team to overcome challenges, contribution to the industry and community, safety and construction and design quality.
