The Westin Richmond
Virginia Green is the Commonwealth of Virginia’s campaign to promote environmentally-friendly practices in all aspects of Virginia’s tourism industry. Virginia Green has established "core activities" specific to each sector of tourism, and these practices are considered the required minimum for participation in the program. However, Virginia Green encourages its participants to reduce their environmental impacts in all aspects of their operations, and this profile provides a full list of all their “green” activities. These are the activities that guests / customers can expect to find when they visit this facility.

We strive to create a restorative atmosphere by anticipating your needs and tending to them intuitively. Our 250 superbly comfortable guest rooms feature many wonderful amenities, which will replenish your body and elevate your senses.
