Quirk Hotel Richmond

The newest members of Curator Hotel & Resort Collection include:

  • Quirk Hotel Richmond (Richmond, Virginia): Built in 1916, the Quirk Hotel was once J.B. Mosby & Co. Dry Goods Store with an Italian Renaissance design, filled with natural light and historic charm. In 2005, owners Katie and Ted Ukrop converted a portion of the ground floor into the Quirk Gallery, an offbeat hub showcasing local and regional artists. And in 2015, they turned it into a boutique hotel where they could attract local artists and guests. The 73 guest rooms and suites are thoughtfully designed with local artwork, ensuring a one-of-a-kind experience for each guest. Quirk Richmond allows guests to discover local artists throughout the boutique space and enjoy thoughtfully crafted meals from local ingredients. The hotel is in the heart of one of Richmond’s most dynamic neighborhoods and offers easy access to various attractions and shopping destinations.
