Quirk Hotel is the brainchild of the owners of Quirk Gallery, which has been a leading part of Richmond’s art scene since 2005. The Quirk Hotel building is of Italian Renaissance design and was built in 1916 for the J.B. Mosby and Co. dry goods store. It features classic architectural features like limestone arches and groin ceilings and was noted for being the first fireproof department store in the city, according to the Department of Historic Resources. The connected three‐story brick building at 207 W. Broad St., is now home to Quirk Gallery and was first occupied by a bicycle and toy shop. Today, Quirk Hotel is one of the best hotels near the Port of Richmond and your home away from home when staying downtown. We welcome you to be a part of our story.
