In 2016, Condé Nast ranked the Quirk as "One of the Top 60 Best New Hotels in the World" and recognized the Quirk as having “One of the Top 10 Rooftop Bars in the U.S.” in 2017. Retro Hospitality provided pre-opening consulting services for ownership in 2014 and is currently serving as the hotel’s asset manager.

The Quirk Richmond building is of Italian Renaissance design, and it was once home to J.B Mosby department store, which dates back to 1916.
Architectural history is preserved throughout the building, such as the original ironwork staircase, 13 ft grand arches, and beautiful pine floors.
The hotel offers 73 art-centric rooms with 23 different room configurations. The beds are custom made from reclaimed wood and floor joists that were saved during demolition.
Virginia rising star, Chef David Dunlap, heads the rich and savory on-site restaurant, Maple & Pine. The property also includes the top-rated Q Rooftop Bar, and a chic, European-style Coffee Bar in the lobby.
The Quirk Art Gallery, found on the first floor, exhibits local and international artists as well as handmade jewelry and unique gifts to purchase.
