We stayed at the Berkeley Hotel three years ago and definitely wanted to stay there again. It is a small, boutique hotel with each room being different and is in the perfect location for touring around Richmond....you can walk to almost all the major historical sites and then walk to dinner. East Cary Street is a cobblestone street with numerous...

I really wanted to like this hotel because I got a great rate on one of the terrace suites. We love the Tobacco Company Restaurant so we were very excited to have found such a great rate on a hotel literally across the street. I was really looking forward to staying here but ultimately it was a huge disappointment. The...

The Berkeley Hotel is a favorite place to stay when visiting the Richmond area and has always provide great service. Unfortunately, this was not the case during this visit when we were awoken at 0800 by housekeeping knocking on doors to determine if they can begin cleaning and vacuuming the common areas outside of our room.

We've visited this hotel for several years and have always had a wonderful stay. If you are bothered by street noise, request a room in the back, but understand your view will be a brick wall. We just stayed on the 6th floor, but our window looked into another office building. It was ok for us because we just stayed...

The Berkeley offers you nothing less than a moment in time. This quaint little piece of history is like a home away from home. I was extremely delighted and I would, without a doubt, recommend them to any and everyone looking to experience peace and tranquility with the comfort of being at home. In one word, simply amazing.

Explore the many restaurants within a two block area. The hotel restaurant is good but so are many close by'. The Tabacco Warehouse is right across the street and is good. Also check out the Asian and Italian very close. Overall we liked the suite we had and felt it was reasonably priced and tasteful.

The staff at the Berkeley were so kind and helpful the entire time we were there. We loved the location, too. There were great places to visit right outside the door. The room was clean and spacious and we had a terrific experience.

My wife and I stayed at this lovely historic and beautiful boutique hotel on our way home from Charleston recently and really enjoyed it.

The Berkeley Hotel is a small hotel in the Shockoe Slip area of Richmond. It was very conveniently located, close to restaurants and shops in this area, the Capitol grounds and other historic downtown locations. The staff was very friendly and courteous. I was able to check in to my room though I arrived at the hotel at 11am! As...
