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. Our room was spacious and so comfortable, the porters will meet you curbside and usher all your stuff up to your room, they will valet park your car or suggest 2 or 3 park yourself options,...

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...

Thank you for your wonderful review! We like to think that our people make all the difference and your review shows us just that. Come see us again and explore some more of our services. Chef Will is cooking up a new specialty menu for April that already has my mouth watering.

Our room was nice and the location is a great base for touring Richmond. We stayed here last year and my son asked the bartender for a fresh made lemonade and she made one for him which he loved. We came back again this year and he asks the bartender for one again she says to us " I made...

You stumbled upon one of the reasons that makes us successful, our people! Kait is an integral part of our Berkeley Family and this is the reason why. Come back and see us again soon; she is currently working on Spring and Summer cocktails using fresh fruits and herbs.

The 2 of us stayed here last minute on a Sunday night. A perfect hotel for us, i.e. center of town location, small (50 rooms I think), and cozy. Front desk attendants including the Bell Captain were welcoming and pleasant, asking if we needed help with luggage, directions, maps, etc. Room was pleasantly appointed and had a nice street view....

Great location within walking distance of historical attractions and restaurants. Very clean hotel and courteous staff. Not much shopping in the district that I could see, but fabulous food. The only change I would make with the hotel room would be to update furnishings a little and to have actual coffee cups in the room vice paper cups. All in...
