We have found our spot in Richmond. This place is perfect and with only 55 rooms you don't have to worry about any racket. Everyone here is classy. They have the best breakfast in town. Reserve a king terrace suite so you can enjoy coffee on your deck in the morning. Star at the front desk is as sweet as... More

Spent one night in this lovely hotel and enjoyed every aspect. Clean, comfortable, and very well appointed rooms. Staff are friendly and helpful. No attitudes here! We were parched after a long walk and requested cold water from the front desk. They brought us 2 bottles of artesian water on ice and said "on the house!" WOW! The ambiance is... More

We stayed two nights in the Berkeley Hotel in Richmond, Virginia recently. We had intended to stay only one night, but it was so lovely we stayed another! The hotel is in a great location and literally up the street from the trolley bus tour of the city (a must to do). We received a warm welcome and Tad the... More

While planning a two-night stay in Richmond, my wife booked us a room in this downtown hotel. I had never heard of it and was skeptical of her choice. I was wrong! It's right in the middle of quaint, old downtown Richmond, just across the street from the famous Tobacco Company restaurant. The room was clean with a very comfortable... More

We have to leave Richmond today, and am sad to leave our lovely hotel! Been here 4 nights. What a perfect place to stay if you're new to Richmond and want to explore the city! You can eat at fine restaurants each day without driving. You get a pass to work out at the YMCA which is located almost directly... More

We purchased a Travel Zoo coupon for a one-night stay at this hotel. It included valet parking and breakfast. What a lovely deal. The hotel is beautiful. The architecture and fixtures and all are beautiful. The front desk staff is very pleasant and helpful. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived early. The staff took our bags and suggested we... More

Based on previous reviews, I was a bit worried, but as soon as I checked in and saw our room, I was incredibly pleased. The room itself was lovely - very clean, spacious and comfortable, and the front desk staff was very helpful and accommodating. The location of the hotel was quite ideal since it was close to so many... More

This could have been a great hotel to recommend. It is small, clean, centrally located, friendly staff, valet parking. Everything that you would want. We have actually stayed there a few times. So why rate it a 1? Here is my story. I booked 4 rooms for my son's graduation: my room, my mothers, my sisters and my father-in-laws. When... More

Thank you for taking the time to make management aware of this issue. I am sorry we were unable to apply correct billing during your stay. It is unfortunate that this mistake put a damper on your stay. I will be sure to discuss with the staff so that this issue does not occur again in the future. More

We stayed here for a special occasion. It was very beautiful! We stayed in the governor's room and we were very pleased with the quality of the room. Room service was sometimes a bit slow. We had asked for towels and my husband had to go on a search for them. Breakfast was delightful!!

I spent a Friday night at the hotel. Upon arriving, the valet section was full so I had to drive around many blocks for 10 mts. My room was on the 2nd floor facing the street and it was a bit noisy. For some reason, the hit water was not working in the shower in the evening and morning (sink... More
