My son and I went to Richmond for a college tour and stayed here. It is an old hotel that has been restored very nicely. The rooms were very good and the location was great. We were able to get on street parking most every day which was very convenient. It is a short walk to the Capitol and Museums.... More

I spent a long weekend in Richmond with friends and stayed at the Berkeley. I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. It's staff was friendly (thanks, Darlene, for being so nice) and the room was lovely. The decor was nice, and the bed was great. The only downside was the street noise at night. There are a few bars and... More

We stayed here in the last few days. Lovely hotel, lovely staff in a well presented clean hotel. My only gripe was the brick wall we had for a view. Would go back but would ask for a room with a view better than a wall.

Have been at the Omni before and I prefer the Berkeley. We had a corner room with a large patio overlooking the city. I asked for this room based on reveiws and although I purchased the room on Hotiwre, the front desk upgraded us a no charge. Nice, large, well appointed room. Huge bathroonm. All done in natural stone (a... More

I did not enjoy my stay in this hotel. The Jefferson and the Omni were booked - so I decided to give the Berkeley a try. It's one positive is location - but the Omni has the same advantage. At check in the front desk was nice enough- I let them know I had some concerns based on some of... More

Went down recently for a long weekend. I had never been to Richmond and we were advised that the Berkeley was top notch. And it was gorgeous! Surrounded by lots of interesting restaurants, close to the canals - it was a beautiful property. However, the service was not top notch. Not rude, just apathetic. I wasn't impressed. I would still... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel overnight on a Saturday for a quick getaway from the Washington, DC area. We were very pleased with our room as the hotel is aesthetically wonderful and charming and the location is great. However, by the time that we arrive back home Sunday afternoon and happened to check our bank account there... More

I truly apologize for this happening to you and your husband. Our Initial conversation dealt mainly with how to prevent this in the future so I am terribly sorry that we did not get back to your specific incident. An outside caller, not an affiliate of the hotel, calls to ask for guests' personal information; this is a scam and... More

This is a lovely hotel located in a fun area of downtown Richmond, just on the edge of the financial district (very convenient to James Center) and the Shockhoe Slip area (quaint area with good restaurants.) The décor is elegant, the rooms updated and pristine, and the staff eager to accommodate their guests. But here's the downside of the location... More

Six outstanding nights in a hotel we would return to again. Efficient, helpful service performed with a kindness and sincere caring demeanor. Interactions with hotel staff rewarded us with knowing we were welcome guests. Loved the age and character of the building with classic furniture and style while maintaining high standards of excellence for up to date bedding. Never worry... More

If your looking for a classy hotel to stay in, in Richmond, than I would recommend this hotel. The only issue is the balcony is right beside each other suite so you can't get too much privacy. Thats the only suggestion I would offer for the hotel, a wall divider. Room service was superb and up the par.
