This was our first trip to The Berkeley in several years. It is a small hotel with a friendly, helpful staff. The location is stellar - very close to great restaurants and bars. Our room was on the small side and they were resistant to giving us a larger room (probably because of our low rate) and the view was... More

A beautiful, small, lovely hotel. So much nicer than a standard chain hotel for the same or less money. Rooms feel very well- kept and clean with some amount of character. The room was plenty large enough for 2 adults and 2 kids. It turns out that valet parking your car is worth it since it costs $21/night, and the... More

Small hotel in the art and food heart of Richmond. Perfect place to stay if you are going to the theatre. Staff very pleasant. Restaurant seemed empty or closed during my brief stay. Not a very big lobby area--this is really a small hotel

Great place to stay in Richmond. Definitely get the 6th floor balcony room as it was amazing just to sit out under the stars and have a glass or two of wine. Beds are very comfy, with elegantly romantic touches throughout the room. Stay here with confidence, and park at the local lot for $4-6 a day.

I've always wanted to stay at the Berkeley Hotel and so glad we finally did. The Berkeley is so much more intimate than a large hotel. The beds are very comfy, and it's so nice to have a beautiful luxurious bathroom. For the first time I actually liked the coffee in a hotel room. The breakfast, especially the Eggs Benedict,... More

What a wonderful review! Richmond has so much to offer, it is great to see you enjoyed not only our property, but the Slip and the Altria Theatre. We appreciate the comment about our coffee as we just recently upgraded to the brand you tasted. Please think of us again the next time you are in the area. More

I can see why the Berkeley Hotel has the AAA Four Diamond rating! It is charming, delightful and elegant. The staff was very accommodating and professional. The rooms are great! Beds were exceptionally comfortable! One of the most comfortable hotels I've stayed in!

Stayed here for work for 4 nights and was very happy that this hotel was recommended. I was upgraded to a very large room. Large enough for me to workout in! Room service was great and the staff was super helpful with everything! Rooms were clean and a very cozy bed! If you are staying downtown Richmond VA I would... More

What an adorable hotel! It feels like a little home away from home. I'm staying here for business and feel so comfy, like I'm staying at a nice friend's house. Everyone on staff is warm and easy going. The value for the money is fantastic.

Stayed for a weekend. Room (which was an upgrade) was huge. Bed had a pillow top on the mattress which made it super-cozy and warm (it was a cold weekend). Housekeeping was great. Excellent downtown location for exploring. Great breakfast in restaurant. Ordered room service dessert one night (amazing chocolate dipped strawberries and fresh-baked cookies and milk, by the way).... More

You have touched on some of my favorite aspects of the property; the bed and the sweets! We have a pillow top mattress with the comfy duvet that folds you into your bed. Our Chef takes pride in house-made items; I urge you to try our new dinner menu on your next visit. More
