Stayed one night at the Berkeley Hotel in Richmond, Va on Travelzoo vouchers. We had two rooms for 4 of us "Grandma traveling buddies". Vouchers included full breakfasts, tax, tips, and parking. We all live in VA, so loved the classic style of this old Va hotel. Rooms were comfortable and well appointed with a very large bathroom and one... More

The hallway and room had strong odor of cigarettes. Enough to trigger my wife's allergies. When I informed the front desk, their solution was to give us a portable fan and place a dehumidifier in the hallway. The front desk told us that while the hotel was a non-smoking hotel, they still allowed smoking on the terraces. But the smell... More

Stayed one Saturday night at the Berkley with two friends, fellow VCU Alumni. The room was nice (clean and nicely decorated in traditional colors and style). The staff were friendly at check-in. The bell hop who helped with our bags even offered to fill our ice bucket and then brought us an extra glass, etc. (the room was set up... More

The hotel was really classy looking and nice. The room was excellent and the staff was very nice bringing us a refrigerator for no charge since my friend had to pump. The beds are extremely comfortable!!! The staff during the day is nice but the overnight staff probably needs to be more friendly. I know it sucks... but its not... More

We had a lovely mini vacation from Williamsburg and chose to stay at this beautiful hotel. From the moment we arrived on Sunday afternoon, till the moment we left everything was a delight. To start, we arrived at about 1:30 on Sunday afternoon and our room was ready! Double plus for that! The bell captain got our bags out of... More

We came to Richmond in a combined Trip Business and Pleasure. The hotel could really use maintenance. When I made the reservation they said it included breakfast for our party of 4, but when we arrived they said it was only for 2 guests, which made no sense since we were staying at a Junior Suite with two double beds....

We were In Richmond to drop my daughter off for school and I was so happy that I picked the Berkeley for two nights. The room was large, comfortable and pretty with big windows which I loved.

The Berkeley Hotel is a small hotel in historic Shockoe Slip, it has a nice feel due to the overall look of the hotel and the fact that it is small. Staff were pleasant and helpful, the air conditioning in our room was perfect even on the hottest days. The bar had a club feel and the restaurant was classy.... More

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
