We had a very pleasant stay at the Berkeley Hotel. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Our room was quite large. The wifi was included in the price of the room (a pet peeve). The bed was quite comfortable. I felt this hotel was a very good value. If you are there on a Sunday, don't miss the Sunday... More

This is overall a great hotel. There was no free breakfast as advertised but don't let that deter you! Excellent service and comfortable beds! Will definitely be staying there again on my next trip to Richmond!!

When we attempted to check into the hotel on Friday night, December 27 there was a problem with our reservation (we used award points to make the reservation with our cc company and, apparently, the reservation never finalized). The front desk associate, Adrian McLaughlin, was accommodating beyond necessity and is highly commended for his outstanding sensitivity to our situation and... More

Had New Years dinner at the Berkley. The food was very good. The service was not what I expected from a restaurant of this caliber. Our waiter was not very professional. His demeanor was very casual. There was nothing formal about his demeanor or presentation.

The Berkeley hotel is located in the historic Shockoe Slip district of Richmond with an original cobblestone street along its front. It is well maintained, clean, moderately priced, and has very spacious and comfortable accommodations. I did not dine in the hotel restaurant so that I might sample one of the many fine restaurants in the same city block. The... More

My wife and I stayed here and did the bed and breakfast deal. Man what a great hotel. The staff is great. They definitely went above and beyond for us. The room was beautiful and big. Bed was comfortable. The dinning room was nice and our breakfast was very good. There are plenty of restaurants around the area and a... More

Stayed at the Berkely as part of company Christmas party. Hotel was closest to the restaurant chosen for the event, and the company hospitality "suite" was in the hotel. The hotel is small, but the staff is super-freindly. We'd asked for an upper-level room not facing the Tobacco company, and this request was accomodated (staff frequently asking if room was... More

Very large room for the price. Quiet, nicely furnished-well above the adverage. Arrived on a Monday, planned to eat at the hotel but restaurant closed on Monday. Excellent places to eat right accross the street so no problem. They do not serve breakfast until 7am, this includes room service. We had an early checkout (7:30) so had to pass on... More

Great find! It began to snow and the roads were getting icy. We jumped off I-95 and were so lucky to find the Berkley. Wonderful staff, warm welcome, valet parking, very nice king room, exceptionally clean, great dinner recommendations, delicious breakfast. Will definitely stay here again.

We always stay at the Berkeley when in Richmond. The rooms are so beautiful and quiet, the service excellent. It's affordable luxury in the Shockoe Slip where there are plenty of choices for dinner and breakfast no matter what time you arrive or depart. There's valet parking available but we park in the city garage just down from the hotel... More
