My wife and I stayed at the Berkeley for a weekend trip to Richmond. I've stayed several times in the Omni Hotel across the street and always wanted to try the Berkeley. I was very impressed with the Berkeley and will be staying in this wonderful hotel in the future. The most impressive thing about the hotel during our stay... More

We stayed overnight recently at the Berkeley Hotel. This was in celebration of my companion's birthday. I made the reservations online through their own site, and specified the occasion in advance. I booked the king terrace suite and asked for a quiet room, away from the noise of the Tobacco Company across the street. The only difficulty we experienced was... More

My husband and I stayed at The Berkeley recently when we traveled to Richmond to see Jersey Boys. The hotel is so convenient to great restaurants and the Landmark Theater. We found on-street parking in the afternoon and then used the garage a block away for overnight ($4). The room was huge, comfortable, and very nicely furnished. The bathroom is... More

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

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
