We spent 3 nights at the property in a 3rd floor room with a balcony on Cary St. Being right across from a large, popular bar/restaurant we were afraid it would be noisy at night, but we never heard a thing. The bed was comfortable, the room clean and spacious. Can't ask for much more from a hotel. The bar... More

My husband and i spent one night at the Berkeley and really enjoyed the location. There are a lot of restaurants within easy walking distance. Cary St is cobblestone outside the hotel and the hotel is surrounded by historic store fronts. The canal walk is close as well. Our room (509) was surprisingly large and included a full-sized sofa and... More

Lovely hotel....it is right in the heart of the city so I was concerned about parking. We lucked out and found a spot right across the street and were able to park for free. I only stayed one night . We got there after 9:00 pm so it only served as a place to lay our heads for the night... More

Superb location, beautiful accommodations, and excellent service. Complimentary lobby coffee in the morning is a nice touch, even though there's a stocked coffee maker in the room. Would definitely recommend and will look forward to staying again!

Recently stayed at the Berkeley with my daughter for one evening. We loved our room, cookies from room service - everything! It was our favorite hotel after a long trip - will definitely return. We wished that we could have stayed longer. We did not get to dine there but after seeing the dining room and menu, wished that we... More

The Berkeley is a small elegant hotel in downtown Richmond. The room was lovely and the staff very helpful and attentive. We were upgraded to a double with a terrace which although it was cold out still made the room seem brighter and bigger. The room itself had a large desk as well as a couch and coffee table. This...

I stay here on my frequent trips to Richmond for work. Staff is incredibly gracious and charming and helpful. Rooms are cozy and comfortable and clean. Location is divine...nothing like starting your day walking over cobblestone streets (after a workout at the amazing Y gym across the street). I won't stay anywhere else in town

We celebrated our 33rd Wedding Anniversary at The Berkeley Hotel in downtown Richmond, VA. Going back to the place where we spent our honeymoon was a romantic proposition. We were not disappointed! Richmond has gotten even better! The Berkeley was not there in 1980, but it was such a wonderful place to celebrate. Its location in Shockoe was perfect. We... More

My husband and I took a quick trip to Richmond to visit friends and family and also wanted a little get-away for the two of us at the same time. The Berkeley Hotel was a good choice for us and also allowed us to bring our small dog along for the trip. Our dog is not used to the city... More
