My wife and I stay at The Berkeley fairly often and always say how much we enjoy it. Usually have breakfast there and walk around the Shockoe Slip area during our stay. We find the people that work there particularly pleasant and helpful.

This boutique hotel is comfortable and has lovely ambience to it but it was the friendly helpful staff who made our stay so wonderful. Many of Richmond's tourist attractions are within walking distance. We didn't use the car during our stay. You are spoilt for choice with the many restaurants close to the hotel

We were visiting Richmond as part of a week-long Civil War battlefields tour and stayed two nights in this wonderful hotel. From the moment we arrived late on a Thursday afternoon we were treated like valued guests. Nothing was a trouble for their super-friendly and super-efficient staff, led by the night manager, Alfreda, who is very proud of her hotel... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at The Berkeley. It is an older, small hotel but it is a wonderful mixture of quaint elegance with a wonderful staff! The people at the front desk (especially Alfreda) were delightful, efficient and very helpful. The hotel room was a very nice size, the bed very comfy, and the room very clean. The... More

We stayed at the Berkeley for four days. We picked the property because it offered a deal that included free valet parking and breakfast each morning. The location is in downtown Richmond which meant that on two days of our stay we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go and did not need the car. We had a... More

If you stay in chain hotels, you'll appreciate elegance, quiet, personal attention, and charm in the Berkeley, I love staying here because it represents the best in what hotels should offer. On top of that, you have an excellent restaurant for all meals.

To start we booked for a Wedding in town that recommended this hotel downtown. We checked on the reservation the night before and got told they were sold out and we didn't have reservation. We rebooked with the OMNI (and wish we had stayed with Them). The next night The Berkeley calls us and asks when we are coming in.... More

The Berkeley Hotel was the perfect venue for our family pre and post wedding events! When my daughter decided to get married in Richmond, we immediately started searching for hotel rooms for our guests. We felt welcome from the moment we walked in the door at The Berkeley. Emily gave us a tour of the hotel and we adored the... More

The Berkeley Hitel is charming to look at, the staff is welcoming and friendly and our room was clean and comfortable. We stayed mid-week, and were upgraded to a junior suite. We were able to walk to historic sites and good restaurants from our hotel.

Thoroughly enjoyed the quick stay. Comfort and accommodations were worth the last minute stop over. The staff was extremely pleasant and kind as well as very helpful. Beds were super comfortable. If we are in Richmond again we will be sure to stop in.
