Every hotel in the Stash chain that I have stayed at is totally different. From boutique chic, to classic charm - I always feel like I am staying at an independent hotel. Not part of a cookie cutter chain. I have a room on the top floor with a terrace which is great. FRESH AIR - and I recommend spending...

I had a wonderful time in Richmond, and this hotel was very nice. Prompt valet parking service, friendly and efficient staff, comfortable and clean room. I had breakfast in the dining room, and it was very good. My only complaint is that the water wasn't hot enough for my tea, but this is a common complaint when ordering tea in...

Although a bit dated, the rooms are very spacious, clean and well kept (much bigger than we anticipated). The bed we had was incredibly comfortable! The staff was extremely courteous, friendly and helpful. They provided a fridge in our room to store my husband's insulin and were wonderful about providing directions to MCV Hospital for the next day. We only...

We enjoyed staying at The Berkeley. However, the décor could be updated. When we checked into our room, which had a balcony, there were other people hanging out right outside our door. The shared balconies offer little to no privacy. Management quickly moved us to a room with a private balcony. Well, as private as it gets at this hotel....

Loved the hotel!!! Did not like the fact that the rooms dont come with a fridge! Had no place to keep our beverages or left overs from going out to eat...We had a lock box but no fridge!!! We were very disappointed on that one feature, or rather lack of feature.

Everything went great from the time I checked in until I checked out. The lady that checked me in was friendly and joked around with me. The room was clean and just very cool with a large wooden wardrobe but a very updated bathroom. The lunch in the restaurant was spectacular...I had the Chesapeake chicken. The valet service was very...

We have visited the Berkeley on numerous occasions, three times having our holiday party there. The hotel is located in an area called Shockoe Slip, the historical "restaurant district" in downtown Richmond. Situated on a cobblestone street directly across from the fabled Tobacco Company restaurant, this little gem is perfectly located for travelers who want to share a little of...

This is a first rate hotel in the old style. It is in the middle of downtown near excellent restaurants and has a good restaurant within the hotel. The service is excellent and the setting is reminiscent of a pub.

The staff were especially helpful and accommodating for this business traveler. For example, we got a late checkout at 1pm. without additional charge. The location near numerous restaurants is a plus, and the rooms were very comfortable. I try not to be picky, but a few minor downsides -- no exercise room onsite, you can use a local gym once...
