“Lovely!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2013

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!

Room Tip: The terrace room was incredible!

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 had....

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 is a great place to stay if you are in downtown Richmond.

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 strolled the cobblestone streets to have drinks and then dinner at La Grotta, one block down. We returned to a beautiful nighttime view of Richmond from the terrace at our room. We were in the King Terrace Suite. Everything from the front doorway, to the dining room, to the center hall to the rooms was elegantly appointed. The service was perfect from beginning to end. Breakfast the next morning was superb. You must try The Berkeley!!

Room Tip: King Terrace Suite

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 and the only negative for our dog at the hotel was the city traffic and the lack of nearby grass for walking. Our price through booking.com was lower than we had found through the hotel directly or any of the other websites we had checked. The staff was very pleasant and the hotel was in a convenient location. It was old enough to have some character but was clean and had enough modern amenities for us- and we especially appreciated the free wi-fi. We had a large room with a king bed. The bedding was very luxurious although the bed was a little softer than we prefer. We would definitely stay here again for the same price when visiting Richmond!

We stayed here last weekend for the Virginia Wine Expo. The hotel is in the Shockoe Bottom area. Easy walking distance to many great restaurants and bars and about 12 blocks from the Convention Center. Very modern and nice bathrooms, good size rooms and comfy beds.
