Had a really nice stay once more. Starlet at front desk was excellent ! Bell person so nice and accodating. Would have liked a refrigerator included in junior suite. Wish dogs 60 pounds could come to hotel. We’ve been up three other times and had to stay at Residence Inn down street.

One Night at The Berkeley

Pros: We had a corner room with a great view of the cobble stoned street in front of the hotel. Area is very busy on a weekend night.
Cons: NA
Location: Virginia State Capitol tour was nice; beautiful grounds to walk around in. Mom's Siam restaurant a block away was excellent and recommended by staff.
Very comfortable night at the Berkeley Hotel in early July 2017. Beds and pillows are very comfy. We had a small sofa in our room with allowed us to watch TV comfortably. Staff at the front desk helpful and pleasant. Only valet parking was available for about $25 a night, but I was okay with that. Breakfast options were good.

I LOVE THE BERKLEY

Pros: It is elegantly decorated in colors/hues, and lighting that promotes peace and relaxation. The rooms are intimate and so comfy. On premises hotel.
Location: The Berkley is near other hotels, across the street and within the block are other restaurants, sandwich shops and eateries. 20 min. from shopping.
This was my second stay and I was not disappointed at all. I was greeted by Hank who helped me unload my car. (Valet Parking) It took less than 5 minutes at the front desk and I was off to my room. This place is so quiet... at any hour. If you're looking for a place to retreat, write, just get some kind time, or even time alone with a loved one. I recommend the Berkley

Pros: Convenient location to relatives. Quality appointments, very comfortable beds, clean, classy place to stay.
Cons: Parking can be a challenge.
Location: Location was walking distance to the State house, museums, small shops in quaint area of town.
This is a small but beautiful hotel in the heart of Richmond but in a renovated area known for its quaint shops and cobblestone streets. We stayed here while visiting relatives for Christmas and it was very convenient to the Church Hill neighborhood where they live. The rooms were beautifully appointed, beds extremely comfortable, and very plush towels. Supper clean rooms and staff were very friendly and helpful. The only downside was parking. They don't have a garage so you have to try to find a spot on the street (which we did just fine), pay for parking in a garage, or pay for valet parking at $20 per night. For the cost, we thought it was a great value for the quality. I'd stay there again for sure.

Very good

Hotel is very clean and the staff is very helpful. The valet had my car ready for me at 5:30am. It is located in the center of a great shopping and eating district.
