Most downtown Richmond hotels are either over the top (Jefferson,) too commercial (Marriott) or just mediocre (smaller Marriotts.) The Berkeley does everything pretty well. Rooms are a bit small but adequate. The food is quite good but don't expect anything fancy. The bar is small but well-stocked. The staff gets the job done but that's about it. The location is...

If I come back to Richmond I will most definitely stay at the Berkeley. I love this hotel. Every staff member from every department was exceptional...pleasant and kind. The location is wonderful and within walking distance of so many great experiences.

Service from every staff person we encountered was below average. The room was far below what we would expect for the price. The TV did not work. Our biggest complaint was the lack of service from the valet to check-in to the restaurant. I honestly have no idea how they received four diamonds.

Definitely a nice hotel with plenty of old city charm. Rooms were clean, although a little on the small side. Would stay here again! Parking was a little expensive ($26 a night), so we grabbed parking on the street for free. Other parking garages down the street are cheaper ($5 !!!)

Ms Star and Emily were the most professional and helpful through our wedding weekend. Our wedding guests as well as the bride and groom had the most wonderful experience and we will be recommending the Berkeley as the only place to stay in RVA.

Spent our 39th anniversary going to Richmond and staying the night at the Berkeley Hotel. The staff was courteous and helpful, the room was spacious and very clean. We had drinks before dinner at the lounge and Kait and Will did an excellent job. Kait was able to mix up a drink for my wife that mimicked what she had...

Our room was fantastic with a huge private balcony overlooking the cobblestones. The king bed was luxurious and I slept like a log. The service was impeccable. Go right across the street to the Tobacco Company for dinner!

My sister and I have been celebrating our birthdays together with an annual trip for several years now. We were raised in the Richmond area where as young girls would go shopping with our grandmother and mother at Miller and Rhodes and go to the tea room. It had been over 40 years since we had been to Richmond and...

There is no place to sit an wait or chat in the lobby. The four chairs are inadequate for group waiting. We had a large wedding party and enjoyed our visit otherwise. The beds are very comfortable, but the rooms are dark.
