Nice small hotel. Location is great for easy walk to restaurants and historic sites. Room was comfortable but we were on the 2nd fl facing the street and right next to the ice/soda machine room so the noise was a problem. We were told moving was not an option due to full booking. We were there two nights so that...

The website made this hotel look quite nice. We reserved a junior suite and while the room was large it was not as pictured. We expected much more from The Berkeley. The hotel was nowhere near capacity yet we seemed to have the loudest room in the building. We were awake until 3AM due to the noise on the street...

I booked The Berkeley Hotel because of the location. It's so close to walk to wonderful restaurants and very stately in feel. The materials used are authentic and rich. I'm having a hard time since the internet has been down for a few hours now. Attempting to work while on business this is less than ideal, with an extremely kind...

I stayed at the Berkeley on business. It is in a great location, in close proximity to all of my meetings, and has a very friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are large and comfortable. The only (very minor) drawback was the slow service at breakfast.

I looked online for a hotel closest to the Museum of the Confederacy. That's how we became acquainted with The Berkeley Hotel. What a pleasant surprise. We could walk to the locks in downtown; we could walk to the Museum of the Confederacy and Jefferson Davis's home; we could tour the Capital. Lovely hotel in ideal setting for downtown visits.

A surprise get away for my wife and trip planning is not my strong suit. The staff was so helpful and I could not have chosen a better hotel. The place is beautiful and very clean and extremely comfortable. A lot to do within walking distance. We had a great time and look forward to being a return customer.

Staff was attentive, and very welcoming when I arrived. The room was eloquently, inviting, which allowed for a very relaxing stay. I will definitely return, if the opportunity presents itself again in the near future.

Everyone we encountered was lovely and helpful, from the bellboy to the front desk staff. Alfreda was particularly delightful, enjoying our jokes and having a nice chat. The room was clean and quiet and the bathroom was huge. We will be back.

From the time I parked in front of the building, all went well. The valet took care of my luggage and the car, the check-in was speedy, the room beautiful, large and well-appointed and the bathroom was lovely. I highly recommend it.
