The hotel we decent. Lady at the front desk was exceptionally hospitable. I was bummed about room service ending @ 10pm, but other than that, the Berkeley was a clean and basic hotel. We loved the located. The hotel is conveniently located on Cary and 12th Street, in the heart of downtown. Valet was reasonably priced @ $25/night.

Right in the middle of historic Richmond, this hotel exudes with old world charm and service. The staff are super helpful and the hotel itself is very charming. I highly recommend this hotel whether you are on vacation or on business.

We checked in to no valet. When we were given a room we went it was occupied. Wow that is a shocker. You would think that this establishment could get that right. We go back down stairs and now we are completely pissed. We have stayed across the street and have never been treated like this. We get a new...

Good location right downtown, the hotel is a bit outdated though. We spent a little extra on a room with a balcony only to find out the balcony was shared with the room next door, with no divider. Which was a little odd. They were helpful though with keeping some food in the fridge in the main kitchen overnight for...

Cozy old style hotel in Historic Richmond. Reminds me of hotels in Europe. Convenient location to historic sites and restaurants. And their own restaurant is good. Reasonable rates. I was alone visiting family and I felt safe and comfortable.

Other than the fact they assured me there were plenty of cabs to catch across the street which there were not and we had to walk a mile plus mostly uphill. We enjoyed our stay. And if we go back to Richmond I would stay here.

The Berkely is in downtown Richmond. This means like many inner city hotels it doesn't have its own parking garage but offers valet parking. In this situation, a well staffed valet station is very important. We arrived at the hotel around 5pm and couldn't find any available place in line for the valet. This was the same when we also...

Although The Berkeley Hotel only opened in 1988, it looks and feels like one of the grand old dames of hotels of yore--although with clean, up-to-date furnishings and service. Our room was quite large excluding the bathroom which was also very generous. Service was friendly without being obsequious. It's clearly used for big functions but we never felt the crowds....
