Check in was complete chaos - no bellman. Room smelled like cigarette smoke. The waiter at breakfast disappeared never to be seen again. Valet parking was $35.00. The waiter in the bar sat down with us to take our order.

This is the second time I have stayed at the Berkley, and it was just as good as the first time or better. This is a comfortable, competent hotel with lovely staff. I went to happy hour in the lounge this time, and the appetizers and drinks I had were excellent and a good deal. There are hotels closer to...

Great stay, excellent location. The overall stay was very good. The rooms were very comfortable. The bathrooms were a little on the dark side and could use brighter lighting. Highly recommend The Berkeley.

Fantastic location. Helpful and polite staff. One room great view, other hideous (trashy alley). Rooms comfortable and clean. Great shower and ample size of room. Fine for morning coffee drinkers but tea difficult to obtain.

The staff was exceptionally friendly, the room entirely comfortable, in a charming downtown setting. Breakfast was superb. Stroll down to the canal for a historical walk. This is an upscale hotel for a reasonable price.

Overall positive stay, though we were unfortunate to have a room across from the very noisy, Tobacco Company restaurant/bar. Low marks for the continental breakfast. High marks for the lovely, spacious room.

I have to say this was the best sleep I have ever had in a hotel regardless of the cost. It was a wonderful bed, the staff was great. The only complaint I would have is the bartender does not even give a full shot of scotch. Ha. Very meager.

Was in town for a family wedding. The Berkeley was great. The location gave us lots of places to gather and catch up with family members within walking distance. The staff from top to bottom was outstanding. The service could not have been better. I will look to the Berkeley on my next visit to Richmond.

Visited Richmond for a wedding. The Hotel is in the heart of downtown. Good restaurants in walking distance from hotel. I also dined at the hotel restaurant and the food there was exceptional. The State Capital and the Governor 's Mansion in walking distance from the hotel.
