Reviewed yesterday NEW

The Berkeley was the perfect hotel for us--small, friendly, very clean and close to everything we wanted to see. The staff was friendly and helpful. The bed and breakfast/valet parking package was a great value and made our lives very easy during our stay.

A very positive stay and would we would return again. We were visiting the Capitol and the proximity and area around the Hotel was great. The many places to eat and visit around the Hotel gave us a very positive feeling about the area.

This little boutique hotel on Shockoe Slip never fails to please with its personal service, excellent food, and antique map decor. The original owner, now deceased, owned a museum quality collection of Virginia maps, and high-resolution scans, almost indistinguishable from the originals, hang opposite the elevators on each floor. Valet parking available, or you can self-park in a nearby garage.

I love staying in your hotel. This is my first choice when I visit Richmond. The service is wonderful, the rooms are impeccably clean, and the location is great! The valet service is one of the best. They are extremely courteous and friendly.

The staff is very kind and professional. Sarah, our housekeeper was especially helpful and courteous. Every space is super clean. Our terrace room was gorgeous and spacious. We ordered room service for dinner and it was good, but not great. For the price, it lacked a wow factor. I would certainly stay again when in Richmond.

This is a lovely hotel in an interesting area of Richmond. Several great restaurants in the area and within walking distance of the capital. We stayed while my son was visiting University of Richmond law school. Easy drive.

The staff are very friendly and keen to provide a good service. The location is great, with plenty of bars nearby, and it was only a short taxi ride to the part of town where we were going to see a band play. The elevators are very slow which seemed to be infuriating many of the guests - we heard...

Richmond seems like one of those cities that is trying to reverse a period of decline, and it really seems to be working. The Berkeley is right in the heart of a chic area. The room we had wasn't outstanding, but it was right on par with what you would expect from any upscale hotel. The bed was very comfortable,...

Valet was waiting out front when we pulled in to this wonderful boutique hotel. Room was ready even though we arrived early. We were pleasantly surprised to have a small sitting with a couch and chair for planning our day in the morning and watching TV in the afternoon. Nice area for breakfast in the morning. Although it wasn't on...
