No doubt the Berkley is well located for anyone visiting Richmond. The staff is very friendly and will accommodate your needs. The room was clean and comfortable but not exceptional - air conditioning could be better. Also, note the restaurant is NOT open but there are great places to eat within a very very short walk. Don' bother using valet parking. Self-parking is available and much more economical. Manage expectations, our room was not luxurious but it is was clean and comfortable and again the staff was very friendly. The location can't be beaten.

A fantastic experience from the moment we entered! The staff was super friendly and so very helpful. We had taken the train into the city so did not have access to a car. The staff offered great suggestions as to nearby places to eat and how to navigate to locations not within walking distance. The location was within walking distance to the train station as an added bonus. The hotel was very concerned with covid and cleanliness. Would definitely stay at this place if I was ever in Richmond again.

Our stay at The Berkeley Hotel couldn’t have been better. The staff is exceptionally warm, welcoming and helpful. There was a problem with our bathroom and we were immediately moved to a room next door. Our terrace room was so beautiful and the location in Shockoe Bottom is perfect. We will return again.

A comfortable, quiet hotel close to amenities. Deluxe room was big and comfortable. Decor is a little dated. Good boutique hotel experience. Restaurants within walking distance. Parking is currently in a nearby garage - rates were reasonable - $15 overnight if you enter after 3pm and leave by 11am
