Reviewed 4 August 2014

the room was large and the bed comfortable. The climate control was way off, however. Was up several times during the night to adjust the thermostat but couldn't get the room to cool off. And while they have a telephone (?) in the bathroom, there's no fan.
I left my phone charger in the room and called to ask that it be mailed to me. That would improve the service rating, for sure.

We have found our spot in Richmond. This place is perfect and with only 55 rooms you don't have to worry about any racket. Everyone here is classy. They have the best breakfast in town. Reserve a king terrace suite so you can enjoy coffee on your deck in the morning. Star at the front desk is as sweet as she can be and even came into the restaurant one morning just to day hello to me. Josh, William and Chris in the restaurant were all great guys. Thank you for having us we will be back soon!

Spent one night in this lovely hotel and enjoyed every aspect. Clean, comfortable, and very well appointed rooms. Staff are friendly and helpful. No attitudes here! We were parched after a long walk and requested cold water from the front desk. They brought us 2 bottles of artesian water on ice and said "on the house!" WOW! The ambiance is peaceful and relaxing. Perfect location as well with easy access to some wonderful restaurants and the canal walk. Breakfast at the hotel restaurant was delicious and the waiters were gracious and efficient. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Will recommend to family and friends.

We stayed two nights in the Berkeley Hotel in Richmond, Virginia recently. We had intended to stay only one night, but it was so lovely we stayed another! The hotel is in a great location and literally up the street from the trolley bus tour of the city (a must to do). We received a warm welcome and Tad the doorman couldn't have been more helpful, bringing our bags up to the room and parking our car for us. The room we stayed in was big and very luxurious with tasteful furniture and furnishings. The hotel in general was spotlessly clean and has a comfortable, relaxing feel to it. I would definitely stay there again. There is a great restaurant, The Tobacco Company, an old tobacco warehouse literally across the road. Food superb.

Room Tip: Our room had a side view onto the street which was fine, but I believe there are rooms at the front...

While planning a two-night stay in Richmond, my wife booked us a room in this downtown hotel. I had never heard of it and was skeptical of her choice. I was wrong! It's right in the middle of quaint, old downtown Richmond, just across the street from the famous Tobacco Company restaurant. The room was clean with a very comfortable bed, and the hotel's restaurant is excellent. Breakfast was the only meal we ate there; it was outstanding! One slight inconvenience was that parking was by valet only, taking15-20 minutes to retrieve your vehicle.

We have to leave Richmond today, and am sad to leave our lovely hotel! Been here 4 nights. What a perfect place to stay if you're new to Richmond and want to explore the city! You can eat at fine restaurants each day without driving. You get a pass to work out at the YMCA which is located almost directly across the street (this was a relief, as there is no workout facility at the hotel, I was concerned, but no need to be!) The breakfast at the hotel restaurant was tasty (ate there 2 times). Get a room with a terrace overlooking Cary St. Great to be able to step outside your room without having to leave it! I now know where I'll stay should I ever return to Richmond again. Well done, Berkeley!

We purchased a Travel Zoo coupon for a one-night stay at this hotel. It included valet parking and breakfast. What a lovely deal.

The hotel is beautiful. The architecture and fixtures and all are beautiful.

The front desk staff is very pleasant and helpful. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived early. The staff took our bags and suggested we walk around until it was closer to 4pm (check-in time). When we got back, our room was ready and the staff had taken our bags up to the room already. How nice.

The room had wonderful linens, towels and toiletries. All top notch.

And, breakfast was delicious. And, our waiter, Christopher, was a joy!

What a lovely hotel.....we really enjoyed it from top to bottom!
