No parking, especially on weekends. Its the club district

The rooms are very elegant and the front staff was charming. The restaurant left a bit to be desired, slow service and sub par breakfast. The cleaning staff wasn't very friendly, rather huffy.

The Berkeley is a classic hotel with tons of character - it's iconic in Richmond. It doesn't have all of the flashy amenities, like a rooftop deck, like some newer hotels, but it's got charm in spades. The staff is also amazing.

Convenient to Shockoe Slip with lots of restaurants, Canal Walk, breweries. I called ahead to ask for a room with a view and was given a room on front side with a view of Cary Street. Excellent service.

Rooms were nothing special... just over sized, large room(s).

Close to my seminar, was not impressed w/ check/in staff. The bell hop & maintence were response.

The staff were professional and kind. My room was clean and nicely furnished. The location is extremely convenient for business to the Capitol or other State offices. Lots of excellent restaurants close by. And, the in house restaurant was excellent as well.

Hotel location is on a popular chic cobblestone street with a choice of restaurants and a short two block walk to the capital as well as easy access to the parkways. Staff is welcoming. Restaurant is top notch. I particularly love The Decour. Only suggestion would be a refrigerator in the room.

Enjoyed our time there. We were attending a meeting held in the Omni and couldn't get a reservation there. Glad they were full!

Pleasant experience. Convenient. Nothing more to say.

Very nice hotel. Desk staff friendly and courteous. Would stay there again.

The Berkeley Hotel is a lovely hotel located in Shockoe Bottom. The room was spacious and clean. Bathroom nicely updated as well. Valet parking a wonderful convenience; hard to find parking in Shockoe Bottom. Would definitely recommend to friends and family.

Alfreda was so welcoming. She is an outstanding ambassador for The Berkeley. Also the breakfast staff was very accommodating. Always look forward to our stay here.

Great stay. Great experience! Staff very welcoming and helpful. Bar staff very engaging. Perfect location to explore downtown area.

Spotty wifi so don't go here if you need it; Many rooms are near road which is very noisy and has garbage pickup on Thursday around 4:30am. Hotel staff were friendly but no one skilled - e.g. sent valet up to try to fix Wifi, and 'night manager' made promises they couldn't deliver (told me they would call me back about moving rooms, never did). I normally never complain and had stayed here before, but this will definitely be my last time.
