the Berkeley hotel was a nice stay in Richmond. Handsomely furnished. Room was spacious and very clean. The decor of the hotel makes you want to kick back and relax. Enjoyed a couple of good full breakfasts in the restaurant also. The only negative was some noise from the live music across the street, (it was friday night) you may want to get a room that is away from the front of the hotel (12th street) as there may be some partying on the weekend. The Tobacco Co. restaurant is fabulous and right across the street!

We had a wonderful stay. We were upgraded to an amazing 2-room suite. Very spacious, clean, & comfortable. Nice breakfast with homemade pastries. Tea wasn't hot enough; they need to boil the water. Friendly staff. Historic site. Just beautiful! Glad we stayed here!

Great stay I will be back !
Just a few minor things - no hangers on closet. No trash can in bathroom, no room service menu in room... Makes it seem housekeeping isn't very thorough.
When I went to get ice there was a rather unsightly supply closet open in the back with supplies and housekeeping cart all pretty dirty looking ( used dishes and glasses). Is there a way to close that door ?
When I tried to have lunch on the day of the blizzard they told me they stopped serving lunch - it was only 215 and you would think there might be a little flexibility as people were seeking shelter from storm
Lastly no pay for rental movies ...
But good food, awesome rooms, close to everything,

every thing about this hotel was great, location, service, staff even the room. The only conplaint I had was that the pillows were terrible! They were all the same lumpy foam that were very uncorfortable to sleep on.

Exactly what I want when I need a hotel room. Cost was good, Room was clean, staff was friendly and knowlegable. If I had any complaints...maybe offer fruit in the downstairs lobby store, but that is nitpicking. Solid choice for downtown stay.

I chose this hotel because I had stayed there in the past and because it was advertised (and I called to confirm) that they have a shuttle that will drive you to places within 2 miles. When I stayed last time, there was no fee for parking, it was free; now it cost $12/night. I went downstairs to ask the front desk for the shuttle, and the women replied "She normally works 7am-7pm during the week" (It was Saturday though), so I asked what time is the shuttle working today, she gave me the same answer. I basically kept asking about the hours, today, Saturday, now, and finally got that she works whatever hours she wants on Saturday. I went back to my room to get ready, and came back down in about an hour. I asked for the shuttle service, the same front desk woman just laughed and said she already left. This was 630. I was annoyed, I would have picked a different hotel if I knew this about their shuttle service. The woman was rude.
Breakfast was bad, sorry. It's still free, but the yogurt was expired. The bagels and muffins were stale and solid. The juice and fruit were good.
The room was nice, simple. Two beds, bathroom, good AC/heat. If you're looking for somewhere just to sleep, and no amenities, this will work for you.
I personally wouldn't stay here again. Disappointed and offended by the rude front desk woman.

During the American Civil War, Richmond was the capital of the Confederacy. Today, it is a center for arts, commerce, and state government. The Canal Walk, running 1.25 miles along the James River, is a trendy zone of restaurants, shops, and residential lofts. Other attractions include St. John’s Church (the site of Patrick Henry’s “Give Me Liberty” speech), and the Edgar Allen Poe Museum.
