          It is a comfortable luxury hotel and located perfectly. Staff is friendly and available. Rooms are large and plush.

          Not a thing

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          What a wonderful surprise to drive up to the Berkeley Hotel and be met with old fashioned southern grace and welcome. I didn't expect to see the quality of the facilities and our room. I thought that for this elegance I should be paying much more. The service from the staff was excellent, friendly and professional.

        • Older travelers

          Hot weekend(105 degrees +) could drop the temp lower than 70 degrees in the room. Friendly staff. Noicey. Great location.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Very convenient to downtown Richmond. We were there for a niece's graduation from Virginia Commonwealth Univ. And all the activities were only a short walk away. It is also very close to the State Capital and to all the activity along the James River.

        • Older travelers
          7.4

          It was in a very nice historic part of Richmond that had become or is becoming a trendy area.

          The hotel is in need of some general maintenance or more regular upkeep. You can see that it was at some point a top notch hotel, but it has started to slide. That being said it could quickly become a 5 star hotel again with a little more care.

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Love that it is small and very restful. Excellent service. Lots of atmosphere. Reminds me of the way hotels use to be before they became so generic.

          Unfortunately, from our room, we could hear a great deal of noise from the area bars and restaurants until the wee hours of the morning.

        • Couple
          10.0

          it was beautiful, nicely appointed, excellent staff and great location.

          Service was excellent. Loved the room and the live jazz.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Location and style.

          Traffic noise levels were high throughout the night. Room lighting was poor and a/c kept stopping.

        • Older travelers
          9.4

          Nice location, pleasant atmosphere

          Poor breakfast selection. Rather noisy room on street side.

        • Family with children
          9.2

          the staff were very friendly and always helpful

          Did not like the room facing the alley

        • Couple
          10.0

          The location was perfect for dining and night life. The rooms were very comfortable and loved the classic style.

          I went to take my showers infamy morning before checking out and had no hot water. Was a terrible way to start my day. But other then that an excellent stay.

        • Older travelers

          Our room was comfortable but small. Bathroom tissue holder not filled between occupants.

          The restaurant has completely changed since our last trip - which would have been New Year's Eve '05 or '06. We also spent our wedding night in '05. Food was exceptional with local ingred. At this point we would not return.

        • Older travelers

          Chris. The valet.

          Breakfast took forever to get menus and longer to get food. Room service person who brought food berated us for marking menu card wrong.

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          First class amenities and service.

          We should never have been put into a room two floors above street level in front of the building, and not told that there would be lots of noise; music, young people out in the street from 10 P.M. - 3 A.M. It did not appear that the hotel was full, so we should have been given a more quiet location,
