4.4/5 Excellent

Guests rated this property 4.6/5 for cleanliness.
Happy face icon
The property was great. What a shame that we paid full price for a hotel with absolutely zero amenities. We have a hard time understanding why bars and restaurants right next door and in the neighborhood have made COVID arrangements, but a 4 star hotel cannot even have one person on staff. -Paid full price for none of the benefits.

Berkeley review
Nothing was open. Gym,bar, no room service, no cleaning of room. Had to ask for towels and water. Front desk girl very short with questions asked and would not stay at the Berkeley Hotel again. We felt like more of a nuisance to her. Most likely would stay at the Omni across the street.

Disappointment by an old favorite
We have stayed numerous times at The Berkeley and have always liked it. When going to Richmond, it is the first hotel that I check for availability. Our stay on this trip was different in that the room was not as nice as usual, much smaller and somewhat worn. I had actually booked the most expensive room available, and when I expressed my disappointment to the desk clerk, I was advised that no other room was available. In checking the internet after speaking to the desk clerk, I found numerous rooms still available. On our next trip to Richmond, we will definitely investigate other hotel options.

This is a great hotel in a great area of Richmond. Although my partner and I will look forward to staying there again in the future there are three things that need attention: 1) the bath/shower has no hand rail making it a bit risky for older guys like me, 2) there was only one small bar of soap available, 3) although cleanliness was evident elsewhere, a hunk of someone's hair was left in a corner of the tub hidden by the shower curtain.

Convenient location and comfortable room!
Very convenient and comfortable hotel. They handled the pandemic situation very well and we felt taken care of at all times. Had little interaction with hotel staff which is a benefit these days.
