Why We Love This Hotel

  • The hotel is two blocks from Capitol Square and a short walk to the Canal Walk and the Virginia State Capitol
  • It's a quick weekend trip from Washington, D.C. -- just a three-hour drive away
  • Located in the historic Shockoe Slip neighborhood with charming cobblestone streets and numerous dining options

The Berkeley is an intimate boutique hotel located only three blocks from the riverfront. Built in 1988, the red-brick building, perched on iconic cobblestone streets, was designed to resemble the historic architecture surrounding it. The hotel sits on Cary Street in the lively Shockoe Slip, a former manufacturing district that now boasts many dining options and nightlife. It’s a great base for sightseeing, positioned two blocks from Capitol Square and 15 minutes on foot from the American Civil War Center. The Edgar Allan Poe Museum is also just a short walk away.

Take your exercise outdoors -- the 1.25-mile Canal Walk trail starts just around the corner and provides easy access to the only metropolitan white-water river in the country. Jog the Virginia Capital Trail to the east for glimpses of downtown sights, or head west for the wilder North Bank Trail.

The in-house restaurant, Cobblestone Bar & Grill, is traditionally decorated and serves contemporary southern cuisine.The rooms have high ceilings, carpeted floors and inlaid cherry-wood furniture, and a traditional turndown service is offered nightly. All rooms include complimentary Wi-Fi, in-room coffee makers and morning newspapers.
