Hilton Garden Inn Charlottesville
Travel Blogs from Charlottesville
We didn’t have too far to drive today, only 2.5 hours so we took our time leaving the hotel even ordering a room service breakfast that was actually quite nice. It would have been better if the fruit platter wasn’t frozen but you can’t have it all I guess. We got some great poached eggs for our first time this trip so that kept me …
Today was our last college tour day which is bittersweet given the learning and fun that we've had along the way. Our morning began at the Hilton Garden Inn just off interstate I-64. We opted for the suite room and can't say that I regret the extra space, 1 and 1/2 baths, separate bedroom and walk-in shower and whirlpool tub. The breakfast is made …

... she already knew).
Around midnight I heard lots of yelling and exclamations. Shortly thereafter,Betsy walked in with the cash spilling out of her pocket. She was the big winner! The wives of the men, who I met the next weekend at a joint family camping trip, were all thrilled to have a woman beat their husbands. Several of them said, "you know, our husbands are really competitive." I just smiled and said, "you haven't met Betsy, have you?."

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Garden Inn Charlottesville
Gave our room to someone else..
Traveling with my wife and 20 month old son we decided to split our
trip to my parents in half and stay in Charlottesville after we found this hotel that provided a suite. Booked the room 1 month+ in advance, checked in at 6:00PM - was greeted with "oh, this is the problem, we overbooked and gave your room away" nice way to explain it. They provided a free room (I would have rather paid the $250 for a good nights sleep) .
Hotel is nice a clean, breakfast was really good.
TV in the room has a bad menu system on it and the picture looks horrible no HD channels on a HDTV.
Just returned from a 1 night stay at the HGI Charlottesville. The hotel is easy to get to and is brand new. The room was as requested--2 queen beds, upper floor, near elevator. Even though we were near the elevator we never heard any noise from it.
I stayed here for 7 nights. The hotel paid a lot of attention to details that just made the stay a little more pleasant. For example, the floor lamp could be turned on with your foot, the cremora for coffee was liquid instead of powder, duvet covers, etc. I was attending a course on the campus of UVA and therefore I used the shuttle daily. Much to my surprise, the service and drivers were always reliable.
The food at the restaurant was above average for a hotel restaurant. All of the hotel staff were friendly and courteous. If I return to the Charlottesville area, this hotel would be my first choice for lodging.
Went on a girls trip to Charlottesville and stayed here for the weekend. The newly built hotel is located right off of 250 about 10 minutes from the downtown mall area. The hotel offers free parking. Service was excellent from the moment we checked in. The friendly people behind the front desk remembered us throughtout our stay and always made a point to greet us and ask us how our stay was going. We stayed in a 1 bedroom evolution suite which was clean and spacious. The suite had a sitting room with a pull-out sofa, microwave, little fridge, flat screen tv and 1/2 bath, and the attached bedroom had a comfortable king-size bed, another flat screen tv and large bathroom. Ask for a room that faces the pond in the back. The back of the hotel has a nice sitting area that overlooks the pond and fountain. We spent one late afternoon sitting back there drinking wine and enjoying the weather. In terms of food, the hotel has a small restaurant that serves a full American breakfast with eggs, bacon, fruit, pastries, etc. and even makes omelettes to order. They also offer dinner in the evenings but we never ate there during our stay. The location of the hotel was accessible to the downtown mall area and many local wineries. Overall, we had a great experience at the Hilton Garden Inn and would definitely be back for another stay.
Can you believe I stayed in a hotel in my own home town?
Wow. Book it while you can.
Beautiful, brand new property. Stayed for one night in March, 2007. Brightly lit, extremely clean property. I got a rate under $100 with AAA and wonder if that will remain as it becomes more popular. Free wireless internet. Refrigerators and microwaves in rooms. Movies in rooms if that interests you. Widescreen, plasma tvs in rooms. I was booked into a king room and the rooms were good size with larger than average bathrooms. Located on edge of town and very quiet. Open parking free of charge. Pantry available in lobby. Gym and business center.
My wife and I had decided togo away for the weekend and noticed this new Garden Inn had opened so decided to try it. Located just one minute off I-64 so ideal for those looking for a stop over from a long highway drive and it is situated in a new development overlooking a lake out the back. Overall rather pleasant.
Let me just start by saying it is a really nice, clean brand new hotel. But there is nothing special. First the TV's are not HD they are just flat screen so the quality is horrible. Also they do not have room service for Breakfast at all. Now I will say the location is wonderful and the there is free high speed internet.
We greatly enjoyed a 2-nights' stay over the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday. We booked over the hotel website, and with a AAA discount were able to get a rate of just over $134 for a VERY LARGE 2-room king-bedroom suite.
