Historical Traveler Reviews Omni Charlottesville
Nice hotel with free parking in probably the best location in Charlottesville. On the downtown mall and 20 min walk ( or 3 min drive) to university. Staff was pleasant and helpful and room was spacious and nicely appointed.
My husband and I choose the hotel fro it's name and we had our room updated to a suite for the weekend stay. I was Very Disappointed once we walked in the room, I had thought the suite would have been one large room not two separate (the suite consited of an ajoining room with sitting area and bathroom). The decor was horribly outdated, I was almost mad of the appearance. The service we had was fine the rooms itself was awful. If you are looking for a nice hotel to stay in this is not it. Try the Boars Head Inn....
Great home away from home
I have stayed at the Omni for two weeks in late June for each of the last three years. Each stay has been excellent!
Not 4 Star Hotel
Not the 4 star hotel listed in AAA. We were givena hotel room above the pool. Smell of chlorine wasgoing through the air condition vent. They did makearrangements for another room. The 2nd room wasmuch smaller, and had a musty smell. The room hadan air purifer plugged in to clear up the musty odor, but definately not a 4 star room. Very disappointedin accommodations. Would not stay there again!!
Good place, great location
The Omni is a pleasant, if unremarkable, establishment. Pluses include its cheerful, accomodating staff, an ideal location at one end of Charlottesville's charming downtown pedestrian mall and free on-site guest parking. Minuses: We overheard conversations (not shouting) from an adjoining suite, and the breakfast buffet offered as part of our weekend package was just OK. Request a room with a view of the atrium, the mall or the Blue Ridge mountains.
Wonderful "Get Away" weekend
Could not have asked for better accomodations. Service, food and location were excellent. Thanks, Omni for a wonderful experience.
"Stay Somewhere Else" is insane. My room was perfect. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Food was excellent. Coming to C'ville? Stay here!
Friendly staff, excellent decor. Could never get the ac / heat to work in the room, but luckily didn't need it. Breakfast buffet pretty decent. Based on the excellent rate received, it's definitely a good deal.
I dont know what that other person had experienced but we just loved it. All the friendly people who worked there, you just know they love the job. From the housekeepers to the desk, just simply awesome...the other surrounding hotels would not even come close..do not stay at any other hotel..close to downtown mall, walking distance to rest. theater, and even an iceskating rink. The free trolley was perfect to tour the area, and it is 15 minutes from Monticello. Please dont listen to that other comment...go visit them
Stay Somewhere Else
The Omni Charlottesville is not one of the properties to uphold the Omni name. Given the reputation of the chain, the service is horrible and the dining is worse. The non-smoking room we were given smelled like smoke with a bit of air-freshener sprayed over the top of it. When we asked to move rooms (my wife is very allergic to smoke), we were told that we were already in a non-smoking room and our request was denied.
If you are coming to C'ville, stay somewhere else.

... and wine cellars, storage areas, and the indoor privy. Whenever I get the chance, I photograph the toilets in the homes of celebrities and historical figures because they serve as reminders that these people are mere humans, just like the rest of us. That being the case, I grabbed a picture of Jefferson's privy, so I now have a photograph of where president number three went number one and number two.

We are trying not to throw everything in the truck on Wednesday morning like crazy maniacs. So we started laying things out and making lists Friday night. We have all the pieces of the boat and the canopy and the tent. Laundry is in the works. Who knows how we will get everything to ...
... convictions and tells you exactly how he feels. I can’t think of any better example then his response when I asked if he would be willing to drive the night shift to start the trip off: “Hell no, that ain’t me”. That may not be a direct quote but the hand gestures said it all. Don’t get me wrong Pat is the most important part of this trip. I could say this because of his calming presence or wide range of knowledge but what I mean by ...
We had our last friendship visit tonight. It was a dance party and it went great! I was hanging with a man named Benjamin and his parents. Ben was really shy but by the end if the night we had him doing the disco. On the bike today was just TJ and I in a two man paceline. ...

But....the Frizz’s advice is a pretty good bit of wisdom, I think. It’s a good way to go about things, even beyond the transient lifestyle of travel. At least, I tell myself that whenever I fall flat on my face for the umpteenth time.
