Short of staying on the Lawn, I think this is the best all around place to stay in Charlottesville. The rooms are modern, tastefully decorated and clean with lots of space. It is most convenient to the business school and the law school, but the historic parts of "Mr. Jefferson's academically village" is a short ride away.

It starts at the front desk where courteous and helpful staff, especially Jo Hetrick, make me feel welcome, continues to the clean and comfortable room and ends in the on-site Pub with it's friendly staff and comfortable feel. I always stay at the Inn at Darden when I am in Charlottesville

My wife and I came to stay for one night while visiting our son, a first year student at UVA. A colleague who is a UVA-Darden grad recommended it. I booked it because my first and second choices were already full (parents' weekend draws a of people into Charlottesville) BUT I will never plan to stay anywhere else. Our room... More

Forget the misconception that these are glorified dorm rooms. This is a first-rate hotel, with all the amenities, at a reasonable price. If you have business at Darden or the Law School, all the better, but I would recommend this to anyone visiting Charlottesville.

We came to C'ville for a wedding, as well as for me to accomplish some things as a new UVA grad student. I have traveled significantly, and the Inn at Darden is one of my new favorites.

The Inn at Darden is great for visitors to Darden and UVA alike. Darden is literally outside the door, and it is a relatively short walk to the rest of UVA grounds. The staff were extremely helpful and accommodating, and the rooms were clean and well kept.
