It's on the "North Grounds" at UVA -- by the law and business schools. NOT by the historic old Grounds by the Rotunda and the Lawn and whatnot. But if you're going to a game at JPJ, or attending an event in town for which main Grounds walking access isn't the top priority, you can't beat the Inn. No, it... More

The rooms are comfortable, and the Inn is especially convenient to the University of Virginia and attractions along Route 29. The Inn is typical of executive education facilities around the country. The setting is lovely and quiet, and the staff was exceptionally friendly.

The Inn at Darden was a nice surprise, set into the buildings on the North Grounds at UVA in such a way you wouldn't even know it was a hotel. We visited on a Saturday night when there were no events on campus so found parking easy and the hotel very quiet. The front desk staff was exceptionally friendly and... More

I was provided lodging at Darden during training at the nearby Business School. The check in process was seamless and quick. I had forgotten my shaving cream, and they provided me with a small can at no charge and asked if I needed anything else. I doubt these folks wouldn't do anything There is coffee, fruit and snacks in the... More

My husband and I were in town for a wedding and needed a place to stay for one night. For whatever reason, most places in the area were either booked or required a two-night minimum stay. We weren't looking for anything fancy and the Inn at Darden was available. Our room was clean and suited our needs for the night... More

When planning our visit to UVA for Family Weekend, we found many hotels in the area had 2-night minimums and pricey. This hotel allowed a one night stay and fit the bill--on the North Grounds (close to John Paul Jones Arena), convenient to the undergrad campus and within walking distance to Barracks Rd Shopping Center, with restaurant and shopping options....

We just stayed here for a weekend get away. It was right on UVA's campus and convent to get to. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The only downside was the parking garage was a little bit of a walk from the room.

with only one weekend and at the height of Foliage season finding accommodation near the Shenandoah was challenging. The Inn at Darden came to the rescue with aplomb. Expecting the classic University course accommodation digs I was really surprised; the clean, traditionally styled room met the bill after a long day on Skyline Drive. The staff, friendly and helpful pointed... More
