“Wonderful stay for a wedding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

My husband and I recently stayed at this Hilton Garden Inn for a wedding. The hotel was sold out the entire weekend we were there. Our room was not ready until 2:45 due to full occupancy, but we relaxed in the lobby while we waited. We had a nice king room on the top floor, right on the end. The room was very clean and comfortable. The bed was wonderful and made getting up in the morning hard! We had a refrigerator which was a nice bonus. The breakfast was really good in the morning and my husband enjoyed drinks at the bar both nights. Hotel rooms in Charlottesville are generally pretty expensive, but we did not mind spending the money because we felt that the room and location were totally worth it!

Room Tip: We stayed at on floor 4 on the end and it was very quiet!

Stay here and thoroughly enjoyed it immensely. Free shuttle service to downtown. Rooms were clean, large and quiet. I would recommend highly. I used points without any problem and at good rate. Did not have a meal so cannot rate that. Free coffee in room and at restaurant.

I had a good experience at the hilton in Richmond last year and decided to try the Hilton in Charlottesville, VA this August when I was driving south. I would not stay here again, overpriced with terrible beds!

All HGI's I have stayed at have been virtually identical, and that is a good thing. The lobby downstairs is surprisingly big, with varied conversation areas and decent furniture. The breakfast area/small bar is also larger than competitors, and generally nicer. The staff is professional and efficient.

The rooms are higher quality and well designed---someone actually thought about what you need, and what you don't need, esp at the desk. Nice flatscreen, nice mattresses, very clean. I was in Cville for UVA movein weekend, so the price was north of what I would expect, but I was happy to get it.

The reverse side of the hotel looks out on a pond with two resident swans, and up the hill is one of the nicest looking hospitals in the country, the Martha Jefferson.

Breakfast in the morning features a nice selection of "grab and go" type stuff plus also a made to order selection of omelette, eggs, waffles, etc. The bacon and sausage are first rate, and being in the almost South as we are, has bisquits and white gravy, or chipped beef, etc.

The place was busy in the morning and the cook lost my order, which caused me a great deal of consternation, as I saw fancy omelettes and waffles being whisked out to waiting tables, but my simple "2 eggs" somehow stumping the chef, or at least, the system. The wait staff was appropriately apologetic, but this type of thing does not general good will.

Don't get me wrong---I'm very positive about this place, and will stay here again. The location is higher on the hill, and thus a little farther from the madding crowds and traffic below, and I'm perfectly OK with that. It is next to a steak place called "Topekas", but we didn't go.

Recommended.

Great experience at this very nice and what seems like a new hotel. Very clean, friendly and helpful staff. Not situated within walking distance to the University or Historic town it is still a great place to stay - very comfortable. Would stay here again.

Stayed here for a night and will be staying here again. Very clean, updated, great staff and the rooms are excellent. Got a chance to have dessert and a few drinks at the small restaurant and while a little pricey, food and drink were fine. The location is close (driving, not walking) to shops and restaurants and not too far from the UVA campus. No complaints.

My husband and I stayed here for three nights from the 11 July 2012. We loved where The Hotel was situated. We had a suite, this consisted of a big sitting room, big bedroom, very large bathroom which had an enormous bath tub, separate shower and toilet. With a sink of course. There was a closet in the bedroom and one in the sitting room. By the room door was another room which had a toilet and sink in side. At one end of the sitting room was a sink fridge and microwave. The hotel was very clean and friendly. The view of the lake was lovely. We were able to shut the door between the sitting room and bedroom at night, so it was very quiet. Even though the Hotel was full. We were charged 841.50 dollars. This is not cheap. For the size of the suite we think this was fair.

Room Tip: Ask for a room over looking The Lake.
