“A pleasant experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

Mom has cancer so we are in Morgantown every 6 months for follow up at Mary Babb Randolph. All is going well, and staying here made this trip so much more enjoyable than other places we have stayed in town. Everyone we met was pleasant and helpful. The room was spacious but still had a cozy feel. It is so convenient to the healthcare campus (maybe a 7-10 minute drive with traffic), we will be staying here again. Thank you for a nice, pleasant stay.

We stayed at the Chestnut Boutique for only one night for a mini-getaway and date-night. The hotel is spectacular. The decor is splendid, and though very modern, is warm and welcoming. This is true both in the common spaces (lobby, hallways, etc.) and the rooms. The beds were beckoningly comfortable with the softest sheets and blankets and pillows that, unlike most hotels, were fluffy and comforting, not broken down. The place was immaculately clean (and, as a former hotel housekeeper at a swanky chain hotel, my standards are impeccably high) and well-stocked. What's more, having the Big Whiskey restaurant, bar, and dance hall practically attached to the hotel made our evening out really fun. The Rock Top bar and grill on the roof was unfortunately closed during our stay, but we're planning another quick trip in the summer so we can experience that as well.

We've stayed in a lot of hotels in the Morgantown area, and this is far and away our all-time choice from now on. You won't be disappointed with this!

Room Tip: We choose the Deluxe queen with the Jacuzzi tub, and it was totally worth the extra money. The view...

As a frequent traveler to Morgantown, I've stayed in every hotel in town. This is a great new and different addition. It's location is key, the closest hotel and easy walk to the downtown campus. The rooms are spacious and a lot of effort was devoted to the warm and inviting decor. You can walk to many restaurants and shops, and the hotel has a fun rooftop bar. If you prefer boutique to chain, this is the way to go.

Great hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Covered parking available. Beautiful rooms. The ability to walk to campus, High Street, and the PRT is the best feature!
We will be back to enjoy the rooftop and lobby bar(it was not completed for our visit).

Thank you for taking a moment to add a review of our new hotel for fellow travelers. You couldn't have said it better about the convenience of our location in the heart of downtown Morgantown - so close to much of Morgantown and WVU. We look forward to welcoming you back to The Chestnut Hotel, to enjoy the open air rooftop area and the lobby bar.

Enjoyed a one night stay at the Chestnut while visiting our daughter at WVU. Megan at the front desk was incredibly helpful and made us feel extra special. The rooms are nice and large and the bathrooms very well appointed. Felt like we were a guest in someone's house. Welcomed and pampered. Breakfast was simple, tea from the Tea Shoppe was a nice surprise. Excellent location in the middle of downtown. Would definitely stay again!

I frequent Morgantown West Virginia for business about 3 to 4 times a year. Finding a hotel that provides the perfect balance between great location and upscale accommodations and amenities has been a struggle. Look no further than the Chestnut Hotel. One big plus is its proximity to downtown. It is also owned by the same owners of Big Whiskeys and Rock Top so you have direct access to some pretty good nightlife venues to unwind.

The rooms are well appointed and beds are super comfy. Chestnut has mini bar options and toiletries that are expected for a boutique hotel.

Overall a great experience!
