Everything in this hotel is as close to perfect as it gets. From the moment I walked in the staff was friendly and helpful which made for a quick and easy check in. When I got into my room (602) I was pleasantly suprised to see that it was totally remodeled. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. New drapes...

From reading the mixed reviews, I assume the hotel is in the process of renovating. I am a Club member and was on the 7th floor. The room was very spacious, with a desk to work on and a small corner table with 2 chairs. Furniture, carpeting and window dressings look new. Free wireless access, a large flat screen TV....

I have been staying at this property for many years. The recent renovation is an extra perk for me, I mainly stay because of the staff. They always greet me by name and make me feel like a home away from home.

Stayed here to go visit UVA with my daughter. On plus was it was close to the college....otherwise, look elsewhere. First, I think the mattresses were older than the building itself. It felt like you were sleeping on the springs. The rooms were old and outdated. The TV looked like it was a yardsale throwaway and sounded like it too....

The hotel decor was attractive with a welcoming real fire in the lobby on a cold evening. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was spacious with a choice of firm or soft pillows though they were on the small side. We found everything to be very clean and well kept. Even though our room was on the...

First, we got better price just calling directly to the front desk than the web. The pool is convenient, very small, the water wasn't heated enough for my 5 y.o., and it didn't look very clean to me. The exercise room was ancient, but I got to go for a walk without incidences. It was smelly for sure. The TV,...

I stayed at this hotel a couple of times and wrote an honest review, but never published. The people work there are very polite for sure. I got upgrades every time due to the platinum status (Priority Club). But the property is aging and needs renovations badly. The room and part of the hotel like fitness room are smelly. After...

This property is nicely redone. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Traffic outside the hotel on Rt. 29 can be very heavy at times. This property is very close to UVA, and its proximity along with the friendliness of the staff make it a great place to stay.
