“Friendly service freshly updated”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

You know what the rooms at a Residence in will be like since they are the same across the country. The Charlottesville property though has very friendly efficient employees that set it apart from other hotels of this category. You don't expect Ritz Carlton service at a Residence Inn but any service you do receive at this property is delivered with a friendly sincere smile. The location is very conveniently located to University of Virginia and a shopping plaza. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone staying one night or an extended basis in the area.

Forget about all of those past reviews for this former so-so property. The renovations are complete and they did it right, for sure! No skimping on anything - from the lobby, interior areas and rooms - everything is new! The clubhouse main room is totally modern and spotless and the breakfast area is fantastic - as is the breakfast! From the moment we arrived, we were "wowed"! And now on to our room - we had a 1-BR suite. Everything brand new - paint, carpeting, appliances, furniture, beds, linens - the total package. The Residence Inn now has to be the nicest place to stay in Charlottesville. The price is a bargain for the quality you will receive!

I stayed here while attending a course at UVA. I got one of the older rooms, which was quite fine but dated. A colleague of mine got one of the nicer, updated third floor rooms. So when checking in - be sure to ask for an updated room! Apparently, they have new furniture, stainless steal appliances, fresh paint, etc.

While I was staying there, the entire front desk area was shut down and moved into hotel rooms on the first floor. The gym, which is small to begin with, was relocated as well into what would normally be a hotel room. It was quite awkward.

The manager however was quite nice and very apologetic about the state of the hotel. The breakfasts were out of this world - best complimentary breakfast I've had. Evening fare as well was fantastic.

After the updates are complete, this will be the place to stay near UVA

Details: two nights' stay in early-November 2012. The one-bedroom suite was plenty large and well-furnished, if entirely ordinary and a little tired-looking. Specifically, the sofa upholstery sported a nasty stain of considerable size. Yuck.

As for the hotel's culinary fare, the included breakfasts were good except for the coffee -- which, sadly, was execrable. IMO -- there's no excuse for serving foul coffee. A bigger issue, however, and in stark contrast to several other Residence Inns at which I have stayed, this hotel's complimentary evening fare (supposedly a signature amenity of Marriott Residence's brand) was perfunctory and bore the dull chemical taste of factory-sealed serving pouch-to-plate institutional food. Fortunately, competent dinner fare was available at a large shopping center across the street.

I have stayed in many other better travelers' hotels and, to be fair, also a few that were worse. Overall, Marriott Residence Inn Charlottesville fell closer to the "worse" side of the spectrum of my experiences than the hoped-for result. And, for $150/night, I expected more. With serious effort, I expect this franchise could be considerably better.

Stayed here third week of October to see Jefferson's design at UVA, Monticello and go to Bruce Springsteen concert at John Paul Jones Arena. We stayed three nights. From the moment we checked in until we departed, we were greeted with warmth and enthusiasm by every single employee we encountered on the grounds. And, even though this hotel was on the eve of beginning renovations, the rooms were more than adequate, comfortable, clean. This property is so ideally located to UVA and we could even walk (although a distance) to the downtown mall. With the free shuttle system in place in downtown Charlottesville, we could navigate back fairly easily from downtown using the free shuttle part way. There are restaurants close by and also a shopping center virtually across the street with grocery store, retail shopping and restaurants. Would happily recommend this property to anyone and once they have the renovations complete it should be a top rating property. Morning breakfast tasty and replenished regularly.

This is typical, somewhat older Residence Inn in its mid-range architecture and decor. Our kids always appreciate the 2 bedroom suite. This a tradeoff for space versus a full-service hotel. Breakfast area seating is on the small side and can fill up quickly. Parking lot sometimes can be full later in the evening forcing you to park on the street. Proximity to the nearby shopping area is convenient for shopping and dining though the Harris Teeter supermarket can be pricey.

Room Tip: Rooms at the rear or either end of the hotel are quieter.

Great location a little away from the university but close to all the Barracks shops. Clean, big rooms with kitchenette and a pretty good breakfast. Super comfortable bed, although the pull-out sofa was a bit uncomforable.
