This is a wonderful Hampton Inn and the location is an easy walk to the Rotunda at UVA in one direction, the historic downtown in another and even the hospital is walkable. The service is excellent including the front desk, the breakfast attendants and the cleaning staff. We actually had two stays within a week due to an out of town family reunion, so we experienced two different rooms and locations. Each time we had a room with a king size bed and it was very clean and comfortable including the mattress. I preferred the room on the front of the building facing Main Street because the window was larger and noise was never a problem. There is construction on the lot next to the hotel going toward the downtown area, but we never heard any significant noise in either room. The only noise problem was from the heating and cooling unit when it turned on and off during the night. We solved the problem by heating up the room before going to sleep and then turning the unit off.
Plan early during the football season because they book up fast on those weekends. There is also a free shuttle to the downtown area and it is a nice service that we tried the first night. Then we realized that it was walkable in about a half hour. We enjoyed the historic downtown and found interesting restaurants there. The breakfast at the hotel has a lot of variety, but it was not our favorite part of the stay. It is not oriented toward natural foods enthusiasts, but instead has mostly processed foods in the standard American diet. The scrambled and boiled eggs were the most disappointing.
The two considerations that kept me from giving this hotel five stars was the heating and cooling unit and the processed breakfast. However, I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others. It is an excellent choice in Charlottesville.
