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.
