Omni Charlottesville

Charlottesville, Virginia

The hotel

Short of sleeping in the shops and restaurants themselves, you can’t get much closer to Charlottesville’s historic Downtown Mall than this. Just moments from its 7 pedestrianised blocks of shopping, dining, theatres, and entertainment, Omni Charlottesville Hotel has the perfect pitch in the city. It even has views over Downtown Mall from its cool and casual restaurant, The Pointe, which forms part of the hotel’s stunning 7 storey atrium. Its address may be favoured by all who visit Charlottesville, but only guests get to step inside and enjoy the hotel’s line up of luxuries, which include a heated indoor pool and whirlpool, a seasonal outdoor pool, a fully geared up fitness hub, and guestrooms which mix contemporary comforts with a nod to the South’s legendary love of grace and refinement.

The Omni Charlottesville is a great hotel...spotless, well located, and it has free garage parking. Access to UVA, the downtown mall, and fine restaurants are easy. The hotel staff are courteous and efficient.

The room was a king room with nice amenities including a refrigerator, coffee, television, radio, etc. It overlooked the downtown area including a view of the walking mall. Appointments and supplies in the room were adequate and restocked daily. Great mattress with down pillows. Electrical outlets on both sides of the bed for clocks, CPAP, etc.… Read more

We had an electrical issue at our house that resulted in no power overnight, 90 degree heat! We decided to decamp to the nearest hotel for the night, which was the Omni.

We had an electrical issue at our house that resulted in no power overnight, 90 degree heat! We decided to decamp to the nearest hotel for the night, which was the Omni. Pleasant check in experience; I asked for a particular room in the ‘point’ of the building. Odd shape but very cool, queen bed. The breakfast the next morning was quite good and a little more interesting than most hotel breakfasts. Since we live in town, we are not likely to stay again soon, but we’ll happily recommend to our friends! Read less

It is a simple as location, location, location. The Omni Charlottesville is located adjacent to the historic downtown pedestrian mall and there you will find a number of fine restaurants and shops for you dinning and shopping pleasure. In addition to having a great location downtown, the staff from the front desk to housekeeping could not have been nicer. I will give special attention to the staff from the restaurant and bar, they are outstanding in every way. My wife requires a special diet, not always available while traveling, but the staff went out of their way to insure she had everything she needed both for breakfast and lunch. My hat is off to these excellent people, they made our stay most enjoyable. Great location, excellent staff, outstanding hotel, really could not ask for anything more. Read less

What a horrid place this is for the money. My partner and I PAID for a king room and were given a queen, and then told "sorry, no other rooms available." Our room was facing a few clubs, so the music also went on until 2 a.m. which was very unpleasant. I understand this can happen, but we should at least be warned on the web site that A. you are… Read more

Our room was facing a few clubs, so the music also went on until 2 a.m. which was very unpleasant. I understand this can happen, but we should at least be warned on the web site that A. you are not getting the type of room you want and B. it will be loud as heck! I will never stay here again, and warn all my friends away from it. Rubbish! Read less
