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.

I can't speak highly enough of the staff. They were helpful and friendly and provided us with some great tips to explore Charlottesville. With respect to the hotel itself, I am sure that this was a great hotel a few years ago. However, it now needs some TLC. That being said, it's very well located with plenty of amenities.

Always provided with excellent customer service. Food is also amazing!! Rooms are clean and comfortable. Staff members are friendly and eager to help with any needs. Our company always utilizes the Omni for our events and I can honestly say they always go above and beyond for us and we are so appreciate of this.

We stayed at the Omni for a banquet event. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Our room clean and had a nice view. The bathroom was very small and a bit dated. There are 2 elevators servicing the building. One was out of order during our stay. On a Saturday evening, the hotel was likely at capacity so there were waits for the elevator. We decided to dine at The Pointe restaurant located in the hotel because the food for the banquet, also held in the hotel, had not arrived by 9pm. Not sure if that was the plan or if it was just late. At The Point restaurant, we were told to wait despite there being many open tables. We finally asked the bartender if we could sit at one of the tables in the bar and he was friendly, seated us immediately and told us a server would be by. We waited and waited but no one came by to take our order. We noticed most of the tables were still sitting with their menus and not being served. A few got up and left. We decided to do the same after 20 minutes of no one coming by to take our order. Thus, I can't give a review of the food there but the service that evening was bad. The hotel is centrally located in Charlottesville so it's a great location. I do recommend staying here and hope what we experienced was an anomaly. Read less

Was only notified of power outage when we arrived. It was at night and our medical equipment, Cpaps, would not work and hotel had no response to find a solution for us when we made them aware of the issue. Otherwise, location, cleanliness, and appearance were good.
