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 place to stay when visiting Charlottesville, Virginia. The beautiful ambience of the hotel is evident from the lobby's entrance. I would highly recommend this hotel.

Wow, Great Location, Great Breakfast, Friendly Service and Very Clean/Well Maintained Hotel. It has been a long time since I've stayed at an OMNI Hotel but based upon this experience it may become my go to hotel chain. This hotel is located in downtown Charlottesville adjacent to the historic downtown Pedestrian Mall where you will find numerous restaurants, shops and movie theaters. The hotel interior (lobby and guest rooms) are very clean and well maintained. The package deal I had included free breakfast every morning and a free drink at night. The breakfast buffet was quite extensive with omelet station, bacon, sausage, cooked to order eggs, fruits, yogurts, assorted breads and pastries, juices and coffee/tea. Service at breakfast was very friendly and efficient. In fact, everyone we met at the hotel was friendly and always appeared willing to be of service. Indoor pool, hot tub, exercise room and free parking in their covered parking garage were also convenient. Read less

I stayed at the Omni Charlottesville for two nights while attending a conference at the hotel. The multi-story atrium, complete with fountains, does give off something of a cruise ship vibe but the rooms themselves are perfectly serviceable and clean. This hotel is not cute, interesting or chic. It is a basic business hotel. The gym has 3 treadmills, a couple of elliptical machines, and some free weights. This appeared to be adequate since I never needed to wait for a machine to be available. There are also small indoor and outdoor pools and a jacuzzi - all completely unoccupied. Ample free parking too. The hotel is super convenient to the cute pedestrian shopping street. Read less

If you want to feel like you are stepping back into the 90s, then this hotel is for you! The location on the downtown pedestrian mall is really the only thing going for it. My suite was dated, worn out, and with stains on the furniture. An old hard boiled egg was left in the fridge - all in all it was a 3 star experience at a 5 star price.

Free parking, no resort fee, outstanding reservation and check-in service, nice view of atrium from elevators, fine room but with a rather cozy bathroom, good dinner and breakfast. Will stay here again.
