  • 6.0.Good

    A little costly for what you get

    Decorated nice but really feels like that’s what a person is paying for in addition to being close to the hospital. No coffee maker, microwave, or extra TP in the room. Really a pain to go to the front desk for TP. All in all a decent place to stay but would never pay this much for this room anywhere else. My mom was in the hospital and it was convenient, so the location was really good.

    Great location

    The location cannot be best if you are visiting UVA. Otherwise, this hotel is average; furnishings and condition of rooms is old. No coffeemaker or microwave in room. Free coffee in the lobby. Restaurants closed due to COVID. Rooftop was closed for private party. Best part was location and staff were very friendly.

  • 4.0.Fair

    What you see is not what you get.

    This hotel was a disappointment and not worth the price. The bar/restaurant was not open during the stay, information that was several clicks deep on their website. Had I known, I wouldn't have chosen it. They also were going to charge for valet despite my status with giving me free valet. The room was nice, bed comfy, but dirty towels were strewn about the hallways. Location is good. But that is about it.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Very disappointed

    We choose this place because the restaurant, the tavern and Coffee shop plus the game room for our son, All amenities on site were not available due to a private party. We even had to use the stairs to get to our room because so many people were waiting to get to the private party. Very disappointed!!

    Not a great Graduate property as the theme isn’t pulled off very well here plus it was not very clean and had incredibly loud air conditioning. Nice rooftop however.

    An okay stay

    The hotel wasn’t as clean as past Graduates we’ve stayed at, had to change room due to bathroom not clean. In their defense lightening had struck the hotel and they were scrambling to fix some issues it caused.

    Just ok

    Location was IDEAL and made getting around / walking around perfect for our needs. Cleanliness and upkeep of the hotel was mediocre +. I had higher expectations.

    Avoid this place

    None of the food and beverage amenities were open - no cafe, no rooftop bar, etc and their website failed to mention this. The room was in a bad state of repair - I ended up needing to personally fix the toilet at 5am. This was a 2 star experience for a 4 star price. The location is convenient, but there are many other better hotels nearby.

    Great area if businesses were open. Many, many closed! Courteous! Cafe closed, no ice unless you request then on another floor! Virtually NO bathroom amenities like soaps, shampoo, etc.. Power on and off through the night with no satellite signal part of time. Other than that, a great place!
