Relax at our Holiday Inn® hotels in Charlottesville, Virginia, a leafy college town in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. In no time you’ll be touring the stately home of Thomas Jefferson or sampling one of the boutique wines in a pastoral vineyard along the Monticello Wine Trail.
This pretty foothills hamlet is now a cosmopolitan city set against the scenic backdrop of moss-backed mountains. Our Charlottesville hotels are close to the historic sites of colonial days, when Thomas Jefferson chose a nearby hilltop to build his neoclassical home. Visit Jefferson’s estate at Monticello and admire the octagonal dome, the cooling “Venetian Porches” and the original furnishings. Head back into town to see another of Jefferson’s pet projects: the University of Virginia. The Charlottesville campus has Jeffersonian touches throughout, with classical pavilions, a Pantheon-like rotunda, and rolling lawns—all plotted out by Jefferson himself when he was 73 years old. Campus tours and admission to the Rotunda are free.
The area around the UVA campus is close to our Charlottesville hotels and a good place to find a hearty meal at student-budget prices. Elliewood Avenue, just off campus, is lined with many local favorite restaurants and nightlife. Immerse yourself in colonial ambience when you dine at Michie Tavern, a landmark tavern near our hotels in Charlottesville that dates from 1784. Set in a historic gristmill just a half-mile from Monticello, the tavern features waitstaff in crisp colonial attire and a Southern buffet groaning with old-fashioned biscuits, fried chicken and black-eyed peas.

We had a very nice stay at this hotel. Staff were friendly, the room was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was good. The only complaint I had was the very noisy air conditioner and toilet. They[More]
both worked fine, but were unusually noisy. The toilet sounded like the toilet on a jet with the loud sound of an air lock. The a/c was just loud when in use. [Less]
