Located a little less than an hour to the national park, Charlottesville is rich in history and culture, and the Hilton Garden Inn is a quiet and comfortable home base. Book a standard two-queen room, or, for more space and privacy, a suite with a king bed and pull-out livingroom sofa (plus a kitchenette and Jacuzzi). Families with young children are able to request cribs and high chairs, kids will love swimming in the indoor pool, and the onsite restaurants offer children’s menus so the whole family can enjoy meals there during your stay. Breakfast through dinner is offered daily, either at the Great American Grille or the Garden Grille & Bar, and you can drop by The Pavilion Pantry convenience mart to stock up on other essentials without leaving the property.

This Hilton Garden Inn had an exceptionally wonderful, welcoming staff. I felt at times as if I had walked into a family space, where everyone was genuinely happy. I will be traveling in this area again and though I have friends who invite me to stay with them, I believe because of the exceptional service at this hotel, I will return here.
This is our favorite hotel in Charlottesville-as far as price vs value. The people at reception are very friendly and professional. The rooms are spacious, have tall ceilings, and nice views. The beds are comfortable and the hvac works well. The fitness center and pool area were clean, and the lobby was comfortable for lounging. Also the walking trail around 3 ponds was a treat-we enjoyed waking up to the swan, turtles, and fish!
I wish the breakfast service was better-I had to serve my table drinks the first two mornings, as the waitress played on her phone. But the waitress on the morning of July 6th was friendly and attentive, despite being super busy-thank you!!
I am waiting for a response/refund in regards to charges for complimentary breakfast (I’m a Diamond Honors member).
All in all, I recommend this hotel.
