Located on a wooded knoll overlooking the Rivanna River in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains just five miles from the University of Virginia, the area surrounding the Hotel is abound in historic and natural attractions. Over 20 vineyards along the Monticello Wine Trail and the historic Monticello home and gardens are in close proximity providing business and leisure guests with a variety of extended excursions during their stay.
Drawing inspiration from the surrounding landscape with a nod to the local wineries, a total renovation of the existing 259 key hotel’s public, amenity, guestroom and suite areas will transform the hotel with a modern fresh interior. The addition of front desk pods; connectivity zone; private dining wine spaces; enlarged restaurant/ bar/ lounge with fireplace will further enhance the hotel’s amenity spaces. A neutral architectural core will create a canvas backdrop for the vibrant artwork commissioned by local artisans to be located throughout the public & guestroom areas providing a contemporary hotel with a connection to the local wine and arts community.
