You Must Stay!

Jan 21st, 2020

This property is incredibly convenient for visiting UVA. It allowed for easy access to conduct business and meet friends. The staff are always attentive and the property is incredibly clean and well kept. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Long term consulting home away from home!

Jan 1st, 2020

I was on a long term consulting engagement and stayed at the Draftsman. The service was warm, welcoming and I miss their smiling faces. The rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable, robes and slippers are provided too. The restaurant is good. The Brussel sprouts are is the beet salad. I highly recommend staying here.

Best upscale hotel for families with dogs

Dec 30th, 2019

My husband and I congregated in Charlottesville with our two adult kids to celebrate the holidays. I booked this on-line when I was unsure of having secured a dog sitter. You might think a hotel that accepts dogs might not be so hot, but this hotel defies any preconceptions! Fantastic staff. The hotel is warm, inviting, and definitely has that hipster vibe. Rooms are big, with comfy furnishings and fantastic bathrooms. The lobby is a great place to hang out, and the bar makes the best old fashioned cocktail and has beer for every taste. We loved every moment we spent here and have already recommended it to friends. Great location, too. We will be back, this time with our furry family members. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

My parents stayed here for the past year on numerous occasions, but I had the opportunity to stay in May 2019. Amazing hotel. The rooms are clean, well appointed, and comfortable. The rooms usually have a nice view. Close to UVA and many activities around town. If you’re a walker, you can get most anywhere without a car. The staff is hands down the best. They took care of my and my parents throughout the year, knew who we were, always greeted us, and showed a genuine interest in us and our comfort. We love these people! The bar was nice; staff was always friendly. The food at the restaurant was overpriced and not always the best. We think there could be improvements in this area, but I can’t complain based on the rest of the hotel. We miss you Draftsman staff! Thanks for taking care of our family throughout this past year.

Thanksgiving with Family

Dec 16th, 2019

My family and I loved the Draftsman hotel. Immediately we felt welcomed by the Staff. One in particular was Avery at the front desk, this gentle giant greeted us with a warm smile and armed us with all the information we needed to make our stay as comfortable as possible. He showed exemplary knowledge of the hotel and the surrounding area. Anything we needed he made available. We plan to visit the Draftsman again,in the New Year and hope that Avery will be there upon our return. A note to management, he is more than front desk material. A great young man! And a Great Hotel! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
