During our recent stay in Charlottesville, we were lucky enough to be hosted by the brand new Hyatt Place Charlottesville. This spotless hotel is the perfect place to rest for a comfortable stay during your visit to Charlottesville. It oozes sophistication with its simple modern decor, and their fresh hot cooked breakfast featuring all new breakfast sandwich combinations was just one of the amenities that we enjoyed so much during our stay.

The Room

Although we were only in town for two nights we hoped to enjoy as much of Charlottesville as possible during our stay. That meant maximizing our time. It took only minutes to check in and start getting settled in our room. We had a standard room with two queen beds as well as a cozy corner with a sleeper sofa. This is a great option for larger families like ours, so that you can save from the added expense of two rooms, but still have plenty of space.

The room was equipped with plenty of electrical outlets, which I appreciated while being on such a long road trip. I always had plenty of do dads to charge. Other in room amenities include free Wi-Fi, 42″ flat screen HDTV, coffee maker and mini fridge.

The “Cozy Corner” which was a sectional sofa by day perfect for sitting as a family during afternoon breaks, was a sleeper sofa at night, providing extra bedding options for the kids. The bedding was really comfy too, something I always look for since my bed at home is so wonderful!

Perhaps the best amenity of the Hyatt Place Charlottesville is there wonderful free breakfast. Each morning we went downstairs to a wide variety of breakfast options. From fresh fruit, to cold cereals, waffles and especially their fresh cooked breakfast sandwiches, there was something to please everyone.

The hotel also has a nice indoor pool that we sadly never got to take advantage of, as well as a fitness and business center. There is a small cafe area downstairs by the registration desk that has delightful and delicious desserts in the evening. You can also order light meal options from here or your room during the day, and there is a bar area too. The cupcakes here are divine!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hyatt Place in Charlottesville. It may not have all the extra bells and whistles of a luxury resort, but it is a great budget friendly option with plenty of extra perks for those traveling on business or with their families. Their prices are affordable, especially for larger families who can fit into one room.

  1. I was just in Virginia Beach last weekend – it was great. Such a beautiful state. That desk is awesome – I could get SO much work done there!!

  2. I love how spacious the room is and the bathroom! I also love me a good indoor pool! Looks like a great place to stay!

  3. Trying to fit a family of 5 into a regular hotel room is impossible! But the kids just aren't old enough to be alone. Normally we have to pay extra for a suite. Your room looks just perfect though with the sleeper couch. We don't have any vacations planned right now, but when we do I'll be looking at Hyatts.

  4. Love the minimalist look. I'm sure it helped you unwind in the evening. The breakfast sandwiches are a big plus, yum. I wish I was staying there right now.

  5. I like budget friendly balanced with family-friendly and breakfast and a pool are on top of my must-have list!

  6. Hyatt always has such nice hotels. This looks like an awesome family friendly place to stay.
