Situated in Charlottesville's historic downtown and completely renovated in 2013, this 2nd floor walk-up apartment represents what locals love: history and the Downtown Mall. Located on the corner of 1st and Main with views of the Downtown Mall, this lovely one bedroom encompasses the heart of Charlottesville and is at the center of great cuisine, art, theatre, live music, and incredible spectating.
With its original heart pine floors, this apartment boast quality and craftsmanship with features like granite counters, 6 ft tall windows overlooking the Mall, 9 ft ceilings, and modern design furnishings.
The location can't be beat in the middle of the downtown action! We like to note to future guests that this is a popular area (especially on the weekends) and the noise level on the Downtown Mall may be higher particularly on Friday and Saturday evenings. There is an event venue below the apartment that may have considerable activity into the late evening (12:00am).

Everyone was incredible. Sarah Beasley was our point person for the venue & she helped with questions & request at the apartment. She did everything she could to accommodate our request. And with a smile and such a positive attitude.
Our daughters wedding was at The Metropolitan and being upstairs was the best decision. Most of the guest were at the Omni so it was easy to coordinate activities with them. Walkable to the rehearsal dinner, bridal luncheon & was so easy having everything so close. We were getting lined up to start the wedding and the bouquet wasnt there. It was just upstairs so the coordinator just ran up the stairs and saved the day! The bride & groom also went upstairs between the ceremony & reception while we enjoyed the cocktail hour, then made their entrance through the main door. It was perfect!

Everyone we corresponded with was nice and professional. Communications about the property with check-in/out instructions were clear and detailed.
We rented the apartment to stay in during our wedding weekend at The Haven/Old Met, and it was such a wonderful and convenient place to stay we truly felt at home and had ample space to get ready for the big day.

Great - no complaints. Very nice service.
Lovely home; great location downtown. It was pretty loud at night but knew that going in, so wasn't surprised. The sound machine was a very nice touch. The view from the windows was so nice! There was a beautiful tree out the front windows that I loved! The dishware and cups/mugs were great, and lots of them which was awesome.

Sarah Beasley was my point of contact for the most part (wedding at OMH) - she was absolutely wonderful in every way possible. She actually showed me the apartments above the venue during our venue tour and I was immediately sold. Booked it as soon as I secured the venue!
The property was extremely convenient to the OMH (our wedding venue), which was perfect for getting ready/waiting for the ceremony to begin. Beautifully furnished, very clean, easy parking. It was great to be able to have my photographer come up and shoot our pre-wedding photos, our officiant up to speak with us pre-ceremony, and how convenient was it to retire there post-wedding!? Our only concern was the noise level both inside and outside of the property. The pedestrian mall was loud. The second night we found the sound machine in the bedroom which helped tremendously! Slept like babies with the fan noise!

Outstanding customer service. Professional, fast, and made it clear that the objective was for us to have a fun and hassle-free visit. So much nicer than dealing with BNB or VRBO. Thank you!
Could not ask for a more convenient location. Walked to dinner and breakfast, great views from the many large windows. Convenient parking steps away from the apartment entrance made the trip even more enjoyable, in a town where it is very tough to find a space!

The staff at Stay Charlottesville (Hillary and Sarah) are great, they were responsive and made sure we had everything we needed.
I can't recommend this apartment more, it was clean, well decorated and of course the locations is incredible. My husband and I rented all three Old Met properties for ourselves and our family for our wedding at Old Met and would couldn't have asked for anything better. Not to mention the stat at Stay Charlottesville are incredibly responsive and want to make sure you have taken care of. One of the best wedding vendors I worked with!

They were awesome!
We rented two Old Met apartments for our stay in Charlottesville. We felt lucky to find them since it was graduation weekend. They were amazing! The location was perfect and we were able to walk to campus for the graduation activities and also to restaurants and shops. Also, it was nice to have the parking right next door. It was a little noisy early in the morning and in the evenings, but we were warned about it.

Beautiful, spacious property at the very center of downtown Charlottesville (literally the center - the living room windows look out onto the city center marker on the Downtown Mall). Was the perfect spot for my (now) wife and I to spend our wedding weekend. Thanks, Stay C'ville! We will surely return and stay in Old Met #202 again!

Great! All professional in dealings/conversations. Very accommodating!
Property is in a great location. Can be loud late at night/early morning due to "foot traffic". There was also some sort of running race, and the concession tent was located right under our front window on the mall. At 7:30 a.m on Saturday morning, it was very loud with people shouting, etc..
