The Faulkner Room blends modern touches with the atmosphere of a more romantic era. Staying here is like settling into a private sitting room filled with literary ramblings and evening plans.
The Townsman is the newest concept in hotel accommodations. Instead of charging you for things you’ll never use, we’ve pared ourselves down to the essentials. Incredible locations. Beautiful rooms. Great prices. Once you book with us, we’ll give you a code that grants you access to the hotel and your room. After that, all you have to do is show up. No check-in. No hassles. Just a boutique hotel, steps from the places you most want to be.
Where are you located exactly?
We’re at 211 West Main Street, right on Charlottesville’s historic Downtown Mall. 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.
Where do Townsman guests park?
One parking pass is emailed to each Townsman guest for The First and Market Parking Lot behind our event hall, Old Metropolitan Hall, which is a short block and a half away on the Downtown Mall. The front door to The Townsman is on the pedestrian mall adjacent to Downtown Grille. Guests must print their parking pass for use; Stay Charlottesville does not have an on-site office and The Townsman does not have a front desk.
How does the code work?
Our front door and the door to your room will feature a keypad into which you’ll enter your personal code. The code we give you when you book is given to no one else and only works for the duration of your stay.
What services do you offer?
What we offer is a room you’ll love in a downtown location that can’t be beat. To keep our prices where you want them, we don’t have an onsite staff, front desk, room service or amenities you may not need; but we do have Charlottesville’s downtown walking mall, restaurants, coffee shops, a movie theater, and local boutique shopping just steps away.
Do you have Internet access?
Yes! The Wi-Fi code will be in your room.
Will there be a phone in my room?
We do not have phone service but the building does have good cell service, so bring your phone and stay connected.
