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.
On the second-floor landing you’ll find:
A refrigerator available to all guests
Complimentary bottles of water & coffee
Advance one night reservations are available Sunday - Thursday only.
Friday or Saturday nights may be booked for one night as soon as the Wednesday before a weekend. Note the rate for Fridays/Saturdays.
This specific property includes exclusive access to Common House during your stay. Common House is a local membership based social club that offers a unique space to work, dine, and engage. There is a co-work space available during weekdays, a full service restaurant offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as a roof-top terrace with sweeping views of Charlottesville. Simply show the concierge confirmation of your Stay Charlottesville reservation for access.
In your room, you’ll find:
A private balcony on the alley side overlooking Common House
Twin Sleeper Sofa (let us know if you will use the sleeper sofa!)
Flat Screen TV with Apps/Local Channels
Iron & Board
Soap & Shampoo
Third Floor across from the Secretariat Room
Accessible by Stairs Only

Very pleasant and helpful.Property
Love, love, love this concept. Wonderful room for much less than the nicer hotels would charge. We definitely did not miss any of staffed features a typical hotel would have. In fact this was all around much easier. Loved the furnishings. Also we enjoyed the balcony - the view wasn't the best, but it didn't matter. Very convenient to parking, and perfect for enjoying the downtown mall on foot. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in Charlottesville.

I was able to book the property easily online.Property
We loved the location of the Townsman - it was conveniently located less than two blocks from the Jefferson Theater where we were seeing a concert that evening. We enjoyed walking on the mall, getting a meal, etc. without having to worry about parking. Our room, The Faulkner, was well decorated and quiet for the evening. It also smelled wonderfully of coffee, thanks to the coffee shop next door!

Loved the decor of the rooms - didn't feel at all like a hotel. Also loved being on the busy downtown mall and then walking through the hotel door and into a quiet space. The wifi worked great; I was easily able to work from the room.

Scott Stinson recommended The Townsman when we were at his winery our first day in town. He orchestrated the phone call to make arrangements and even gave us a discount! The woman I spoke to on the phone (sorry - can't remember her name) was extremely helpful, as well!Property
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The Townsman is conveniently located on the mall and is clean and modern! We would definitely recommend it!

I never received the expected email confirmation on my main address, but when I called your number, the problem was resolved very quickly by using an alternative email address. (I would hope that whatever the problem was can be resolved, as the email confirmation contains very important information, obviously.)Property
Very comfortable room. I like the availability of a small hotel on the Downtown Mall.
