Inspired by a sense of adventure and yet grounded with a modern, Southern elegance, the Meriwether room lets you know you’ve arrived at a highlight of your travels.
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?
Parking: Parking for guests is located at 300 Preston Ave. in Charlottesville. There is one spot for each room located directly to the left of the main sign for the parking lot. Each Spot has signage that has "The Townsman" and the corresponding name of the room on them. Please only park in the spot designated for your room.
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
Is there an elevator?
Like most of downtown Charlottesville’s most charming buildings, we are not equipped with an elevator. All of our rooms are walk-ups, accessed by the stairs.
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.
In your room, you’ll find:
A private balcony on the alley side overlooking Common House
Flat Screen TV with Apps/Local Channels
Iron & Board
Soap & Shampoo
Second Floor across from the Poe Room
Accessible by Stairs Only
All guests of Stay Charlottesville receive 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.

Everyone was very kind and helpful given that our door did not close properly upon arriving. It helped make what could have been an issue a non-issue! We will be back thanks to our experience with your team.Property

Interacted online once with someone which was fine.Property
Room was well-decorated and very comfortable. The location within the walking downtown was amazing. We were expecting slightly more of a kitchen (microwave, full-sized fridge)
