The Draftsman has an interesting and unique architectural style with clean, pleasant rooms. It also offers a superb dining experience at the Ridley, which is attached to the hotel. The staff is very welcoming and helpful, and the location is within walking distance of UVA.

Great location. Walkable to UVA campus and downtown C’ville. Price I paid for our room was steep I thought. Also, I booked a month or so in advance and when I looked at rooms available closer to the check in date the prices were much lower. So I felt a bit ripped off. Carpet was a little stained. Sink did not drain properly. Staff were great. We had a room on a high floor. But with all the new and ugly construction nearby that doesn’t make a difference in the view or anything.

Good for a night
The hotel was clean and very modern. The bed was very comfortable, but the room was small and the "city view" was of the parking lot across the street.
