Note that there are two Hampton Inns listed on this page. This location is approximately 3.3 miles from the Medical Center. However, the location offers free shuttle service to the Medical Center (or around Charlottesville) from 7am-11pm and we continually hear good things about this service.
Many other chains also have hotels throughout the Charlottesville area. You can contact the hotel 1-800-# or let us know if you prefer a specific hotel and need the phone number.
Airport Information: The local airport is the Charlottesville Albemarle Airport: http://www.gocho.com/ The website has information about flights, rental cars, and other travel information.
There are parking garages across from the Medical Center, but they have hourly rates and are expensive ($4 per hour); we strongly suggest to either
(1) stay in a hotel close enough to walk or
(2) look for a hotel that offers free shuttle service each morning and evening to drop you at the UVA Medical Center
If it is not possible to stay nearby or at a hotel with shuttle services, you can:
(3) go to Parking and Transportation Office first thing Monday morning (7:30 am) and get a permit ($4 for one week) to park at University Hall which has a shuttle every few minutes to the Medical Center.
