Nestled in the shadows of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Charlottesville is a blend of cultural, natural and artistic history. Omni Charlottesville Hotel puts you close to everything. Located on the historic Downtown Mall, the hotel is steps away from live theatre, music, and cinema and is surrounded by a collection of 120 shops and 30 restaurants and outdoor cafes.

No trip to Charlottesville is complete without a visit to five historic sites that have played a unique role in American history: Monticello, the University of Virginia, Ash Lawn-Highland, Historic Court Square and Michie Tavern. If time runs short and you must choose, Monticello and Montpelier are musts, Ash Lawn is amazing and the Blue Ridge Parkway offers glimpses of heaven on earth.
