Get Away: Quirk Hotel Charlottesville
Surround yourself with artsy comfort on your next visit to UVA.
Surround yourself with art at the new Quirk Hotel in Charlottesville’s historic downtown. Opened in June 2020, the property includes a contemporary main hotel adjacent to two historic homes dating back to the 19th century. Similar to its sister, Quirk Hotel Richmond, the new hotel features works by local and national artists throughout the property, in guest rooms, public spaces and the Quirk Gallery. The bi-level gallery and shop also serve as gathering places for artist talks, receptions and trunk shows. Check the gallery site for dates.
Each of the 80 guest rooms and suites features floor-to-ceiling windows, a modern desk, pink sound machine, and custom headboards designed by a Richmond-based abstract painter. A handful of rooms include private balconies.
The Lobby Bar, the centerpiece of the hotel’s grand entranceway, offers wines from local vineyards and the Shenandoah Valley, and is home to a “Love & Happiness” hour named for the whisper pink Benjamin Moore paint color found in Quirk hotels, which are part of Hyatt’s Destination Hotels collection. Head to The Pink Grouse, the property’s signature restaurant, for small plates and more, and to Bobboo, a barrel-aged spirits bar for whiskeys from around the world. Have thin crust pizza and cocktails indoors or out at Q Rooftop and enjoy sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Quirk Café, located at street level in one of the historic buildings, is a favorite coffee spot for guests and locals alike.
Rates begin at $250 per night. If you’re bringing your dog, add on the $150 “Posh Pups” package, which includes Quirk dog toys, a “Dog in Room” door hanger and a $100 refund after room inspection. // Quirk Hotel Charlottesville, 499 W.
