The closest Marriott property to my work at the University of Virginia is the Courtyard UVA Medical Center. I find myself staying at this property once or twice a year usually due to inclement weather as I'm a designated employee who is required to report to work regardless of weather conditions. My office operates an emergency call center and we are staffed 24/7/365.
I have found that this CY property is always a solid choice. It's clean, reliable, and well maintained. Most people choose this property due to its location. It's is within walking distance to many buildings at the University Medical Center and the Central Grounds area of the University. There are also many restaurants within walking distance of the University Corner District.
The hotel provides free parking in their garage which is great in the winter time when I stay here so I don't have to worry about cleaning off my car. A new Autograph Hotel is currently being built across the street from this property which I'm really looking forward to. Until then this will be my preferred choice for inclement weather stays near work.
