Ribbon Cutting Signals Official Opening for New Residence Inn Hotel

March 28, 2016

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (NEWSPLEX) — After months of construction and a lot of man power, a snip of a ribbon signaled three years of hard work coming to fruition. The new Residence Inn on West Main Street is open for business.

“We’re feeling a lot of relief,” said General Manager Eric Pfister.

Pfister, along with sales manager Regina Dodd and their team, opened up the hotel after a ribbon cutting ceremony with the Charlottesville Regional Chamber of Commerce.

“We expect to be very successful in this area,” said Pfister. “We’ll bring a lot of tax revenue to the city.”

The seven-story hotel is built as an extended stay, with options of one and two bedrooms or studio suites. All 124-suites also have full kitchens.

The hotel also has amenities like a pool, office space, lounge space and a restaurant bar.

Dodd says the decor was chosen thoughtfully with the city in mind. Much of the artwork featured in the lobby are photos around the city blended with abstract art. Even a glass map of the city of Charlottesville, in the lounge area, makes you feel at home.
