Red-Brick Charm Meets Modern Sophistication

Eclectic Hotel in Charlottesville

Kimpton The Forum Hotel champions the spirit of connection and community. The five-story Jeffersonian-style building is as grand as it is inviting—but it’s not all pomp and circumstance here. Inside the stately exterior, guests will discover a vibrant, modern space with eclectic gathering spots, from a lively lobby living room and several tempting dining options to high-tech meeting rooms and an impressive lecture hall. Behind the hotel, a flourishing botanical garden and arboretum invite relaxation and contemplation. Both inside and out, The Forum creates possibilities—to celebrate, collaborate, learn, reflect, connect - and get a really great night’s sleep in our luxurious and contemporary rooms, of course. Not to mention, Charlottesville was named Wine Enthusiast's Wine Region of the Year. Visitors looking to experience the Monticello Wine Trail can gather, relax, and indulge in style at The Forum.
