Travel, hotels, directions

We recommended two hotels within walking distance of the UVA campus:  the Cavalier Inn (105 N. Emmet St.) and the Hampton Inn & Suites at 900 W. Main St.—though there are dozens more hotels and B&Bs within easy driving distance. For directions and a campus map, see UVA's interactive WebMap, or just visit GoogleMap.
