Hospitality management company Charlestowne Hotels has opened the Little Mod Hotel in Charlottesville, VA. Adjacent to the University of Virginia (UVA) grounds, a revitalized 1960s building is now home to the 20-room hotel that embraces nostalgia through groovy furnishings, whimsical F&B offerings, and an unapologetically hip vibe, according to the company.
The hotel’s 15 guestrooms feature record players, retro bath tile and mid-century furniture. For guests looking to settle in and stay awhile, five apartment-style suites offer kitchens, workspace, a sitting area and an en-suite bathroom.
“We love the opportunity that comes with building a hotel brand,” said Kyle Hughey, CEO, Charlestowne Hotels. “Little Mod is a prime example of our in-house creative team developing an unexpected offering in a city characterized by tradition.”
The hotel features an airstream-style food truck, The Mod Pod, which joins Charlestowne’s expanding portfolio of 35-plus F&B outlets,
“Little Mod is a small but mighty hotel in Charlottesville, and we wanted our culinary experience to reflect that,” said Anthony Langan, VP, food & beverage, Charlestowne Hotels. “The Mod Pod brings together locals and guests through its accessible, outdoor offerings, while the casual spin we place on more elevated dishes injects a bit of playfulness back into dining.”
As Charlestowne’s third Virginia-based property, Little Mod Hotel joins Oakhurst Inn and The Bristol Hotel in the management company’s growing portfolio. Other recent additions include Hotel Verdant in Racine, WI; and The H Hotel in Midland, MI.
