University Of Virginia Opens Conference Center

May 4, 2000 -- The Cavalier Inn, at 105 N. Emmet St., now offers year-round conference services to the public.

The University of Virginia Foundation purchased the Cavalier Inn in 1998 and made extensive renovations to the exterior, guest rooms and main floor. David Rau and Associates, a Richmond-based architectural firm, redesigned the lobby with a collegiate look. In addition, 4,000 square feet of ground-floor meeting space have been renovated and food service for hotel functions has been arranged with U.Va. Catering.

With completion of the renovations, the Cavalier Inn now has a total of six meeting rooms available for use by the University and Charlottesville communities. All of the main-floor meeting rooms are connected to the University’s high-speed fiber optic communications system.

To meet the growing need for Internet connectivity, each of the 118 guest rooms has a dedicated data port. The hotel also has a fully equipped business center.

The Cavalier Inn is managed by Newport Hospitality Group Inc., a hotel operator based in Williamsburg.

Reporters, editors and meeting planners are invited to an Open House on Monday, May 8, at 5 p.m.
