Retro Hospitality began providing hotel management services at The Clifton in March 2019. Located in Charlottesville, Virginia and originally constructed in 1799, The Clifton is one of the premier luxury inns in the United States. Featuring 20 beautifully appointed guest rooms, The Clifton maintains a wine cellar with over 100 different wines, the Copper Bar and 1799, our award winning restaurant headed by Michelin starred Chef Matthew Bousquet.
“The Retro Hospitality management team have worked tirelessly to support our hotel. They are a fully engaged partner maintaining a constant presence on property, they consistently communicate with ownership and Retro is truly results driven. In the first six months of managing The Clifton, we have never seen hotel occupancy so high and we are beginning to unlock this hotel’s value like we envisioned when we purchased it in 2017.”
