Description
At Hotel A, the cellar kitchen and dining hall were devoted to the preparation and serving of food on the west side of the passage and the domestic spaces east of the center passage were the private domain of the hotel-keeper. The student rooms, while attached to the hotel, are all independent units. Functioned as dining hall until 1907-08; became Physiological Laboratory until 1928. From 1928-2011, the offices of the Virginia Quarterly Review, a nationally renowned journal of literature and social commentary. Restored 1965 and 2016. Now the home of the Center for Global Inquiry and Innovation (CGI2). -- Mesick Cohen Wilson Baker Architects, Hotel A : University of Virginia, historic structure report, 2012
