Get Away: The Virginian Hotel
The classy Art Deco property in Lynchburg has reopened after a major renovation.
The Virginian Hotel, a downtown Lynchburg gem from the early 1900s, is slated to reopen in May after a three-year, $30 million renovation. The six-story Art Deco-style property is now part of Hilton’s Curio Collection and will offer 130 rooms and suites that feature high ceilings, high-definition television and cozy bathrobes. Some will also come with oversize high-back chairs and ottomans for comfy reading while overlooking Lynchburg. A lobby-level library will be stocked with books on Virginia history. Fuel up at the hotel’s coffee and wine bar, steakhouse or Skyline Grill Roof Top Bar, which will have a fire pit and view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Restaurants, boutique shops and Lynchburg’s Academy Center of the Arts—home to art talks and exhibits, concerts and pottery date nights—are a short stroll from the hotel. Rates begin at $159.
