My brothers and I made the 5 1/2 drive to Wytheville to meet brand new Sheffey relatives, visit The Sheffey Elementary school and Sheffey School Road, because hey we're Sheffeys! I chose this hotel because it was not a chain hotel, the photos looked great and the location was right in town on the main street.
The rooftop lounge overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains and the main street was simply spectacular including the sun setting just before the rain clouds came.
The beds were comfy, the restaurant food was wonderful, the staff were all pleasant and helpful. Our only negative - the blue light glowing from the wall air conditioner.
The room itself was immaculate with a great contemporary design feel, the bathroom had plenty of towels (our room had no tub just a shower - super!)
And for the business traveller, the free wifi was easy to access and didn't drop signal.
If you plan to visit Wytheville, we can't recommend this hotel highly enough.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Bolling Wilson Hotel was originally built in 1927 as the George Wythe Hotel where it operated until the late 1960's. At that time, it was touted as a fire proof building due to its solid construction, which was important at the time as so many small towns had experienced fires which demolished many of their service facilities. When the property opened you could rent a room for $1.50 for a single and $2.50 for a double, how things have changed! There have been many a wedding and celebration held in the old George Wythe Hotel some 40 years ago and many more to come as the Bolling Wilson Hotel. Since its closure as a hotel in the 1970's it has enjoyed many lives as a bank. When the last bank decided to move and the building became available it was purchased by Bill and Farron Smith of Smith Enterprises, in 2010. ... more less
