The Radford Area
Located in the heart of Virginia’s New River Valley, visitors to our area are exposed to breathtaking natural beauty while driving through the Blue Ridge Mountains pastoral countryside. While this geographical region was once only rural, the vibrant higher education community has led to an energized and entertaining district for dining, shopping, and attractions in and surrounding the city of Radford. As one of the closest hotels to Radford University, we recommend that you reserve your spacious, well-appointed guest room or suite well in advance of the college graduation commencement season. We are just one mile from the downtown area and a short walking distance to the university.
If you need an excuse to visit your college student in this picturesque scenery, you won’t want to miss Skyline Drive through the mountains in the fall when the leaves are changing colors. Citizens from all over Virginia flock to the Shenandoah Valley to take in the spectacular scenery by the state’s mountainside. As one of the leaders of higher education in the United States, Virginia is also home to prominent and prestigious learning institutions, including Radford University and Virginia Tech, home of the NCAA football team at Hokie Stadium. Come for a convenient and comfortable visit with your college students, attend the major sporting events, or visit family and friends in the sprawling metro region encompassing Blacksburg and Christiansburg.
