Living large in Floyd…

Gretchen and I stayed at the new Hotel Floyd the other night.  It is a celebration of casual luxury and environmentally conscious design.

I have written about the hotel before as I have been impressed with the concept from the very beginning, but it is one thing to write about something and quite another to immerse oneself in the actual experience. Staying at the Hotel Floyd is a real treat.

This unique boutique hotel has been a hit with visitors and locals alike ever since it opened last year. Apparently almost every weekend is booked for the rest of the year.

The first phase has only 14 rooms and it seems to me that the phase two expansion to 40 rooms cannot come too soon.

We stayed in the Floyd Artist Suite which features the work of local artists including some of Gretchen’s pastels.

The Artist’s Suite has two bedrooms and a living room, with High Definition flat screen television in every room. Locally made handcrafted furniture used throughout the suite creates a stunning effect.

We really enjoyed the proximity to downtown Floyd. We were able to walk to a Chamber of Commerce After Hours Event that night and to the Blue Ridge Restaurant for breakfast the next morning.

I understand that there are plans for more apartments in downtown Floyd. I think there will be no difficulty finding tenants who want the amenities of living in the downtown area of this tiny hub of artistic activity in Southwest Virginia.
