New hotel to be built in Bedford

By  | 

BEDFORD, Va. (WDBJ7) A new hotel is in the works for the Town of Bedford.

The name is not being released yet, but we're told it will be a business class hotel.

It will be built right off of Route 460 next to the US Army's Reserve Training Center.

Developers say the hotel will help with tourism and bring jobs to the town.

"One of the things that is missing is a business class hotel. It's one of the tools in the box that is needed for development, so we are hopefully going to put this last tool in the box and let the area grow," Developer James Oliver said.

If everything goes according to plan, construction will start in late spring of next year and open its doors the year after that.
