VINTON, Va. (WDBJ) - The town of Vinton is now accepting proposals for a new hotel to attract more business and keep that money in the area.

This has been a long-time desire for the town council to be able to retain more visitor traffic from local sports and other special events.

The town’s manager says the location would be on the intersection of South Pollard, Cedar and First streets.

This comes after months of economic analysis, research and meetings with developers.

”If they have a hotel in the community that they’re there visiting in the community, they’ll spend more time and more revenue within the town limits, so we can take those and we can return it back into services or different capital projects,” says Richard Peters, Vinton town manager.

The town has yet to receive any applications, but expects with the property size, the hotel would fit approximately 80 to 100 rooms.
