BLACKSBURG, Va. (WFXR) — The Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center is preparing to transition back to a full-service hotel and conference center starting June 1.
Last August, the inn became housing for more than 300 students. Three of the inn’s four floors were converted to student housing to help meet the increased need for on-campus housing.
As part of its transition, The Inn at Virginia Tech is unveiling room improvements and renovations that have been ongoing this spring. This includes new queen-sized beds, TVs, and coffee makers. Renovations are also underway in the conference center and will include upgraded technology for enhanced videoconferencing.
Managing director Tom Cupo said his highest priority remains the health and safety of the inn’s guests and team members. He and his team are monitoring information from university experts, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Virginia Department of Health, and hospitality industry professionals.
The Inn at Virginia Tech is increasing the frequency of property-wide cleaning and disinfecting — with extra focus paid to high-touch surfaces and public spaces, such as the front desk, door handles, public bathrooms, and room keys.
