RADFORD, Va. – The Highlander Hotel Radford is now accepting reservations for visitor stays and special events beginning April 1, 2023.

Adjacent to Radford University, this new, independent, lifestyle hotel celebrates the area’s Scottish and Irish origins; delivers spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains; and plans to offer amenities such as a coffee bar, an in-lobby visitor center with concierge, a rooftop terrace, and 6,000 square feet of meeting and event space.

The $40 million Highlander Hotel Radford development project began in April 2021 and was made possible by a public-private partnership between Radford University, the Radford University Foundation, design firm Blur Workshop, Preston Hollow Capital, S.B. Ballard Construction Company, and Aimbridge Hospitality.

Andrew Casperson, vice president of operations for Aimbridge Hospitality says, “We are eager to celebrate area commencements, sporting events, meetings, weddings, and other important special occasions with our guests in this distinctive new setting. And we are already looking forward to a very busy inaugural season that will include special events for both Radford University and Virginia Tech graduation and the grand opening of our four-star restaurant, Bee and Butter.

“What I am most excited about is how the Highlander Hotel Radford really captures the dynamic energy of this area. For me, this project really underscores what great minds at work can accomplish through collaboration. Very soon, this beautiful property will offer an unmatched level of service, a respectful nod to the region’s history and culture, and memorable sophistication for our region’s growing number of out-of-town visitors and guests,” John Cox, Radford University Foundation CEO says. “The opening of this new property is an extremely exciting milestone for many at, and affiliated with, both Radford University and our broader New River Valley region. This new asset is going to be very valuable for travel and tourism in Southwest Virginia and we are certainly very proud to be a part of it.”
