The Tapestry Collection by Hilton has added the 183-room Virginia Crossings Hotel & Conference Center in Glen Allen, Va., to its portfolio. The property is the second to join the group of independent upscale hotels.
"Virginia Crossings Hotel & Conference Center truly reflects our dedication to handpicking hotels that provide travelers the best of both worlds - original hotels with the world-renowned hospitality of Hilton and our Hilton Honors program," said Mark Nogal, global head of the Tapestry brand. "An intimate and spacious retreat for both business and leisure travelers, Virginia Crossings honors the region's heritage while also offering everything that savvy, modern travelers appreciate."
The hotel, which is a member of IACC (formerly the International Association of Conference Centres), features more than 28,000 square feet of event space marked by natural lighting. Its style is reminiscent of a Southern estate, and the grounds have a variety of gardens and courtyards. Amenities include the Crossings Golf Course, designed by prolific architect Joe Lee, as well as a state-of-the-art, 24-hour fitness center; a sand volleyball court, and a large outdoor swimming pool. An outdoor terrace overlooking the pool offers views of the surrounding area.
Two regionally flavored eateries are on-site: The Tavern serves Southern-style food in a casual environment, and the Glen Restaurant, with its brick wood-burning fireplace, features seasonal buffet-style dishes made with local and regional ingredients.
"From our two great restaurants to the hotel's location within minutes of top attractions that include Kings Dominion amusement park and Richmond Raceway, we appeal to a broad base of travelers seeking memorable experiences while being backed by one of the world's leading hospitality companies," said Wende Blumberg, general manager of the property. "By joining Tapestry Collection by Hilton, we are grateful to be a part of this growing upscale collection brand that offers us the freedom to keep our independent spirit while also tapping into the award-winning Hilton Honors program."
