The facility opened July 10, 2005.
As the largest hotel and conference center in Blacksburg, Va., the Inn at Virginia Tech and Skelton Conference Center offers nearly 24,000 square feet of conference space, including a 700-seat ballroom, 10 conference rooms, and 147 hotel rooms and suites.
Guests may choose from two main dining options: Preston’s, a full-service restaurant and the more informal Continental Divide Lounge. Two private dining rooms, the 1872 Salon and the Old Guard, are available for smaller groups.
Benchmark Hospitality International, a Texas-based luxury hotel and resort company, took over management of the facility in January 2011.
The adjacent Holtzman Alumni Center houses the Virginia Tech Alumni Association and offices for associated university personnel, as well as the Grand Hall, museum, special collections library, and meeting rooms.
