Bristol’s First Boutique Hotel

In a city straddling two Southern states, The Bristol Hotel does them both proud—offering up barrel-aged Tennessee whiskeys and Virginia regional fare against the scenic backdrop of the Appalachian Mountains. Here, in the birthplace of country music, past and present connect in a striking 1925 architectural landmark turned first-ever boutique hotel. Ready to welcome guests who believe that blurring the lines inspires the soul.

Hotel History

Constructed in 1925 by Hardin Reynolds (son of Civil War veteran and nephew of Bristol’s tobacco mogul R.J. Reynolds), the Reynolds Arcade was initially built as a hotel, but became a professional office space known as the Executive Plaza. As the city’s most prominent office building of the early 20th century, the Executive Plaza was a professional office space for physicians, attorneys, accountants, and government officials. Classical Revival style elements such as the Roman arched entryway, stucco exterior, and display windows still remain from the original structure.
