Construction Timeline Set on Bristol, VA Sessions Hotel Project

Developers of the long-awaited Sessions Hotel in Bristol, VA have finally announced a timetable for constructions and opening.

Construction itself is now scheduled to begin early next year, with a 2019 opening date. The $20M project includes tearing down the former KSS building on State Street, and combining the former Jobbers Candy factory, Service Mills and Owen Equipment buildings.

In addition to a 70-room hotel, the project will also have two restaurants run by chef Travis Milton. One, called Simply Grand, will be casual dining- the other, Shovel & Pick, will be a dinner-only fine dining restaurant. The latter is set to open first by the end of next year- both restaurants are expected to be open by April of 2019.
