Travelers will now have a new place to lay their head when passing through Bristol, VA.

BRISTOL, Va. -

It's official. Bristol, Virginia's city council signed a contract Tuesday morning making way for Hilton Garden Inn on Exit 7.

City Councilman Ed Harlow says it's a $9 million investment and the business will open up 40 full time jobs.

The hotel will locate near Cracker Barrel. Harlow calls this a significant addition to the city and says he hopes the hotel will lead to more development on the north side of Interstate 81 off of Exit 7.
