I have stayed in Lynchburg many times (growing up in the area) and saw that this hotel was being built. When we stayed there over Christmas, it was a wonderful experience. The Christmas tree had a lit big red shoe (their trademark) at the top. There was even a small Christmas tree with shoe ornaments in our room. As many have already said, the building was an old shoe manufacturing plant. They have kept that theme going by keeping some touches from the old factory. The lights above the doors are from workbenches. There are pictures of various types of footwear on the doors. Breakfast is served in an old shoe shine kit. There isn't much to say about the breakfast, but it is delivered to your door and will hold you until something better. Trains do cross behind the hotel, but that is part of its charm. Yes, the area hotel is in is a depressed part of the city, but don't let that frighten you off. In general, Lynchburg is a safe city. I would hope that other businesses come to the area to provide their services. The building just behind our room would make an excellent mixed use establishment. The shower was huge, but the bathroom area could use some more hooks and lighting. The bed was quite comfortable, as was the rest of the furniture. You can even buy the furniture for your own home (saw it in the information notebook provided in the room).
