Safety is Priority

but we are open!

With Virginia’s phased reopening the Friendly City Inn remains committed to the safety and wellbeing of our guests. We have maintained our incredibly high standard of sanitation and cleanliness. We are also ensuring that our guests can adhere to social distancing practices and have access to hand sanitizing stations.

I just wanted to share a thought that Joel and I have been realizing on a very new level these last few weeks, and it’s this: small businesses really do need your help. I never ever would have thought about the implications in a situation like this, but now that we are small business owners and are surrounded by so many friends who are as well, I am really seeing things in a new light. This situation could very likely be completely devastating to a lot of small businesses, and everything you can do to support them is so important. We are thankful for every booking that comes in (which likely won’t be many at all for quite a while) because each one helps.

We also have made the sacrifice of eating out more than we normally would. Consider buying some gift cards or getting takeout from a small business during these next few weeks/months - you never know how much of a difference you’re making.
