A large group of friends, alumni, and their familes stayed here in October 2013 for a Hokie football weekend. They had a two night minimun, reservations were not accepted on-line, and the rate was steep for the area, but all understandable due to high demand for rooms during the season. The bonus is the free tailgate the hotel puts together up on West Campus Drive, close to the stadium, with free food and beverages for hotel guests. They also have a shuttle van to bring you to the tailgate (even though we ended up walking), and also to drop off and pick up downtown for the bars and restaurants at night. The hotel bar was a great place for us to put a big table together and catch up with our friends - the prices were very reasonable and service was excellent.
Breakfast was fine, standard hotel buffet set up, with hot and cold items and a waffle maker. A bit pricey for what you're getting but still convenient. There are also a number of restaurants, and a Starbucks for those with that habit, just around the corner, as well as the Volume II bookstore and a great Kroger.
King room was spacious and clean and included a mini-fridge. Friends had suites, with kids on the pull out sofa and a separate bedroom for the adults. They also had a fridge, microwave and sink area, which was very convenient.
Overall it was very clean and comfortable, with great service, and perfect for our football reunion weekend.
