“unexpectedly lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2007

After a weary several days traveling through Appalachia I was not at all sure what I would find in Marion VA. What I found was a gorgeously renovated hotel, with top notch customer service and funishings to die for (the bed was so comfortable I actually slept in the next day). I will make it a point to stay at this hotel when next I am in Marion.

The staff knew my name, my room was pristine, my meeting room was already set up and catering was lovely. Having coffee in the main lobby was kind of a switch from being able to make it in the room, but there were several little nooks where people can sit so when the staff offered to bring it to me I declined and set out for the nearest easy chair. The restaurant was pretty good, although I only got to experience lunch so I can't comment on dinner (Macados down the street, basically sandwich fare). Marion around the hotel has a lovely small town feel, and driving through Hungry Mother state park afforded lovely nature views.
