“Amazing hotel experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Driving into Roanoke the hotel is the first thing you see, and it takes your breath away. Sitting on top of the hill resembling a Grand Swiss Chalet, the hotel is the historic centerpiece of the city, so not only are you staying in an absolutely gorgeous historic hotel, you're staying at the city's main attraction!

Everything about the hotel is amazing. Located in the heart of the city, everything is within walking distance. Self parking is very easy and plentiful, and the staff are incredibly welcoming and friendly, always willing and ready to hold a door open for you, to help with your luggage and to offer information about the area. The lobby is more like a grand ballroom and we had to sit down to take it all in before we were ready to check-in!!

We stayed in an executive suite which did not disappoint. The suite was clean, spacious and comfortable, but more than that, the living area attached was bigger than any suite I have ever stayed in. There was no reason for us to leave the suite, we had everything we could possibly ever imagine needing, including a fireplace, dining area with chandelier lighting, office space and two bathrooms. I've never experienced such luxury.

The hotel experience made us feel like a million dollars and it's now the only place we will stay when in Roanoke.

We've always experienced great, friendly service. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The location is perfect for walking to downtown Roanoke to restaurants so you don't have to deal with the parking issue. We have visited this hotel a few times in recent years and it's our number one choice when we are in the area.

..seeing the Hotel up on the hill as you arrive takes your breath away. They welcome you at the front door and you feel instantly part of the old world feel. The restaurant is great, but really spent a lot of time in the Pine Lodge visiting with friends and cocktails. The rocking chairs on the front porch are a great add..we spent time chatting late night outside. Try the peanut soup.

Room Tip: The rooms are all lovely, but a view out over the mountains is really grand.

From the moment you pull up to the hotel, it just feels like home. To see people out on the rocking chairs or strolling across to the breezeway for a night on the town, it makes you smile. We love being welcomed into the grand lobby and greeted most pleasantly by the staff...not to mention, the delicious chocolate chip cookies a la Doubletree. We usually stay in an executive suite and enjoy the private lounge and treats and always, always have the breakfast buffet. I absolutely love the Hotel Roanoke...and it's history hits close to home in our family. I sure hope they never change a thing!

Room Tip: Corner Suites offer a great view of Mill Mountain and the city.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Roanoke. Our rooms were beautiful. There were six of us and we had a suite with a murphy bed, combined with a king room and a double room. It was perfect. The rooms were beautiful, as was the rest of the hotel. Everyone was friendly and helpful. The hotel is within walking distance of all the wonderful downtown shops and restaurants. We stayed three nights, but would have loved to stay longer.

The Doubletree hotel in Roanoke is an elegant old world hotel with so much great history. It is a large hotel and you could almost see attending a wedding for a local socialite here. We are hilton honors and were upgraded to a suite room which was very spacious and nicely appointed. I would definitely stay here again.

The Roanoke Hotel and conference center in Roanoke Va. turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. The hotel is beyond lovely. The room was beautifully appointed and spacious. The rates for this charmer were very inexpensive for what you received in amenities The staff was welcoming and very helpful. The Pine Pub is a great place to relax over a drink and an appetizer or even dinner. The only complaint I had was the self parking which was down the hill and with suitcases to maneuver it can be a bit of a challenge. In retrospect and my hint to you is drop off your luggage at the door and then park the car. Yes I know your all saying DUH, but being tired after along trip the mind was not working. Would I stay there again? Absolutely!

Room Tip: If you possibly can upgrade to a suite, more room and charm abounds.
