“Fabulous through and through”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Excellently situated with convenient footbridge access directly to the downtown 'Center in the square' marketplace. The staff is extraordinarily friendly, efficient and professional. Room service food is awesome for the occasional rainy day, but be sure to check out the excellent restaurants and bars that are just a quick walk from the hotel entrance. Convenient pay parking in the adjacent lot. This historic hotel is very prestigious and has all the comforts I have come to expect from the Hilton brand.

Room Tip: Room 442 overlooks the front entrance and gives a great view of the railroad station and downtown...

Great place to stay in Roanoke. The hotel is beautiful. The bed was comfortable and the room was very nice! The staff at the hotel is excellent and very friendly. The hotel is easy to get to and is right in the middle of town so you can park and walk to downtown Roanoke.

This hotel has been around for sometime... They have a lot of history, but also have redo much of the hotel. The hotel is owned by VT.

Also ask the front desk Susan or Coline and tell them what you would like.

Room Tip: Make sure to get rooms away from Train

Hotel Roanoke was one of the recommended hotels for the recent CityWorks (X)po. One of the grand hotels constructed by the nation's railroads during the early 1900s, the Hotel Roanoke evokes memories of the days when luxury lodging went hand-in-hand with rail travel. Today the Hotel Roanoke provides a comfortable overnight experience regardless of the purpose for your visit to the city. Its proximity to City Market allows for an easy walk to a great in-town experience. Thanks!

My husband and I planned a long weekend away and were very happy with the accommodations. Hotel Roanoke is a wonder mix of old and new. The architectural features of the building are fantastic to see, the modern upgrades make the rooms extremely comfortable and the staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The location is also perfect to downtown with a skywalk to safely pass over traffic. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Roanoke.

The hotel is quite beautiful and a great location. Unfortunately valet lost our car keys delaying our departure. This did "taint' our experience. I rated service poorly only because they did not help with valet because it was contracted out.

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.
