I had the pleasure of staying here for the night this past weekend..
Like the reviews say don't let the Doubletree name sway you..
This hotel is part of the National Registry of Historic Hotels..
It is beauitful, when you walk in the lobby you feel like your back in history, with a big portarit of Robert E Lee, and the very nicely appointed lobby area...
We were greeted when we arrived at the hotel by the bellman and valet, you can either Valet your car ($12 per day) or self parking ($7 per day) do know its a little walk from the parking lot to the Front Entrance if you self-park and it is up-hill or down-hill depending..
It is located right in the Center of downtown Roanoke, there is a big skybridge that brings you over the railroad tracks and right into the city...
There are a number of restaurants and eateries and ATM's in the area, not to mention a beauitful Farmer's market during the weekends...
The check-in at the front desk was very good, and we were given a Bigger Room (Room 340)..
The room was the typical 2 double bedded room and had a partial view of downtown and the front entrance and railroad tracks..
The room had a nice picture of the old pamplet for the Hotel Roanoke, and there was an enclosed glass plate with the Hotel Roanoke 1882..(the year the hotel was originally built...
There's lots of history for this hotel and also a cool (with children) Railroad Museum about a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel (depending on what type of walker you are)
We never had any food at the hotel (was very busy) but looked very professional..
Check-out was a breeze as expected..
Would stay here again...
