I loved staying at Hotel Roanoke, especially during the Christmas season. It's classic and very well maintained. My room was comfortable with great beds and very clean. I love that you can step outside, walk to the walkway that crosses the railroad tracks (you get a great view of the city from the walkway) and you end up in the heart of downtown with an amazing mix of shops and restaurants. Definitely recommend a stay at this historic hotel and take time to walk around the halls and look at the historic photos.
