The Hotel Roanoke stands out from the crowd--a historical hotel right next to downtown shops and historical attractions. A valet happily greets you and you immediately conclude you've made the right choice. Unfortunately, not. I had reserved a king bed, but was sent to a room with a two fulls. When I asked about it, the front desk said it was "subject to availability". The room was small, dirty--mucous--to put it politely--had been stuck to our headboard! The "executive lounge" is little more than a room they set aside and gave a fancy title. Next time, I will stay somewhere else for cleaner rooms and better value for money. If there are any high points, I rank service a 5 because all the employees were very helpful, and I give good marks to their small fitness center.
