My husband and I stayed here with our two young children (a toddler and an infant) on December 26, 2009 after determining that Roanoke is the approximate halfway point for our trip from New York to Nashville. What a pleasant surprise! The hotel is an enormous tudor that is a significant part of the Roanoke skyline. The updates (I assume done when the hotel was acquired by Doubletree) are modern, yet the hotel retains its traditional look and atmosphere. The front desk was a bit slow, but not slow enough to truly warrant complaint. We booked a Queen room for a very reasonable price through the hotel's website but were upgraded to an extremely roomy and well-appointed suite with a large flat screen television in each of the two rooms. Furnishings were new and tasteful yet worked well with the character of the hotel. Even with two cribs, the bedroom was one of the more spacious I've stayed in. We ordered room service for breakfast and found the food very good and reasonably priced as compared to comparable hotels in larger cities. A nice bonus: the hotel was decorated to the nines for Christmas with a large number of trees decorated by local businesses. The location is very nice--walking distance to a pleasant downtown and numerous restaurants. It's also minutes from I-81. All in all, we were very impressed.
