The Hotel Roanoke dates back to when railroads were king. The hotel originally belonged to the Norfolk Southern Railroad (and many others before them) and was a short walk up the hill from the train station (now a railroad museum interesting in its own right). The hotel sported a 5 star restaurant. Remodeled 20 years ago (after being closed down for several years, the hotel belongs to Virginia Tech (managed by Doubletree) and is attached to a conference center shared with the city of Roanoke. The rooms have been remodeled to create space closer to today's standards. Bathrooms are still small. The furniture is a vintage look and indeed in places, is vintage. The service is very good, the staff friendly and helpful. Self parking is available but a walk uphill to the hotel. Valet service is available. The hotel has a lot of nooks and crannies to meet in. The conference center can hold smallish (400 - 600) conferences (although not that many can be housed in the hotel itself). Roanoke's art museum, The Taubman, is within a few hundred meters walk from the hotel and the Roanoke Market area just across the walkway over the railroad tracks. Good food and things to see and do.
