“Southern Hospitality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

This is an historic property and so it doesn't have some of the amenities of newer properties: microwaves, refrigerators, an indoor pool, but the efforts of the staff on hand make up for it.

We stayed for a busy Va tech football weekend. Our late check-in was handled with no issue and we appreciated the valet service and separate desk for Hilton Honors guests. Disappointed to see that the extra towels and waters pre-ordered were not in our room - in fact we only had 3 towels for a 2 queen room and no shampoo. As with many hotels these days - housekeeping can make or break the visit. The front desk sent them up right away as soon as I stopped by.

The Pine Room was nice for post-drive drinks. Sports on the tvs, billiards, a lively crowd and live music. Impressive scotch selection. Clearly a familiar-to-some bar mistress and cloudy glasses meant they trade on the out of towners staying there and long time locals. The weather was rainy or we definitely would have enjoyed the outdoor gas firepit.

We stayed on the Executive floor - separated by a keyed entry. Quiet halls, with an executive lounge offering light hors d' oeuvres (smoked salmon and chicken salad wraps post-game) and continental breakfast fare, coffees, fruit and sodas at no charge. The hours of the lounge were pretty limited ending at 9:30am and 9pm in the evening. Other than that the lone room perk seemed to be the plush robes available and wi-fi?

Breakfast in the Regency Dining Room was good, if pricey. Great old school service - very attentive even though we had the buffet. We were in a hurry to leave for the Tech game and didn't really get to enjoy the experience; wished there had been a less formal option available on property. Room service one evening for 2 scoops of ice cream and a bread pudding with two glasses of milk was $30 so not a value alternative.

Walking to and from your car if you choose to self-park will be a jaunt. Valet is $12 per day.

The hotel is a cool old property with local history and is within an enclosed bridge walk from points of interest. It's clearly a property of choice for special occasions and business events and the staff does make an effort, when asked, to take care of their guests. I just felt overbilled compared to other properties. As I mentioned in a review of a Roanoke restaurant - it's all relative and this must be one of Roanoke's finest.

Due to the cost, I might try the Hyatt Place or a Hilton Garden Inn for more value for my spend next time.

Room Tip: The executive floor was very quiet.

Excellently situated with convenient footbridge access directly to the downtown 'Center in the square' marketplace. The staff is extraordinarily friendly, efficient and professional. Room service food is awesome for the occasional rainy day, but be sure to check out the excellent restaurants and bars that are just a quick walk from the hotel entrance. Convenient pay parking in the adjacent lot. This historic hotel is very prestigious and has all the comforts I have come to expect from the Hilton brand.

Room Tip: Room 442 overlooks the front entrance and gives a great view of the railroad station and downtown...

Great place to stay in Roanoke. The hotel is beautiful. The bed was comfortable and the room was very nice! The staff at the hotel is excellent and very friendly. The hotel is easy to get to and is right in the middle of town so you can park and walk to downtown Roanoke.

This hotel has been around for sometime... They have a lot of history, but also have redo much of the hotel. The hotel is owned by VT.

Also ask the front desk Susan or Coline and tell them what you would like.

Room Tip: Make sure to get rooms away from Train

Hotel Roanoke was one of the recommended hotels for the recent CityWorks (X)po. One of the grand hotels constructed by the nation's railroads during the early 1900s, the Hotel Roanoke evokes memories of the days when luxury lodging went hand-in-hand with rail travel. Today the Hotel Roanoke provides a comfortable overnight experience regardless of the purpose for your visit to the city. Its proximity to City Market allows for an easy walk to a great in-town experience. Thanks!

My husband and I planned a long weekend away and were very happy with the accommodations. Hotel Roanoke is a wonder mix of old and new. The architectural features of the building are fantastic to see, the modern upgrades make the rooms extremely comfortable and the staff was extremely helpful and courteous. The location is also perfect to downtown with a skywalk to safely pass over traffic. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Roanoke.

The hotel is quite beautiful and a great location. Unfortunately valet lost our car keys delaying our departure. This did "taint' our experience. I rated service poorly only because they did not help with valet because it was contracted out.
