Attended a two-day conference, this time bringing my wife - who has very definite opinions about hotels.
Big sigh of relief, after two and a half days in Roanoke she wants to come back.
Hotel, food, service, excellent all the way around. She used the spa, pool and workout room and was delighted with everything.
But the best part (when I'm at a business conference) is that my wife simply walked over the bridge and went exploring downtown and had a wonderful time at the markets and small shops. This is a downtown redevelopment project that actually works, and the whole package (hotel, museums, downtown) has a nice synergy.
I'd say just the opposite, if you've got a day to look around, it's worth the stop. I got a conference-level price on the room, very competitive with others locally, and simply a better location. Parking is pay-parking but not exorbitant.
