My mother, my sisters, and I went to Hotel Roanoke on a girls overnight trip. We spent the extra money and stayed on the Executive Floor so we could have access to the executive lounge. Let me start out with the good things. All the food that was provided from the cookie when arriving, the hors d'oeuvres at night, and breakfast in the morning was excellent. Also the bed was really comfy and I loved the fact that the gym had individually wrapped headphones. The outside of the hotel and all of the common areas were beautiful and pristine.
On to the bad. For what we paid for the rooms I would have expected so much more. Though I can say that if you complain, they are really quick to try and make it up to you. From our rooms we could see the train station and at night there is a train that goes by every 2 hours AT LEAST. Hope you're not a light sleeper like my sister. I on the other hand travel with a box fan for ambient noise, thank goodness. We also had an AC leakage in one of the rooms that was dripping all through the night. We thought it was really cool that you could order movies through your TV that were still in the theater, but the movie we ordered was $20 before tax and it was choppy and very pixelated. (management took that off of our bill) Lastly, they are not to kind to people who do not pay the extra money to use valet parking. When we pulled up to the hotel, we were told that we had to move our car before we even checked in because they were about to be very busy. They even hassled us about wanting to unload our baggage before the car was moved.
