Prime location and good servicefrom girlluxe
Good place to stay for the bar examfrom triAdvisor
The room service is good, which is great because you can stay in your room and avoid overhearing conversations about the exam. Another plus is that almost all of the guests at the hotel during the exam are taking the exam, so everyone is quiet at night. Several of my friends stayed at hotels that were half full of kids who were in Roanoke for the Little League World Series. Also, the hotel had a breakfast buffet with "to go" items, which made getting a good breakfast easy. I'm not sure if the hotel usually has this buffet, it might have been just for the exam. Finally, the bed was comfortable. I slept well despite my anxiety about the exam.
On the downside, the hotel is right next to railroad tracks that are used heavily at night by freight trains. Request a room on the side of the hotel away from the tracks. Also, the AC units make a very loud clicking noise when they turn off.
In all, this is probably one of the better places to stay during the Virginia bar exam.

Hotel Roanoke - Beautiful!from A TripAdvisor Member
Unfortunately, we did not spend a lot of time in the hotel because we were out and about, but our room was very clean, large (two double beds) and comfortable. We sank into the pillows and soft bedding, and the rooms were quiet. The bathroom was stocked with Neutrogena products - if you care about the quality of toiletries in hotels :). We had a partial view of downtown Roanoke.
While I did enjoy this hotel, I think charging for parking was a bit silly. I understand it in New York and other large cities cramped for space, but not in Roanoke. I do adore this "star city of the south," though, and if I had to stay at a hotel here again, this would be it.
Weekend Escape in Roanokefrom YPayne
The view of the mountains was mediocre from the hotel. Our hotel package included a buffet breakfast, which was pretty good. It included an omelet station.
Roanoke was a little sleepy for my tastes but I guess if you are looking to relax your entire trip you can stay in town and find a decent steak dinner or a burger. If you are looking to venture out and really see a little natural splendor, visit the Natural Bridge and the Peaks of Otter. Have lunch at the Peaks of Otter or take a hike. I must warn you; a drive or hike up the Peaks is not for those that prefer not to look out of airplane windows – like me. However, I still found the views to be spectacular, in an intimidating way.
Hotel Failed to meet expectationsfrom Lord Throgmorton
s a Doubletree!!!!from awelch2000
Have to say, best Doubletree I've ever stayed in, hands down. Room was large, clean, and nicely appointed. Had a nice view out over Roanoke to the yellow stone St. Andrew's Cathedral. Apparently, the hotel itself was built in 1882 and was purchased and restored by Virginia Tech. The National Register of Historic Places named the Hotel Roanoke one of the "Historic Hotels of America." Lives up to the billing. This place is beautiful.
High speed internet in the room and room service does a good job. That said, easy walk across the railroad tracks to the main downtown area where there are plenty of restaurants.
If I'm ever in Roanoke again, this is my place.
Top Local Tips for Roanoke
Great Dining From someone who grew up in Roanoke:Best Italian - Italianos, Norbertos; Best Upscale Dining - Regency Room at Hotel Roanoke, Frankie Rowland's; Best Bakery/Cafe - Wildflour. If you are looking for modern, ecclectic food go to Metro. If you want a great overall dining experience, Wertz's Restaurant & Wine Bar is a gem. Young hot spots tend to be Corned Beef, Cornerstone, and Buffalo Wild Wings.
Fine Dining Roanoke has a large selection of great restaurants. Make sure you check out the following hot spots when you're in town: Frankie Rowlands Steak House, Arzu's, Carlos Brazilian Int'l Cuizine
Things to do in Roanoke Roanoke is a nice city with a charming downtown. If you have a few days to spend in Roanoke I suggest the following: 1. Visit the Mill Mountain Zoo - it's not big but a nice little trip to up to and nice exhibits 2. Visit the Roanoke Star - I really enjoyed this and it gives you a great view of the Roanoke Valley - the star itself is huge 3. Visit the Farmer's Market and downtown Roanoke - lots of cool little shops and restaurants--very charming 4. It's still under construction but the Art Museum of Southwester Virginia is almost open and the new building looks spectacular and will add a gem to downtown Roanoke. You can see it from the hotel. Some parts of it are already open. Enjoy Roanoke, it's a great town.
