I live nearby and have had relatives stay at this hotel with no complaints. The location is good and near shopping, restaurants and about 5 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Are you still coming to Roanoke this spring? If so, would you like any advice on restaurants or things to do while you are there?
If you have a choice stay at Hotel Roanoke. Fantasitc grand old hotel that has been remodeled and is close to everything. Not that the HI is bad but if you have a choice it should be Hotel Roanoke hands down. Ask for a corprate rate.
