I recently spent a week at Cambria during a family health crisis and could write a book and not say enough good things about this lovely, near-flawless property. The staff could not have been more welcoming or understanding. Various family members rotated in and out as we took turns staying the night with my sick mother, and the small, hardworking staff bent over backwards to help us all out. From the front desk staff to the young man who does the sweeping and errand-running to the shuttle drivers, good manners and graciousness abound.
Specifics: To say this place is clean is an understatement. It looks and smells spotless. Beds are beyond comfy and linens are crisp. Decor is modern, but not annoyingly so. The menu in the dining room is small but food is excellent. The gal who tends bar pours with skill, always good to have in a crisis. The hot tub is HOT. The pool is spotless. The complimentary coffee bar is excellent. The hotel is just a jot off I-581, with ample parking, some of it underground. The proximity to Roanoke Memorial is perfect, and an easy walking distance. But there is no need to walk when the obliging shuttle drivers will drop you at the front door, saving you the nightmare of parking in the somewhat distant garages. They will even shuttle you to and from the airport and the grocery store. Forgot your toothbrush or your room key or your whatever? No problem. Left your $100 Tempurpedic pillow behind -- as I foolishly did? No worries. They will ship it to you. Or hold it. Or whatever. You really do get the feeling that nothing is too much trouble, and that they have seen enough folks jittered up by family illness to know exactly what to say and do. All this at a bargain price, too.
Bottom line, for business or pleasure in the greater Roanoke area, you will not find a better run, more accommodating property than Cambria. I look forward to going back under happier circumstances.
