I grew up in nearby coalfields and always thought of this place as the ultimate luxury hotel. Va Tech and Hilton have done a credible job recreating past elegance-but the place just misses. Rooms are fine,very comfortable bed, bathroom fine, lobby and public areas have old look,but conference center detracts for casual guest ambiance.This aspect,including many conferees running about , is probably a necessary price to pay for the place being reopened at all. The brightest spot is classic dining room, complete with traditional dogwood pattern china and white coated waitstaff. The menu is what it was-Peanut soup, SheCrab soup, various traditional seafood and meat entrees. Food was excellent.
The overall negative is overprice.4/5 star price for 3 star overall experience. We still enjoyed a brief return to yesteryear.
