270 miles Washington to Roanoke. We had a wonderful 5 year wedding anniversary! We spent today on "America's favourite drive" the Blue Ridge Parkway. Jet lag meant we were on the road by 8.30am! It was a 2.5 hour drive to the start of the parkway in Waynesboro. It wasn't really that far but the speed limits are pretty slow. Even 5 lane freeways are …
Nach einer kurzen Nacht ging es von Richmond weiter in Richtung Westen bis nach Waynesville VA wo wir auf dem Blue Ridge Parkway nach Süden fahren wollten. Mehr Infos zum Blue Ridge Parkway findet ihr auf den beiden folgenden Links:

We have seen ships in Boston, Baltimore, and Roanoke. Take time to look at the pictures and make a comparison of each ship. First is the Eleanor in Boston. This was the ship in which the Boston Tea Party occurred. In Baltimore we saw the USS Constellation which was a war ship in the early 1800's. Today, we boarded the Elizabeth II, which was a merchant ship that carried up to 50 men over to the New World. ...
... what is done with all the crops grown. Some of it is used in their restaurants and used in cooking demonstrations around the property but a lot of staff are able to take it home to eat. That sounded like an awesome perk to us!
Washington was also buried on his property. He died on December 14th 1799. Like we told you yesterday, there was a spot left for him to be buried in the ...
... first bear sighting! So it was cool the bear did not just run away - like they usually do. The hike to a camp site got us in late. On the way I managed to get a quick photo of a toad by a tree stump tho. After setting up camp, building a fire - it was off to sleep! We have 9 miles tomorrow, and would like to get to town around 11. Friday, May 23 2014 Woke up to.....biting bugs everywhere! I will be glad when I pick up my tent in Troutville today, it ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Hotel Roanoke & Conference Center, a Doubletree by Hilton Hotel
Christmas in a HOTEL
We had to stay in a hotel on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day with our children and were not looking forward to it. However, this was such a neat place I really do not think the children minded at all, and we certainly enjoyed our stay. Thank you Hotel Roanoke for making a bad situation great.
My husband & I spent our honeymoon night at the Hotel Roanoke this past December under their "Sweet Romance Getaway" Package. Because we booked the room at last minute we were worried that we would be stuck with 2 double beds, but much to our surprise we had been upgraded to a king! The front desk attendant was great, and instead of the complimentary 2 cookies we received a full can of their tasty chocolate chip cookies. She also said that room service would be calling us to ask when they should bring up the champagne and strawberries (another perk of the package)! Almost as soon as we walked into the room they had called to tell us that they would be up shortly. We were tucked away on the 5th floor overlooking downtown. The bed was the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever sleep on. I'm not sure if Doubletree has upgraded all the linens, but ours had soft sheets and a down comforter with duvet. We went down to the Pine Room to have a late snack and drink, and even though it was pretty crowded the band that was playing was entertaining. A little pricey with the drinks, but the food was nice. In the morning we ordered room service (perk) which was delicious. After a relaxing morning we had a late check- out, but we would have loved to have stayed. I would recommend this package to anyone seeking a much needed getaway! I give a BIG THANKS to the Hotel Roanoke for making my honeymoon night one to remember!
it was a beautiful hotel-loved the decor! The bed was very comfortable also. Unfortunately, it was hard to get a good night's rest with the doors in the hallway SLAMMING all night, and the baby screaming in the room next to us all night too! Apparently, we were given a suite split, so the room we had adjoined another families room. We loved being woken up at 4:30am by a screaming baby being heard through the walls and door-it sounded like the baby was in the room with us! The screaming child could be forgiven (just remember the walls are THIN), but it was never known when a door was going to be slammed. There would be quiet...and then... BAM a door in the hallway would bang shut causing us to jump in our own skin! Room service was great, if you don't mind spending $90+ on two soups, two fish entrees (salmon) and 3 sodas. The surroundings were so nice though, i would stay there again if I had to. I would just plan my visit to not be around such a busy time during the holidays!
The Hotel Roanoke is an impressive tudor-style building centrally located in downtown Roanoke. It was the perfect getaway weekend spot from Raleigh, NC. There is a glass enclosed pedestrian bridge leading from the property to the City Market area. The hotel staff was wonderfully gracious, professional and attentive. We loved the hot oatmeal chocolate chip cookies presented to us at check-in. Though our standard bedroom was small the bed itself was oh so comfortable and plush. We enjoyed indulging in the weekend breakfast buffet which included spoon bread and made to order omelets. For the athletically inclined, there is a state of the art fitness room, an outdoor pool, and a heated whirlpool. Your stay at the Hotel Roanoke is sure to be a pleasurable one.
I stayed here for the weekend and really liked it a lot. The architecture was beautifull and the service was great too. The rooms were a little worn but I enjoyed my stay so much I didn't care. I had a great dinner in the formal dining restaurant downstairs as well.
Although the lobby is very nice and the connection via skywalk is a bonus, I was very disappointed in what was supposed to be a 4-star experience--especially since I booked a Club Level room. The hotel claims on its website that club level rooms have extra amenities but that does NOT apply during the weekend, even if you plan to stay the week. They apparently remove the "plush robe" and the 'upgraded amenities' promised in the description of the room--the bath amenties were cheap-looking and tiny. The Club Lounge is open Sunday evening through Thursday only. After a call to the manager, I did receive a robe on Sat night, but had to ask for coffee amenities as well, although they are supposed to be standard. I expect much more from a hotel, especially when I am staying more than one night and am a member of the frequent guest program.
Nice old hotel
This is a nice hotel but does not have many amenities that one would expect of this type of hotel. The location is great though and the staff was very friendly albeit not overally professional. Certainly is the best place to stay in Roanoke.
My husband and I stayed at the hotel for Valentines weekend. I must say that I was very pleased with everything about the hotel. The room was nicely appointed and clean. The room service was excellent but a bit pricey (but what room service isn't?). The hotel lobby was just beautiful and I really enjoyed searching through the hotel and looking at all the wonderful pictures from the hotel's past. One of the most convenient things about the hotel is the enclosed walkway that is provided to the downtown area. There are many nice places to eat downtown and ample shopping. Also, there is an open air market.
Historic Hotel and Great Rooms
This hotel was built in the 1880's by the local railroad to attract tourists to the area and it is a gorgeous building. Service was prompt and the rooms were very nice. Room rates were very reasonable. There is also a nice outdoor market area with small restaurants and shops within walking distance.
I stayed here one night while passing through Roanoke. It is a beautiful hotel with a lovely setting. It is comfortable and conveniently located to downtown Roanoke (a walkway takes you right to 10-15 restaurants in a 2-3 block area). The rooms were clean and appeared to have been recently upgraded. I would stay here again.
