Roanoke, Virginia, USA

Roanoke, in Southern Virginia was described as a "typical Southern town" to me by Lisa, who knows these sorts of things; her brother is the general manager at the Hotel Roanoke; we visited as part of a "Whistle Stop" family tour ...

Placing pictures of the hotel we stayed in at the top of a page on this site is a bit unusual - I normally talk about the place first. But in the case of Roanoke, the two are intertwined.

The hotel was built in 1882 by the Norfolk and Western Railroad, whose "hub" is less than 100 yards from the building, and over the years it grew from 34 rooms to more than 10 times that size. In 1989, the railroad donated it to Virginia Polytechnic Institute (VPI), and it was re-opened in 1995 after a total refurbishment and the addition of a conference centre; it's now a fabulous luxury hotel with the decor of the 19th century, but with the comforts of the 21st.

As well as the older buildings, there's much new in Roanoke - both in the city centre and outskirts.

Both Ethernet and Wireless networking was available in the room; a good fast connection too. I'm told that at the time of writing, the Hotel Roanoke is the only one in the area with both forms of networking throughout. Phil - we love your place!
